The Babylon Eye ready to launch…

My next book, The Babylon Eye, is about to be published. It’s something a little different for me, science fiction set in alternate world South Africa.  I had a lot of fun with it. The main character is my age for a change.  It’s been interesting writing about a woman in her forties. Her age means that there’s space for her to have had a complicated and rich past life before the story even begins, something that’s not always possible with a teenage protagonist.

For the past few weeks I’ve been focusing on the print and ebook formatting. It’s a finicky process but I do enjoy it, although it does bring out my obsessive streak. Choosing the exact right symbol for the text separator took my much longer than I’d like to admit 🙂

    Just finished my read through last night… at 3am… had to see how it all ended. Another great story. Is this planned to a standalone book or you planning more in the world?

    Jon, so glad you enjoyed it! The plan is for it to be a three book series. I’m releasing the sequel, “The Real”, early next year 🙂 And then I have to get onto writing the third one…
