Finally. It’s done. I’ve got a first complete draft of the third novel in my Dinosaur Wars series. There’s still about a month of editing to go before the ebook can be released, but at least the story is complete and so is the trilogy. The cover image at left is a first draft as well. The backdrop with Phaeon Crater flashing its death-beam is about finished, but the Kra battle cruiser Nkinta is just a place-holder. It will get a pretty thorough going-over before I’m willing to let it grace the cover of the ebook, and later a hard-copy as well.
I’m pretty happy with this book. It took longer than I expected to write it, but that’s mainly because there were all manner of loose ends to tie up. A lot of good guys needed to be rewarded for their hard work and self sacrifice, and a lot of bad guys needed to get what was coming to them as well. It takes quite a while and a lot of effort to make sure everything adds up in the end.
And it does. I worried over just about every little detail anybody could wonder about, and I tried my best to weave every character’s experience into a complete and finished tapestry of who-did-what-to-whom and what-happened-next.
If you haven’t read the first two books, you’d better hurry up. Depending on how well or poorly you did in your speed reading class, you may not have time to read books one and two before book three comes out. And I’m working pretty hard to make that happen.
The first book is still available as a FREE ebook for Kindle, Nook, and a whole bunch of other formats, so that’s a good place to start.
