A slight delay...

Posted on
Work on Under a Winter Sun has been delayed because I just had a baby. Hopefully he will be a sleepy little kid.
If not, I will channel all the sleepless nights into even more hard boiled adventures.

Despite the despicable kittens, this season's Authors' Retreat was once again a success. I managed to edit parts of the sequel manuscript and even got 2000 new words written. The story is shaping up pretty well, I think.

This writer's retreat is a total failure.
It's impossible to pen hard boiled action with a purring kitten on your lap.
Damn those kittens.
Damn them all to hell.

Autumn Author's Retreat

Tomorrow I'll be going away for the annual Autumn Author Retreat (try saying that three times fast after a couple of beers).
Hopefully I will get a lot of writing done.

Wish me luck.

Wherever did he come from?

A new character just turned up out of the blue, ready to rock 'n roll, and demanded to be in the sequel to Under a Dark Sky. He's a bit of a tough guy and he's bringing an interesting back story to the table, so I couldn't say no.
It will be very interesting to see how the novel develops now that he's on board. This should shake things up a bit.
I hope everyone will be alright.

Great review of Under a Dark Sky on Amazon!

It's incredibly macho and hyper-violent still, which is fun. It's well-written, has some neat ideas - the especially odious fundie churches are a good twist ... Well worth a read. It also wraps up into a self-contained story with the promise of a sequel, rather than a cliffhanger. Like I said, a cut above. It reminds me a lot of Richard K Morgan's stuff ... Plz write more of them Mr Dahlgren. [5/5 stars] — Read the review in full on Amazon

Yay, I finally got my first 1 star review on Amazon!

If I can't get into a story by the first 10% it's over. In this books case there simply isn't any story to get into,,, or it's so poorly told the reader has to guess what it might be.
