Large Print

So, I decided to try something. large Print. It’s been on my mind for a while, I mean if someone wants Space Rogues in Large Print why not offer it too them? I just wasn’t sure the least painful way to do it, and then Vellum, one of my favorite apps ever, solved it for me! Now, when exporting a print edition, I can select Large Print, and it will upscale the font, adjust the margins, etc for me. It’s not perfect, ideally I can export regular and large together, but for now it’s fine. So there we go, know anyone that likes large print books? and of course Scifi? :) Go ahead and point them to Space Rogues LP. If it starts to sell, I’ll get books 2&3 up…

WIP Thursday 1-31

Space Rogues 4 is proceeding nicely. Slower than i expected, but it’s a more complex story. This book shows the crew’s strengths in different ways. Showing that while they’re stronger together they’re also forces to be reckoned with singly and in smaller groups. “So, which one can you fly?” Bennie asks Maxim, looking from the fighter deck below to the big Palorian kneeling next to him. They’re crouching in one of the larger air ducts near the top most section of the multi deck hangar facility. “Uh, well, none.” Before Bennie can reply, he adds, “I was never a fighter pilot, but that,” he points to a craft, larger than the strike fighters that litter the deck of the hangar. “What the wurrin is that?” Bennie asks, holding his wristcomm…

WIP Thursday 1-10-19

Most of you probably won’t see this until Friday, but whatever. I was sitting at my desk looking for motivation and realized; one, I hadn’t done WIP Thursday in a bit and 2, I hadn’t done one (IIRC) for Space Rogues 4. So here we are. This is short but fun. “At least this corridor seems heated.” Maxim says as he and Bennie head off down the long moderately well lit service corridor leading to the main research complex. Bennie, finally warm looks up at his big friend, “So, what do you think we’re getting ourselves into? We know it can’t be Peacekeepers, rogue or otherwise, we just left that party. It can’t be some super computer intelligence, we’ve done that already, what would be the odds?” Maxim tuts, “You’re…

Writing, a year in review

One of these years, this post will be from the perspective of “The Year I Made My Entire Income From Writing” This year isn’t that year, but it’s a good stepping stone toward that goal. This is the first full year with more than one book out, so I have more data, and (yay!) more income. Books First of all, how many books are ‘live’ now? Four, well like three and a half. Space Rogues (1) Merry Garthflak, Wil (Short story) Space Rogues 2: Big Ship, Lots of Guns Space Rogues 3: The Behemoth Job Book 3 didn’t go live until a few days ago, so the bulk of the money and points in this post are primarily around books 1 & 2. Book 1 didn’t go wide until June…
