Why the long delay for more books?

Postby rsutc » 2008 02 17 0747

I've received some enquiries about why it's been so long since The Nexus was published and still no sign of The Builder. Simple enough:
- these books are long and complicated
- I have worked on material for both The Builder (#6) and The Throne (#7) which between them complete the story cycle
- I've been quite ill with persistent infections the last three years
- Life has many other pressures.

That all said, the first draft of The Builder is nearing completion. There are only 2 or three more chapters to write, then the editing starts. The Throne is perhaps 25% complete. No promises, but friends and associates may see a draft by September.

More on this topic:

(it is now September, so.....

I have spent some time on shorter stories that will eventually make their way into volume seven as a way of getting back into things. It will be a few more months yet before I can send any drafts of volume 6 to friendly readers, and time after that before a draft goes to the editor. What I may send out is drafts of one plot, rather than in the order they will be interwoven in the actual book.
