I started writing INVASION in 2003. Back then it was a huge book, filled with dozens of different characters and storylines, and ran to almost seven hundred pages. Obviously, publishers wouldn’t touch it, and I later learned that a 90k/400 page book works best. So I chopped out huge sections, whole storylines, in order to adapt to the right business model. INVASION, in my view, is a much better book now, but I look at some of those original storylines today and think, I really enjoyed writing that – I wonder if anyone would want to read them?
So, I’m thinking of getting them all together and publishing them in a separate book. And like INVASION it’ll be free, a sort of ‘deleted scenes’ deal. I’ll probably call it INVASION – The Lost Chapters. Something like that, anyway.
It’ll take a fair bit of work, so I need to know if the appetite for more INVASION is out there. If it is, let me know by adding your email address to my Lost Chapters mailing list below. I look forward to hearing from you.
