Support Indie Bookstores

I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t buy paper books any more. I love paper books. I used to have hundreds of them. Then i moved. Then I moved again, and again. Books are freaking heavy. I’d end up with a box that was half books and half bathroom stuff just so the box isn’t 9,000 pounds. I’ve had times in my life where I travel a lot, lugging books around sucks. My Kobo has my entire library on it. Anyway, there are other ways to support indie Bookstores. My local store, Bookbar created a VIP program. I signed up immediately (I’m member #7). Back when the world wasn’t on fire, I’d go down to write and sip something (Coffee, beer, wine in no particular order). I’d go to…

Meet the Osprey

I’ve been working on the first book in a new series. If you love Wil and the crew of the Ghost, you’ll love Jax and the Osprey! While Wil has the crew of lean on, Jax has his mechanical friends. The Osprey is a Valerian Coop scout ship. She’s meant for speed, and running away from fights, but don’t let Jax, or the ship’s AI, Skip hear you say that. I’m working with the same artist who envisioned the Ghost to bring the Osprey to life. I can’t wait to see more of her! It’s fun to collaboratively design a starship.

I don’t own a laptop anymore

For the first time in twenty-odd years, I don’t own a laptop. This past weekend, I fedex’ed my MacBook Air (With the shitty keyboard. Thanks, Tim Cook) back to apple for trade-in credit on a Mac Mini. The Mac Mini is great, it’s way more powerful than the MacBook Air, which is a plus, but wasn’t super necessary outside of making video editing and possibly running my upcoming online conferences easier. I really liked the Air, except for it’s keyboard. I bought it knowing it wasn’t outrageously powerful, which for conference organizing and writing was just fine. Except the keyboard made writing agonizing. keys would repeat, keys would not activate, all randomly and never the same behavior in a row, so my manuscripts would be riddled with repeated words, wrong…

Welcome Expedition Inc. to the Family

I’ve alluded to it in my newsletter, and I’ve started setting up the back end stuff (Like the Newsletter link to opt into Expedition Inc. Specific news) I’ve just received book 1 back from the editor and am prepping it for ARC readers (want to be one? Sign up). This is a bit of a departure while staying in my zone. I don’t want to give away too much, but if you like the dynamic of the crew of the Ghost, you’ll love the Expedition Inc. Team. Expedition inc. is set on Earth just a little bit in the future. I’m aiming for more action adventure than scifi. I’m aiming to launch Expedition Inc. #1 – Island of Secrets sometime in the fall.
