Less than two months until Survival Machines is released and it feels like I can almost touch it!
The final full draft has been signed off along with the cover and if you angle your ear correctly to the breeze you should be able to hear distant printers humming away, using up the last valuable rations of the UK’s blue ink for the cover.
Remember, everyone gets a copy of the e-book as well as a physical copy (if you pledged for one) and I can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks of the characters you have named. Without giving anything away… a couple of the named characters have crept through to the final book, Origin Wars. Although dead or alive, I can’t say. :)
I’m making great headway with Origin Wars, which was left on ice back in Christmas 2019 at about 60,000 words (roughly halfway). I’ve had great fun giving it a post-lockdown haircut and adding new pieces in here and there. As it’s the final instalment, a lot of events are coming to a head and many questions are being answered as the team venture out on their various paths!
If you’ve read this far and run out of Easter eggs at home, you deserve a treat, so here are a few collections of free short stories and first chapters by a host of great new writers for you to download!
