In which I fail

After Killer Looks I had to take a good look at what I’d done. I’d cut a lot out, a lot of it was just poor, and I’d ended up with a healthy sixty page salute to American Psycho. I’m happy with what I did with Killer Looks, but realize it could be beefier. This is when I realized my ‘write four books in four months’ Summer mantra wasn’t going to pay off.

With creative difficulties and timing issues, I’ve decided to cancel work on my novel Train until next year or so. Or maybe never, I don’t know. Tears In Rain 2 will still happen for September-ish, and Up, Down, Left, Right will reach its finale come August 3rd.

I’m sorry. My life’s about to get a lot busier so these inconsistent updates might become a ‘feature’ of Blogossus. After Tears 2 it’ll be full frontal fiction for Blogossus. Pretty much.

KILLER LOOKS: PART ONE Release

Happy Halloween.

Although Halloween was literally five minutes… six minutes ago? Timing!

Killer Looks, my long-form film critique a la Tears In Rain, is on schedule. I’m releasing ‘PART ONE’ which includes the introduction and the first section today. Section Two will come out in December and then other parts following that.

You can read PART ONE right here. I’m taking a Trimalchio approach to it, with full PDF and .epub and eBook releases following the ‘full’ release with chapters/sections littered up to the full release. Just to make sure you know that I am actually working hard.

There’s no ‘front cover’ yet, that’s been designed by another good friend of mine for the full release in April or something. Have fun reading and then sending sly insulting comments to me soon after!

NaNoWriMo begins… today actually. Interesting. That will be fun.

Cheerio.

Killer Looks Update

Basically I had no idea that I wouldn’t be able to balance school and writing this year. Last year I was pretty good with it, even taking on some extra responsibilities. This year seems a lot more important, a lot more tense really. I’ve decided to cut down on my writing and, following Aliens season, there’ll only be one essay a week at most. Fiction Fridays will carry on though. Killer Looks has three sections finished but only one of them is really ‘publishable’ really. That will be releasing this Friday. Section Two will release in a month and then Three will release at some point before the end of the year.

Sorry and many thanks,

Nath

Killer Looks Update

My book on American Psycho, titled ‘Killer Looks‘, was announced a while ago. I’ve done quite a considerable chunk of work on it and I said that Part One would be released back in August. It’s now mid-September. I’ve found schoolwork and other pressures have now thrown a spanner in the works and I’ve decided to split Killer Looks into five parts now. This is to give time for myself to do all of my exams along with working on other projects such as Trimalchio and the upcoming NaNoWriMo 2012. The new structure of release is as follows:

September 28th Part One: Psychosis (40 pages)

October 31st Part Two: Politics (25 pages)

Mid-February Part Three: Theology (25 pages)

Mid-March Part Four: Social Issues (40 pages)

April Part Five: The World of Easton Ellis? (20 pages)

Each part will not release with a cover, but they will release with ePub/Kindle editions though. It’ll be around 150 – 160 pages in total which should be fun. This really wasn’t that tough of a decision to make given over the next few weeks you’ll see some dramatic changes here on Blogossus.
