A Pile of Paper


As of this morning I’m halfway through writing the first draft of ****** ****** Ephialtes Part II, in terms of chapters, at least.  As you can see, I’m being coy about the title.  Not for any well thought out reason, it just feels like I should be.  The above picture is what it currently looks like; a typo-filled incoherent mess.

Sorting the mess out is the fun part for me.  At the moment it’s a bit of a slog, so I’m glad to be heading down the other side of the mountain now.  I hope to have a completed first draft by the end of the year (secretly hoping well before the end of the year) with a release date some time in autumn 2017.

This book is about twice the length of Ephialtes, so I have my work cut out.

Right then, Chapter 26 . . .

  1. Get it finished! I just read Ephialtes do you need to get your butt in gear! Excellent job btw, and I left a five of five star review because yes, it’s that good! 🙂 🙂

  2. It’s incredibly gratifying to know that people are enjoying the book. Thanks for the enthusiasm and great review, they’re both really important to me. Regarding the second book: I’m going as fast as I can! I’m aiming at a release date around autumn next year, but before then (probably June 2017) I will be releasing The Ephialtes Shorts Collection, a compilation of five moderately long short pieces set in the Ephialtes universe. Shorts I & II are available now through all the usual outlets, with Short III coming on 25 October.

    Thanks again for your comment, the first genuine one I’ve had since setting this site up over a year ago. May it be the first of many!
