BIOHELL complete.

The first draft of BIOHELL (that I'm happy with) is now complete (after many delays!!), and headed for agent and editor alike. It's come in at 167,000 words (oops) which is bit over-budget, and that's with me cutting about 10,000 of excess fat from the meat! Now for the next stage of the process, where Christian at Solaris take his big red pen, makes a lot of big red lines, and shouts REMIC, NO!!!

Also got the A-Format pdf for WAR MACHINE from Mark at Solaris, and the mass-market paperback out in November to coincide with the trade of BIOHELL will be a nicely chunky 656 pages, so a good fat chunk of Remic in your fist for £6.99 (or thereabouts). Bargain! Cheap as chips, I say.

One small step for man... one giant leap...

Just a few more months of twiddling me thumbs with nowt ta do but wait...

Pass on some kind words of incouragement to Mr Red Pen to help speed things up a little :D

Unfortunately, publication date is set for November 2008, irrelevant of how slowly/ quickly editing is completed. Sorreeee.

Oh well good things come to those who wait, I will have to find other ways to pass the time until Nov...

One idea is to print of a copy of the BIOHELL art work, stick it to the cover of WAR MACHINE and read it again...

...Another is to while away the months in a drunken stuper fighting tramps for food :D
