Apologies for my slacking. Updates have been few and far between lately in regards to my own projects. Fear not to the two people who read these updates, I am busy.
The last copy edits to the next installment in the Our Monsters Chronicles, “Bad Monsters”, remain in process. After that I’ll be indulging in the fun part… formatting. I loath formatting but to get the story to my two fans the novel needs to look polished and pretty. The cover and blurb are forthcoming so be on the look out. I’ve wanted to release both closer to the novel’s launch so when the cover appears rest assured the novel is following close behind down the road.
Next update… while I am not involved in the copy edits for “Bad Monsters”, like I said before, I’ve still been busy. These last months have had me writing up a new project, something separate from anything Our Monsters. It’s a future fantasy with a cool magic system I’m really proud of. You’ve heard of steampunk? Of course. Well, this new book is junkpunk. Imagine a world where all that humanity has built lay asleep, gathering dust, broken, the great titans created by man are rusting hulks of a dead past. There are some in this world, special people, who can bring this old junk to life with a flick of the wrist, Waking the old machines to do their bidding. It is an ability of wonder but one many fear for its connection to the old world. This novel is still in the first draft stage, the word count is up to about 83,000 words last time I looked. The end is near and I am happy the way things are shaping.
Lots of cool stuff on the horizon. Keep watch and I’ll try to update more often with more than just reviews. Until then… goodnight and cheers!
