1st Draft for 'Secret Apocalypse' part 2 is COMPLETE

And it feels so good.

I can't wait to finalise it.

Here's a sneak peek...

I think the thing that freaked people out the most is that the virus robbed a person of their humanity - it took away their soul.  No one wants to believe that death is absolute, that there is no after life. People want to believe that their souls live on forever in heaven or wherever. But the Oz virus confronted people with their mortality, with death. Not just death of the body, but death of the soul, the spirit. Complete and absolute. And that scared the hell out of people. Scared the hell out of me.

How 'bout this weather...

So it's 40 freakin degrees again here in my part of Australia.

And in Queensland last night a category 5 cyclone smashed into the coast. That's right, category 5. They don't make 'em any bigger. It was something like 500km's in diameter. It was an absolute monster. Queensland is having a rough start to the year.

But yeah, its been about 40 degrees for the past week or so. All this hot weather and beach time is making it difficult for me to concentrate on writing. But i think I'm almost sort of half way to being half way done on the sequel to 'the secret apocalypse'. Does that even make sense?

I can't wait to finish it. It's a blast to write... there's so much action and tension.

I also can't wait to re-release Dead Forest under it's new name. I'm thinking of combing the second volume with the first to make it novel length as I'm sort of not too sure about novellas. But that's the awesome thing with self-pubbing ebooks - you have complete control. These decisions are up to me. It's fantastic.
And i still get a huge rush whenever i sell a book. It's the greatest feeling in the world, the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.

And now i'm off to the beach. I mean, i'm off to write a few thousand words.
