Both Roberta and I are working on books.
Roberta’s is non-fiction, and still a couple of years away.
My book is fictional, although based around an extrapolation of factual events. I don’t want to say anything about it yet, because it’s still at least a year or two away, but it’s meant to be a mainstream novel. It has nothing to do with boats, and plenty to do with cool new technology. Hopefully everyone will like it when I finally complete it.
Writing books isn’t nearly as fun as writing games. Both Roberta and I would enjoy working on a game, but it’s more important for us to do new things. We like going places we haven’t been and taking on new challenges. We wrote games for 20 years, and now its time for something new. Besides, it would be impossible for us to ‘sit still’ the 3+ years required to work on a game. The nice thing about working on a book is that you can do it from anywhere in the world.
