I had to get this book out before the Comet, covering millions of miles a day, got ahead of me.

I started working on it on December 29, 2012, when Deanna forwarded an e-mail from one of her cousins about the comet. That e-mail just had a link. And, as soon as I read the newspaper article about it (per that link), in the British ‘The Independent’, I knew I had to write about this comet. I felt it was destined in my stars — as they would say in Sri Lanka. I had been working for over a year on a book on asteroids. So the transition was pretty easy. I was working on that book when I got the e-mail. I just saved that book. Opened a new copy of it, and used it as the template for the new book. Yes, I started writing that day itself. I don’t mess around.

I finished the text of the book on March 29, 2013. So exactly 3 months to write 50,000(+) words — and I had the 5 weeks of craziness with the papal transition, during which I did publish 3 other Kindle eBooks.

So, yes, this is my 4th book in 2013. I did three books in 2011 and was getting worried that I would never equal that again.

Lot more yet to be done.

Yes, a companion blog, ‘Comet ISON‘, went live just now! What can I say. I was in sales and marketing for better part of my life. But, today was stressful.

    Appears you have a reasonable ability to multi-task. There are a few that find this ability fleeting. Although I only have minimal interest in astronomy I always admire those who can think out of the big bang box.
