The first draft of Venus, book one of the Terrestrial Planets trilogy, is finished. It stands at 55,409 words.
Now I just have to go back and make it not suck. Once I've revised it, I'll send it off for beta reading. I hope to do that before the end of the month.
It took me exactly five weeks to write it. That's over 11,000 words per week. I'm pretty thrilled with that average. Hopefully, books two and three will go as swiftly. My tentative goal is to publish the trilogy no later than January. I'm going to publish all three books at almost the same time. I don't know if that will have any marketing effect or not, but it will be a neat experiment.
