Where was I? What’s going on?
Just settling into my new job at Etteplan. Pretty much like my early days at Lionbridge (or BGS as it was then), I have a trial period that hopefully I’ll get through without difficulty. This one is six months instead of two (I seem to recall the probations were shorter back then), but oh well.
Seems a nice place.
Panda Egg is in editing, and Gabriel is working on the cover which will be a continuation of the anthology covers for Deadshepherd and The First Feast. I’m quite excited, this story collection came out of nowhere (and started as a bit of a joke, like all my best stories) and I rather enjoyed the results. I hope my readers do too.
I’ve sent a feeler-message to an international publishing agent here in Finland, so now I just need to wait and see if they like feelers and whether they feel my modest portfolio is something they want a piece of. Fingers crossed. I’d rather get 3% of 2000 books a month than 70% of 5 books a month. Actual mathematical figures may not be accurate.
That’s about it for now. Just sitting on the metro headed for the Helsinki Baltic Herring Market, to stock up on pickled herring for the winter. Mmmmmmm.
