Well, now that the Biden Era has begun (at least on a political level) I’m going to throw myself into the novel. I hope to finish a really strong first draft no later than, say, my birthday. I’m going to read, write and develop as fast as I can to wrap up the first book of the two book story very, very quickly.
The concept is really strong. And, at this point, my two fears are that there may be a coup on the part of House Trump and the context of the story will be so dramatically different by the time it comes out that it might seem dated.
And, yet, the story itself is so strong that I feel confident it it’s Trump Era elements — which were all structural and subtext in nature — won’t feel too dated. You can honestly read the novel as just a good story. It’s not meant to be preachy.
Just a pulpy, fast read.
So, we’ll see.
