“both of you”? I suspect there are many more than 2 people watching this.

Looks great and I look forward to the rest being published too.

How can I wait for the full novel while others are reading it? En, unless you include this first part in the Fallout Shelter USB Drive. :D Will you at least consider this idea?

Really? Then it will be a great news for us who ordered the USB drives month ago! (of course the stolen part is not)

I applaud your honesty with readers to just wait, although looks like many are having a hard time doing so. :) Still, eBook sales seem to be about 100 times those of the print book. Glad to see you’re following through with those pricing ideas, too.

Man, I’m glad I didn’t know you were doing this — the agonizing pressure of not seeing the printed book until you unbox really would have ruined my day. What if I’d gotten the dimensions wrong, and you pulled out a book with a pure white cover and a tiny little thumbnail of my design centered across the spine?

I’m glad they turned out great. The matte finish really looks striking, especially when you compare it to the glossy one on-camera!

Hey Hugh

Just bought and read Part 1….really intrigued with how the story will unfold in subsequent part.

Quick question – as I’ve done a bit of googling with little success – is there a post anywhere where you detail your writing process?


I don’t know that it’s in any one place. A scattering of questions over a lot of interviews. My writing process is so boring. I just sit down and make stuff up. Not sure there’s any real formula or steps involved.

Yeah, I had to bite at Part I as soon as it was available so I’ve got some sand between my teeth now. You squeezed a lot of character and story into that short first installment and I’m looking forward to the rest of the ride. It’s off to a very impressive start.

Keep the installments coming and best of luck with it.
