Human Strengths is now in the hands of my beta readers, so I will soon know if it's a steaming pile of crap or not. Hopefully not, but you never know. I might have had a bad hair month.
Early feedback is telling me exactly what my gut has been suggesting: that the two stories really want to be a novel. With that thought in mind, I've written up some new content for Human Frailties, mostly concerning Tor's background.
Once Human Strengths comes back from the beta readers, I'll be working to meld the two stories together into one long one. Expect at least 85,000 words, possibly more (my drafts seem to get longer with each edit pass). I'm still hoping to have it available on Smashwords by the end of the summer (that's officially September... right?).
