A 90,000-Word Manuscript, a Mailing List, and Lessons Learned

90,000 words later, and I find myself in this incredible state of positivity. Not only have I finished my first manuscript of the season, but I am also 23,000 words deep into a new fantasy novel manuscript.

Here are some updates for anyone subscribed to Curtis Writes Books and Paper Palaces!


  • I recently finished my novel manuscript for The Witch’s Uprising, and now it is off to my editor for revisions. The manuscript totals 90,000 words of fantasy prose.
  • In the meantime, I am working on a new fantasy novel idea called Threadbare. You can read all about it in the link below:
  • Finally, I have a new mailing list. This list is for anyone interested in knowing when my books are published, what manuscripts I am working on, and exactly where you can read these novels, novellas, and short stories.

Kindle, eReaders, or traditional paper publications – you will know where to read my books. You can sign up for the mailing list / newsletter here.
