I’ve been working on the Infinite Timeline for so long that it feels a bit surreal that it’s coming to a close. There’s a sense of relief that I pulled it off, but now it’s release day and I’m feeling a bit squirrely as I await the public’s response. If you’ve read the whole Timeline and love Singularity, please spread the word, not just about this book, but the whole Timeline! I’d love for the concept of a world of books to catch on, but it can’t do that without you, {First Name}. That’s right, I just called you out by name. So post the book’s images, the trailer (below), the banner above, or just share this whole dang e-mail. Let’s make the world notice (or at least the rest of Craig Alanson’s fans)!

What kind of person decides to create an overlapping universe of interconnected books that culminate in four massive crossovers novels?

It’s sometimes hard to keep track of a handful of characters. Singularity has how many main characters in one story? I haven’t even bothered counting, but the number doesn’t compare to the level of continuity to keep track of, pull together, and make gel. It was daunting, and incredibly fun. As I got to know the characters, I became fond of spending time with them, and watching how they interacted and got along. Hopefully, you’ll have the same familial feeling that I do with all of these characters when you’re done reading Singularity. If you’ve been waiting for this book to come out, you might have already skipped past all this, so I’ll cut my thoughts short here and get to the good stuff!
