Summer Splash Blog Hop Winner:

01 Aug

Thanks to all those who took part in the Summer Splash Blog Hop, and congratulations to Debbie for coming closest on the “guess the number of jellybeans” style question. 🙂

Q: The final version the newly released book Devil Town, Volume IV of the Norothian Cycle has a word count of 109,472. The question is, what was the word count of the first draft?

A: 108,505

The book got just a little longer from first to final draft, which is odd as some scenes were cut and others added, and at least one was reworked entirely, but there you go.

Here are the final guesses, and where the actual answer falls on the scale. Again, thanks to everybody for playing, and Debbie, I will be in touch. 😉
