Hope you are enjoying that popcorn
Hey everyone, I miss writing to you and the broadcasting will be back with Chapter 6 | School Balls commentary next Sunday, May 30th as promised. Paul and I have some big plans for the Gumpcast upcoming episodes as well, with Ep.06 Bullies premiering on Sunday, June 6th!
I enjoyed taking some time off in the past 2 weeks to continue working on the book and I am excited to share that it is coming together nicely! I am almost done with the first draft of chapters 12-21 which has a US Navy backdrop and features a most historic battleship which Maskat will take for the ride of his life. Shhhhh! Don’t tell anyone!
I appreciate all the time you have given me for 1-on-1 reviews of what you liked about the book, but I also welcome feedback on the commentary and the podcasts.
I totally get that most of you did not have time to explore all the content, so feel free to give me feedback on any of the following depending on what engaged you the most so far:
The commentary posts: Do you like them? Are they too long?
The podcast: What do you think of the length and the content? I have exciting plans for it so the feedback is much needed
The novel itself: Is there any character that you feel confused about or want to know more about? Who do you relate to the most? What do you think of the time (the eighties) and place (Lamu Island), are they clear enough?
Also, substack as a platform, are you able to find things on it easily?
Feel free to email me back, message me, or leave a comment on this thread so that others can react to it.
Thanks for joining the journey,
