I’ve been through and corrected some minor logical inconsistencies (which sometimes required rewriting entire conversations) which were introduced as a result of my quest for snappy dialogue. Hopefully some of the snap has been preserved as I removed a bit of the absurdity.
One of my writing group fellows helped to prune the tech speak and ensure that it all looks good as I attempt to keep the science part of my science-fiction as believable as possible, in the David Weber style.
Now the main hope is that the plot actually comes together in an explosive and entertaining fashion, as I believe it does, and that I haven’t dropped any threads along the way. I think it’s pretty damn good.
I hope I’m right.
Sins of the Father is now entering a “friends and family” beta (at approximately 86,000 words) with the expectation of release before year-end. Wish me luck!
