I was writing the battle scene in Longview 4: The Vipers’ Nest, and I thought things were getting a little away from me.
And all of a sudden Herog had a revelation about the battle he was fighting that told me three things:
- How a tiny space station in an out-of-the-way corner of its galaxy becomes a genuine power to be reckoned with
- Where the City of Furies fits in my space map (I truly had no idea until about two minutes ago)
- And what happens to the Pact Worlds Alliance.
Damn, damn, DAMN, today was a fantastic writing day, and if I started an hour early ran an hour over, I couldn’t help it. I had to know what happened, and the space battle got real on me, and BOY was it ever worth it.
So if you like the story when you read it, thank these guys, and the folks who joined my Patreon this month and who will start showing up in the credits next month, because without these guys I’d still be wishing I was writing fiction every day:
Paula C Meengs
Mary E. Merrell
Paul Williams (moley)
Alex G. Zarate
Thea van Diepen
P.S. Have to make new covers for the whole series, but this is the provisional one I had on hand.
