The Colliding Empires Update

I just wanted to let everyone know that the Colliding Empires short story FRIENDS and FOES is complete. I'm just working on edits right now. I've also begun on the next story in the series, FAULT and BLAME. If I keep on my current schedule, I'll have stories 4 and 5 done by the end of the month.

I should also note that I won't be releasing it immediately. I'm going to finish the rest of the volume 1 collection first, stories 1-5. This is more of a marketing strategy than anything. I want to be prepared in a release schedule for all the stories that allows me to get the word out as well as have some cover reveals, etc. While I'm glad that some people have really enjoyed my stories, the sales and downloads have been fairly limited. For the rest of my stories in this series, I want to generate some buzz before releases. Once they are all written, I can plan out the releases and allow myself time to get the word out on a broader level. I'll be doing the same thing for the final five stories in the series as well.

In other news. . .I'm working right along in various short stories and doing the planning for a few different novels right now. I hope to begin some aspect of planning, outlining, or writing on these works alongside The Colliding Empires stories. That's all for now. Thanks for following along with my progress!

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 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…

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!
