Well I should say so. I mean no one who knows me is surprised that I write about ancient Egypt. My Nephilim Quest series is about ancient human myths and time travel – to ancient Egypt.
But when I wrote my 2016 NaNoWriMo story, something quite unexpected came up. Yes, there is ancient Egypt, but the story happens in space. Yes, you read right. It is a kind of sci-fi environment. I never thought I’d write sci-fi!
And the story didn’t stop surprising me. I wrote it pantser style – I had no time to plan beforehand, being busy with other writing projects, so I just let my imagination have fun. I ended up with a story that is a mix of ancient Egypt, sci-fi, spells and witchcraft, afterlife, angels and demons and some odd humor. With a dystopian sprinkle.
sure scratched my head for a while at the result – but as I got many
encouraging words from members of my reader team who had received the story as
daily emails while I wrote it... I decided that what the hey – let’s publish it
and see what happens. And so the first book of the Space Witches –series was published
under the name The Book of Witches. (I'm writing book nr 2 at the moment)
Still, the most important thing is that the book was a hoot to write - I sure had fun :)
So if you are interested in the following…
