Revision, revision, revision


Took a look at the price of one of my hardbacks on Lulu and decided that the First Editions are just too damn expensive. So I’ve been busy reformatting the text and tidying up some punctuation errors that somehow missed the proofing process. 155,000 words is a lot of reading, and although I still like what I’ve done, to be honest I’ve read the damned thing so many times that I don’t want to read it any more.

However, I’ve slimmed it down from 479 pages to 339, and will be reissuing all editions at a hopefully lower price. I know I’ve spent over five years on the story, and despite forward moves in science and technology it hasn’t dated, but to be honest I want to move on.
