150k – Update

I’m up to 150k on this Novel and its not done yet!

That said right now its bigger than either of the first two books, which pegged in around 140k.   The current plan is to just keep grinding on it until the story is complete and then go for the jugular!  I mean editing passes.

I don’t think I’ll be split it up into two separate books but I’m not ruling anything out just yet.

Anyway just wanted to keep you guys in the loop!

Its flowing like fire from these fingers!

    I am very happy to hear that, and quite eager to be reading this!

    Glad to hear that its going so well!
    Do not worry if the book turns out to be around 200k words, in fact I would suggest you would seperate it into two books
    as 100k words is still plenty for a single book. And by splitting theim up you can sell more books which means more income for you
    which means you can write more books for ME! Erhm, I mean for all of mankind.

    Looking forward to how it turns out.

    You decided on how much to publish the book for yet? 3.99$? 4.99$ mayhaps?

    Out of all the series I am reading currently it’s a toss up between this and Wool… A VERY close toss up… So yeah, split them or not, I really can’t wait to re-hash my Mumford and Sons playlist on Spotify, crawl into bed for a weekend and just read what ever is in store for these characters I have fallen in love with… it’s also awesome that winter is just around the corner here… so crawling into bed wont be that bad of a thing!

    How bout either way hurray. I dont mind paying full freight for the occasional great read in all the chaff that i purview, and I think you got diamonds coming out here. (i have reread both books several times)However though I may not be actually holding my breath for the next installment it is begininning to seem as if I have been.
    One book or two, I am looking forward to the print.
    The book description was cool… I really like the way you have made the admiral make really believable, and likely galaxy changing effects on the systems around him. I can see him creating an empire second to none from the dregs of the cast-off-border-worlds and once more, you are making me believe it possible.
    speaking as someone who went to the middle east with every intention of making a difference there, only to find that the weight of societal momentum, corruption, and history was to great to effect in anyway that would have a lasting effect it is unussual for someone to create such effeect from a character and do it in a way that i can beleive. well done.
    his relationship is amusing as an aside, but it is the battles, and the glory that bring us to sci fi (I Believe).

    I look forward to next book, and the one after that one, and the one after that one and so on.
    I want this serie to go on for years. Though I dont want it to be ‘milked’.

    No matter, once this series is done I will read the ones after that.
    You sir, got yourself a N.1 Fan right here, anxiusly awaiting your releases!

    By ‘No matter, once this series is done I will read the ones after that.’ I meant that I will read any other series you will release beside this one, even if their not Scifi simply cause you know how to write a book which behaves like the ‘Sirens who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island.

    I hope you guys like this next one as much as you have the first two. There are a few twists and changes. Call them road blocks on the way to phenominal cosmic power, hahahahaha.

    But we’ll get there, we’ll get there.
