Author’s Note: Book 2: Complete!

Wow. It’s been a rollercoaster of a ride, on both sides of the page! But, it’s finally done. This week’s post, Avatar, marks the end of Book 2 of Starwalker.

This week is also the end of the second year of the Starwalker serial! Two years; two books; just over 200,000 words: I think that’s a pretty good average.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who reads this serial. You give me such wonderful support and encouragement! You guys are the reason I write (and post). Thank you for sticking with me (and pointing out my typos! Self-editing is so hard). You make it all worth it. ๐Ÿ™‚

But what does all this mean, I hear you ask!

Well, first of all: it doesn’t end here. I have ended Book 2 on a little bit of a cliffhanger (or a big one, perhaps!), but don’t worry: Starry and her crew will be back in Book 3, and the truth about the ship, the star, and the consequences of it all will come out. I started this journey with twelve notecards plotting out the Starwalker‘s path, and I still have four to go. I’m far from done with this story and Starry has a way to travel yet!

However, before we all tumble back down the rabbithole (or, in this case, Step portal), your author is going to take a little break. I’ve got a couple of ebooks to edit and release (of the Apocalypse Blog), and need to refresh myself a little before diving into the fun of Book 3.

So, this story is going on hiatus for a month, to return with Book 3ย on 29th February. What better way to celebrate the leap year than with shiny new Starwalker?

Thank you, my friends; you will hear from me soon!

    daymon34 – it’ll be like an extra birthday present for you! ๐Ÿ˜€

    mjkj – I know, I can’t believe it’s been that long either. Seems like Starry started up just last week!
    I’ll be sure to let you know about the ebooks, too. Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Kodes100 – so glad to hear you’ve enjoyed the story so much. Makes me a happy writer! You are very welcome! Thanks for being an awesome reader. ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy the break!

    Also added an update on my writing blog about what I’ve been up to lately. Trying to put together a post on Starwalker too; hopefully that’ll go up soon.

    Discovered your story just a few days ago and I have enjoyed the ride the entire way through the archive.
    So many fun and wonderful moments with my housemates likely wondering what I was laughing or saying “Heck YES!!” at. It would be safe to say you have snagged yourself another reader and fan.
    I look forward to the start of book three, do enjoy your rest.

    Well, I’m usually pretty good at figuring out plots but I have to admit yours hit me right between the eyes. I’m glad I only have slightly over a week to wait. Good job and I thank you profusely for the creativity you’ve put into this project. I think I’ll wander on over The Apocalypse Blog now to keep me occupied for the time being.

    argh.. still more than a week to go, and after the 5th time reading the whole thing, it doesnt help much stemming off the withdrawal symptoms anymore ….

    heck, yesterday i started talking to my computer…

    i just hope i can keep a shred of sanity until you continue this fabulous tale… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. targetdrone Says:

    oh, what i forgot in my post above… you said book 2 is completed… but where is it published? and is it available as ebook somewhere? didnt find it on amazon for the kindle ๐Ÿ™

  10. Melanie Says:

    Targetdrone – aww! It’ll be back next week! Almost there. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Book 2 of the Apocalypse Blog is finished. It’s currently being proofed, and almost ready for release. I’m hoping to get it out in the next couple of weeks, all things going well. It’ll be going up on Amazon! Soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Melanie Says:

    Andrul – thank you, and welcome to the blog! So glad you’re enjoying it. ๐Ÿ˜€ Have fun with the Apocalypse Blog!

  12. Melanie Says:

    Marcus – apologies for taking so long to approve your comment! I found it buried among piles of spam. ๐Ÿ™ Stupid spammers.

    Happy to have you with us! I’m so glad you’re enjoying the story, and I hope your housemates are understanding of Starwalker-inflicted exclamations!

    I had a good rest, and now I’m glad to be back writing this tale again. Hope you continue to enjoy it!
