I have finally completed the first draft of my upcoming fantasy novel, ‘The White Dagger of Albathon’. In truth it was completed about 2 weeks ago but ‘life has happened’ and I was distracted from being able to update the blog.
Now starts the process of ensuring the grammar is correct, that the words flow from the pages and that the story is free from contradictions within the twisting plot of this fantasy tale.
A couple of areas of the novel may also benefit from adding more detail for the reader and so as the editing process begins I expect the size of the novel to increase slightly.
I don’t have a target date for release yet, other than to say it will be out sometime in 2017. I am thrilled with how it has turned out so far and can’t believe that I was able to put something like this together. I began writing last December and have been working at it, on and off, for the last 11 months. There’s still quite some way to go but most importantly, the words are down and the polishing of this young adult fantasy can begin. I say ‘young adult’ but in all honesty, just like the ‘Harry Potter’ stories, this novel should be a thrilling read for all ages.
Do follow along as this epic tale comes to fruition, I’m so glad I started to write it and truly hope that when the book finally goes on sale it will captivate and allure all those who dare to delve within its magical pages. 🙂
