I don’t mean to sound sour or anything; they might be right for all I know. I’m planning to post more in the future, but for the time being I have my hands pretty god damn full with other things.
The trailer for Awakenings is finally out! It took a while, but I finally got a look and feel I’m satisfied with. I hope you all enjoy the end-result, and that it might win over a few who are on the fence regarding The Fall of Noman, or just fantasy in general.
In other ‘not working on Frostbites, the next book in the series’, news: I’ve been collaborating with a friend of mine, Magnus Blystad, on a project called ‘Of Monsters’. You can read more about it, as well as an excerpt here! I will probably post more on this later as more is released, but I highly recommend a peak. The world Magnus has created is really a weird, unique and brilliant version of our own.
In other, other news; I’m also working on a short-story/novella called Empress, which I aim to complete over the summer. This one takes a closer look at the inner workings of the H’arians, and one of their main trade empires as they attempt to strike a deal with one of the more secluded clans. I’m also writing a found-diary kind of thing, called Survivor 1, which I suppose is more of a creepy pasta than anything else. We’ll see how it goes. Finally, Fall – the follow up to the sci-fi novella Rise – is still on schedule to be completed this year . . . for some reason. We’ll see.

Seeing as the ‘great launch’ is fast approaching (unless I’m shot or hit by a car or something), I’ve decided to make a little progress bar for you to look at! I’m sure you all have better things to do than gaze at this page, waiting for the book to drop (although, I don’t see what could possibly be more important), but I’m posting it anyway:
When that little thingy is full, the final revision of my book will be done! I probably won’t update it after every chapter, but I’ll try to keep that number rising at a steady pace. I’ll admit to having quite a few butterflies right now – this is my first publishing after all. If all goes according to plan, it should be available for purchase come august.
As a reminder: Until that number reaches 100% my book is available for free. One revision poorer, but finished nonetheless. Take a gander below if you don’t want to wait / don’t want to waste your money on me. (Or if you want to give me feedback that’ll make it into the final product.)
Please and thank you,
Well, that’s it! The second revision – or rewrite, rather – of the brick ‘Awakenigs’ has become is done! As of right now, it clocks in on 408 A4 pages, containing 237 825 words. Too much? That’s for you to decide, I can’t be bothered to read that thing… (Yes, I’m kidding.)
I’m still a few revisions and a professional edit away from being done, but for all intents and purposes, that’s the finished product up there. If I retain my health and sanity, Awakenings will be released this side of 2014. For the time being, you can get it for free, though. (AND with the added bonus of tearing the author a new one if you don’t like it.) I won’t spam this revision very much, because honestly I’d prefer it if you all buy the finished product instead.
Still, feedback is key to writing something that works, so I’ll listen carefully to every piece of it I get. Your notes, if pertinent, will make it into the final product, and you will get credited. Even as slim as the chances are (I’m a realist), if I do make it big, you’ll regret not getting your name in there!

Good reading! – Bishop.
