I am making real progress with my story, Blood of a Leo. I am nearly done with the storyline and I am now working on the epilogue. When that is done I suspect I’ll have a wordcount of around 30k, after that I will go through the story again and lengthening it to somewhere between 35k-41k words, which may take some time, but hopefully not too much time.
As for When Blood Beckons, the release is closing in, but a definite date has not yet been set. All I know for now is that it will be out in October and will most likely be released on a Thursday.
