Another week in the books. It’s the middle of January, and while the daily word count has taken a massive hit from the numbers I was hitting towards the end of 2017, the most critical thing is that I’m still getting a minimum of 1000 words down a day. I’d like to get those up …Continue reading "Week in Review: 20/1/18"

Well we’re 13 days into 2018, and it’s time to take stock of the current state of affairs. 2017 was a good year. Got Edge of the Vortex out late in the year, and this year I’m projecting to have Standish and the 6th Earth Saga book Condition Zero released. Lots of work to …Continue reading "Week in Review: 13/1/18"

It’s the 17th of December, and some time has passed since my last blog. I blame myself for this tragedy. In the last two months work on Standish has continued at a fairly regular pace, and while the target word count of 90,000 words was reached by the end of November, it is clear that …Continue reading "December"
It’s the middle of October, and things are moving along. Book V, Edge of the Vortex, is finally out. Standish is just under the 60,000-word mark. Ideally, I’d have it finished this month, then up on Amazon in November. That will depend on a variety of factors. Got some great work recently from Luke West. …Continue reading "The Middle of October"
After much struggle, we’ve got there. Book V, Edge of the Vortex, is now live on Amazon. Edge of the Vortex covers a period of roughly six months after the conclusion of Remnants of Empire, and while it doesn’t answer many questions, it does put in motion some major keys to the future of humanity, …Continue reading "Edge of the Vortex"
Trying to keep one eye on the horizon isn’t easy, but it is critical to ensure that there is some flight-plan for the future of my sci-fi series. It’s the 22nd of September 2017. The Earth Saga currently has four books on-line: Minus Epsilon, Defiant Order, Horizons, Remnants of Empire. Book V is complete and …Continue reading "Beyond the Earth Saga Series"
The end of the summer has seen a flurry of activity on book V (Vortex) and Standish. Book V is complete, and has been edited once, and has gone through a beta-test. Standish is over the 50% mark, and awaiting completion. I have also recently scrubbed books 1-4 and relaunched them on Amazon. In some …Continue reading "Late Summer 2017 and the Future"
So, working on Standish again, and I wanted to use Ivan as a cover designer, and go with a helmet as the cover image. This is the final result. What you are looking at is a helmet for a Rescue Technician of the Imperial Fleet, Pre-War of Succession. The helmet has several optical sensors and …Continue reading "Standish"
