As you may recall, the fate of the third World Spectrum novel, Human Again, has been somewhat uncertain. Publishing a book is a pretty difficult process, even with a service as easy as Smashwords, and I wanted to be sure the demand is there.
I don’t want to make any definitive announcements right now, but Human Again‘s future is looking better. I’ve been looking into options for cover art that won’t be as costly — cover art is by far the biggest obstacle to my putting out more books.
It’ll still be a few months at least before Human Again sees the light of day, but progress is being made. I’ve started editing it, and I’m making much quicker progress than I expected to. Partly this is because it’s a relatively small book compared to the first two, but a lot of it is down to my being caught up in the story.
I’ve said it before, but Human Again is the first book I’ve written that I also enjoy reading. Normally, I hate reading my own fiction, and editing is like pulling teeth. But with this book, I’m genuinely enjoying reading through it all.
I can only hope other people will enjoy it as much as I do.
Stay tuned for more updates on Human Again‘s progress, as well as more hints on its story and tone.
