So, I have been remiss in blogging. Again.
One could assume this is my natural state of being, but given the recent introduction of a sleep aid machine to my life, I have a feeling I may be posting more often in the future, given the additional energy.
I have been considering my next move as an independent author even as I keep writing on various works in progress. I wrote two short stories in the past thirty days or so, and am planning to use dictation to speed my completion of the current novel I’m working on (The Pillar Universe Book 4).
I’ve known for a while now, my first love is fantasy, despite having written predominantly science fiction this year. I know these genres are close to each other in qualities, which is probably why I enjoy them both. However, my particular brand of writing I think lends itself more toward the worlds of fantasy, rather than the more futuristic worlds of space opera or cyberpunk.
I’m still planning on continuing the science fiction series I have out already, but given my fantasy roots and the ease I had marketing my fantasy novella series last fall, I think its time to change course back to what is for me, the core of my genre preferences.
Once this fourth Pillar Universe book is complete, I will make my move to write some more fantasy.
In the meantime, as I wrap up this post, please check out Booksprout and pick up a copy of Storm Fleet for free, in exchange for a review.
Thanks for reading.
I’ll chat at you all again soon.
Sorry for not blogging as much as planned. Honestly, though my mental health has been improving I’m still far from tough in that (Or really any) arena. I don’t have any other excuse for taking so long to edit book 2 of the Pillar Universe series.
After I sent Storm Fleet to the proofreader I took a week to start writing a different story for fun. While I enjoyed the writing, that may have been a mistake as it pushed back the release of Flame Wind, book two in the series when combined with my general difficulty in writing additional scenes for the story.
Anyway, I’m pleased to say that Flame Wind is currently with the proofreader and I will have it published as soon as I get it back and make any necessary changes. Thanks for your patience, especially if you picked up book one. I fully intended to release book two on January 19th (My birthday, incidentally) but through my own slowness that became impossible. Thanks for reading, and I hope 2019 treats you all as well as it possibly can.
Talk to you soon, and have a cover reveal for Flame Wind while you’re here.
As of this writing, Storm Fleet, the Pillar Universe Book One is out for reading on Amazon.com! Check it out, enjoy it, and then write a review.
Read it free in Kindle Unlimited if you like.
Really, I’m just very excited about this story and want to get more people to see it. Please, share if you’re intrigued.
Thank you for reading!
I hope you all have a good last two weeks of 2018, rough as this year has been.
Hello everybody! Long time no blog.
Today is a special seven-minute blog, not least of all because it’s been too long.
I am relaunching a series (Starting yesterday), with the books below. The series formerly known as “Clean” is now “The Root Conspiracy” so if you’ve got the 3 books I launched these won’t be new to you. However, I suspect many of you have not read this series, so allow me to invite you to give it a shot from this point on.
These books portray a future where superhuman beings protect humanity, but they’re also the greatest threat.
Our hero, Jeth, gets in over his head when he tries to restore his lost love’s memories in book one, which draws him into a deeper conspiracy, the roots of which go deep. See what I did there?
If you like speculative futures, weird fiction, or just good thrillers with some science fiction trappings, this series is for you.
I’m proud to bring these back out in new clothes and hope I can find a larger audience with a solid representation of these stories in the right categories. Right now they’re all going to be exclusive with Amazon.com so you can read them for free if you have Kindle Unlimited.
Thanks for reading and supporting me. I’m especially happy to thank fellow author Yudhanjaya Wijeratne for his pointing out a major weak point in my approach to showing off this series. But that’s seven minutes. Read on, folks!
This blog has been seeing a great amount of traffic lately. I’m very happy with all the visitors, so I felt like doing something nice for all of you if you’re interested.
From now until the end of March, you can get my YA Cyberpunk Novel, “Rem’s Dream,” for free!
This is giveaway has got me excited. I guess I’m just in a good mood in general.
Thanks a bunch for making me feel less alone on the Internet! Please share this link: https://www.instafreebie.com/free/9DaKl to the giveaway if the mood takes you.
Share and enjoy!
Thanks for reading.
Tenlyres is so close to being ready for release it is driving me crazy in the best way possible.
As that pilot character famously said in Star Wars: “Almost there.”
In Other News, is going to be a new (And possibly short-lived) feature of this blog and my website. It will feature me discussing works by others that I am intrigued by.
So, without further ado…
In Other News #1
Tenlyres is not the only book near completion. An author I know through her legendary “I Should Be Writing” podcast, Mur Lafferty, has a new book coming out on January 31st. It’s called Six Wakes, and I like the premise a great deal.
It is science fiction featuring a crew of clones on a space ship who wake up to find the originals murdered. And they must figure out which of them is the killer.
I love that premise, and Mur writes a tight story. My favorite of her past work was also science fiction, a relatively obscure little tale called “Marco and the Red Granny.”
Check out Mur’s site: HERE
Anyway, that’s it for my other news today.
Keep your eyes on the near future, folks.
Thanks for reading.
Rem’s Dream is out on all platforms. I’ve been looking forward to writing that.
Just to start off, here are some links:
This book is about coming of age in the near future, when dreams are fuel for the world, and also the home of the greatest threat to humanity. Nightmares abound and they have teeth.
Do us both a favor and give it a read.
Oh, and Tenlyres will be back this Friday, with Chapter 26. Don’t think that means I won’t still be talking about Rem’s Dream for a few weeks. And thanks to everyone who reads here.
As always, thanks for reading.
