Working again...

You know, the day job thingy. Not that fun writing stuff that's so easy I can whip up in a book in my spare time in a few weeks...
I actually thought the second phase of the birding tourism project was never going to take off, but it has, so I have just spent two days back in the rat-race (read: Kuala Lumpur traffic jams) attending meetings and thinking of everything except writing the next book.

Having a centre core around my heart that is all written words and plot-lines, naturally I want to get started on the next one. I've written a couple of hundred words of what will possibly be a duology called "The Hidden Kingdom". But alas, it will have to wait...

If I get a reading slot at Worldcon, I probably could be bribed into doing a reading of what I have written so far of this new book. It is set in the Havenstar world of a disintegrating land, peopled by citizens desperately trying to find a way to hold their world together. This time it's a different country with a different solution for keeping the Unmaker at bay, and a different set of characters.

How very tantalising Glenda.

Couldn't you dictate whilst driving and then copy what you've said later on?

Does this mean that Havenstar will be released with your current publisher? I'm lucky that I already have a copy but I have a friend who whines whenever she sees it on my shelf! I very much enjoyed that world and would love another book set there!

Hi JM - I haven't sold another work yet. In fact, haven't tried as yet, what with the third book not out ...

My agent, though, has been begging me for first chapters and a synopsis, but I haven't supplied them yet.

I very much want Havenstar to be re-issued as well.

Jo - I do a lot of my thinking in the car, I will admit...

Imagine me said...

Ooh that sounds tantalising. Hurry up and get this part of the day job finished.

"the day job thingy"
- tell me about it! But, on the other hand you are streaks ahead of me in terms of out put...

"I've written a couple of hundred words of what will possibly be a duology called "The Hidden Kingdom".
- Yay!

"But alas, it will have to wait..."
- Boo!
