Storm is finished. Yowza. Came it at a clean 80k, well before my self-imposed September deadline, and I’m fucking proud of it. It feels real and fresh. We’ll see what the world thinks of it. I’ve started querying folks, the A-bomb still has to run over it with a fine-toothed comb for grammar and word/phrase repeats, but that’ll be done by the time anyone gets back to me anyway.
The query reads pretty well, I think, a good amount of ‘voice’ and a reasonable spiel on the central themes. Always hard to condense a book into a page, but hey, that’s why we make the big bucks (howls of derisive laughter, Bruce).
Still waiting on Fulls/Partials for COLD. I’ve discussed the idea of Storm with 2 of the 3 agents with Fulls and they dig it. One has asked to see Storm ASAP, the other is still only looking at COLD atm. So that’s all good. Still tired of waiting though, zzzzzz.
Watching the second season of Being Human atm – The acting is tip-top, but they seem at a complete loss with what to do with the ‘Annie’ character. Mitchell seems to get the most attention from the writers, whether that’s vampire chic or them tight jeans depends which fleece you switch, I guess. After BH is done, the A-bomb and I dive head first into five seasons of ‘The Wire’ – highly recommended by folks I trust. Expectations are haaaiiiiii.
And seriously, what da FUK is going on over at achewood?
