Hello, fine readers and followers. How are all of you on this dreary, gray, New York day? I hope you’re somewhere sunnier than I.
If you also follow Paul Robinson, author of Ghosts of War, you’ll have read that Inkshares has a big backlog and that production of new manuscripts is delayed. I mentioned this, too, a few updates ago. Status quo.
However, I’m close to being done. The beta readers who came through for me really came through, and I’m grateful for the fantastic feedback they provided. I’ll wait for official word from Inkshares about when I should actually deliver the manuscript, but I expect to be done soon.
The one complication is that I’m leaving the States with a view to not coming back. If Trump gets elected, maybe I can petition for political asylum, but I’ll be trying to find an amenable locale even if the blue lady takes the cake. I expect the bulk of my editing to be done on trains, when I’m not looking out the window, because I expect it will be difficult to sit down and write when I’m in one foreign city after the next, most of them for the first time, and I’m wanting to explore.
So, I’m thinking delivery to the Powers that Be by the end of November. If all goes well, you should see the book in the late Spring or early Summer of next year.
In the meantime, please encourage someone you know to buy Disintegration; it not only helps me but it helps Inkshares and publishing and--if you’d like for their to be continued literary and the creation of art in the world--the best way to ensure that is to support art, artists, and the people who provide the platforms. With real money (or fiat money, more accurately, but you know what I mean. :) ).
If you’ve already bought a copy of Disintegration, all you need to do is ask and I’ll deliver an advanced digital copy to you.
Good day, sir (or madam, or otherwise).
I said: good day!
(except, when you buy Disintegration, you win ;) )
