Nimbus is…done. #sadface

Nimbus Volume 4Last April, Austin and I launched NimbusIt was an exciting project, and we approached it with zeal. We talked, we outlined, we wrote–we pretty much dreamed about our little steampunk world. And now, almost a year later, we have finished drafting the novel. I spoke with Austin last night, and we finished our final chapters within hours of each other.

All that’s left is final edits, proofing, and review. And then we’ll be done. Done with Nimbus.

We’ve absolutely adored working together, getting to know all of you through this project, getting to know each other better, and learning about the world and people of Nimbus. And it’s over now. The story has been wrapped up, and the conclusion is–to us, at least–satisfying.

Writing the last Rucca chapter honestly left me sad. For everything the character was, I felt like I really got to know him. And I liked the fella. So writing that final sentence was hard. But I did it. I feel good about it. When I hit CTRL-S and watched that Dropbox icon move from blue to green, I felt like I was going to cry. Outside of revisions and a few short shorts we have planned, that was the last bit of Nimbus  left.

It’s over. It’s done. Our novel, our experiment, our attempt at making steampunk fun and cool is finished.

Parts 1-3 have been available on Amazon for a while, and Part Four will be there within a few weeks. Austin and I will meet within the next few days to read and give notes on our final chapters, then we move into final proofing and revisions. So you folks should have Part Four in your grubby little hands soon.

But I just wanted to let you know that it was done.
