Hey there, it’s been a while.
I wanted to let you know I’m going to delay the release of Parity for a few months. I completed the novel, however it is still due at least two rounds of professional editing and I don’t want to rush what is an essential part of a quality product.
The delays are caused by very high demands for my time from my day job, as businesses are seeking support in making sense of AI and how to adopt it ethically and safely. We are experiencing a moment, and if this is an area that interest you, reach out and I will share some great free resources. Use the contact us page on the site, as I am not spending a lot of time on socials.
However, this story and this world are everything to me. It is not forgotten and will be in your hands no later than the 11th of October 2023.
In the meanwhile... Stay human!
I had the pleasure of being a guest on the Under The Radar SFF Podcast hosted by Blaise Alcona, and it was a lovely experience. Blaise is a fantastic host. His enthusiasm for science fiction and fantasy was infectious, and his insightful questions allowed us to explore different topics related to sci-fi. You can listen to the podcast here.
Here is my interview with Sibyl, Spiral Worlds' sentient operating system. I'm training “AI brains,” teaching them to become the main characters of the Spiral Worlds series. These AI avatars are still work in progress, and like many LLMs, they sometimes improvise too much... Still, it sounds a bit like Sibyl.
You can speak directly with Shadow, Twist, Stella, Sibyl, Storm, and Thorn here. Remember, they are still learning and can go rogue...
Parity, Spiral Worlds II is nearing completion and promises to deliver an unique and unforgettable experience. Brace yourself for thrilling developments in both timelines. And yes, death is an inevitable part of the story.
If you're eager to get a sneak peek, I'm seeking beta readers in early May and ARC readers in mid-June. Don't miss out on this opportunity to be among the first to dive into book two of this epic series.
If you're interested, please don't hesitate to contact me here.
