East of Constantinople, West of Shanghai

Last week before Halloween

Leave a comment

It’s the last week before Halloween, so let’s see…

I have to finish and deliver a 12/15.000-words supernatural thriller (think Kolchak, but set in the present day), by the end of the month.
The story is already outlined and I have a fair chunk of story, but now I’l have to start working on a map of Memphis1 (don’t ask).


The deadline is the 1st of November, but I will have to close my story earlier because…

… on the 31st of November, I will write a short horror story based on the idea my friend Claire suggested me (something to do with masks, remember?) and I will do it in one take – the idea is to post it here on Halloween night, so I’ll need to have it ready by Midnight, CET.


Then I’ll write another horror short between the 1st and the 2nd of November, and send it to all my mailing list subscribers2.

Meanwhile we’ll have to talk about other stuff, including like my Patreon page – yes, I am about to start one – and my next writing project, and all the rest. And the reasons why I will not do the NoNoWriMo.

It’s gonna be a fun week.

  1. which sort of fits the Egyptian mood of the last few days, what? 
  2. as previously explained, a double-feature ebook edition will be published by Christmas, if not sooner. Because I want your money.
