Progress on the WIP: #SciFi in the Making.

The new book is progressing well and now stands at 40,591, an increase of 13,318 words this week. The story is moving apace and characters continue to grow and surprise. I’ve done a little more research and learned about some new materials that are currently under development; they’ll be useful in envisioning some new inventions for the people to use. And Earth is becoming a factor in the story now; further possibilities of investigation and maybe even contact, who knows?

Make sure you read Blood Red Dust so you’re primed for the follow-up, set some distance further into the future, when it appears.

And, if you’ve read it, please consider penning a few words of review to post to the publisher’s site, Goodreads, and Amazon: it helps give the book exposure and informs new readers.

My thanks to those who’ve already done this. I really appreciate your efforts.

  1. I get this. I’m writing as fast as I can, but the science is coming in almost faster than I can keep ahead of it. This week I learned about “time crystals.” Now, THAT is something I’d love to incorporate. But how, after already establishing my world in 35k words? I guess…the next novel.

    • It’s definitely a problem for those of us involved in science fiction, Kecia. For the first in this series of books, I decided I just had to ‘bite the bullet’ and, as you say, put the newer stuff in the next novel. The first was quite close in time, Earth Year 2074. But the next book is a lot further into the future, so I can incorporate a lot more of my own imagination. After all, who knows what the situation will be in 3 or 4 hundred years?
      Good luck with your writing!
