I’ve been stumbling around a bit with the choice of my next project. I didn’t have this problem earlier in the year, when I sat down to calculate which projects I wanted to work on, with deadlines and tasks defined. However, I got word of an upcoming class on writing a series offered by Holly Lisle (if you love to write, you should check out her offerings here. Lifechangers. Seriously.), I decided to shuffle my schedule in order to accommodate the stories which I had not entirely fleshed out the concepts and characters. Using her method, I could define all of that around the basic idea floating in my head. I shuffled the projects around to get that particular universe into place, but the class hasn’t been moving fast enough for my schedule, so I decided to take on another project and work simultaneously. I’m hoping it doesn’t mess up the quality. Because of that, my next published project is going to be:

Ennid Cover I Take Final

A novelette revisiting Ennid from the short story “Food For Thought” in the Morsels flash fiction anthology.

He’s going to be around for a little while, as I have an arc of novellas planned for him.

(And, for anyone curious about the project I’m working on alongside Holly’s class, it’s SHARC, space opera military fiction.)

Many people think if this day as just another holiday, one if those “paid time off” days where we get together for a barbecue with the family and take a day to relax. So few of us seem to recall what Memorial Day actually means. For the sake of your freedoms and the ability we have to communicate, I urge you to do a little research on the history and meaning of such a day. As a descendant of military veterans (both long passed) and one of several veterans in my immediate family, please take a moment to honor the memory of those who gave their everything for every last one of us living in this incredible country of the United States of America.

Umbra

Posted: May 3, 2014 in Novels, Post-Apocalypse, Science Fiction

Finally gracing the electrons of the Internet it’s… It’s…

(Cue the Monty Python’s Flying Circus Theme*)

Not!

It’s Umbra, several years in the making. Sort of. It officially got an entire re-write this year with some massive edits and some technical tweaking. This story resembles so little of the original draft that I could probably write an entirely new and different story from the original notes.

So here it is, in all its post-Apoc glory.

Hope you enjoy!

I’ll be back this time next week to add a real blogpost, one pertaining to my next project.
