I have spent most of this year working on finishing the draft and doing a first revision of a novel that I plan on releasing in December. It’s a sci-fi space opera thing called Two’s Company. It has spaceships, artificial intelligences, corporate plotting, a wise-cracking heroine, a fist fight or two, and a save the day just in the nick of time ending. It’s been fun pulling it together. Mentally exhausting fun at times, but fun.
It’s also the longest thing I have written so far. Right now, it is about 75K words. I think I still have a few connect-the-dots scenes to put in the last couple chapters, but it is just about ready for a read-through, and then beta readers. Revising has taken longer than I originally planned, but I want to be sure it’s right.
I will be talking with the artist who will probably be doing the cover artwork next month. This will be the first time I have had a professional cover done. We usually do them here. Okay, the BaldMan usually does my covers. I just look and say: Oh, yeah. I like that! LOL But, this artist has done some design work for us before, and it turned out great.
So, that’s the plan as of right now. Two’s Company, sci-fi, space opera novel, coming in December. I’ll have more information, some excerpts maybe, and possibly even some fun stuff as we go on through the summer.
