Update on Adversary – Hive Mind 5

Adversary is now at the end of the Beta reading stage. It still needs to go through the final revisions, copyedit, proofreading, and formatting stages before it’s ready for publication. Unfortunately, it’s a lot harder than usual to estimate timescales for those stages.

That isn’t just because Adversary has turned out to be even longer than Borderline, fighting it out neck and neck with Sol 2781 for the title of my longest book. After a year where we’ve effectively moved three times, I’m dealing with one lot of medical stuff that I didn’t expect to happen until August, another lot of medical stuff that was totally unexpected, and a lot of complications from the great boiler disaster.

I am continuing to progress Adversary as quickly as possible, but there are inevitably some days where I feel like I’ve been hit by an especially aggressive express lift. Please bear with me when I’m slow to reply to messages, and keep checking the Coming Next page for updates on Adversary’s progress through the final stages to publication.

    Thanks for the update. I hope all of the home and medical issues are smoothed out as much as possible and that express lift leaves you alone for a while.
