I am going to bring up the concept of false starts.
Those of you that follow me know I've taken longer to write this book than I usually do. To be fair I wrote the first book in another series in there and did all sorts of firsts on other things.
There is a roughly 24,000-word document entitled 'AbortedDESCENT' in my files on my computer because that version just made me writhe with self-loathing. The story wasn't what I thought it should be so I canned it. Not bad writing, just the twisted version of a book I wasn't yet ready to write.
It would be lovely to announce a release date with the new cover but I'm about halfway done with the first draft right now. Who needs that kind of pressure?
It is coming though and if you're impatient for DESCENT then that gives me hope I've done a good job of hooking you into Cass and Silver's lives.
