First off, let me just say thank you to everybody for reading Oasis. And of course for your astute typo catching.
I knew the ending would not be everyone’s cup of tea, but hey, what book ending is? For me, it kept in with the pulpy flavor that I’ve wanted Oasis to have. After all, Oasis was inspired by my favorite pulp authors: Edgar Rice Burroughs (Tarzan/John Cater Of Mars), Robert E. Howard (Conan) and Kenneth Robinson (Doc Savage)
I’ll be sending emails to a few of you to see if you’ll let me use your comment on the Oasis web site.
So what’s next for Oasis?
It’s pretty simple. I’m going to go through and clean up some of those pesky typos. I’m going to make some minor edits to the story, nothing major, I just want some parts to flow a little easier. There’s a chapter I think I’d like in the first third of the book. After that – I’m seeking publication. If I can’t get a publisher fairly quickly, I’ll be self-publishing via CreateSpace.com. In any case, my goal is to make sure by the end of the year you can all hold a beautifully printed copy in your hands.
By the way, If I end up self publishing, here’s what the cover will probably look like.
So what’s next for StoryHack?
In the meantime, the fiction here will not stop. First up, you’ll see a piece of the first novel I attempted to write. After that, I’ve got a couple of short stories that I need to get out of my system. Then who knows? Perhaps more serial novel goodness.
