My novel will be out

I'll be a real writer next Fall! Just heard yesterday that a small Finnish publishing house will put my historical science fiction/religious satire/horror/hardboiled crime -novel out some time after the Summer. This is a manuscript I've been working on and off from the early nineties (and, if you want to, already in the late eighties, since this is loosely, very loosely based on the first short story I published in 1988!). I don't know what kept me at it, but now I'm glad there was that something!

The working title for the book is "Gotterdammerung" (has been already from the afore-mentioned short story), but it doesn't fit the contents of the book, so I'll have to come up with something.

Congrats! I burst out laughing when reading that about you finally becoming a real writer :)

You already are, but I know what you mean. Which publishing house is it going to be, or is it still a secret?

Thanks, Susu! Yeah, it was a joke, but there's still something extra about getting a contract for your fiction from someone else. I can't as yet say what the publishing firm is, but I'll let you all know in due time.
