It’s been a long journey.
I started writing Above Ground sometime in mid-2009. It was my first foray into the world of webfiction, and the first novel I ever finished.
Writing by the seat of my pants had its downsides, however. In late 2010, I began writing the sequel, Between Worlds . . . then realised just how much was wrong with Above Ground. It was the ugliest first draft in existence.
Disheartened, I abandoned the universe for a while and went off to write about zombies instead. But in September 2011 I bit the bullet and began writing the second draft—which you have just finished reading.
So first of all: thank you for reading. I hope you enjoyed the ride.
Secondly, yes, there will be a sequel . . . one day.
Above Ground: the book!
In October 2012 I released what I’m calling “the final FINAL version of Above Ground“. It’s fairly close to the online version, but, well, better.
This is the cover:
Some of you have already read a few chapters of Between Worlds. Well, it all needs massive revision, but I do intend to continue the series. Probably not for a long while, though.
In the meantime, I’m planning on experimenting with side stories. I also have a few other projects I want to dabble with too.
Thanks again, all. I couldn’t have made it without you.
