I’m so excited to have this new book published!
Singularity is my third published book, and second novel. It’s quite a switch from my first novel as it is set in the Science Fiction genre. I’ve been interested in Space Exploration Mysteries since I was a child watching Star Trek: The Next Generation. I’ve long wanted to try my hand at it.
The process of writing and publishing this book was an interesting one. I had planned for something like three years that in 2015 I would publish a particular book, then in the middle of last year my priorities changed, and I knew the book that I had already written would have to be postponed at least another year. But it would mean waiting three years or more between my last book and my next book. I wasn’t comfortable with that, and wanted to have something to offer my readers this year as well.
So last summer it was a scramble to look over my list of potential writing projects and choose one that I felt I knew the story outline well (so I could get started immediately), and that in my head was a relatively short story (so I could finish it quickly). The project I settled on was Singularity. A surprise, because I knew the structure of this story was quite different from anything I had done or read before, so I had originally intended to wait for this one until later in my career when I had more established confidence in my writing craft. For one thing, I wasn’t even sure the story would make sense, which is why I was specifically compelled to call upon test readers to give me feedback before I tried publishing it. The tests all came back extremely positive, which gave me confidence to move forward with the project.
To describe it in a nutshell, it’s Groundhog Day in space – with two particular twists on the known formula, which will become apparent as you read it.
It’s a story concept I had been interested in doing for a while, ever since I’d watched a particular documentary on the nature of singularities. I was just expecting to save this story for later. However, it was the only project I felt I could write, edit, and have published within a 10-month period (while finishing editing on another book as well). Now that I’ve done it, and I know that I can start a writing project and have it published within a year, I’m urged to get into a rhythm of having a new book out each year, and am already laying the background on a new story.
I’m very excited to be able to share this new book with my readers. I hope you will all enjoy! 🙂
