The Abyss Beyond Dreams (first draft) came in at 198,000 words.
That now spends next week getting kicked into shape. Then editors read and make notes. Then I argue editorial changes. Then I rewrite. Editor read through. Last small scale changes incorporated. Then it gets copy edited. My last read through. Proofed. Printed. And oh look, it's October already.

Reason why it's been quiet round here lately: Deadline -coming in fast over the horizon. To quote the late great Douglas Adams: I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.
Reason why I don't tweet, number 879. Shockingly, I wouldn't be as good as James Blunt.

Sneak peek. For people who haven't got the American mass market edition of Great North Road (see entry below). Mark Chitty has put up the first few pages of The Abyss Beyond Dreams on the unisphere website. This is writing in its raw form, that is: unedited, so who knows what version will make it into the final book (what am I saying? it should all make it). And if you liked it, well you only have 9/10 months to wait. Yes, I am that cruel in real life.

So… another year over, and what have I done? Well, as of last night, I've managed to get 4/5 of the next Commonwealth Universe book written. Watched a lot of under 11 girls hockey matches -go Sophie. Stood up more on my surfboard. Celebrated 20 years of being a published author (note to self, must get plan B ready: line up a proper job for when I stop daydreaming and grow up). Visited Switzerland for the first time. Raised money for a good cause. Saw some decent films, and also took Felix to Smurfs2. Did a reasonable amount of jogging. Yeah, that'll do.
Some people (such as "Dave" in the guestbook) noticed that Pandora's star was pulled from Audible, and wondered why this happened. It turns out that there have been some complaints about the sound quality of that recording. For that reason, the book was temporarily removed from the Audible store until the engineers have fixed this.
If you are a Twitter user, you can now follow us: @PeterFHamilton1. For the time being, only the items from this news page will be Tweeted, but we hope to add more stuff in the future.
