This is a short story (or flash fiction) once again based in Mega Burg. I wanted to write something short over the weekend, and this idea popped up in my head. So, here you are, rats arguing over “science”.
Bells and Ribbons is a short story set in my original world of Mega Burg, a setting where rats managed to survive and thrive in a vast tunnel complex right beneath a fast food restaurant known as Mega Burger. While I am still in the progress of writing my novel about the rats of Mega Burg and how it came to be I wanted to take some time to give all of you a glimpse into this curious world. A world that the rats have to build from the base up, forging their own laws, rules and beliefs, and facing many dangers on their own.
The reason I wrote this particular story is because Valentine’s Day is approaching! So I thought I could pour some romance ahead of time.
I know some people dropping by here might take a look at the date of my last posting and wonder whether I am dead, or otherwise unable to work at all. Nothing further from the truth! I am hard at work on another novel that I think I shall call (since a book’s title could be the very last thing an author will write) Mega Burg: Exodus.
Yes, I have finally decided to begin work on Mega Burg, my own original idea. Not only that, but unlike my previous works I intend to sell this one through Amazon. Why? I always wanted to be a professional writer, and you cannot call yourself a true professional unless your work actually earned a buck. The line between “Hobby” and “Professiona” might seem thin, but I do not wish to stop on just one novel. The world of Mega Burg has to be expanded.
At the same time more funds means more possibilities, including more free comics, stories and whatnot. I have ideas, but not the money to see them through.
Now, let’s talk a bit about Mega Burg: Exodus. The Novel will be focusing on the “birth” of the Mega Burg rats. How they ended up where they were, and the challenges they faced as their colony took its baby steps. Depending on how the writing goes, and how much I end up including in the novel itself, the final length (that I aim at) is aroudn 50,000 words. Furthermore I want to sell the novel as an E-Book on Amazon. The simple reason being low costs. As much as I would want to make prints of it for sale or find a publisher that might not be an option just yet.
And, in the end, if the book will be in its E-Book format it’s a short step from turning it into a physical novel, no?
The planned ETA for finishing the Novel is January, and if all goes well it will be published in February. As the situation develops I will post up updates (and maybe some cover art too!)
For now, enjoy your stay and be free to look through my already available stories and projects!
