Progress on ‘The Temptation’

Books don’t write themselves. You have to be there, writing them. This has been difficult for me, these past two weeks: doctor appointments, car inspection, really horrible weather, and so on.

Nevertheless, I plug away at it, trusting in the Lord to give me the story that He wants me to tell. Ten chapters of Book No. 11, The Temptation, are written. Fnaa, King Ryons’ double, has just gone down in history, although he doesn’t know it yet. Lord Orth is preparing for a long missionary trip into the Wallekki country. And if you haven’t read any of my Bell Mountain books so far, those last two sentences won’t make a lick of sense.

It has become necessary to re-visit Old Obann, the massive ruins across the river from the living city. It was the capital of Obann’s empire, destroyed by God’s wrath in the Day of Fire. It is not a nice place. I wouldn’t recommend messing about with it, but Lord Chutt, the usurper-in-chief, never listens to me. He has plans.

I won’t find out what happens next until I write it.

    “Lord Chutt, the usurper-in-chief”

    There seem to be a lot of people like this, these days.

    Oh, Lee, I’m so excited! Back to Old Obann! But what a twist. This should be an interesting journey with Lord Chutt – and I’m going to race ahead and imagine that if Ysbott the Snake is still around he’ll either overtly accompany him or will surreptitiously follow – not having learned his lesson with the mask. Yes, yes, yes! Old Obann, here we come! 🙂

    Hopefully ‘The Silver Trumpet’ will be in our hands soon too. Being a non-fiction sponge, your books are so very much anticipated. Thank you for writing them.

    Could these teasers be considered “cruel and unusual punishment”? 🙂 I’m still reading through the earlier books for the first time, and I’m already in suspense about books that haven’t even been written yet! No fair! No fair! (Just joshing.)
