Distraction

When I was in third grade a Yo-Yo master (I assume that was his title, if not it should have been) came to our school. I don’t know why, other than maybe to sell Yo-yo’s. He was amazing. Imagine the most amazing exhibit of skill with a tool like a sword or baton, now replace the tool with a yo-yo. It was something like that. So we had this assembly, all of us were wow’ed by the yo-yo tricks the master and his lackeys performed. Then it ended with “You can buy a yo-yo in back” or something like that.

Announcing the Denver Writers Slack Group

Twitter and Facebook are… well, equal parts great for community and dumpster fire :) I want to interact with more writers, especially those in Denver.

At any rate, regardless of our opinion of the word ‘omnibus’, I’m releasing one. With Space Rogues 4 in beta readers’ hands, I’m working on a little side(ish) project, an omnibus of Space Rogues books 1 through 3. As a fun bonus, it’ll include ‘Merry Garthflak, Wil‘ the short story set shortly after Book 1. The other fun thing with this is that (at least right now) I’m playing with cover ideas. I like using all three iterations of the Ghost on the cover, showing it’s evolution as the books have progressed. It’s either going to be this, or just images of the existing book covers,…
