A Year and Decade in Review

Welp, we’ve passed the Winter Solstice, and in just a few hours we’ll be saying goodbye not just to 2019, but to the 2010’s. I’ve never been a resolution maker but I do like to look back on what I’ve done, what I wanted to do etc. So where are we (the royal we)? The 2010’s saw the birth of my professional writing career. Technically I’ve been paid for my writing for years, as a copy and tech writer, a resume writer, etc. But fiction, that’s new. Plus I stopped selling my non-fiction writing services years ago. If you’d asked me ten years ago if I thought I’d be a writer that makes money I’d have laughed. If you’d asked if I thought I could ever make a living as…

Branding

So I’ve made it through almost all of my in-person stuff. Rocky Mtn Con – Check MileHiCon – Check CO Country Christmas Gift Co-Op – Check Local Author Happy Hour – Check Barnes & Noble local author event – Coming soon.   As part of these activities, I’ve been working on branding over the last few months.  Stuff I can hand out, stuff I can have at my booth with me. Right now that includes; T-Shirts for Nicole and me, two banner signs, a table runner, business cards, and two versions of stickers (One is above). The table runner was a last-minute (and expensive rush shipping) idea but glad I got it. As you can see the provided linen at Rocky Mtn Con wasn’t very big. Overall I’m happy with…

Meet the Crew of the Ghost – Cynthia

SPOILERS AHEAD if you’re just joining the adventures of the crew of the Ghost. You’ve been warned. Cynthia joins the crew after a few adventures. She doesn’t immediately mesh but quickly realizes that the crew of the Ghost has something she’s never had. Family. She grew up trained to be an assassin, then found herself working for a minor crime lord. Through acquisitions and mergers (the violent kind, I mean, crime bosses here) she ends up a lieutenant for Xarrix, head of one of the most powerful criminal organizations in the GC. She’s Tygran, a race that’s part of the Galactic Commonwealth. The Tygran people are well-traveled and progressive, having established civil liberties and equal rights for droids. I wasn’t sure about Cynthia at first. I knew she’d show up…

Meet the Crew of the Ghost – Gabe

GBE-102002 (Gabe to his friends) starts out as an engineering bot. Designed to spend his entire existence in an engineering department. Gabe goes through some significant changes as the series progresses (no spoilers!) He’s often the straight man or foil for the team. Wil wasn’t initially on board but has quickly come to consider Gabe one of his best friends. He’s straight-forward and blunt and rarely cares to get involved with, as he puts it, “tedious banter”. Dan really captured Gabe here. He’s constantly tinkering and most at home in the engineering spaces of the Ghost. Most of the time the crew interacts with him via the ship’s intercom. Gabe can be tough to write since he stays in engineering most of the time, he’s not around for the discussions…
