Mr Gillaspy, I am an avid reader of SciFi. I am in the military and so when I am on deployment, all my free time is spent reading. When I read your book, I have to say that I really enjoyed it. So with that being said, I have been checking for any news or updates about when the second book will be released. I noticed that the last time you updated this forum was back in July. By any chance do you have an update as to a release date? I know it must get old being asked the same question over and over, but as I am sure you do, you take it as being a good thing. Because it means that they all really enjoyed your book like I did. Well good luck to you and I hope you finish it soon. I know we are all awaiting it.

All I can say to Christopher and others with similar questions is, I’m slow.  The second novel is proving to be more difficult than the first.  I think I have performance anxiety.

A recommendation

Arwin Spicer, a member of my critique group, has her new novel, “Perdita” available for free 2/11/2013 and 2/12/2013.  It is science fiction and an excellent read.  You should give it a try.
