This was my first serious attempt at novel writing and runs at about 110,000 words. I buckled down and got serious about it writing every day for thirty weeks straight. I submitted it to the BBC but before I got a response they announced that the new series was coming back and they were closing the range. I'll never ever know if it could have been accepted or not. I'm very proud of it and know that the Starpoint Mountain series could not have been written had I not done this one first.
This was the original cover using the artwork from Robert Heinlien's book Friday. Strangely enough people didn't think twice about Doctor Who fanfic but kept talking about the Heinlien art so I changed it to something more Who.
