During Bill’s visit a couple of weeks ago, I learned some things about illustrating comics that led me to start rewriting the Legend of Khi-Mara comic scripts that I had been working on. This week I finished the rewrites and concluded The Chronicle of Kwon-Lo Chen. With that, the first twelve issues are written.
When I finished that, I started doing one more pass through Solfleet: The Call of Duty to prepare it for a new publisher. That publisher has certain specific manuscript requirements that the previous one didn’t have, so I have to make a number of minor changes and fixes, none of which will alter the actual story. Hopefully this pass will only take a couple of weeks and I can return to my final writing pass on Star Trek Soldiers of Pawns: War and Peace sometime in mid-May and finish that before the fall. Once that is finished, all my novel-writing energy will be poured into Solfleet: Beyond the Call. I intend to finish that before the calendar flips to 2012.
I have also, during whatever shorter blocks of writing time I can squeeze in here and there, started making story notes for the Solfleet and Elsewhen comics, and have started developing the Recon 7 comic. Bill continues to develop his Return of the Frontiersmen comic.
