Times are bad. Children no longer obey their parents, and everyone is writing a book
While my times haven’t been great, I’m not here to talk about bad times. And my children are all grown. That just leaves a book.
While I’m continuing to write short stories, I’ve well into planning my next book as well.
Rodney, is it really a “next” book? I thought you were a new fiction author?
It’s true I don’t have a fiction book. But, I did write a book on Microsoft Exchange. You can still find it on Amazon. But, please, don’t buy it. It wasn’t a bad book, but like most technical books, it was obsolete just a few years after it was published back in 1996.
My next book will be a science fiction story. Writing a book is a process. Today I started assembling the team that I’ll work with. I hope to have the rough draft done by the end of February. That will hopefully set us up for a late summer release. I’m not ready to share the name or the story.
Rest assured that when we get closer, y’all will be the first to know.
An editor I respect told me that a first novel might only sell 5 or 10 copies its first year.
Given the support y’all have given me, I think we will surprise them.
