Well, ’tis 8°C here in Tokyo this morning @ 4:30 a.m …and I’m feeling it. Brrrr!
But I’m merely pottering — because two days ago I completed novel #4, which is now a wrap. Can’t believe it’s done and is with the publishers for consideration.
DEPTH CHARGING ICE PLANET GOTH.
The new one clocks in at 87,604 words, and the gist? Basically, female protagonist, set in 1986. Goth/post-punk references, a mystery/crime/comicbooks/coming-of-age yarn and… a little horror.
Based in Melbourne again. And not.
Anyway, will stop waffling. As I mentioned, I can’t believe I finished but I have to see if the publishers actually dig it enough to release. Still organizing cover artwork (I have a brilliant image in mind, and negotiating with the artist). Fingers crossed all round.
Otherwise, we’ve scored a couple more reviews for Who is Killing the Great Capes of Heropa? — there’s this absolutely brilliant (and hilarious) one thanks to Kriss Morton @ Cabin Goddess and a sweet critique from Naimeless. Thanks, mates!
In case you missed the bugger, Heropa is still 99¢ for the Kindle version @ Amazon USA.
And I just got word that Matt Kyme has started on the artwork for #2 of our comic book Tales to Admonish.
More news soon. Now to catch up on some R&R! 😉
