As many of you already know, Wild Space: Transformations has at last, launched. It was a long journey and I thank all my readers for being patient as I put the final touches on the grand finale to the first series of Wild Space.
Many readers have asked me what the deal is with calling this the Series 1 finale.
What Does That Mean?
As I’ve mentioned before, I am writing Wild Space as if it were a television series. Each book is short with the intention of being able to be read in just a few hours – much like a television show. I also decided to break up the series into a set number of books – or episodes. In this case, each series of Wild Space will be comprised of 6 books – or episodes.
Onslaught served as the first book, or in television terms – the series premier episode. Transformations is serving as the series 1 finale, or in television terms – the season finale. Due to the unbelievable response from readers, Wild Space will be back for a second series before the end of the year. In fact, it will probably be back much sooner than I had anticipated.
I never imagined I’d have the amount of success with Wild Space as I have had. Readers are gobbling this series up and it has forced me to put many of my other projects on hold. I do want to finish up two books that I have in process, but I also don’t want to slow the momentum created by the success of Wild Space, so I’m guessing those projects might continue to be on hold while I go back to work in crafting the second series for the hungry readers out there.
I can’t thank you enough for all your enthusiasm. Please, continue to spread the word about this series and I will continue to pump out the books.
As I discussed in my blog post on Monday, Wild Space: Transformations is sporting a new Independence. I had an opportunity to revamp the ship and gain more flexibility in cover design, so I took it. I’m super excited by the new look and I’m already receiving feedback from other readers about the exciting new look.
Transformations is a book about changes in the lives of the crew and in the trajectory of Wild Space. Wild Space isn’t just about the crew of the Independence. While to this point, everything we’ve experienced in this region of space has been through their eyes, the glorious part about this series is, I can introduce new characters and share their adventures. This is something I did with Captain Miranda Waters.
Most readers probably forgot about her after her few appearances early on, but after Transformations, I can guarantee readers are going to want to know more about her. In fact, I have an exclusive short coming out that will bridge the gap between Transformations and Book 1 of Wild Space Series 2. I’m going to make it an exclusive title for subscribers to my monthly eNewsletter. So, if you want access to this short story, titled; Kill Switch, you need to SUBSCRIBE TO MY NEWSLETTER and I will send it to you as soon as its ready to go.
Transformations gave me the opportunity to tie up loose ends for Series 1.
At long last, readers will get some much needed answers to the questions raised in Wild Space: Sedition and I will be tying up some other loose ends. But get ready for some major set ups for the future of the series. Captain Avery and the crew of the Independence have had nothing but one trial after another since arriving in Wild Space, and you better believe that when this book is over, their lives will never be the same. When the final cards are played, you’ll completely understand the title of this book.
It feels good to finally bring Series 1 to an end. Transformations was supposed to be released back in December of 2016, but revisions forced me to push the launch back. At long last, I am getting a chance to reveal the secrets that have been hidden from readers and now I get to set up the future of the series. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I enjoyed telling the tale.
As the Launch Week Celebration continues, I will be blogging next, about the Imperial ships which will now be appearing of the redesigned covers of the Wild Space series. You can visit the BOOKS tab on my website and take a look at the new covers.
Until the next post, Happy Reading!
