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.

I wanted to show these to anyone who hasn't seen them yet. This is a great video series with some awesome information for writers. And, of course, it features Patrick Rothfuss, one of my all-time favorite authors (and of course his epic beard). I bow down to the bearded one. . .all right. Let's get this show on the road -- onward, to glory!!!










A Chosen Path in the Editing Stage

A CHOSEN PATH, the second installment of the Colliding Empires Short Story Series, is now officially in the editing phase. I hope to get some feedback from my writing group in the next couple of weeks, and I have been sifting through it on my own to find those nasty little grammatical errors that crop up when the first draft is done. I hope to have it published on Amazon in 2 to 3 weeks. I would like to thank Jeffrey Kosh for his covers. He will be providing me with the covers for all ten of the short stories that I plan to publish for this series. If you are an author and are looking for covers that easily fit into your budget, I would suggest giving his web page a quick look. Thanks everyone!

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…
