Okay, I’ve been cruising along in my writing so far this summer, though not perhaps as quickly as I would have liked. His Robot Wife: A Great Deal of Patience is shaping up, but I don’t have an estimated date of completion yet. I’ll post again in about a week and let you know the 411.
I’m already thinking about what I’m going to work on next, and I really think I’m going to hammer out the rest of Nova Dancer. I’m pretty excited about it. It’s a little like Firefly, in that it involves the crew of a small space freighter, but the universe is more Star Wars-ish, in that there is faster-than-light travel and LOTS of different aliens.
Make no mistake though, this story takes place in my own universe, one that I’ve had in my head since my days in High School. The premise is that the galaxy has been populated by many races from many planets for hundreds of thousands of years. Humans have spread all over the galaxy, but civilizations have risen and fallen so that the many human groups think of their most recent planets as home, and Earth is only a legend.
There will definitely be another Senta and the Steel Dragon book done before the end of the year. The title is The Dragon’s Choice and it really only needs some editing and polishing to be ready.
Finally, I want to finish another Astrid Maxxim book, but this one is only in my head at this point. Nothing on paper.
Anyway, check back for more updates on Patience, Mike, and Friends. By the way, this book will be the first of a trilogy of Robot books. I’ll fill in more details later.
