An update has been asked for and now here it is:
But first a confession:
I know this may seem strange but I write on my iPhone. I know, I know, it's crazy but when I first started writing Thief of the Rose I was on the road a lot and started writing the story in my mind. I downloaded a free writing app and started putting my thoughts down on my iPhone. Well I liked the program well enough that I bought the paid version and penned TotR on it. Ever since I have continued to use the app. When IOS 7 came out the app's update was very buggy and I was unable to write. Well, after several updates the app was still buggy and so I had to look for another solution. I found another writing program that I like and now I'm back to writing. I know I should have shifted to a better writing instrument but like I said I tend to act the scenes out in my head and then when I have them worked out then I write them down. There is sufficient down time at my various job sites so I am able to put my thoughts down.
So, long story short I am behind and trying to catch up. I'm still writing and tying the various plot lines together and am down to three plot lines now.
I have no idea when I will be done but after writing 59,958 words I have no intention of stopping. My new writing program tracks that for me. :)
Enjoy Thanksgiving and I will have an update for Christmas.
