A new novella?

So last writing update I mentioned a new setting for my first novel. After learning that Abaddon Books was calling for 30k-40k novellas in honor of their birthday I decided to take a shot at it using my new setting.  The working title of the novella is Down in Dixie and in the spirit of Newman’s Anno Dracula and Moore’s League of Extraordinary Gentlemen you will find a lot of references to fictional universes and characters.  I hope you guys enjoy all of the easter eggs, but just be ready for it to be fast, tense and dark.

I will keep you updated as the novel progresses.  I have just written the first 3000 words and I hope to have the manuscript ready to be sent to Abaddon by mid-September.  While I hope they accept it, I am tempted to self-publish in case they don’t.  I guess we will all have to wait and see what the future brings.
