Work in Progress


Is it just me or is ‘omnibus’ just a cool word that sounds super technical and imposing, despite being a synonym for ‘box set’? At any rate, regardless of our opinion of the word ‘omnibus’, I’m releasing one. With Space Rogues 4 in beta readers’ hands, I’m working on a little side(ish) project, an omnibus of Space Rogues books 1 through 3. As a fun bonus, it’ll include ‘Merry Garthflak, Wil‘ the short story set shortly after Book 1. The other fun thing with this is that (at least right now) I’m playing with cover ideas.

Work In Progress Thursday: That’s a Big Door

WIP Thursday – NaNoWriMo has begun!

So, NaNoWriMo has begun! Last year, I wrote ‘Space Rogues‘ and since ‘Space Rogues 2: The Wrath of Khan… er.. Zarrix (It’s a working title)’ is well underway (about 20k words in) I decided to do something I’ve never done. Short stories, novellas, not sure which yet. I guess it’ll depend on when I finish them. My plan for NaNoWriMo is was to write two such stories. They’ll be set in the Space Rogues Universe and will be set between the first and second books. Each will be a self-contained story and designed to be small vignettes into the lives of the crew.   I’m close to wrapping up ‘Merry Garthflak, Wil’ but with work stuff, trying to buy and sell houses, plan a move, etc writing time has been more…
