Writing milestone reached

I finished the latest draft of the newly retitled Death of Hope and shared it with my first reader. I haven't heard back from her, but I don't expect to for at least a few days. It takes time to really read a 10k story.

I am pleased with the results. The new version has many less typos and I didn't change the name of a character at the midway point. I also like the pacing. It will be an excellent prologue for The Undead War when I rewrite it. It also puts me in the position of needing to rewrite Night's Wraith.

I think that the next longer piece I work on will be Return of the Solar Ranger. It is a pulp story that I've been messing around with since NaNoWriMo. Since it will most likely be 200 pages or so, I'll combine it with For Better and Worse and Death of Hope in a novel sized collection.

I ran The Ghosts of Chancellorsville as a promotion on Amazon last week. It did not perform well, but it has been run several times in the past. This weekend it is Return from Paradise's turn. It has never had more than a handful of takers on the promotion before and it's doing better today. I hope the plug for Lucky Streak in the back of each grabs a few additional readers.
