Free Planet¹ CUSTODIAN

custodian final cover
free planet¹ CUSTODIAN third draft complete:- 
novel available soon in Kindle and Paperback format.

as this first Free Planet novel was about three years in the research and a couple years in the writing/rewriting, the start of the book and the end of the book needed 'stylistically welding'.

I've edited, reworked and tightened up the opening chapters and gone through the rest of the opening part of the book so that it ties together better with the attitude, speed and style of the latter part of the book. I got rid of the introduction which, while being a nice rant about the education system that I'd rewritten kinda like about eight times, just got in the way of the real narrative.

Also, a very good friend of mine (editor and writer) will be going over it with a fine-tooth comb for one final line-edit. And there's a new cover design incorporating the power numbers into the free planet subtitle. After much internal debate, I left this message on the dedication page...

dedicated to all our children's children (should such a thing as a Free Planet ever come about) that generation of people i.e. the children of today's children, will probably be the first to understand 'then' what we did or are trying to do for them 'now' and be able to deal with the crucial and life-enhancing chaaanges that they'll need to incorporate into their lives.
