Free Fall

Just finished the work on Free Fall. It is now availible to anyone that signs up for my sci-fi mailing list. Free Fall is the prequel to the upcoming series The New Glasgow War. I am set to publish Book 1 of the series on October 24th. I have everything lined up and am ready to mash the publish button on it.
Free Fall answers some of the questions that are opened up in Out of the Ashes. It talks about what Rachel Duncan has lost along the way and why after five years of service, she hadn't been promoted. Anyway, I hope you like it.

Currently Reading List

One of the reasons that keeps me writing is being inspired by other authors. Lately, I have been on a science fiction kick. My current go to series when I want to have a book I can just jump into and enjoy fast paced action is Jamie McFarlane's Privateer's Tales.

He is up to book twelve in the series but I have only just cracked open book nine myself.

The other author I have just discovered, is Chris Fox. I have been avidly reading Chris Fox's non-fiction for a while now. But I never tried his fiction. Why? I was trying to figure out how to be a better author and he seems to know what he is doing. So while reading his book Launch to Market (great book) he referenced his book Destroyer throughout the process. I picked the book up to see what it was about and how he was doing things.

I found a new series that I like. He has several series out and I will probably end up being sucked into those as well. There is nothing better than a good book, except a good series of books.

Anyway, I hope you check these out. They are personal favorites. Let me know if you like them.

New Release Coming Soon

I have finished the editing on the first book in my sci-fi series - Out of the Ashes. I have a new cover for it for the book from the very talented artist - Aaron Miller of Miller Design and Marketing. I really like it.

The series is the New Glasgow War. The basis is that the Federated Union of Planets controls a number of systems in the galaxy. There are core planets that formed the FUP. They are the full members. Secondary systems that were colonized later are associated systems that have fewer rights within the FUP. Several planets have rebelled against the FUP whose military has brutally suppressed them in each case.

The planet of New Glasgow has been fighting the FUP for years. Duncan of the New Glasgow Militia has been in the fight since the beginning. She is fighting against the elite that the FUP has to offer including their Mechs.

While I am waiting on a cover for my Sci-Fi Story, "Out of the Ashes: A Story of the New Glasgow War", I ran a promotion with someone on Fiverr. They gave me a 3d cover for CSS Appomattox. I really like it. Let me know what you think.

While I am at it, if you are interested in being a beta reader for Out of the Ashes or any of the series, please reach out to me. I'd be happy to get some feedback.

Sci Fi Series - First Book is Draft Complete

I just finished out the first of my Sci Fi series - The New Glasgow War. The first book is titled "Out of the Ashes". I am just starting editing on it now. I hope to have it ready for beta readers by next month.

The second book in this series will be "Counter Strike." I have the principle outline ready for it and will start work on it for camp Nanowrimo next month.

The plan is to have the first three books in the series written before I release any of them. If all goes well, I hope to have a cover done for them soon.
