The MAIN REASON I chose to go indie for is I had a VERY specific story to tell, fully formed over decades, and I didn't want someone taking that narrative away from me. This saga is my lifelong project. Nobody's touching it but me. 9/?

So. Here’s the thing. I get asked all the time about being self-published. I’m in my own zone here, because for everything but , I will seek traditional publishing routes. 1/?

Wrote a sickening, tragic chapter of Book Three. I'd been holding off. Big sigh.

I apologize in advance for what this chapter in Book Three will do to you. Oh and that chapter. Oh and this other one...oops.

Someone asked if Forster is his only name. That's just his last name. Some folks go by their last name on Mandira, some their first, others by nicknames. His full name is revealed in : Linden Deming Forster.

I can't wait for book two comes out. Based on that ending, I'm curious about which direction you will take it (I can imagine a couple of directions.) I'm excited to see what you have in store for us readers in this new world/universe that you are building.

I just finished & I highly recommend it to all / folks. It not only contains beautiful prose, suspenseful story & great characters, but it's also a new spin on a space odyssey that will have you guessing until the very end. .
