April sees me unusually organised with my work.
With ‘A Fury of Angels’ out for beta reading, I’ve already listed the book provisionally on Amazon, and its now available for pre-ordering, should anyone be keen to read it. 🙂
There’s plenty of time for me to make final changes to the MS before it goes live, but I thought I’d set myself a publication deadline in order to get this, the final story in the (first) trilogy completed and put to bed.
Put to bed? Nah!
It ought to be rising with the lark, ready for the day ahead, its tummy filled with tasty breakfast!
Just to demonstrate that Amazon’s pre-ordering system works, I found this whilst browsing:
Also available for pre-order in Japan. Don’t you love the 21st Century?
Have a great day!
I must now Write On. Half a million words aren’t going to write themselves!

A Fury of Angels, Andrew Toynbee, angel, demon, fiction, novel, paranormal, short stories
Back in June, I wrote a blog post about my aim to achieve Quarter of a Million words by midsummer. That particular goal was achieved, and more, so I looked ahead and wondered if it would be madness to aim for half a million before the end of 2015.
Crazy, I thought. Half a million?
Now, at the time of writing, I’ve somehow (and it still amazes me) racked up 410,000 real words, most of them the in order right.
(Yes, I know I did the same joke back in June) *shrugs.*
So, at this point, half a million words before the year end seems achievable. My target for the end of September (this week), if I had been writing consistently, was 375,000. Bang. Blown that figure out of the water.
How have I been able to put down so many words this year? Having a whole string of short stories to write has been a major part of this, leaving me with no shortage of writing material. Got a block? Simply skip over to another story until the block passes.
The downside of all this is that my third book, and the last in the trilogy, ‘A Fury of Angels,’ has slipped behind schedule, so if I’m to complete it in time for my editor to savage (kidding!) in January, I need to put aside at least a month to complete it.
If only I had a cloning machine…
