But I was technically late.
When I picked up the extra story prompt in May they gave me a generous two months to write the story. July 13th was the due date and I thought it would be a piece of cake! Wow. I really jinxed myself because not long after, everything came in at once and I had to put the story on hold.
At the beginning of July I realized I needed more time, but I wasn't sure if I would get it because it was so late in the game. The Mods worked with me and they gave me a couple of extra weeks. Right before I went to Rainbow Con I made a decision. At 43k the story was only half finished, so what I did was make sure our MCs were together, gave a hint of what was still to come, and turned in Darksoul: Part One. I hated doing that but I overextended myself. If I only had this story to work on in that sixty day period it would've been easy to finish the 100k, but it didn't work out that way.
The plan is that once I finish with the edits for Dragon's Eye, Sumeria's Sons #5, I'll return to and work on the second half of Darksoul. I'll probably self publish the complete novel in the fall/winter. It's going to be awesome. ^_^
