Wednesday Writing - Brainstorming a New Novel

I wanted to switch gears yet again this Wednesday. While writing continues on The Colliding Empires, I have been itching to start a novel again. I have a couple of ideas I've been entertaining, but neither has gotten me that excited. I want to break into the Science Fiction genre. So, I'm going to give my intro ideas and hopefully you guys can chime in with comments that can help push me one way or another. Here it goes:

My initial idea was Halo meets Venom meets Star Wars. I think a lot of people might understand the Halo meets Star Wars part, but the Venom addition is the melding of an alien entity with a human (the difference is instead of the alien basically encasing the human, the alien would be a symbiotic organism within the human's brain). The original idea was the relationship would help to break humans away from hundreds of years of bondage and slavery from an alien race and eventually bring them back from near extinction. But, that's all i really have so far. I have a possible first chapter written, but I'm not sure I'm digging the POV and a few other things.

Any thoughts, comments, concerns, nudges, or whatever are welcome! What do you think?

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…
