One step towards the next step

I managed to finish the third draft of the “sequel” to my novel Brother soul, sister flame today. Now there’s just the editing and the polishing and then off to a paid critic. I’m nervous (when am I not?), partly because the last few weeks with not even reaching the finals in the Swedish Selmapriset and the ever ongoing difference of opinion between me and the vast majority of the writing community (which seems to favour assembly-made entertainment rather than artistic attempts), have pushed my self-confidence to a record low: I simply cannot produce relevant texts; partly also because this new book will, in the eyes of many mainstream readers and writers, be virtually unreadable. Well, I think it will prove a small step forward for the fantasy genre.

I will probably publish it using my prize from last years Indie Book Awards. Now there’s a confidence-booster!
