And so while I was busy (sort of) taking the weekend off and trying to keep burnout away1, the Pro Se submission window closed – and my pitch for a 12-episode serial was not yet ready. A twelve books series paid with 50% royalties, and it fizzed.
F*ck f*ck, f*ckety f*ck f*ck!
Three days of work wasted.
No, not, not at all, really.
Because I have here now a complete project for a 12-episodes series of novellas, planned to be published in monthly stand-alone installments.
Set in modern-day Europe.
Tackling ancient – and not so ancient – mysteries.
Featuring an exciting new character.
And an intriguing set-up.
A thing whose high concept is
The Ninth Gate meets The Transporter
But cooler. A lot cooler than that.
I wonder if it could be developed as a self-produced series…
Oh, well, back to work on other projects, in the meantime.
- and also, and here I should only kick myself for an idiot, tackling low-paid RE:CON reports for clients that treat me like dirt. ↩
