As One Door Closes, Another Opens…

Alright- we’ve got a final wordcount for this version of the book.

150,867 words.

Which means that over the last six months or so, I’ve sliced 37,000 words out of THE HYPERNOVA GAMBIT. After a few days of complete paranoia and being convinced that I’d written complete bilge, I finally persuaded myself that some of what I’d written was actually bearable, and I’ve just sent it to a couple of people to be read. Hopefully that’s not going to backfire on me. Plus… I think I’ve actually worked out what I’m doing for my next book. It’s an idea I’ve been working on for a very long time, but I think if I do it right, I can pull it off. There’s definitely a novel there, it’s just going to be a matter of digging around a bit and finding it.

Plus, with my wife’s help, I’m making my first voyages into the online realm of World of Warcraft. I’m currently playing a blue alien girl called Valsaizer, and this evening spent half an hour killing a wide variety of mutant plant life. No change there, then…

I also may have succeeded in introducing one of my nephews to the joys of 2000ADs. I’ve got a gigantic pile of them (mainly second hand), nowhere to store them, and the chance to hand them on to someone who’ll enjoy them is actually quite nice (even if he trashes them- to be honest, they’re second hand…). They’re fantastic stories, and it’s great to get the chance to expand someone’s horizons…
