A while back I sat down to write a short sci-fi story for an anthology. I had this idea for a simple space opera and decided the best way to write about space was laying upside down with my feet in the air. Don’t ask why, who knows why I do anything I do?
What was supposed to be no more than 5,000 words grew into a 30,00 word novella. After I let it sit and came back to edit, I realized I really had something. Here we are now, and By the Stars is set to be released by European Geeks Publishing in the fall.
When I submitted this story, I had already outlined a second book and started mapping out a third. After talking with my publisher today, the green light has been given to this three book series! The Embracing Entropy trilogy seems to be happening.
Each novella will be released as a separate ebook and once the trilogy is complete, it will be compiled together into a print volume as one big novel. I couldn’t be more stoked.
I’m ready to dig in and start the process of finishing this wonderful monster. I can’t wait to share it with all of you, but of course now I have the weight of about 60,000 more words for two more novellas hovering over my head. haha
I prefer it that way. I work best under pressure and love having more to write.
Get ready to read peops!
