One More Switch

Sometimes, you just have to pull the brakes and make the hard decision.

As work on Resolver starts to come to a relative close, it is with some disappointment that I must announce that the publication date is being pushed out to January 2018. This is in order to give me an extra 5 or 6 weeks to pull together one more critical draft of the book before handing it over to proof-readers for the final editing phase.

Naturally, it was a very difficult decision to make, especially as Resolver has been imminent and teasing release for quite a while now, but I feel that rushing out an earlier draft would have been to do the story and its audience a disservice.

Things are moving along. There are also outside pieces of interference in the real world that need attention, with time being extremely restricted at times. Working on Resolver after midnight some nights when I can squeeze it in has also led to a few pushes of word count that were not up to standard, which is what led to this additional draft phase. I promise that the result will be worth it, though.

Sorry for the added wait, folks.

Almost time.

Almost time.

Resolver Update: June 2017

Resolver is still ticking along slowly, folks.

As reported previously, the discovery of the story elements of the movie Arrival had a huge impact on the book's climax and ending, so large revisions were required in order to avoid unfortunate comparisons to that phenomenal film. The amount of similarities and coincidences surrounding the film and my plan for Resolver were scary in number. However, as of this week, I've compiled a final plan and the book is racing towards first draft status.

My hotel room on a recent work trip to the States had a very Tome-cover-like light bulb / lamp in it which constantly reminded me of Resolver work while away.

A publication date is still pretty sketchy, guys, but I'm optimistic that I'll beat George R. R . Martin to it.
