As some of you know, I'm working on a PhD thesis at the moment - hence my relative lack of activity lately.

On Friday, I submitted my first draft; after five years, the thesis is coming to an end.  I'm not there just yet, but I'm already thinking about what's ahead.

One certainty is that I'm going to plough a lot more time and effort into getting my sci-fi project off the ground.  The first two novels have been coming along very well prior to being paused for me to finish the thesis.  Now that's going to be increasingly out of the way, I'm hoping to get them finished before too long.  And then... we'll see.  I have other projects lined up for the sci-fi which I'm looking forward to pursuing as well.  One of these is an episodic serial.

What's clear to me is that this sci-fi project is going to be... rather large.  The setting has turned out to be much bigger than I anticipated when I started work on it.  It's going to take time to explore properly.  And if nothing else, it's going to need a name.

So as of right now, it's the Diaspora Series.

I'm looking forward to seeing what people make of it. :)

Hey, thanks for the fave! :-)

BTW, good luck with your PhD thesis - the thesis I did for my MBA eventually became a chore; my course tutor warned that it would, but all the same, I was unprepared for what a ball-ache it became!

Hope that your efforts are rewarded! :-)
