Of course, the first book is now finished and the story has a more solid foundation to build upon, and my feeling for this fictional world has evolved as well.
The original notes called for a main character who is a young female scientist sent to study some of the mysteries of Arcturus. The newer version does not include her, but has more alien characters.
I want to avoid having too many central characters, but I am temped to bring this young lady back into the story as a secondary character. The main protagonists shall be Sam Benjamin, who was briefly introduced in episode #11 (Lonely Lynda), and Pazi, the alien translator who was seen but not named in episode #44 (Matriarch's Lawyer).
The paperback and kindle versions have had some sales, but I'm no marketing expert, so it's getting a slow start. Fans of the podcast can help by posting reviews on Amazon, and by 'liking' the book on Facebook.
It's been an interesting year for me, with lots of changes...some good and some otherwise. I will be taking a short break from my routine until January and doing a bit of traveling, but I will have my trusty notebook and pen with me to capture any inspiration that appears.
