You just hit Level 3!
I just finished the first draft of The Apocalypse Ark, the third book in the Cross series. Like most of my first drafts, it’s pretty rough — there are a few scenes still missing, other scenes are more or less placeholders until I write something better, some characters will change in the next draft, and so on. But now I have something to work with. And I can prove to all my loved ones that I wasn’t just playing video games in my office all day!
(Bonus feature: I came up with some great ideas for the next Cross books, based on what happens in The Apocalypse Ark. Gotta love when that happens!)
