Writing Updates #19

So, how you been? It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I can’t believe my last writing update was in March of this year. There’s so much that has happened between then and now in both my writing life and my personal life.

Review: The Furthest Station by Ben Aaronovitch

31626329

The Furthest Station is a part of the PC Peter Grant series by Ben Aaronovitch, only it’s not a book or a graphic novel, it’s novella! I feared the novella format would be too short to properly enjoy, but that turned out to be a faulty assumption.

Plot:

Ghosts are not a rare occurrence on the London Underground, but these ghosts are different. They are aggressive and frightening. And it seems these ghost have an urgent message; only they can’t seem to deliver it. Luckily Peter Grant is on the case! He is joined by Nightingale, Jaget Kumar, Toby the ghost hunting dog and his teenage cousin, Abigail, who has been dabbling in magic herself.

r/Fantasy Bingo 2017 update

I’d heard of The Builders through the grapevine (r/Fantasy) and figured I’d try it. It’s nice and short, and gave me a nice taste of Daniel Polansky’s writing style, unless that changes per book, of course. You never know.

Plot:

The members of the Captain’s company split up years ago, scattered to the most remote corners of the Garden, keeping their heads down. But the Captain is not content to just lay down and die. He has a plan. A plan to get revenge for their last job. That last disastrous job.

Editing Update #8

I’ve finished editing both my novellas; I finished editing down my NaNoWriMo 2014 novel [SG] to a novella first, because I wanted to submit it to The Book Smugglers’ novella initiative. Which I did, though I’ve not heard back yet. But on their site they said to wait until August to hear, I believe, so if I haven’t heard anything by then, they’ve decided not to go with my story.
