Progress Report

Hi Folks!

Things are going great. Just hit 100,000 words and the writing is going very well. I expect the novel to weigh in at 115,000 words, so I am almost there.

I have six chapters left to write. My pace slowed down since the last progress report, but the finish line is in sight and I think my word count will pick up for the final stretch.

Right now I am in the middle third of Nidon's story line. I am having a lot of fun writing the current chapter and can't wait to get write its finale. I like Nidon. When he finds a locked door in his path he usually just knocks it down, but so far that isn't working out well for him.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Hey Matt, I just picked up Eternal Knight last night and I have to tell you, I was so pleasently surprised by your writing. I cannot wait to get home to delve back into your book. I was especially impressed since I picked it up for free from amazon...and honestly, most free books are pretty awful. Yours however, is some high quality reading, as a huge fan of Patrick Rothfuss and George RR Martin, I think you have serious potential to be a best seller, I'm telling all my friends about you on Goodreads so they get in on your writing now. I cannot wait to finish your book and review it.
    I might even get back to writing on my blog, just so I can write about how happy it made me to read this novel. I also really appreciate your main character being female, as dumb as that may seem, us chicks don't get many characters we can meld with in fantasy, but Hadde has already won my heart and I'm only half done.
    Thank you and may the force be with you while you finish the sequel.

  2. Glad you are enjoying EK so far. Most readers say that the second half is even better. I hope you think the same!

    Back to writing. I can't wait to launch Child of the Knight into the world.

  3. I can hardly wait for you to launch it myself! Best of luck in your writing and editing.
