WIP Thursday 9-12

I really need to get better at sharing these. WIP Thursdays are some of my favorite posts. Space Rogues 5: Danger, Space, The Usual (Working Title) is with Beta Readers now, then off to the editor. In the meantime, a brief scene with Zephyr and Maxim oversharing. The two Palorians say nothing for a minute, staring at the smug military man. The moment Pierce adjusts his seat, Zephyr answers, “Where to start?” She smiles. “We’ve been with Wil for a few cycles now, he rescued us from prison, after we’d been framed by our superiors, who were hoping to start a minor brushfire war to force several non-aligned sectors to join the GC.” Maxim chimes in, “Don’t forget the heist, that was a ton of fun. Highlight of that whole…

Taking Notes When/Wherever

I’m a sucker for a gadget. With that out of the way, I’m also a sucker for writing things down. I’ve notebooks everywhere, but am not a fan of them. I’ve moved most of my note taking to my iPad and Goodnotes (Great app!) But I don’t carry my iPad around all the time. I tried carrying a Fieldnote and pen, didn’t love it. I got an awesome looking leather bound notebook, that looks awesome and kinda old-timey archeologist, but it’s a bit heavy, and I forget to grab it a lot. Then I stumbled across the Mobiscribe. It’s about as basic a gadget as you can get. Eink screen like a Kindle. Android OS. Passive stylus. Wifi. No Bluetooth. That’s it. It doesn’t ship with an email client or…

Space Rogues 4 Release Date!

So, I sent out the newsletter, but here’s the super official, 100% public announcement. More official right? shrug. Space Rogues 4: Stay Warm, Don’t Die releases July 26th. I was hoping for sooner, like April, but you know, life, lemons, lemonade all that. I’m actually doing final proofreading now having received the edited copy from my editor, and it’s funny, I finished SR4 moths ago, this is actually the longest gap between finishing the 1st draft and releasing the book. I’d already started to forget things, and in the re-read am laughing to myself as I watch the crew go about this latest adventure.   So, that said, please head over to the store of your choice (They’re all listed here) and pre-order so you can enjoy this latest adventure of…

Space Rogues 2: Hot off the …. Presses?

Here it is! To say I’m excited is an understatement! The excitement is compounded by the upcoming wide release of not just Space Rogues 2, but of Space Rogues 1. Space Rogues 1 will be available on all the digital platforms on June 3. Space Rogues 2 will be available June 29! Both books are available for pre-order on all platforms right now! Go get ’em!   I’m really happy with everything about Space Rogues 2: Big Ship, Lots of Guns. The cover is amazing, I think the writing is pretty solid (My editor agrees!) and I think the universe I’m building is taking even more shape. We’re meeting more people and visiting more places, I’m gonna need an atlas soon!   I decided to take my work wide for…
