Blog Hop – Work in progress

I was very kindly tagged by Joanne Hall ( to take part in a blog hop about my work in progress. It is… well, in progress, so things may (and most likely will) change. It’s my first serious attempt at a novel and I work out certain things as I go.


  1. What is the name of your main character? Is he/she fictional or historic person?
    His name is Alexander Cook and he is a fictional character.
  2. When and where is the story set?
    Distant future (circa 25o years) and further. It is set in the Sphere universe, which was created for the role play game of the same title. The story will take place on and around Earth and few other locations in the Milky Way.
  3. What should we know about him/her?
    He is a former diplomat, who witnesses the start of genocidal war between humans and gefydds and effectively… but that would be too much of a spoiler.
  4. What is the main conflict? What messes up his/her life?
    The main conflict is the war between humanity and the geffyd empire.
  5. What is the personal goal of the character?
    Survival. Predominantly his own and as many other humans as possible. Revenge as well, after a fashion.
  6. Is there a working title for this novel and can we read more about it?
    No working title thus far, but any suggestions are welcome.
  7. When can we expect the book to be published?
    No idea. The plan is to complete the draft before winter. Then, all depends if anyone becomes interested in publishing and how long the many edits will take.

I realise that above is very limited in terms of information and there is much more to the story, but hence I’m working on the development of the game simultaneously, certain things must remain hidden. At least for now.

The time has come to invite some more people to join:
