I just finished the third to the last chapter of my new juvenile paranormal book, The Treasure of Hawthorne House, when I discovered that the last line in the chapter cried out to be the last line in the book. I have therefore decided to end the first book there and make the last two chapters that I have blocked out the first two chapters in the sequel.
Woo Hoo! I only have about 10-20 pages left to write and the first draft of the book will be finished!!!! The book will be my longest yet: a tad over 400 pages set for 5×8 paperback trim size (97,000 words).
