Been a while since the last WIP post. I have a good excuse though! I’ve wrapped up Space Rogues 3; the cover is being created, the manuscript is heading to the editor, and I’ve already started working on the first draft of Space Rogues 4: Space is Dangerous (It’s a working title).

Bennie takes a sip of his drink, a bright green liquid that is popular on the station, “Oh come on, that’s just a Wil thing. You know him, is it any wonder people are always trying to kill him?”
