Hello, everyone! I hope your July is treating you well in your corner of the world. Currently my July is beautifully warm and I’ve been spending lots of time sitting in the sunshine coming through the window, catching sneaky peaks at the Tour de France, while running around on important family errands and squeezing in rewrites of Sisters of Icarus where I can.
I’ve just hit 50% on that, which leaves me nicely on target to get through it by the end of the month. Hopefully it’ll go quicker now that I’ve rewritten a particularly troublesome chapter. There are a few more ahead, though, so I’m not feeling too confident just yet. Still, it’ll be nice to write something from scratch next month.
Speaking of new things, I’m toying with the idea of releasing a collection of short stories to accompany the Dark Rebellion duology. I’ve got ideas for at least three – all connected with the books – but I’d like to include a few more, perhaps about Caligo’s childhood before his troubles began. If there’s anything you’d like to know more about in the books (or that happens outside of the books), I’m definitely open to ideas. Request for more Noctis will always be considered, especially since we recently lost Hector, the chief inspiration for his doggy days.
And finally in other Dark Rebellion news, The Rebel Returns is still on offer at $.99/£.99, but only until next Friday, July 17th. Get it cheap while you can!
