Since a while I’ve been working on a historical naturist story. It’s going well (it’s not near the end yet) but I’m getting a decent feeling about where it’s going. For that reason I started working on a cover image already.
I want to share with you what I’ve come up with so far.
I’m not telling you the title yet. I’m mean like that.
First of all: a great, big thank you to everyone who appreciates the books I’ve written so far. I wouldn’t be able to write them without you. Believe me that your reading enthusiasm helps me in writing more books and hopefully better ones.
Here’s a little update on what’s going on in the writing arena.
My faithful editor has taken it upon himself to go over Naked Crow 6. He’s working on it so I can see where I messed up. Being the good man that he is he’s not laughing too hard at the mistakes.
Unfortunately I haven’t gotten any inspiration (read: good subject) to put into a possible Naked Crow 7. It can still happen but I make no predictions.
I’ve started writing Mirror Earth book 3. It took me a while to find the good points to put in there and I think I found them so I started on that.
I’m slowly making progress with the historical naturist fiction story I started long ago. It’s not an easy one to write; it requires research and thought. I hope it will pay off though.
That’s what’s going here at the writing desk of this author.
Please bear and bare with me for the next book to arrive. In a few weeks I’ll write something about the new Naked Crow book that’s being scrutinised at the moment. Things like the title, and perhaps even the cover image.
Believe it or not, but the book might be approaching it’s final pages. 170 of them have been written so far and I think it turned out to be a decent story.
This doesn’t mean the book will be out soon as there’s a round of editing to be done, and I haven’t put any work into the cover yet, but I thought sharing this little update is a nice thing to do for those who await this book.
I’m not sure yet if there will be a book 7. So far no ideas have popped up for it, so don’t count on anything about that yet. This doesn’t mean there won’t be one, it might just take a while.
On the other hand I’m working on a small side project, a rather wild science-fiction-like story that I intend to post on here. Yes, a story you would read for free. I am still figuring that out. Writing that story isn’t easy because I’m trying to come up with a completely new setting and several other strange things and concepts.
Yes! It’s out and ready for whoever has been waiting for it.
In this sequel to “Mirror Earth”, Elisabeth and Roger live happy lives on the other Earth. They are still adjusting, but there are many people around to help them along. Denise, Walter, Jane and Sarah are back on their home Earth. Due to what’s called the failure of the time-fluxer project things aren’t that great. The scientists go on because they have to. Unfortunately they only have each other to fall back on because Professor Holger has little love left for them. Everyone thinks the troubles with the time-fluxer are over. It’s time to think again.
It’s done, arranged, planned, stripped of any clothing that’s not needed.
I have a date for Mirror Earth Revisited. On November 23rd, 2016 of this year the e-book will become available at all the usual places. (I’m talking about Amazon.anywhere, Smashwords, Apple iTunes, Barnes&Noble and so on.)
Advance notice: start saving 299 pennies. I’ve priced this book the same as Mirror Earth, quite low, as to make it available to as many people as possible.
I know. I’m great like that. Don’t growl if your local outlet asks a little bit more. That is due to taxes and stuff and therefore out of my control. And wallet, unfortunately…
Since we’re all waiting for the new book (you for it to come out, me for the print proof) let me treat you to the back cover text!

I’m no longer going to keep you waiting. Until now I’ve managed to ‘sit’ on the cover for Mirror Earth Revisited but today’s the day I’m going to let you see it.
That’s what you’ll have to be happy with for now. I’m still working on getting the actual (e-)books created and looking decent. I hope to be ready for the e-book launch in a few weeks. The paperback demands more work and more waiting (once the files for that are okay I want to see a proof print which takes a while to get here) but that will come too. Promise.
At first I envisioned Mirror Earth as a one-off naturist science fiction, but more and more people talked about it, and more and more they asked if there would be a sequel. Then they asked when the sequel would come. Mind you, I still had no intention to write a sequel to it, even though the future world in Mirror Earth had some potential for that. And now it’s really happening.
How far is it?
The editing process on Mirror Earth 2 is going well and even the cover for the e-book’s done. I hope to have the book ready and out somewhere in December, at least the e-book. That would make for a nice Christmas present, wouldn’t it? (Paper books require a lot of extra work but I’ll try for that too.) Of course the book isn’t going to be titled “Mirror Earth 2”.
Okay, here is what you came here for:
Yes… Mirror Earth Revisited.
And another yes: that’s part of the cover you see here. Well, I’d better get back to work on it!
Last night I returned from a vacation to Lanzarote. It was nice, well deserved (I think) and very naturist as I was in the village of Charco del Palo.
During my vacation I did some serious writing and I’m glad to say that Naked Crow 6 is well underway. I didn’t just write, I also looked around and thought about things. Some of those thoughts might end up in Naked Crow 7. But that’s all chiseled in fleeting water for now.
