Hiatus Is Over.

Back To The Business Of Writing:

 

Planet of Statues cover
Issue #2

The past few months have witnessed: hurricanes, floods, power interruptions, fires, water shortages, and the gamut of destruction. Trying to overcome any or all of the above has been a strain on so many of us. Along with having to deal with some of the previous I have personally endured: flu-like symptoms, a change in ISPs and a case of shingles that have curtailed my creative juices; actually bringing them to a crashing halt. I’ve also got a couple of book reviews that need doing soon. Having survived all that it’s time to finish my latest book, “Planet of Statues.”

The writing of the book was stalled at 40k words; twice what I had originally plotted out. But as happens sometimes a story grows and evolves of its own accord. Interesting “B” “C” and “D” side-stories which only enhance the finished product, demand to be heard. I’m not sure where it will top out but I am not going to hurry to a finish just to get it done. I originally stopped because I wanted to get clarification of some of the science aspects of the story.

I’ve planned no actual schedule for releasing the books but I’d like to get them out in a timely manner, hopefully a new issue every three months.

So what have we to look forward to:

Planet of Statues cover
Issue #2

The second issue titled Planet of Statues, is about a desperate mission by space travelers to find a suitable planet to colonize because their own planet has been used up and made more and more inhospitable due to disregard for their planets ability to regenerate itself. The search is a long one because, while the number of planets in the galaxy are numerous, many are disregarded for various reasons. One such planet is a Garden of Eden, lush and overgrown with vibrant foliage. Life in the oceans is full of aquatic life; the land masses contain no sentient life, only insect and reptilian life but no mammalian forms. Closer inspection finds evidence of an ages old civilization grown over by plant life, who have left behind a planet of statues. Questions are numerous; can they find the answers before disaster strikes them and possibly destroys the entire planet? Continue reading What’s Next for Realms Uncharted Presents?
