It’s Wednesday, halfway through the week. That must mean it’s time for your next chapter in The Road to the Stars: The Cassidy Chronicles Volume Two
Last week you got the Prologue, in the form of four mock-newswire articles, setting up some of the deep background information.
Did you take notes? There’s a quiz!
Okay, okay. No more questions. Answers at the bottom of the post.
Now, here’s some exciting news: you can now get this book as an Audiobook! There’s even a sample up on the front page if you want to listen to it, or you can click the button below or the cover image to buy it, one credit if you have Audible or you can buy it for cash through Amazon.
Now, a little story. This wasn’t intended to be a sequel to Volume One; it was supposed to be a separate sci-fi novel. I wrote a full first chapter and then put that aside; it was good, and I like the main character, but I don’t know where the story is going to go.
So I tried again. This time I got most of the first chapter written, but I wasn’t happy with it. I could tell where it was going to go but I didn’t know how to get there. Then I had the happy thought that I could drop that chapter seamlessly into Cass and Ken’s universe. BOOM. And we were off and running. A few minor tweaks to the chapter, and it just flowed.
Enough of that; on with the excerpt! This would be C1,B1,V2 if you’re keeping score.
