    Rybok (For Publication)

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Raven, Feb 11, 2008.

    Great news all.

    My creation of Rybok will be hitting publication.

    A publishing company known as Orbit have accepted my synopsis of a story involving Rybok and 12 convicts. The story is of course as many of you know set way in the future.

    Orbit has granted me a deal to publish one book which will be released in paperback. Should the book sell a certain amount of copies they will allow a sequel book.

    I've already began writing the story. It will not feature anything seen on the forum for obvious reasons. The deadline for completion is July no later.

    So as you can imagine I am very much over the moon and extremely happy my continuous writing has finally paid off.

    I certainly hope you'll all be buying a copy. ;) hint, hint. :D

    Raven that is most wonderful to hear my good friend. I am so very glad that you have taken the next step with your writing.

    That really is wonderful. I can't wait to hear when it is published so I can order a copy. Keep us informed on how it goes :)

    And by the way, how many copies have to be sold so that they allow you to publish a sequel?

    Congrats, that's excellent news. Hopefully someday soon I'll walk down into the nearest bookstore and find Rybok on the New Release stand. ;)
