Sunstone is up to 63,000 words. That's another 12K in the past week. It's looking like this one will be 90 to 100K.

Yay, I worked on one novel this past week.


My Angel Kin book. It's still-maybe-at the halfway point. My MC has joined the bad guys--without knowing they are--with digging for a special artifact. And the process of trying to seduce her into being one of them is about to start.
