ElectriCity

the essential kit

Author Kait Nolan wrote a blog about Kickstarters and platforms (featuring me!), which caused me to go have a look at the most successful fiction Kickstarters.

NO DOMINION’s still in the top 15, which surprised and delighted me. DINOPOCALYPSE NOW, which I’ll be writing a book for next month, is still in the top 5. (And Tim Pratt’s latest Marla Mason novel is also in the top 20! Yay!) The whole thing made me kinda want to run another Kickstarter.

Kinda. :)

I’m not going to (despite somebody asking for an Inheritors’ Cycle Kickstarter the other day), but one of my post-contract plans is to finish the script for Fred Hicks’s ElectriCity graphic novel, which we do expect to Kickstart when we get all those ducks in a row.

I have a *lot* of post-contract plans, because there’s no known cure for workaholism, but ElectriCity is one of the handful of smaller (for the value of smaller that means “130 pages of comic script”) projects that I think would be hugely satisfying to get written. It’s front-loaded writing work for me, but beyond that it’s sheer flipping fun. I’ve project managed a comic before. I *loved* it. I really want to do it again.

And when I mentioned it on Twitter, our artist sat up and said, “Yes, please. Now, please!”

Anyway, so yeah. I have far too many potential projects and still have a book to write under contract before I can go anywhere near even ElectriCity, nevermind the others (which I am not fool enough to detail for you!), but that’ll be fun, when I get to it. :)

  1. Hi,

    I love the Walker papers! This may be a stupid question, but does the series really have to end? I just finished Mountain Echoes at 3:47am. I had started it at at 9pm the night before! I didn’t look at your notes til this morning and got the surprise that next Walker book is the last one. I will miss the series. It was a book release I always looked forward too. I had actually pre-ordered Mountain Echoes, but I hadn’t read it until now because I was trying not to read it fast and in one sitting and as you can see from above epic failure Instead I feel like one of Joanne’s wights today for staying up so late.

    Well, good luck with all those new projects after you finish the last Walker book. Is it a possibility that in a few years, maybe an Aiden story?

    Thank you for a wonderful series.

    All the best to you and yours!

    1. Hah! My very favorite reader responses are the “I stayed up all night!” ones. <3

      And yes, it does have to end, because as a writer and a reader, I vastly prefer stories that come to an epic ending instead of petering out sometime long past their sell-by date... :)

      There are SO MANY spin-offs I could do. Maybe someday! :)
