Hi APK,

Yes, I am a regular member of the KSP Spec Fic Writer's group in Mundaring, Western Australia. They have spawned quite a few well-published authors in time and have some exceptional talent. I traded many crits with other writers during the writing process.

When I started out writing, I thought it was a case of finish the book and someone will want it. After speaking to many writers I learned the harsh truth about how difficult it is to find a publisher or agent.

If Turing Evolved is successful, perhaps it will make it a little easier to find one. Or maybe not? I would very much like to see it in print, but I realized when I self-published that it will probably never become a p-book.

I am still hopeful that word will spread, others will try it and more will talk of it. I guess I'm trying the writer's equivalent of publishing a song on youtube and at least I get the satisfaction of knowing others are enjoying my work. It's better than the story living and dying in the seldom-read slushpiles of publishing houses that are looking for something less original. Sometimes it appears in the strangest of places, tech forums and the like, bringing a new wave of readers, and a new wave of satisfaction at the response.

It makes the effort of writing it worthwhile

Regards,
David
