4/19: 345 words. Sometimes, it’s absurd how much research I have to put into the geography of an island that’s going to occupy about 2.5% of the book. But that’s been the theme of this whole novel, and it’s the major reason I don’t think I’ll be writing an travel action-adventure story again any time soon. Writing about the city I live in, like I did in Vulcan Rising, required so much less research, which in turn allowed for more writing time.

Don't miss anything about projects I'm working on, new books you should be looking for, and articles about the craft and business of writing. I'll also give you the first three chapters of my novel, Vulcan Rising.
