The second part of a novel, that pesky bit between the inciting incident and the crisis and resolution, is always the toughest for me (and probably for most writers). I'm 33k into the first draft of A Stranger Path (working title) -- the second in my Gods of Eoroe series of mythology-based weird/dark fantasy (this one from Maya mythology) -- and am battling inertia. I probably have about a 30k struggle ahead of me until it gets better again. Each new novel I keep thinking this part will get easier. Not yet, apparently.
On Amazon now from Digital Fantasy Fiction, in ebook, mass market paperback, or trade paperback. "Carlos Castaneda meets Thomas Covenant in a well crafted tale of fear, doubt, and redemption... Recommended." - Nathan Lowell, Author of the Tanyth Fairport series
