WIP Thur…Friday 10/4

In Space Rogues 5: So This is Earth, the crew goes to, well, Earth (it’s in the name). They have some neat adventures (You’ll have to read it) and spend a while away from the Ghost. Of course they get back to the ship though, she’s their home. “Damn I’m glad to see her,” Wil says exiting into the clearing the Ghost is sitting in. The ship looks just like when they’d left her a few weeks ago. “It’s kinda ugly.” Agent Smith says entering the clearing, next to Maxim. The tall Palorian looks down at the human, “It is a she, and she’s the best ship I’ve ever been on, and she’s beautiful.” Smith makes a face, “I’d hate to see the other ships then.”

A Tale of Two Covers

So, last week I posted the first take on the cover for Space Rogues 5: So This is Earth? (I hadn’t settled on the subtitle yet, but I like this one). I also sent that cover to my newsletter (You’re on it right? Lots of fun and perks there!) As folks began chiming in with their thoughts I started tinkering on a cover that’s more thematically similar to the rest of the series. It’s below next to the first pass at a cover.                         So I’m curious now (I know, I just asked) about which you prefer? I actually feel more drawn to cover two. Like I said, It’s thematically in line with the series (the Ghost in space/over…

WIP Thursday 9/26 – A little something new

So, while I love the crew of the Ghost and plan to chronicle their adventures for as long as I can, I’ve been toying with something new. I’m not going to give you a ton of back story yet for this new cast of misfits, you’ll have to meet then when they say “hello world” sometime early in 2020. “She’s on her way.” Scarlett replied. “OK, cool. Now, about Edward. Can it harass that other boat? I promise if it buys the farm I’ll buy you a new one.” “Uh, you were buying me a new one anyway, remember Jacob, he’s dead.” “He is a drone, but ok sure. I’ll get you two drones.” Jason sighed, rolling his eyes. “I heard that.” Sofia turned, suppressing a chuckle. “Just do it…

Space Rogues 5 Cover reveal/WIP

Space Rogues 5 is officially with the editor! So… while I work on ideas for Space Rogues 6 (and a new series I hope you’ll enjoy) I took a bit of time to work on the cover. I’m not 100% sure this is the final version, but it’s the idea I’m going for. What do you think? I wanted to show the Ghost landed (You’ll have to get your copy when it comes out to find out where she’s landed), and wanted to see what it would look like to have her in a forest clearing.
