I’ve nothing much to say about The Perihelix, except my editor is working on it and I have a provisional launch date of January 12th. If I don’t get the edited copy back in the first week of December, I think the launch date will slip. I want to set up a blog tour, but I can’t find a tour provider with a good record of managing scifi books. I looked at the blogs involved with a couple of scifi books toured by a reputable outfit, and most of the blogs involved had very few followers. I’m hoping my Goodreads groups will provide a better platform – or I may put together my own blog after the hard work of the launch is done.
I have done some work on the cover, though. I’d like to play with it a little more before a formal reveal, although I did put the current version in my graphic for my Blogoversary over on Jemima Pett. The eagle-eyed may have spotted it already!
Book 2 has got about 3000 words in the file – a combination of the first chapter and a half which I carried on writing straight after finishing the Perihelix (in August! How time flies), and notes and snippets, which occur to me as I go. Basically, the plan for the book is coming together, and I came up with the title Casualties of Warp the other day. Better than my last idea, but I think titles have to wait for the book to be finished. I haven’t checked whether there’s anything out there with that title either.
So, if you’ve got any ideas to help me on blog tours, or thoughts on the second book title, or would just like to say hi, pop a comment below.
