Work in Progress: Wasteland

Cover art for WastelandA few years back, I had a short story that I was working on that was a post-apocalyptic story of a place where things wouldn’t grow, suddenly encountering a thing that had grown. I poked at it for a while, but it wanted to be something more. So I outlined it for a novel.

I tried to write it during a NaNoWriMo, but the words just wouldn’t come out. So I shoved it onto the back burner for a good long while. I’ve recently picked it back up, and I think the novel has some really good bones, and that it might turn into a decent book. Because I’m also working on getting¬†Brass and Glass 3 to my editors,¬†Wasteland hasn’t been my top priority, but I’m hoping to finish up a first draft by the end of October.

I’m still trying to decide how I want to go about publishing this book. It has a non-traditional protagonist (a woman in her 50s) but also some really contemporary commentary. So even though I have my super fancy handmade cover, I think I may try to pursue traditional publishing routes at first, then look at some small press options, and then possibly self-publish.
