Book 6 Draft is… Complete!
Welcome to another week!
As you read this we will have completed the first draft of book (Beachhead). Yes! You heard it here first. Book 5 (Counterpunch) is currently winging its way out to our First Readers team (the intrepid group of awesome people who have volunteered to beta read for us). You know who you are and we cannot thank you enough!

In addition, we are most of the way through a rewrite of the story that originally introduced us to Stanley (for those of you who have not read the ZPA series yet, Stanley is a hairy character who appears in book 3). There is also another story which will shed some light on a period of Arthur’s life coming (not fully baked yet, but it won’t be long). We are thinking about putting these stories into a compilation. More on that when we get there. 

We were really pleased with the response we received to the idea of us trying our hand at a space opera. We do have a draft of something that we are working on, but there is a lot more to go on that yet before it will be ready for the light of day. So let’s just say that this is a work in progress and leave it at that (yeah, we have a lot of those…).

In non-writing news, when we are not writing (or working a day job) we are spending more time on our discord server for writers (The INKubator). If you are a writer or a poet, or would like to be, feel free to drop by and say hi. It’s a group of great people and you will be most welcome.

Other than that, we are full steam ahead on the writing and now the editing of book 6. There is a lot to do yet to get it ready, so watch this space for updates.

That’s it for the opening. We have a lot going on in this week’s newsletter, including what we found on the internet this week (seriously weird stuff), a contest, a review of the winners from last week’s contest and our survey for the week. We love all your responses so please keep them coming!

We had more than either of us had time to respond to last week (sorry!) but we read every single one (with a lot of giggles).We also have some great stories to introduce to you from other authors as well as a promo you won’t want to miss.Please keep reading everyone and we will keep writing!
