    Meh. It eats up a lot of time.

    Write. Edit. Publish. Repeat.

    How's the next book coming along? ;)

    15k into book three.
    Got distracted from editing by figuring out a huge plot thing in the Ritualist that I hope I'm right on.

    Give me two weeks, and I'll be hitting 4k a day when I'm done with my job for the summer. :)

    Second guessing myself on how book three is going. I guess I'm worried about the risk of switching to two new characters surrounded by the old cast. It's a hard balance...

    I'm right there with you. Switching characters can always be difficult, but as long as you've built the old cast in a good support manner, I'm sure you'll be absolutely fine.

    Updated the thread to have a short lore section since I'm sure others had this question.

    Oh, crap, you were serious about using Hack as your title. I thought you were just joking with me before.

    Hard when you strive to keep your titles simple. Sorry. :(

    Haha, it's okay. I was joking. There's room enough for all the hackers in the land. As long as I don't get dinged for it, I'll be okay. I could always go with Recode as a book two title if I have to.

    Man, you can't get dinged any harder than I am at the moment. Haha.

    Are you dropping down to one-word titles for all of them?

    Yep, the series is planned as thus for dubious reasons that may or may not be hidden in the titles:

    Book One: Login Accepted

    Book Two: Hacked

    Book Three: Fragment

    Book Four: Emergence

    Book Five: Subsistence

    Does everyone hate editing as much as I do? 3/4ths of the way done with pass 2! I cringe at some parts... I'm bad at murder and romance...

    You and I are different people sir. I love the writing, but rereading what I did sometimes hurts.

    This is on my reading list -- would you mind me asking why the MC is called Athos Aramis? The question has been bugging me (unless it's explained in the book) And is his middle name Porthos? :p

    If I'm remembering correctly, it's explained in the book. Not a spoiler though, to say it's just because someone was a Three Musketeers fan.

    And if I were you, I'd bump it up your reading list. I mean sure, I'm biased (because it's got my editing fingerprints on it), but it's a damn fine book and I think you'll like it quite a lot. My substantive passes consisted of basically "I FKING LOVE THIS and I feel bad because I literally only have two minor plot notes to give you for it," and my Minion™ had a tremendously hard time doing the line edits because she kept getting lost in the story and just reading it for pleasure before remembering she was supposed to be editing and having to backtrack to find where she switched modes.

    That's high praise coming from my Minion™, who is ... well, to say she's "not easily impressed" is a pretty severe understatement. She actually keeps bringing it up, wondering why I'm not pestering Gryphon to hurry up with book two already, heh.

    Ok. I'll read this after finishing Tower of Gates Book 3 and Ascend Online Book 1 (or I'll never finish it!) :)

    His middle name isn't mentioned until book two, but yes, his name middle name is Porthos, Athos P. Aramis. His mother is a huge nerd and when she got married, she was determined her first born son would be named that. His sister shares a similar fate, though not as obvious. As she puts it in book three, "Our mother is a huge nerd!"
