J David Osborne, the man behind Broken River Books, just put out a weeklong submission window for 2015. While that’s a crazy long time from now, I’m going to shoot for it, which means a week full of writing. Going back into the old style, shooting for 5k words a day.
It’s going to be a peculiar novel. A noir set in a surreal place where it always rains at the center of a desert, inhabited by tiny white females who tattoo their skin and create masks out of dust when they hit puberty that they wear for the rest of their lives.
It’s gonna be strange and probably brutal, and it’ll be polyphonic magic realism, because that’s what always happens when I put words to page, but hopefully it’ll be something new and exciting and gnarly.
