Spells of the Curtain Book 6, Fire Mage is going to be long, and likely going to become a novel, rather than a novella.
There. Thought I’d get the big shift in news out of the way first. The book just doesn’t want to be contained into 100 pages, and it may be even longer than book one in the end.
I struggled with this fact for a while, but I think it’s for the best. As a result, it will take a little more time to release, but I should definitely have it out this month, alongside another book in a new science fiction series, and a short story or two for my military space opera series, Titan Games.
Happy NaNoWriMo to all fellow writers. This seven-minute blog is dedicated to you, whether you’re new to the craft or old hands at it.
Thanks for reading.
I have some time left, so allow me to be clear about something else.
I have had some serious depressive phases recently, mostly relating to the book and my failure to get really deep into it as a novella. I’m getting better with some help from my friends, but it’s always tough to handle these flare-ups. If you suffer from depression, get help. Your mind is 90% of what you’ve got in most cases.
Thanks for reading, and hopefully I’ll be back soon with good news and new books.
This blog has been a seven-minute sprint. Check the links for my podcast if you want to hear more, and as always check out my books if you want to support me or just read some good speculative fiction.
