Current Works in Progress

I am currently working on two novels. They aren't fully formed in my head as of yet, and I'm trying the pantser approach with both. They are tentatively called AWAKENING and DEATH'S EMBER. AWAKENING is in the science fiction genre and DEATH'S EMBER is an epic fantasy. They are both fresh in my mind, but time will tell if either becomes a full book.

I like both ideas for the books:

AWAKENING - Humanity is nearly extinct as their push further and further into the galaxy brought them face to face with a species that, bent on conquering and destroying, nearly wiped out human beings. Those still alive were enslaved and have been for hundreds of years. The protagonist, living on a slave mining world, fights back with the aid of a symbiotic species.

DEATH'S EMBER - The world is dying as a strange force is killing Gaia, the Great Mother, whose magic supports all living things. The protagonist gets wrapped up with those who are trying to find out what this strange force is doing and may hold the key to their success.

I am also working on the next short story in the Colliding Empires series tentatively called FRIENDS & FOES. This story takes place within the Grynithian Empires and may give readers a little more insight about its inner workings and the turmoil taking place there.

A Bit of Reevaluation

I know it's been a while since my last post, but I figured I might as well throw out some updates. Anyone who has been following along should probably want to know that the first five short stories of the Colliding Empires have been released into a single file called "Volume 1."

Another thing that is probably the most notable is the fact that I haven't written a post since back in December. I've quite noticeably been derailed in both my blogging and my writing. I haven't done much writing at all. I apologize for that, but it is also one of my cycles that I definitely need to change.

The second, and most recent development, is that I've decided to remove myself from Twitter and delete my Facebook page. I felt that most of what was being put out to the internet on those media channels were shameless self-promotion. That isn't really what I wanted those to become. I don't like the idea of hitting people over the head with that message. And, to be qui…

Amazon Author Page Following

Check out my Author Page on Amazon! You can follow me there and get notified of new releases and my current portfolio. I think it's a great resource for those who want to get notified as soon as new titles become available. The Colliding Empires short stories have been coming out in a flurry lately. I'll be starting on the final five stories of The Colliding Empires soon. I'm hoping you won't have to wait as long for those as the previous five. By following me on Amazon, you'll be able to know as soon as they're available. Check out my page and follow, you won't regret it.

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!
