Time for a trim
It’s been a while, Team Darwin. My apologies. I don’t think there’s been much to report on these past few weeks? Nothing much has happened as far as I can remember… no world-wide cataclysmic events affecting the entire human population of Earth from the snowy-wastes to the tropical forests… until now.
I have before me a file which fills me we equal excitement and terror – the edited copy of Survival Machines!
Yes, the novel has been dissected and preened, examined and recalibrated by Hal Duncan, the very same editor whose superpowers brought lightness and shade, flow and form to Darwin’s Soldiers. A first peek and Survival Machines is looking in good shape, so I will crack on with my scissor-hands and snip, trim and embellish where needed.
To everyone who pledged to 'Name a Character' – I have emailed you recently to find out your name selections. If you haven’t heard from me we must have already discussed potential names and your creations are already part of the adventures!
Stay safe everyone and if you need to go on an adventure, pick up a book.
