Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away, I wrote a novel called Pandora’s Brain.
I’ve just finished the sequel, Pandora’s Oracle, and review copies are available – free, gratis, and for nothing. Let me know if you would like a copy – PDF, or a MOBI file for your Kindle.
Pandora’s Brain was published in 2014. I wrote the first draft of a sequel the following year, but I wasn’t happy with it, so it sat alone inside a computer, un-read and un-loved. I went on to write a series of non-fiction books about AI. I decided I was probably a writer of non-fiction, and not of fiction.
About a year ago I was introduced to a writing coach. He was enormously helpful. He showed me how to structure a novel, and then worked with me painstakingly, chapter by chapter, line by line, as I completely re-wrote the book.
I think Pandora’s Oracle is now pretty damn good. I hope you will too. Pandora’s Oracle is a sequel to Pandora’s Brain, but it works as a stand-alone novel. You don’t have to read Pandora’s Brain first. (Although if you haven’t, I hope you will.)
