The planned release date was originally September, but with other projects and still holding down a job, it was then extended to 10th October.
However, I'm now finished and am in the process of final editing.
As this is a sequel to the first story, it fits in well at 84000 words compared to 'A New Dawn' at 105000. So all those hundreds who have downloaded New Dawn in the last eight weeks can now read an extension of the original story, set 25 years into the future.
Now I'm already working on book two in the series (A New Death being the sequel to book one). This is set in the USA where the outbreak occurred, and is the first of four in that country where community is harder to find, weapons are an expected right to possess and use, and so 'Origin2' is full of difficulty, violence and general mayhem until book four, set in the Dakota's.
