The End of Alice

Well my first and possibly last venture into the world of Romantica is at an end.

I can only assume that the ending did not meet expectations as the score plummeted overnight. Some kind soul gave me 10 for technical and a lovely 3 for appeal.

I gave up being affected by scores after writing Oceania - it's just not worth getting worked up about. I write what I feel and I can't help it if my English eccentricity bleeds through.

I'm currently adding the final touches to a Mr Hyde story and hope to start posting it during early December.

After that, I have 2 SF stories planned, an terrestrial alien thing called Symbiosis and the sequel to Oceania. I'm a bit behind schedule but hope to catch up once my current thing is loaded into the submission queue.

This is probably my last blog posting until the new year. I'll post again when I have a firmer release date for Symbiosis but it probably won't be until Jan/Feb.
