Colliding Empires: A Chosen Path Almost Complete

I should have the second Colliding Empires short story complete in the next week. I have one more section left to write and then I'll begin the editing process. This will be the 2nd of 10 stories in the series. Life has been beating me up pretty well on this story. It has taken me far longer to write this one than many of my other short stories.

I believe after this series is complete, I'll be focusing on the Chronicles of a Rock Troll series of shorts and begin working on novels again. As for now, the Draconus Prophecies novel is on hiatus until I decide what to do with it. I haven't had much luck with Small Presses, and I'm not sure if I want to self publish it without going through an editor of some kind.

I would like to look at other possibilities for novels as well. I have many novels in the brainstorming phase and a few in the pre-brainstorming phase that I believe have the potential to becoming a high quality novel. I'm going to see if my writing group (which I need to meet with) to see if they want to have a brainstorming meeting instead of critiquing session. Anyway, that is my update for the time being. My posts haven't been very regular as of late, but I will be doing my best to get back on schedule.

Gathering Steam

Hello everyone! Not much of an update today. I've gotten a few hundred words written, probably about a hundred or a little less in the Colliding Empires. I've gotten a few paragraphs written on a possible scifi novel and a novella that I had been working on.

I've been listening to Nathan Lowell's TRADER TALES. I always come back to this series. I love Ishmael's voice in that series, and I'm really looking forward to the next installment SEEKERS and another branch in that universe SMUGGLERS. I've taken a break to listening to Steven Erikson's Malazan books and have gone back to some podcasts:  The Dead Robots' Society, StarTalk Radio, Android Central, and Magic the Amateuring.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and ...

Until the morrow and may your journey be meaningful!

The Call of Fate now Available for PreOrder

My new short story The Call of Fate is available for preorder.  Here is a short excerpt:

Wogan Nance, more commonly referred to as Boot Chuck by his squad, looked out over the sprawling camp of the army. Tents were lined up orderly in rows for as far as the eye could see. Soldiers milled around cook fires, sharpened swords, and fletched arrows, mostly staying close to their own squad's compound of tents and supplies. He wondered how many soldiers were like himself, hiding their true nature to keep from being used up in short order. He wondered how many secret mages, or at least those with the ability to become mages lurked in midst of the throng of these men and women.

Mages were a hot commodity in the Imperial Army as it swept across the continent claiming new lands for its own. Magic turned the tide in battle for whichever side had the most numerous mages. While ability helped greatly, a large number of fledgling mages could overcome a seasoned magical user in due time, at the cos…
