Why I wrote Android Hunters

Android Hunters

Available on Kindle, Play Books, Nook, Kobo, and iBooks.

Why write the start of a massive space opera epic? Why not start with an easy to digest lone wolf book that can be finished during a nice day at the beach?

The answers to those are easy; because I fell in love with this story.

True fact: Android Hunters isn’t the first version I wrote of the story.

I whole heartedly blame Kindle recommendations/countdown deals for inflicting more financial wallet pain.

The first version of Android Hunters came about after I finished reading Revelation Space for the third of fourth time. Such a great book. Alastair Reynolds is a sci-fi treasure. The first version of Android Hunters, the first book in The Corli Saga, was rubbish to tell the truth. It read exactly like a person who didn’t take writing seriously, who thought it was easy to put words down on a page. Oh boy, did I learn the hard truth about that in a hurry. Sure it’s easy to put words on a page, anyone can do that, but it’s not so easy to put words on a page in a way that makes people want to read past the second word. However, the idea was there.

This whole story is a blender baby of many sci fi things I like! One part Crazy AI god, a loveable team of special ops characters that reminded me of the early days of Honor Harrington meets Joel Shepherds “Cassandra Kresnov” books. Please note I am extremely bias to cyberpunk, androids and anything Bladerunner infused. So this whole setup was my cup of Joe.
