The Lucy story is going remarkably well. Today, after work, I typed 1360 words. The writing was done yesterday in pencil. Total today and yesterday 1640 and this represents Chapter 3. The total so far is 4280 words. So it's probably going to be 12 - 15 k in extent. Most importantly it is a good murder mystery. Watch this space.
I was going to do more commentary on the characters of The Scorpian Visitant, but time does not permit today.
However, I have news soon of an interesting offer concerningThe Scorpian Visitant. I will announce it tomorrow or Friday and it will last over the weekend.
