So, it’s looking like Heavy Ice might turn out to be another duology. I’m sorry, people – it seems like my natural writing length is the ‘too big to fit into one book, not big enough to be a trilogy’. It’s not the usual ‘sod off, characters / plotlines who wish to show up late in the day and steal the book’ that every writer has to deal with, it’s that the whole thing is just turning out too big. It’s a good thing I don’t knit, or I’d be regularly starting out on cat sweaters and ending up with house-cosies.
Also trying to come down the pipe are the Nameless Side Project and various ideas for the book where Kallisty actually has a romantic plotline and the book where Kjarten grows up, none of which help, brain.
