Another novel in the bag.

I finished the rough draft of the Warmachine novel I was writing for Privateer Press today. It is awesome.  75,000 written words in less than 2 months, and during that I had the flu, a funeral, 20 people staying at my house for a week, did the Swords of Exodus final edits, and drove a 10 day road trip. BOOM! Still wrote a novel. Nanowrimo? I call that Tuesday. But that’s another book done, that calls for HEAVY METAL BAGPIPES OF TRIUMPH!

Yes. This is the song I play whenever I finish a project.

And by the way, this book is actually a whole lot of fun. For those of you not familiar with Warmachine, it won’t matter, because I wrote this in such a way that you’ll be able to jump right in. Plus I’m writing about the faction that is the least “weird”. So overall it is a just a really cool war story, Band of Brothers meets the Dirty Dozen, only with swords that shoot lightning. 🙂

  1. That’s an awesome tune!

  2. That is one of the greatest quotes I’ve ever seen:

    “Nanowrimo? I call that Tuesday.”

  3. Also in the kickass news today my MONSTER HUNTER LEGION paperback arrived today from Amazon! Kickass!

  4. Will this see publication through Pyr then? If so, I’ve toyed with picking up Ari Marmell’s novel, but if this is the same universe you’re writing in as Marmell, then I’m definitely picking it up!

  5. What’s the title of the new novel, so I can pre-order it? And what is the projected release date?

  6. Sounds good to me. I’ve been watching Band of Brothers for the last week. Band of Brothers with monsters and magic sounds badass.

  7. It’s about the good guys in Warmachine, Khador, right?

  8. Wow. You are a machine.

  9. that sounds like fun.

  10. Thanks Larry. Got another band to add to my ever-growing collection. Besides, I like reading about new things. Especially when it has the word “War” somewhere in it. Warmachine? Never played it, but I have played Warhammer 40k, Warhammer Fantasy and Necromunda. Also dabbled a bit in various other tabletop miniature gaming over the years. Now I just got to wait till you edit that book and send it in. Then wait for the publisher to put it up on the net to buy. ‘Twiddles thumbs…patiently.’

  11. 75,000 words in under 2 months. You sir, are my hero.

  12. I can’t wait….now if only I could find a way to convince Darla, Destroyer of Words and Aeryn ( cant spell his name!), to make me an official SIX pre-reader…..

  13. What faction/warcaster/warlock are you writing on this time?
    I still need to read dead six. ><

  14. I like that bad. I’ve always liked bagpipes and hard rock.

  15. Viking Metal up the irons. Great taste in music. What other bands do you like?
