It has been quite a while since I've posted, but with good reason. I've been doing a considerable amount of writing for Itsgeektime and I've also been doing some behind the scenes work with these books. Not the least of which is working on getting the second anthology volume completed. My goal at this point is to have both the anthologies out by next year and have the first draft of the second anthology done by this year, but we'll see how well all of that goes. At this point I'm through two out of the ten stories and roughly one third of my expected page count.
Even with the end of the series written this anthology works as a sort of swan song for some of these characters and moments. I get one more chance for characters to surprise me and reveal secrets about the world. I also get to detail some of the minor events that are barely referenced in the series in a more complete fashion. Last night I completed Medic's section and while it was sad to say goodbye to another character I felt it was a good way to leave things off, because for me it's saying goodbye on a high note.
Well, back to work, but be aware that things are moving behind the scenes and hopefully I'll have some more news to post soon.
