A Rambling Update – February 2018

I was going to call this “State of the Rambler” but damn if that joke hasn’t been run into the ground already.

Those of you that frequent the reddit sub may have already read the news but I’m posting it here as well.

I am going to pursue the publishing of Hyperion as a real, honest-to-goodness book.

Unfortunately this means I will have to press pause of posting the chapters of Hyperion as I have been doing.

This does not mean I will disappear or stop doing anything with Hyperion, it just means it won’t be the story proper to retain a chance at actual publishing. I will also be bringing out new stories (I know, boo hiss) for your reading pleasure.

Some of you have been along for this ride for quite some time and I know it might be disappointing, I hope it’s not too much so.

Because I am an open book (ha!) I will tell you that I plan on pursuing a traditional publishing route for a period of time and then I will self-publish it, I will not hold the story hostage should the traditional route be closed to me. It is as much your story as it is mine and I will not keep it from you forever.

This journey of Hyperion has been absolutely phenomenal for me and it will continue, until the day it is a real book if I have to self-publish or someone is willing to give me the shot.

If anyone here is interested in beta reading, please post a comment with your interest!

To all of you that have come along so far, I hope you’ll stick with it for a little longer and as always, thank you for reading!

  1. I am so buying that book once it is out. I cannot believe that stumbling upon a random writing prompt on reddit ends with me buying a book. Also I would love to be a Beta reader should that be an option. Keep up the spectacular work,


  2. I would love to beta read. Waiting and reading the newest Hyperion chapter has become a part of my daily love. I’d be honoured to help in anyway possible.


  3. I came here for the new Hyperion update, but am not disappointed! That’s awesome news, and I’m looking forward to the release of an actual book! Do keep us posted 🙂


      1. I would love to beta read as well. I’m loving everything I’ve read so far, and I’m totally hooked to the storyline. If it helps you, count me in.


  4. So many mixed feelings! I don’t want it to end but it so deserves to be a book and it’d be fantastic for you too! I’d love to be a beta-reader for you, I’ve been reading since the very beginning and I’ve been obsessed, it’d be an honour.


  5. I’ve been following your story for quite sometime now Mr Rambler and even though I’ve always been in the shadows on reddit, I definitely need to come out on this one and express my need to be a beta reader!

    Do keep up the good work and I really hope your book gets published!


  6. I will buy the book as soon as it comes out, that’s for sure! I’ve loved your story since the beginning, so I’m thrilled to see it as a proper book! I honestly can’t wait ahah
    Good luck for your work! Let us know how it goes!


  7. Saw your update on reddit and was disappointed I wouldn’t get more of this story weekly, but excited to hold a paperback copy of Hyperion in the future!
    If you’re still looking, I’d love to beta read your story.
    Let us know when you get published. Also, hoping you’ll be releasing on a platform I can buy from Australia?


  8. Found this through /r/writingprompts this morning, and I’m definitely hooked! I hope the publishing of this incredible story goes well, you deserve it. Of course I’d love to read anything you release, so beta reader would be incredible!


    1. This has to be the most excited I’ve been for a book in a LONG time. Who would’ve thought browsing the subreddit would lead to this?

  10. Been here since the start, thank you for all your effort. May this new adventure be as rewarding as the one you brought us all along for. Many thanks 😀


  11. I have been on board since the 3rd time you posted and I have always knew this would be epic, but never would I have guessed it would become a real book. Of course I will buy (hardcover) as soon as it is out, wherever it is out. And I would truly appreciate the honor of being a beta reader. Keep on doing great!
