So, it probably looks like the writing has stopped. It hasn't. It has slowed down a bit, but that's for a couple of reasons. One, I've been going back and doing a first edit of what I have. I'm also taking a little time off to relax. Since I am no longer doing the local convention, there's no reason for me to write this book as fast as possible. At most, this slower pace will add a month to the writing, but also gives me the free time to work out my thoughts on the next book(s).
I'm currently completely immersed in the exploits of the Death Squad. I'm glad that I decided to this book before #5 simply because it's giving me a chance to really explore this team of characters and how they operate. It's also been fun seeing how this team of steampunk biker dwarves would be seen by modern day humans, who have absolutely no idea that these dwarves are a seperate race, rather than another human.
I didn't want this piece to come off as "alternate history" but more like unknown/forgotten history. Something that could have happened, but no one was really aware of it. I'm hoping that if I do any more of these side stories that they will come off in the same way. I believe Hitori did and I think this will too....hopefully. :P
