Meet the crew of the Ghost – Zephyr

Meet Zephyr (No last name, because Peacekeepers). Zephyr is the First Officer on the Ghost. She pretty much just assumed the role after her and Maxim were brought aboard the Ghost by Wil. She also tends to be the responsible one when compared to the rest of the crew. She’s Palorian, a race with very aggressive and warlike tendencies that early on is “helped” by the Tarsi, to find a less destructive outlet for their militaristic tendencies.   I’m really pleased with how well she came out. Her no-nonsense attitude seems to come out in her face really well. I’ve been hesitant to have the crew put to paper (or screen) because characters always look one in our heads, and to most readers, it’s never the same. I have to…

See You at Mile High Con 51!

This is officially my first public thing as a writer! A panel at MileHighCon 51 I’m on a panel Saturday (the 19th) at 7pm. It’s about Self publishing and platforms like KDP, Createspace and Ingram Spark. Should be fun!

Taking Notes When/Wherever

I’m a sucker for a gadget. With that out of the way, I’m also a sucker for writing things down. I’ve notebooks everywhere, but am not a fan of them. I’ve moved most of my note taking to my iPad and Goodnotes (Great app!) But I don’t carry my iPad around all the time. I tried carrying a Fieldnote and pen, didn’t love it. I got an awesome looking leather bound notebook, that looks awesome and kinda old-timey archeologist, but it’s a bit heavy, and I forget to grab it a lot. Then I stumbled across the Mobiscribe. It’s about as basic a gadget as you can get. Eink screen like a Kindle. Android OS. Passive stylus. Wifi. No Bluetooth. That’s it. It doesn’t ship with an email client or…
