My plan is to put Book number 1 up on this website for download – f.o.c. – before the end of the year 2014. I promised the Asimov lawyers I would neither try to sell nor publish the book, therefore Foundation and Second Empire will, from now on, be considered a fan fiction novel. I will put the book up in two formats: epub for iPad and mobi for Kindle.
Except for an edit/rewrite of chapter 6, I have not worked on this book since July 2014. That was when I received the cease and desist order from the Asimov Estate. I have worked on another (non-Foundation) book periodically over the last year, but have decided to return to the Final Foundation trilogy and see it through to the end. I will use December 2014 to get this website up and January 2015 to re-read where I’m at. I’ll begin writing again in February.
The book has the working title Robots of the Interregnum and is set in FE 999. Please understand, I am not able to be a full-time writer. I have a day job that needs seeing to, plus all the usual things that fill up a person’s life. Sometimes the progress will be slow, and sometimes there will be no progress at all. Eventually I will finish this book and put it up on this website, f.o.c. Naturally I want the book to be something I am proud of, and something you enjoy reading. By the time I pick up this book again, I will have lost seven months. I apologize for this, but I really was in doubt about whether or not I should proceed.
Book 3 has the (very) tentative working title Beyond Foundation. It is set in the future.
