AND SOMEWHERE IN THERE, I'VE MADE SOME WRITING PROGRESS

Because, you know, that's what it's supposed to be about, this writing career of mine. Actually, you know, uh, writing. There's a bunch of goals I intend to hit this year, career-wise, and so far I'm toodling along quite nicely: the final edits of Marching Dead have been delivered to Editor Lee at Angry Robot; I've finalised the synopsis for Corpse-Rat King: Fall to Heaven and shot that off to SuperAgent Rich to cast his expert eye over before we send it on to AR to see if they're interested; and I'm currently nose-deep in rewriting Napoleone's Land into a straighter fantasy novel (tentatively titled Counterweight Colony at this point, although that will change)and plotting it out for the synopsis. And all the while, the first draft of Father Muetre &The Divine sits in the corner, composting nicely to the point where I can go back and edit it and write the synopsis ready to hit SARich with it as well.


 Just in case you thought it was all Lego sorting and masturbating......

Can't wait for the Marching Dead!!! The synopsis for "fall to heaven" and another fantasy novel really has me excited! I want to ask more about Napoleone's Land, but I suppose I'll be patient and let you do your thing... Keep it up!

'Napoleone's Land' is a slightly older project that needed me to be a touch more skilful and clever than I was to pull it off properly. Hopefully I've got the chops to do it some justice- at the very least, I've realised what sort of genre it *should* have been all along...

But it's nice to have a few projects lined up. If they all fall as they should I could have five novels out within the next couple of years. Which is nice :)
