The first two books I wrote, Duty, Honor, Planet and Birthright, took years to finish. The next two, Honor Bound and The Line of Duty each took over a year. The two after that, Northwest Passage and Enemy of My Enemy took just under a year each. My most successful book yet, Glory Boy, took me three months. The last book I published, Recon: A War to the Knife took two months. Today, I finished the sequel to that one and it took only a month. Maybe I’m starting to get the hang of this writing thing, in my old age.
