I was informed last night that I was the most prolific writer on the Unbound website.
I felt slightly ashamed, I mean I didn't plan it that way, it just sort of happened.
I released News from Gardenia on the Unbound website in 2011, this was originally panned to be a one off work of science fiction.
As I was working on it I was encouraged and bouyed up by feedback from people who were supporting the book, it struck me that I had a lot more to say than the original idea behind the book would support.
You see I'd heard this term trilogy being bandied about, a science fiction trilogy.
I decided I'd always wanted to write a sceince fiction trilogy, it sounded right, three books about the same central character. Easy peasy. Okay, incredibly difficult, absorbing, time consuming and stressful but it's all my fault.
So once News from Gardenia had been published and the few people who'd read it responded very positively, I launched News from the Squares on Unbound. This was in late 2012.
Once again it reached it's target and we published it in September of 2013. Once again the feedback was very positive, all except for the ending. People swore at me for ending it like that, cliffhanger... what happens next?
Now I have just launched News from the Clouds which has been planned as the third and final book in the News from trilogy.
I'm supposed to be writing it now, I have been writing it and I will continue to do so. It's growing fast. I'm really enjoying it. Gavin Meckler is still struggling to get back home. Surely if it's a trilogy he has to get back home.
