Boksignering

18-12-2014 » Progress report, Science Fiction » 0 kommentarer

IMG_2869Skyggespinneren ble lansert mens jeg fortsatt hadde tilhørighet i Beijing (som bildet viser), og derfor ble det ingen boksignering på det tidspunktet, men hva er vel bedre enn å signere romanen tett før jul?

Lørdag 20. desember fra klokken 15 til 16 signerer jeg min roman hos Bokhuset Libris på Jekta Storsenter i Tromsø. Håper å se mange kjente og nye fjes der, og at boken blir å finne under mange juletrær i år, for til neste år kommer bok nummer to ut i serien om Den siste Navigatør.

Arbeidet med oppfølgeren – arbeidstittel Lietas drøm – går meget bra, og førsteutkastet er snart klart for innsending. Antydet lansering høst 2015. Forvent mye spenning, nye avsløringer om den enigmatiske rasen Skyggespinnerne, og en liten dose Steampunk. I andreboken introduseres også en tredje fortellerstemme, som sier litt om livet på Jorden i min fremtidsfabel.

Om vi ikke ses på Libris, ønsker jeg alle en riktig gledelig jul og et godt nytt år!

for quite a while. I will try my best to keep you in the loop for the future. Yes, I’m back in China, after four years away. And this time I’m putting some real effort into learning the language once and for all. I signed up for a nine month course at EF Beijing. It’s very intensive, and I’m learning a lot. In a few months I should be speaking and reading Mandarin like a pro. Well, maybe not like a local, but at least I will be able to communicate and continue learning without going to school every day.

So, I’ve been busy studying now for three months. And so far I’ve only been to Beijing (obviously) and Tianjin, which is a rather large city half an hour outside Beijing (on the fast train). I’ve also been to the great wall, north of Beijing (the photo). However, Christmas is fast approaching, and with that a three week vacation from school. My girlfriend and I are going to Shenzhen, Hong Kong, and Tokyo—in that order. Of course, I’ve been to Shenzhen before, but never to the other two cities. Les mer »

The rollercoaster ride that is 2012 is finally drawing to a conclusion. It’s been a crazy ride of ups and downs, but of course we persevere to write another day. Most unfortunately I lost my father, and then my editor quit her job at Schibsted Forlag, in the middle of the process of finishing Skyggespinneren. I have complete faith in my publisher, but losing your editor in the middle of

the process is bad news indeed. What happens if the new editor disagrees with the old? Do I start all over again? I don’t think I will.

The good news is that the chief editor seems to like the third draft, with only minor adjustments suggested. That is fine by me. My side project Tidevann is also done in its first draft, but no conclusion has been drawn to it. Recently I have begun working on the sequel to Skyggespinneren, while also adding to the timeline of the series. There’s still some work to be done there.

As of right now I’m still waiting for a new editor. I’m hoping there will be no more delays. Fingers crossed.

Prometheus deconstructed

01-10-2011 » Progress report, Science Fiction » 9 kommentarer

Autumn is here, and the starship Prometheus has been launched on its long journey toward the bookstores. The path leads through uncharted territory, and like the colossal dreadnoughts of Neal Asher’s universe, it will change form along the way. The mission, however, will remain the same, but the title will change. E-mails have been flying through cyberspace between my editor and I, and we have agreed on some necessary changes.

The title will remain secret for a little while longer. I don’t want Ridley Scott or James Cameron to ruin this one!

As for the changes, some weight will be shed, and some chapters rearranged. The kids, Davi and Lieta, are moved up in the story to better accommodate young adult readers, as was my intention. Title in place, cover illustrations process initiated, synopsis and marketing teasers launched. All that remains is for me to rearrange all pages, to deconstruct and redeploy all the might of this galactic behemoth. Of course, that

Prometheus victorious

The last few days have been a rollercoaster ride for me, and I mean that in a positive manner—as I love rollercoasters. Even when in the dumps, they are fun! Got a phonecall from Schibsted Forlag—a major Norwegian publishing house—telling me I was one of the finalists in their grand competition. So I went to Oslo on Sunday, June 12 and presented myself on Tuesday, June 14, at the publisher, talked to the press, and received the Special Award of the Jury (in Norwegian: Juryens spesialpris) for the novel Prometheus.

On that note, friends and followers, it’s as good as it gets. Prometheus will be published, on paper, and maybe later as an e-book, by the fourth largest publishing house in Norway. And the award? 50,000 NOK prepaid, not a fortune but a very decent start of things to come (I hope). Les mer »

Happy May 17, friends and followers! It’s our National Day, and what better opportunity to update the blog? My science fiction novel Prometheus is still under consideration, as it was submitted to Schibsted Forlag March 1. It has received great reviews from my test readers, and I am hoping the same goes for the good gentlemen and ladies at the publisher. Only time will tell. I should receive an answer in the near future. Les mer »
