I absolutely love this. The world-building is extensive, rich, creative, grounded in plausibility, and it offers infinite potential for exciting storytelling.
The setup is only the beginning of what I like about this story, however. It promises to ask questions about what it means to be human, what it means to be machine, and just how blurry the line can be between the two. The philosophical , social, and psychological explorations here are exactly what makes science fiction such a great genre. You’re not merely creating a new world here, you’re forcing us to deconstruct and re-evaluate our own.
I really want to read this book.

Hi Tabi,

I love the concept here and I’m looking forward to reading it! 

Here’s my tiny critique of the project page: The images are so large it takes a lot of scrolling - I would recommend making them smaller. There’s no story synopsis right now. Lastly, please give the motivation for a rise in crime: is the welfare program not enough for a good living, are people just greedily looking for more, is there just a general drug epidemic perhaps driven by a cultural malaise, or something else I haven’t thought of?

I’m looking forward to that first chapter,
--Landon

So I added some new information to the Project Human page. Y’all should go check it out.

.

.

Psst, there’s a tentative funding start date!

.

.

Also, I’m going for the win with Project Human. It deserves nothing less than all the publishing perks Inkshares has to offer it . . . including hardcover. Yes, it will be published in hardcover. If that means the majority of the funding orders are e-books until the mainstream hardcover price is set (probably under the current funding price of $30) then so be it. But I won’t budge on hardcover, even if it takes a year and a half to fund.

I am already planning goodies and raffles and cool stuff for supporters. I want to spill ALL THE PLANS, but I shall let you wonder instead. I can say there will be T-shirts and artwork involved. Maybe a robot, too.

We’ll see.

And so, back to working on that first chapter I promised I’d share at 100 followers. 400 more followers and I’ll start to feel good about this reaching full publication whenever funding starts, because each one of you IS going to order . . . right?

So go. Recommend the heck out of this draft. Please.

Anyway. If you haven’t already heard the buzz, my currently-funding project Scribbles has just 2 days and 23 orders to go. You’d be able to read it before Project Human, so I recommend grabbing a copy while you still can get a free book with it, too.

Quick pop-in to say that I almost have a first chapter ready to share with those who have recommended Project Human so far . . .

And I’m putting together a poll/suggestion board for the name of the second book.

Finally, a brief synopsis of Project Human (like those publisher ones on the copyright page): 

Android fighting in Atlanta City brings a human girl and experimental AI together as they navigate through a web of politics, secrets, and the fact that they might just be falling for each other.

I’ve been thinking about Project Human’s sequel, and so here’s some random images about the events/things that happen in it . . .

Things are still in development for this project (ha, the pun!) but I now have a goal of starting funding for this in January.  It’s a tentative date, as I have several things I want to happen first:

  • A completed second revision of Project Human
  • 500+ followers for this book
  • 50+ recommendations and/or reviews
  • First draft of Project Human’s sequel well under way/already written & in revision

So if you haven’t recommended Project Human yet, NOW is the time! You will included in an exclusive email update list, and will see chapter updates and information before anyone else. Also, I shall be eventually pulling beta readers from this email list, so there’s that, too.

And now a broad summary of Project Human in images & GIFs:

Psst . . .  I’m always updating my Pinterest board & Spotify playlist for Project Human,which will give more pictorial & musical peeks into what this story is all about.  

So this is a basic update to say "I’m here and this is still definitely a thing".

Those of you who recommended Project Human on Inkshares (it’s the only way I can get email addresses) should have received my first email-exclusive super update. If you want to be on that list, too, just hit that recommend button and that’s all you have to do.

Here’s a snippet for everyone, though: 

A frown burrows between Hailey’s eyes, so shallow I don’t think she knows she’s actually doing it . . . or that only something like me would notice.

And remember, I’m always updating my Pinterest board & Spotify playlist for Project Human, which will give pictorial and musical peeks into what this story is all about.

If you want to read a great robot book NOW, then look no further than The Life Engineered available both here on Inkshares and Amazon as a paperback & e-book.

Extremely brief update:

Wow, we’re climbing towards 100 followers! Soon as I hit 100, I shall release a chapter (though some of you, the ones who click that recommend button, will get that chapter earlier *hint hint*).

And about that chapter. Um, well, writing this has been the most unconventional project I’ve done. Ever. The world of 2120 is just so big, and I keep stopping to figure out a bunch of HOW’s and WHY’s. It’s tedious, but with each venture into various future things, this story keeps coming into clearer and clearer focus.
