Bad news on the release date of the fourth book: Human Empire 🙁
A month ago Ian and I were confident we’d be finishing the book around about now, and handing it over to the Recon Team prior to a mid-September release. We’ve slipped. A release early October is more realistic.
Between Ian and myself we’ve had one bereavement and one very ill family member in recent weeks. I’m not apologizing for any of us putting family first under difficult circumstances, but I am deeply disappointed that we’ve lost all traction for 2-3 weeks. We’re back in the game now, though. Well, nearly… I’m taking my family for a vacation next week.
We think the book is well worth the wait. Well, we would do; we’re unashamedly biased! But you can find out for yourself if you like by requesting the preview edition (Kindle format only), in which we’ve polished up the first hundred pages or so.
All this better for the wait, hoping everyone is doing well
All the better that should’ve said……oops
Thanks, Steve. We’ve mostly gotten our lives back on track. I reckon we’re now 3 weeks behind where we would have been, and we’re fighting hard to ensure it doesn’t slip any further. Expect announcements on that very topic within the next 24 hours … 🙂
I’m sure it will be worth waiting for. Keep up the good work. I couldn’t agree more with SGt. MIKE
As much as most of us hate the wait. Wait we will. Family comes first. Enjoy our vacation.
Thanks, I will!
Take care of you and yours. The book can wait and should so you can give it 100% of your attention when it can becomes a priority. I wish your family the best and I hope you enjoy your well deserved vacation. May God speed your journey.
Thank you Jason. I appreciate your good wishes.
Family is infinitely more important than a book. Family helps makes us who we are. They inspire us, they motivate us, they comfort us.
Very true 🙂
Enjoy the down time with your family, which comes before the book anyway. As a fan of your series as are others I’ll read it when it comes out. Thanks for what you do. Essayons.
