I've exceeded the first draft goal of AMMON, which was 80,000 words. AMMON is now 90,000 words (345 pages), and the story is still going. I see about 20-30 more pages to wrap-up. Then I'll go back and hopefully be able to tighten some. I've been posting the progress updates on the sidebar. I'm really excited about how AMMON is turning out. When I was about 65 pages into it I thought--this is sounding too lighthearted. It's no longer light-hearted, but it's much lighter than ALMA THE YOUNGER. It's been refreshing to write a hero that is good from the beginning of the book and remains so throughout--though there are plenty of conflicts. But Ammon is tough enough to handle them.
