I have finally pushed the button and committed to a release date. The e-book is now available for pre-order and the printed book will not be far away. It can be ordered at http://milsf.com/msfibook and has about 270 pages when printed. Once this is done I will begin working on the next book in the series which details space ships and star fleets. I have already written quite a bit but more is needed and it needs to be organized.
Releasing it now is a good thing. My other option is to spend the next ten years improving it but never releasing it. Hopefully I will get information from readers on things I’ve missed, questions and more and I can make a Volume #2.
