57,841 words total. I like the story. I love the ending.
And now the novel gets to sit quietly for a while as I plot the replacement Ohio 4.
In revision, it will probably get a bit longer. Most of my stuff does.
Based on some very good advice, I am, however, now considering doing a slower release, and NOT having all five initial books finished before I begin releasing them.
I think I might have a better time of this if I didn’t try anything rapid-release-ish, but instead simply had a nice little reserve in place, and then released them one every six or so months — about the speed at which I can reasonably write one, and revise it, and be happy with the quality of what I’m creating.
