Goooooooooood afternoon my lovely little pixies!
Currently trapped in my bedroom as there’s an obscene amount of pollen flying about in the air today. So I’m stuck indoors, behind closed doors, locked windows, sat beside a steadily-heating-up air purifier from 1999. So far I’m thriving on six cups of coffee and one sausage roll. I’m Northern, I can do this.
Few things to update on:
Just sent the blurb, acknowledgements, and dedication off to Inspired Quill. I was gracious enough to thank the people that matter, and curse the people who were mean. And the blurb… Oh, the blurb. YOU EVIL LITTLE THING. I’ve spent almost every waking minute thinking about it. I’ve shown it to a few friends to get some feedback. After wrestling with it for two weeks, I think it’s good enough to get a good proper editing now.
Speaking of Inspired Quill, guess who’s got a smexy shiny new website?
Go on, click the image. It’ll take you flying through space and time to the beautiful new site 😀 Click it, go on. Go on. I spent longer than I should’ve done trying to figure out how to link it up, go on.
In other news, in August I’m heading down to London. What’s that? To a convention, you ask? No, silly. I’m going to the Warner Bros. Studios with my best friend, for the Harry Potter tour. Just bought myself a Slytherin t-shirt for the day, too. Yes, I’m a Slytherin. No, I’m not a Death Eater. WE ARE NOT ALL EVIL.
So, between now and August, when I’m getting the edits back from IQ to do the final once over before it goes to the proofreader, I’ll be working on… (drum roll, please)…
THE SEQUEL TO THE OLD WAYS!
Since The Old Ways ends so ambiguously (you’ll see), I thought it only fitting that certain characters get some closure. However, closure is definitely not what they’re going to get. They’re going to get severely tortured. I won’t lie, it’s gonna hurt, guys. Check out the tagline:
Fragile alliances will be forged in flames.
Ancient evils will be resurrected to seek vengeance.
Powerful foes will rise to sow discord.
The Age of Magic has come.
Catchy, huh? 🙂 Oh, that’s also the current working title, The Age of Magic. Old favourites come back to play, new faces make an appearance, Albion gets shaken to the core. To be crude, shit hits the fan.
Best get writing!
Blessed be, my darling pixies.
