Book 18, Repercussions has taken me a long time to get through. In fact, it’s taken far longer than any of the other books in the series for a variety of reasons relating to the story as well as some issues I’m dealing with in my personal life. Currently I’m working on chapter 15. I’ve got about two-thirds of that chapter still to write and then one more after that.
I wasn’t sure if this was going to be the final book, or at least the last one for now, but there’s something that they come across in this book that gave me an idea for the next one, which will be called Reapers, which will take the characters to the very core of life in the multi-verse. At least, that’s probably what’ll happen. I haven’t written it yet, so we’ll just have to see how things play out. I do have a few ideas though.
Now, I have been asked on many occasions about print copies of my books. The reason I haven’t done print copies up to this point is because the program I use to write my books, Sigil, writes natively in Epub format, and I also write in a very specific e-book style to make it easier on the reader’s eyes. Combine that with the fact that I wasn’t familiar with Create Space formatting, and it all just made it easier to keep the series strictly in ebook format. However, recently I found a Create Space template for Word that completely simplified the process and will allow me to keep the books looking essentially the way they do in ebook form, with a space between each paragraph and line of dialog. Yes it’ll add to the page count considerably, and the cost of production, but it is far easier on the reader, and considering that my books are probably each about 90% dialog, it’ll make it considerably easier to follow. I’m not sure when I’ll start working on that, but I do have plans to create print copies of the books at some point here in the future.
That’s it for now. Back to work…
