In other news, my month-long post-edit hiatus is now over, and I’m back to working on book two. I’m about 80k into it, but only the Flying Spaghetti Monster knows how many of those are actually good, so we’ll see how we go once the dust settles. It’s most definitely shaping up into a “it’s always darkest before the dawn” style tale, but therein lies the trauma with all second acts. I admit that I quite enjoy torturing these tiny little people I’ve created. Plus, I actually thought of a title I’m super-chuffed with, which in my mind is 90% of the battle won.
I’ve made it over the Eccleston hump and I’m into the Tennant episodes of Doctor Who. Mickey just joined the crew, and I’m praying he gets face-huggered very quickly, or the Doctor cracks the shits with his constant “What’s goin’ on ‘ere den?” routine and flushes him out an airlock.
No further news on STORMDANCER. Edits are still with the Powers That Be. No doubt as soon as I get into the groove on Book 2, I’ll get more edits on Book 1, so rather than lolly-gagging about here on the blog all day, I’d best get back to it.
Oh btw, in case you missed it, I’ve got an author page on Facebook here. And if anyone can reveal to me the secret of changing my Author Page URL (rather than the Personal Page that admins the Author Page) I personally guarantee you a signed copy of STORMDANCER once it comes out. Or some skull-stonkingly good booze. Whichever you prefer.
