Dark Suns, drafted

I’ve finished the first draft of the novel of Dark Suns, the YA space mystery which I’ve been describing as ‘Lord of the Flies meets Silent Running meets The Midwich Cuckoos‘. Right now, I don’t believe it lives up to those comparisons; in fact, I hate it. This is quite normal, and I’ve said it before about previous books at the end-of-first-draft stage, although I never thought, when I set out to write a YA novel, that it would be quite so hard. And it certainly lives up to the ‘dark’ part of the title.
