It’s almost time! This week I’ll finish sending chapters of The Last of the Ageless to my beta readers. So I thought it might be a good idea to let you know when I plan to publish these blended science fiction/fantasy short stories and novels.
I can’t believe the year is already halfway through! I’ve got some news to report about The Ageless, my post-apocalyptic futuristic sci-fi with fantasy elements, as well as the new novel I’ve only just begun.
The Ageless: Beta Readers
Not long after I created the Gantt chart I mentioned in my 2014 Writing and Publishing Plans post, I decided what I really wanted to do was to break up my beta readers into two groups. I had enough volunteers (~20) that I thought it would be better to do two rounds. Namely because I didn’t want 10 or so people all telling me the same problems.
I thought by breaking it into two groups I’d be able to get feedback from one group, make revisions, and then send it to the next group to find out if I’d improved it.
Halloween really is the best time of the year, when even non-geeks dress up and role-play as all manner of spooks.
In keeping with last year’s tradition, Dorian and I — along with some pals — attended the Geek Gala put on by the esteemed Charlotte Geeks. I dressed as a pirate. They had a great backdrop reading “A – Z-ombies Day Care” for photos.
