Well, so far, I have something like 77 A4 pages out of the current 330 almost completely dealt with. Still loads to re-arrange.

In the meantime?

More than 150 A4 pages of continuous pages are novelised, and I'm still busy considering the offer made by a literary agency? Big things at stake ;)

You won't believe it, but I've actually got one book done?

?

"Arpia, Flight of Dawn"

But there's a catch Grin

Due to the enormous size of what was going to be "the Arpia novel", I decided to cut it in two parts. This means that "Arpia, Flight of Dawn" is over 80.000 words, and contains the first half of the Arpia story. "Arpia, Fight of Eve" is what I'm working on slowly now (when not trying to make the opening chapters of "Flight of Dawn" better), and I could say I still have roughly two thirds of that to novelise. Indeed, the size of the full story is going to be 300 A4 pages of continuous text, and I've got 200 pages fully novelised, out of which 140 for Flight of Dawn. You do the counting Wink

Okay, I've reworked the beginning of the first chapter too, so I've posted the new version of prologue + beginning of chapter one for all to read.

Okay, revision has gone slightly slowly due to exams, but here are the prologue and the first four chapters.

See the Arpia page.
