As part of the IWSG monthly blog post, I wrote a page on my website.
The subject was “Did you ever say “I quit writing”?”

So how exactly did the idea for the series Nephilim Quest come about? What have the Watchers, the Nephilim, angels and ancient Egypt to do with each other? Where did the idea of time travel come from?
The article is at the Images of Centuries -blog and gives a little peek into the book and why it was written.
In the past you traveled to experience new things, to have a bit of an adventure. These days you know all about your destination beforehand – the element of surprise is almost gone. Where can you travel to exprience adventure anymore?
Mr Mummific’s book “How I Became a Mummy” was published in October 2016.
The book was chosen as the Book of the Month of the American University Press in Cairo in November.
So I decided to take the plunge. I’ve never taken part on NaNoWriMo, but now I thought I’d try.
And not only try, but also share the story as I write it. If you wish to read it fresh from the “press”, typos and all, check out:
So far I have planned it will involve ancient Egypt (Is someone surprised?), magic, sci-fi, a little dystopian sprinkle there too… An impossible mix, but I love challenges LOL 😀
And the work name of the book is Space Witches. 50.000 word target in a month.
Yep. I must be mad. Publishing Nephilim Quest 2 at the same time. And writing and illustrating the sequel to Mummific’s book (How I Became a Mummy). But I have to live up to my reputation. Which is something along the lines of “the odd Egyptologist geek writer”.
