Updates On My Writing


I originally published Qubit back in 2013. I decided to go the indie publishing route. I did some promotion, but I didn't really know what I was doing. Marketing is marketing, but each market is a bit different, and publishing is no exception. That's one of the gotchas of indie publishing. At any rate, the book didn't sell well. I took the advice of many other authors and focused on my next book. Which I'm still working on.

I more or less forgot about Qubit. In time, I gained some perspective on the story. There were some changes I wanted to make. Maybe one day I'd go back and make them. In the meantime, I was focused on my next novel.

And then along came the Self-Published Science Fiction Competition, inspired apparently by the Self-Published Fantasy Blog-Off, and generously organized by Hugh Howey and Duncan Swan. I decided to submit Qubit, which, in turn, spurred me to make those long-contemplated changes. I revised the story, published it as a second edition, and submitted it.
