Eight hundred thousand plus words. The Twelve Shepherds is huge. What started out as a serial novel has morphed into the largest project I’ve ever worked on. The story now encompasses six full-length novels, and writing it has elevated my respect for the authors out there that can write a door-stop sized tome with ease. The Kings and Clancy’s of the writing world are nothing more than freaks of nature to me now. I will surely think twice before again taking on such an endeavor.
