WoR debut

My debut novel, Waves of Reprisal, has hit many ebook distribution sites. I enjoyed working on the adventure over the past year. The experience of writing an entire novel enlightened me in many ways. Many preconceptions I had about the process – elements I would have thought difficult or easy – were shattered. Overall I am proud with my first attempt, and am already criticizing how I could have improved it. But, as da Vinci would say: “Art is never finished, only abandoned.”

The story within the pages of Waves of Reprisal was initially conceived through a recurring vivid dream, then percolated for many years in my imagination as bits and pieces were added. Finally, as more ideas for stories filled my head, threatening to push the older ones out, I mustered the drive to outline and conceive one of those ideas into a fully realized novel. Now that I know I have it in me, I hope to develop many of my other outlandish sci-fi premises into book form. You can check out the Forthcoming section to see where I’m headed next.

Thanks to those who supported me throughout the entire process. Most notably I have my editor Keith Morrill and my cover artists Howard David Johnson & Keith Draws to thank. They assisted me in ensuring Waves of Reprisal was equipped for the ebook marketplace. I highly recommend their freelance services to any budding author.

About Malcolm Little

A native of British Columbia, my interests are diverse: Working with information technologies, pursuing a second degree in applied geography, and delving into character-driven stories. My multifaceted life experiences are evident in the stories Iwrite, where balancing the hard and the soft sides of the genre are of utmost importance. My first published novel, "Waves of Reprisal", is hopefully the first of many to come. Indeed, ideas for both stand-alone and series science fiction have gestated inside my consciousness for many years. It's time to let fingers crystallize those ideas into prose and dialogue. Recently my writing skills have extended into the realm of peer-reviewed scholarly articles, with published works appearing in Nature and Canadian Geographic. From time to time I might share interesting tidbits from my ongoing research.
