I finished Black Sheep!!! And here is where I go next!

On 22 Feb 2012 I posted that I started the last part of Black Sheep, about a week ago I finished it, the 20th of May. Which means that this last instalment has taken me about 3 months to write. Which is a huge step up from the other parts. Part One has taken me about 3 years to write, Part two about a year and this around three months. Which for me is crazy fast.

I had been planning on writing about this earlier on but live got in the way, but now I’m able to free some of my time up again.

Right now I’m in the process of both editing and trying to come up with a title/cover for my short story collection. I’m out of any ideas but I think it’ll work some way. I should probably first edit the stories some more before I start working on the title. Like I said, life has gotten in the way and I haven’t found a lot of time for my writing.

So the important question is: What will happen to Black Sheep now?

First, I will still keep updating a chapter every two weeks (this Wednesday is the next time), this will (according to my calculations) run till the end of November. In this time I will mainly work on getting Disturbed Fate ready for publication.

I might be able to get some edits done in that time for Black Sheep but I don’t expect it to be a lot. This autumn I’ll be going into my last year of university so it’s going to be busy enough anyway.

I am going to release Black Sheep with edits in an ebook form, but don’t expect this to be before 2013. It does need quite a lot of edits and I’ll probably also add a few short stories to the ebook versions to spice things up.

So, yes, the updates will keep coming, no don’t expect an ebook release of it this year, yes expect them for 2013.

In the mean time I’m planning on being interviewed by Nephylim and will probably do a few posts about different parts of Black Sheep in the future.

But first of all, next week CampNaNoWriMo will start which will have me largely focussed on Disturbed Fate and also the release of my still nameless short short story collection of fantasy stories which will come out at the start of July.

I’ll leave you with the last line of the story:

The airplane is leaving in about an hour, we need to hurry, we have a wedding to attend.

 

Keep reading!

I bet you want a release date, right? ;)

So, yes, I’m back! Sort of… More on that later 😉

I finished my second year of university almost 2 weeks ago, which both seems really far away and really close at the same time. The only thing left is waiting on my results now.

For the past 2 weeks I’ve been doing all sorts of things, mostly having quite a few social responsibilities and fixing up things to live at my parents place or my boyfriends place over summer. I haven’t really gotten that much writing done yet. I’ve yet again found that writing 12K worth of words in less than a week is very VERY stressful and I’ve yet to fully recover from it. Plus that writing essays and fiction are two totally different things and require a different mindset. Sometimes I do wish that it was the same though, writing my story as an essay, though it would probably end up only be 5 pages instead of 500… Especially the way I write. 😉

Soooooooo, I’ve been saying that I’ll have a special thing for this summer and I think it’s time I’ll tell you what it is.

Around the first of July I will release a short story collection with magical realism stories.
