Turning Point rewrite news

Well folks it looks as if I have no option but to self publish my science fiction story “Turning Point” given the intractable stance taken by my publisher. I won’t go into what has forced me into self publishing except to say that despite their own rules, the approach they take is baffling to say the least. And so, it now falls upon me to scrutinise every word, every peace of punctuation to the nth degree, as I’m sure those of you who are already self published will fully appreciate.

In a way it is an immense relief. Once again I am in control of my own destiny. If “Turning Point”, which is the predecessor to my previously published science fiction space opera “Onet’s Tale” sells, I will be content.

In the end that’s what the writing game is all about to me – contentment. Plus the fact that others are sufficiently curious enough to want to read the end product of my humble efforts is a very definite plus.

In the meantime, while I wait patiently for three good friends and published fellow writers to beta read TP, I continue editing. I shall probably still be editing right up until the point when the ‘publish’ button is hit. 

More later…

  1. I'm glad you are at peace with your decision to self-publish. I hope you find even greater success and joy with it. Self-publishing is what I decided to do. I never even bothered submitting to literary agents. I don't like the idea of not having control though. Can't wait to read your stuff.


  2. Thanks Andrea, Its really nice to know that other people feel the same way. Having taken the decision after much agonising on my part, despite everything, at least I know now that when I have a story ready to publish, it will happen, rather than simply moulder away for a year or more. 🙂
