Well, as of today, it looks like one of my proposals for a novel has been green-lighted for its next phase by a UK publisher. Now the real hard work starts: full chapter break-downs, sample chapters, etc. So I'm gonna be up to my, uh, balls in work for the next few weeks.
This is a very good sign; the odds of this actually coming out as a book/novel have now jumped from over 500/1 to possibly less than 10/1...obviously it could still get binned if they don't like my prose style, etc, but fingers crossed...it's a strong concept/story, just have to knuckle down and bulldoze thru it.
Can't go into any details right now, for commercial reasons, but you'll be the first to know if/when it all starts coming together. For now, I'm going to have to be a bit vague and describe it as a high-octane wide-screen Action/Horror romp.
I think it would be an understatement if I said I was f-f-f-fucking excited!
Right, off to do some work, then watch the Hawkwind documentary on BBC4 at 9:00.
