    Elite:Dangerous ". . .And here the Wheel" (NOVEL)

    Hi Everyone

    Thanks for everyone that supported my novel during its funding phase.

    Now the exciting phase starts. Writing. I would love to share this journey with you so I have set up a website: www.andherethewheel.co.nz where I will update with story information like characters and places and I plan to start a video diary as well.

    come on over and have a look!

    Thanks,

    John

    Hi John,

    I am normally very suspicious about those named after highly technologically advanced insectoid races - but how long do you plan on keeping the Supporter Rewards on your website open?

    @Michael

    I had been waiting for you to get in touch with 'writers instructions' but I can send through my synopsis to you. I'll get this done in the next day or so.

    @Crispy

    Thanks for the support mate. Stay tuned.

    @Ozoli

    The initial plan was to keep it open all the way through in the vain hope that we could look at funding an audiobook version of the story. I'll see how it pans out, but I do have a Plan B if needed.

    I have your site bookmarked. Now to decide what level to donate at...

    On the Elite: Dangerous Wiki, we have a Fiction page with a link to the website for the book.

    Hi everyone.

    Just a shout out to remind everyone that the website www.andherethewheel.co.nz is alive and kicking.

    I'm deep into the drafting of the story (nearly 30,000 words as of today) and I have been doing weekly summary posts as well as extra posts mid week. This weeks summary just went live.

    I just completed a competition to name a character. Dave Woods just won himself a free copy of the e-book for naming a character Leonardo Ramanujan. There are heaps of other characters and technologies to name so come over and subscribe so you can keep an eye on the action.

    Thanks to everyone for their support and if there is anything else you'd like to see me doing give me a shout out.

    Thanks,

    John

    Another day, another update ...

    Hi Guys

    Another update at www.andherethewheel.co.nz. Not a progress report this time, but a review of my own Elite fan fiction, starting from the hazy days of early school life upward.

    My character Vasquith deHavilland got up to all kinds of crazy business in the days of writing fan fiction (unlike the official fiction I am writing now) and if you like adventures in space and you like First Encounters you'll love it.

    Cheers

    John

    Thanks for the support, mate. I really appreciate it.

    There are quite a few books isn't there? I think 14 writers packs in total went, including the three to Gollancz.

    Great update John, I agree that writing is something you never stop learning and it's great for those of us who skipped the frontier titles to get a look in to how the fan fiction has developed over the years.

    not had a look at the HPA stories yet as I have a massive elite related reading list to get through but they are bookmarked and looked forward to.

    Write on Commander
