The Jim Henson Company announced the "Author Quest" a while back - a competition where authors, new and old, compete in writing a prequel to the Dark Crystal movie. The prize? $10,000, publication, and a contract for any future novels related to the one you write. You start by submitting 7500 - 10000 words, whereupon the top … Continue reading The Dark Crystal Author Quest & Project 3!
I got a nice little comment by Zahir yesterday. You can check his comment out for yourself here. He nominated me for "The Liebster Blog Award." Most of you probably know what kind of award this is, but since not all of you do, I'll explain it here! The Liebster Blog Award is an award … Continue reading The Liebster Blog Award
Roughly 10 minutes ago I finished the second draft of my second (yet technically first) novel. Now awaits 6 weeks vacation for me! This means that I'll begin on the third draft on the 31st of December! ... but I probably won't since it's New Years. Which means I'll probably be busy on the 1st … Continue reading 2nd Draft of Project 2 Complete!

A lot of people message me on facebook saying it's always offline and if it, on rare occasions, is online it's just an empty chair. The truth is - I'm invisible. When … Continue reading Questions about the Live stream

Four more major events need to happen so it might, unfortunately, be up to another 100 pages before I call the first draft complete. That would bring me back to 80% … Continue reading 99% Complete
After reading this post on the blog Chasing Moonlight I decided to post some (two) pictures of my workspace! And the heart of it all! My computer. It's brand new (and so is the screen and mouse). Was sooo close to getting an iMac but decided on building my own machine instead. Next computer will, without … Continue reading My Workspace!
I wanted to publish a post about Mass Effect 2 today but since that would make five non-literature posts in a row I decided to give you a brief update instead. The work on Project 2, my debut novel, is going really well. Though I am afraid I will go beyond the 400 page limited … Continue reading Project 2 update!
The interview with me was published yesterday in Ystads Allehands. It is, unfortunately, in Swedish so you can't read it. Luckily I'll provide you with summarising bullet points. The headlines is: "His dreams become science fiction." My burning interest for writing took me to the University of Birmingham to get my BA in English with Creative … Continue reading My interview
I would first of all like to thank all those who took their time to answer the post-apocalyptic survey! I'll keep it online for a bit longer in case there's anyone who chickened out the first time and would still like to give it a go! I would also like to tell you a bit … Continue reading Update, and what’s to come!
