It's taken over 6 years, around 220,000 words, endless re-writes, incredible generosity and patients from thousands of people who supported the books on Unbound but today, for the first time, I am in possession of all three books.
News from Gardenia
News from the Squares
News from the Clouds
Supporters of the latest book will be receiving their individually signed copies in a few weeks.
News from the Clouds is released in early May.
After the first two cliffhangers, book three has an ending.
As my wonderful editor Rachael Kerr stated. 'it's an incredibly satisfying ending but with a twist that you really don't expect.'
All three books are set 200 years in the future, well, now it's 196 years because they are all set in 2211.
I wanted to write something that was the antithesis to the dystopian, post apocalyptic deluge we are drowning in, so the News from Trilogy is a little more optimistic, while hopefully not being too sickly sweet, everyone is lovely and all the birds sing in harmony.
It's not a perfect utopia, more a protopia, it's better than today but not in any way perfect.
Now I just have to wait until more people have read it.
