This week, I’ve been working double shifts. From 7:30AM to 4PM, I’ve been doing my normal work duties (and what a week it’s been). From 4PM-midnight and beyond, I’ve been putting the finishing touches on my new book, Invading Spaces. This last writing push has made me not want to blog much this week, but I thought I owed it to everybody to know where I’ve been.
My original goal was to finish the book by the 1st of July; that date came and went. My drop dead date was this past Monday; that’s come and gone, too. As of last night, the book is 99% complete. Tonight after work I’m going to finish the cover and deal with some minor formatting issues and then it’ll be done. It’s funny, the cover of Commodork just popped into my head, but I’m having a lot of issues with this one. My initial idea, an arcade cabinet with the words “INVADING SPACES” across the marquee and additional words across the monitor just isn’t panning out. I’ll try again tonight but if it fails again, I may have to go with something simpler.
Invading Spaces debuts August 9th at the Oklahoma Videogame Expo in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
