Ah the blog. How I have neglected thee. The good news is I’ve been focussing on getting this second novel completed, the sequel to The Sequence. One of the many nice things about self-publishing…no deadlines. Nevertheless, it is TIME TO DO THE WORK. Speaking of work, I am one of two-hundred and eighty other authors with books currently being judged in the second running of the SPSFC! Officially SPSFC2. That’s the Self-Published Science Fiction Competition. I’m a little concerned that judges are currently only reading the first 20% of books and thinning the herd as such based on that. The Sequence has a slow start, but as the action begins, it relentlessly accelerates towards the climax, keeping the reader glued to the page after page after…you get the idea. Hopefully they read this and I can convince them that 50% would give them a much better idea of my writing style.
Here’s a link, and you can find them on social #spsfc2.
In addition! I made the Long List over at The CYGNUS Awards, they’ll be choosing the Short List from our group of 38 pretty soon so watch this space for any further information.
In October I’m going to be doing a series of short readings of The Sequence on Reels on my instagram account. If this is the sort of thing that interests you, go on over to @lucientelford and rummage away. If I’m feeling confident with it, I may include some teaser readings from future books.
Wish me luck!
