The manuscript is finished.
After five years the manuscript has finally been completed.
And truth be told, I’m happy to see the back of it. This story has been festering in my mind for so long that I’ve been unable to think of anything else. I had to stop writing it because it became unwieldy. I then went and wrote something else, a novella that expanded into a novel length story. And always at the back of my mind was the beast that was Frostfeld :The end of the world as you know it. The bloody thing hung around my neck like an albatross, and why?
Because…….I don’t know why. I was just unable to finish it. Maybe the vision I had for it was too ambitious. Or maybe I wanted to wait until I felt I was better. Either way, I came to realise that no matter how hard I tried, no matter how hard I wrote, it would only ever be as good as it would be now. I could only ever write the best can at this moment in time. Attempting to leap forward was an impossibly.
So, I resolved to finish it. And now it is.
Now it’s done. Soon I’ll be unleashing it onto an unsuspecting public.
Like on Monday morning. With a wonderfully elegant cover by spreston
And for those who have alternate e book readers, Frostfeld: The End Of The World As You Know It - Awakening will very soon be available on for you to read on the platform of your choice.
Letting it go out into the world and have a life of its own beyond my control is scary, but at the same time, exhilarating.
And now, now I can move on to other stories and other brave new worlds. Now I can start editing the books sequel that’s been sitting on my hard drive for the past two years. Now can work on the other sequels, and bring characters I’ve been thinking about for years, to life.
Over to you guys. Welcome to the world Marlyn Frostfeld.
