To Those Who Might be Watching This Space

Thank you for showing interest in my work-in-progress novel.
You know I was doing really well with this story late last year. I took a little break over the holidays and the first two months of 2020 because that is both birthday season for me and the busy time at the accounting firm I work.

Then the Covid-19 crisis hit.

And I realized about half my book was just wrong.

See, my protagonist grew up in a society that was supposed to be culturally scarred by a plague. The way I imagined such a thing to work turned out to be incredibly naive and ignorant. After the insights I gained from living through an actual global pandemic, I decided to scrap what I had so far, and rewrite the whole novel. The plot is still the same it’s just going to be set in a completely different world.

And because I am going to rebuild my world anyway, it’s going to be more steampunk. Because steampunk is awesome.

So the story I uploaded so far is going to be removed. I will restart from chapter 1.1. soon.

I hope you will enjoy the rewrites.
