I've just finished the creative stage of my second Sector Storm novel! I feel it's a strong second book for the series and it makes me eager to get to the third one! Not only is it more exciting than the first book, but it also has more humour to it. That's not to say it isn't dark and edgy; just less bogged down in technical and backstory detail. It kicks off with adventure and just builds and builds with tension as circumstances become increasingly more disastrous for the crew.
In the past I mentioned a free Sector Storm Companion, with glossaries and character illustrations, and this is something I'm still interested in doing. I already have the tech, term, race and character glossaries, which I've frequently turned to while writing these books. It's just a matter of drawing the images the way I want them presented, and finding a good scanner.
