Book 2 of the Generation Mars series now stands at 103,321 words, which is an increase of 9867 on last week’s figure. The novel continues to go well, in spite of a few impediments to progress.
I thought I’d have the first draft completed by now. However, along with constant new developments in science and events surrounding the red planet, further new moves were put in place by my cast of characters. An unruly lot, with their own plans and wishes, I tend to go with them. Fighting them makes the story less character driven. With luck, events and the judgment of my players will allow me to complete the first draft soon! Watch this space.
You’ve read the first in the series, Blood Red Dust, of course, so you’ll be ready for this second book when it appears, later this year, I hope!
Thanks to those readers who’ve already penned reviews on the publisher’s site, Fantastic Books Publishing, Goodreads, and Amazon, recording their impressions to help new readers. Such efforts really do increase interest and exposure for books in an overcrowded market.

To those who visit this blog for the ‘Best Words’ posts, my apologies. For reasons I’m completely at a loss to explain, I missed the post last week. But there will be one this week.
