2017 Week #20 Update

Thanks to Betty for her reviews of Whispers of the Dead and Enemies of the Batsu and to Davida for her review of Peripheral Encounters! And yes, I’ve finished the rewrite of Endurance of the Free and started working on the third-pass polish. The end is nigh.

2017 Week #19 Update

I want to say thanks to Davida for her review of Compromised Inside. And I want to say how grateful I am for how wonderfully last weekend’s Starting the Slowpocalypse promotion went. Nearly 750 readers around the world got the box set while it was on sale, and I hope they enjoy those books!

Also, I’m only about 90% done with the rewrite of Endurance of the Free. It’s not that I didn’t get a lot of work done this week, but I ended up having to make a lot of structural changes to the climax – what order some scenes were in and what person’s perspective they were shown from – so there was quite a bit to do. But the book will be all the better for it.

2017 Week #18 Update

Thanks to John for his review of Enemies of the Batsu and double thanks to Davida for her reviews of Certain Hypothetical and Threat Multiplication!

Also, I’ve lowered the price on the box set of my first 3 Slowpocalypse novels to 99¢ this weekend for a very special promotion, so if you haven’t already, get Starting the Slowpocalypse while you can at this price.

Meanwhile, I’ve been chugging along with Endurance of the Free, and as of today I’m about 80% of the way through the rewrite. Hopefully I’ll have it finished by this time next week.

2017 Week #17 Update

Thanks to Sheila for her brilliant review of Enemies of the Batsu!

I’m about 65% done with the rewrite of Endurance of the Free, and it’ll probably take another two weeks to finish, then another week or so for my third pass polish. Meaning I should be able to get advance copies to people a couple weeks before the official release. And I can’t wait for that day to get here!

Also, for a limited time you can get the first book in my Slowpocalypse series, Certain Hypothetical, free when you sign up for my mailing list the easy way with Instafreebie. As part of Alasdair Shaw's SFF giveaway I’m taking part in.

2017 Week #16 Update

Thanks to Davida for her review of Durable Impressions, R.J. for his review of Enemies of the Batsu, and Regina for her review of Whispers of the Dead. I’m glad you enjoyed those stories!

Meanwhile, my pace has picked up and I’ve gotten about halfway through the rewrite of Endurance of the Free. It looks like I’ll be revising and polishing right down to the wire on this one, because I want to release it as soon as I can for those of you who’ve told me you’re waiting with bated breath (or words to that effect) and at the same time need to make sure it’s as good as I can get it. Even more than my previous books.
