Last night at 2 a.m., I sent off the first draft of Death Match (formerly known as Sudden Death), the final book in my trilogy of novels based on the Blood Bowl board game. I had an absolute blast writing the book, and I got to pull off some amazing scenes that had set-ups running all the way back to the first chapter in the trilogy’s first book.
Leaving these characters and this world behind, possibly forever, has a tinge of the bittersweet about it. However, my editor at the Black Library (the incredible Christian Dunn) tells me that if the sales are there he’d love to see more novels in the series. So, now we just have to wait for those numbers to roll in. Wish me luck! Or, if you want to have a more direct effect, buy the books and recommend them to your friends!
Of course, it’s not really all over until April, when Death Match hits shelves. For me, though, I have to put this all behind me for a while and move on to the next thing. That’s the life of the freelancer, for good and for bad. Fortunately, the next things in my path look like great fun too.
