When are going to finish &/ or post the rest of this story? I've read thru chapter 5 & am more than ready to read the rest.

Thanks.

Thank you!

The short answer is I plan to make one post each month, and make them big like this one.

The long answer:

I'm on the fence between self-pub and trad-pub with Stephanie at the moment. I have befriended an incredible editor who is the reason this version is superior, and right now we are working on the first 20,000 words.

Another friend is helping me query the thing (which I am incapable of doing alone) and she's brilliant. I am going to continue posting new bits here as and when we get round to editing them, but in the meantime I am looking at publishers.

I'm planning to have about 40k of the novel here, and then launch the hardback. I've put all else (outside Earthloop and Synaesthesioid) on hold because Stephanie is very important to me, and if I'm honest I am surprised by all the positive feedback. I had long ago gave up hope for trad-pub with this one, but everyone around me is telling me to go for it.

The simulation wants me to focus on her.

Cheers! I'm going to be focusing on this story a lot more from now on, taking projects one at a time :)

I liked the story very much! I’m intrigued with the last sentence, “you are the experiment!”

Thank you, that's a fairly recent addition. It's going to get weirder from here

Interesting snippet of a story. It remains to be seen where this is going and what will happen next.

Thanks Mitchell. I can assure you it is going to get weirder. My only hope is that the buildup is not too slow.

But that's not up to me, it's up to you when I post the next 5k soon!
