However, I'm not sure if it will conclude with Chapter 25 or 26.
It's just a question of how long I decide to make 25.
Regardless of the chapter number, I am currently 134 manuscript pages and 63,000+ words into the novel, so I do have to conclude everything before reaching 70,000 words.
With the false starts, dead ends, restarts, and having to pause everything because of my mother's passing last October, I will be the first to admit this one has been really tough to write.
Yet the end IS in sight!
When FEMME FATALE is done, I will be going over my friendly neighborhood beta-proofreader's manuscript for what will be her next fantasy novel while she reviews Hugh.
So I better get back to writing.
Take care and I'll see you around the Internet.
