Published: New Beta of Rolling Rocks Downhill.
I've just uploaded the 2nd Beta version of Rolling Rocks Downhill, my biztech novel.
So what's new? Well, just like the latest iPad, it's 25% thinner (I reduced the word count, without sacrificing content, from 100k words to 75k). The plot is firm and the previously thin characters are now 50% less-thin! It's a whole lot easier to read, though it still needs to go through a proper copy-editting process before it gets published proper. It is still riddled with spealling mistaeks, but that's coz it's a beta and (if you haven't noticed) I'm crap at spelling.
Oh, and it still ends on a cliff-hanger, at the end of the 2nd act. The 3rd act contains new knowledge for a most Agile (and other) folk, but the beta stands on its own, without the third act. And that's what's got me all conflicted: the third act could easily be either the last act of this book or the first act of "Rolling More Rocks Downhill". I'm wondering if I should practice what I preach ...
