East of Constantinople, West of Shanghai

Nailed it!


I am happy to announce that I suddenly nailed a perfect idea for the mainstream/realistic/whatever novel I’ve been asked to write for a major editor, and that will be the subject of my NaNoSortaWriMo.
The idea is solid and fun, and while certainly appealing to a mainstream audience, it will still be my sort of story. Just a little less action and a little more structure.
But it opens with a scene involving a mechanical velociraptor.
Because you know me.


Anyway, I’m quite happy with the first 1000-odd words, and I am going reasonably strong.
This is going to be quite an adventure.
