No, I'm not dead. Just busy.

In the last six weeks I've written just over 80,000 words. I intend to keep going at this rate until mid-December. By that time I will have finished Stalin's Hammer: Paris, A Girl in Time, and the new, full-length AOT novel which kicks off the world War 3.1 series. (Oh, and the Dave Hooper fanfic project).

Pepsi Challenge: World War 3.1

Thanks to everyone who"s been noodling around the beta of Paris. It"s shaping up nicely. I"ll leave it in there for another week or so and then flick it to Deonie for the blow torch treatment.

I had an email from Dirk de Jager when he"d finished his first read thru; a suggestion that a map would nice. Which it would. I"ll see what I can do about that. If anyone knows of any copyright free map generating magic sites on the interwebs, please let me know.

First Draft done

Just put the last full stop in place and compiled the Scrivener file of Paris. 48 250 words. I'll give the Word doc a read thru this arvo and tomorrow, and send it out to Beta.

Publication in late September, I reckon, depending on the pro-edit.

Paris progress

Just passed 40K of a planned 45K final word count. Unless I am suddenly siezed of a madness that demands I add a couple of last minute chapters, I should have this bad boy ready for beta in a couple of days. I'll probably send it out at the end of the week. I'll need a day or so to go through the compiled manuscript and do a light edit.

Star Trek Beyond

I did manage to catch this one for my birthday. Took the fam. We all liked it. I'd post a review but, you know, writing books.

I'm not sure why it hasn't done as well as the others. I though it was better than the Wrath of Khan remake.

Now, back to writing books.
