I have to kill a hundred people. It’s an author issue, and one that is going to occupy a good deal of my time in the coming months.
I wrote a blog post about it for fellow steampunk author Mark Hayes. Which was good of him, as he’s also one of the people I killed… https://markhayesblog.com/2019/10/03/how-to-kill-a-hundred-people-a-indie-october-guest-post-by-nimue-brown/
I had meant to do a cunning reblog this morning, but the technology has thwarted me, so, here’s the opening as a teaser…
“Let me begin by explaining Hopeless Maine. It started life as a graphic novel series set on an imaginary island off the coast of Maine. There’s now a role play game, prose books in the offing and other things in planning! For people who want to get involved, there’s www.hopelessvendetta.wordpress.com which is currently full of dead people…
Back in August, when we were figuring out the details for Hopeless Maine kickstarter, I suggested I could do obituaries for people as though they had died in the setting. Those became early bird bonuses, and “yes,” I blithely said, of course I can write a hundred of them.
Of course I didn’t think for a moment that 100 people would get in fast enough that I’d have to do it.”
And for the rest, hop over to Mark’s blog.
