Brian is buried at last

Post by steven pirie on Fri Nov 06, 2009 5:57 pm

Well, it's taken me five years to write, but my second novel, Burying Brian, is now done. It's thoroughly edited, with just a few minor retouches still required before it's ready to go. It weighs in finally at a little under 90, 000 words.

I've spoken to Storm Constantine, and she tells me Immanion Press are still keen to look at it. So, I'll send it on to them probably Sunday, and then it's fingers crossed while I wait.

I'm thinking I might do something 'grittier' for a next project. Humour is so hard to write properly, and I reckon I can produce a gritty story in a fraction of the time it's taken me with Brian (and with Digging up Donald before it). I've had more success in placing such stories in big markets recently, so perhaps the same will be true for such a novel length project. We'll see.

Before then I want to craft some more short stories. I love writing shorts; I find doing so very satisfying.

Anyway, thanks for letting me share...

Awesome news, Sir.

Humour is definitely hard to write, especially sarcastic humour...

Thanks, folks. The file is crawling down the Interwebly wires to the publisher even as I type.

I like the feeling of finishing big works like this. I'd get drunk, but I'm on twenty-four-hour call for the day job.

Now I wait.
