As I mentioned before, I’ve begun work on the sequel to ‘The Anomaly Problem.’ Since I started the new book, things have changed a bit. In fact, I think everything I said in that blog post is now inaccurate. I’m pretty good at this stuff, eh?
So here’s what’s going on. This book has been goddamn difficult to write. And I mean that in a good way. It’s turning into a completely different sort of beast than the first novel. Again, this is a good thing. I love my first book, and I’m very proud of it. But I’m taking what I’ve learned and putting everything I have into this new book, and it’s paying off.
How far along am I? So far, I’ve rewritten the first draft and am currently working through editing the second draft. More drafts will likely follow. And then, once I have a manuscript I’m happy with, I will probably hire a profession editor to look it over. I did this with the first novel, though things didn’t work out with that particular editor. It’s a long story, so here’s the short version: things went sour, and my lawyer said it wasn’t my fault. So let’s move on. I’ll be looking for a reputable editor in the next few months, so if anyone reading this has a suggestion, get in touch.
As I said, I like where this book is heading, and I intend to give it every chance of success. To that end, I am changing the release date from September 2017 to “When It’s Done.” Also, the title may change. ‘The Anomaly War’ doesn’t really fit anymore. Hey, these things happen.
Okay, back to work.
