I started writing FUTURE PERFECT in January of 2007, with the plan of setting the story in our “present day” and its immediate future (2007-2025). It’s by nature predictive, and the longer it took me to write, the more I kept bumping up against current reality–and finding many of my predictions coming true. I was constantly “chasing the present”, with the pressure to publish before my “prophecies” became history. The e-book’s publication was a huge relief, but I still felt a need (more like a creeping sense of foreboding) to get it into unalterable print before the wave function collapsed and my little book of fiction resembled more of reality than I bargained for. [This time-sensitivity was one of those “Is Self Publishing Right For You?” examples.] Also, I know many of you prefer to hold & read the actual paper book rather than a device (I’m one of those people, too).
So it’s with great relief, pride, gratitude, and hope, that I can announce that the print version of FP is now a click away, on https://www.createspace.com/3931991. By this time next week it will be listed on Amazon.com.
Thanks to all of you who’ve offered praise, helpful hints, and support. It’s been an incredible experience. Now….to the sequel!
