No Dead Heroes  
I just turned in the final draft of my novel, and I am still struggling to figure out how I feel about that. Excited, yes. Exhausted, a little. But also exposed, anticipative, curious, daunted. Even belligerent, a little.

For those (few) here on LJ who I haven't already bothered with the news: I'll be publishing my first 'professional' novel within the next months. A m/m historic romance, set around the Second World War in Germany, so far titled 'No Dead Heroes'. If you'd like to learn more, head over to Forbidden Fiction, the story details should be up any of these days.

I never thought I'd be publishing a novel, much less gay erotica. But hey, life's all about the surprises. It is, isn't it? Right now I feel like it is the most pedestrian, run-of-the-mill story and everyone reading it will chuckle gently and think I'm a ten-year-old or spot me for the non-native speaker that I am. Can you tell that I am a little nervous?

Well, I will be posting the news here every now and then again, so you'll be up to date if you want to.

Wish me luck!

Thank you, dear!

I've seen your author's profile is up there, too, now. Congrats to you as well! So nice to have you along for the adventure.

Indeed, thank you as well! I'm looking to be where you are in a few months... thanks for suggesting all the feelings I will probably have!

Gee, thank you! So at least now I'm (probably) being spared the embarassment of no one buying that thing... ^^
