The audiobook for Freelancing, The Earthborn Prequel, is now in "Headed to Retail" status! I may have to update the website this week!


Sunday Update Time!

- I hit 24k on Otherworld, Book 1 of The Inspector Dalton Files. It may seem like I only gained 1k over the last few days, but I redid the previous scene.

One of the concepts I wanted to introduce and took some time fleshing out was Holo-Sketching. It's essentially Evot or Dalton projecting a hologram while someone describes what they saw. Everyone can then interact with it and watch it take shape. Brad enjoyed seeing it in action, although Anna, a Raskarian vampire, was more interested in giving him a bitejob than describing what she saw!

- I finished my revision of Transition, The Inspector Dalton Files Prequel. I love learning from the professional edit, and I keep a growing list of rules to watch for. If anything, there were less commas to clean up this time!

I worked on the interior artwork over the weekend. The main sections are on the left in the attached image. On the right is the title and samples using lorem ipsum text. I went with a more simplistic and clean look.

I still use a fantasy-themed font, but with a tech feel in dotted lines for most parts. There are no real guidelines on Science Fantasy, so I went with what I think works. I still need to cut everything up and render them to individual images, but I wanted to get the overall theme down.

- I've reviewed 25/33 chapters of The Time Cube, Book 11 of The Evaran Chronicles. I'm on schedule to finish this heavier pass by next Sunday! In fifteen days, the cover brief goes to Tom. This will be the first cover with a space station theme!

- It's a waiting game for the audiobook for Freelancing, The Earthborn Prequel! It's still in "Pending Audio Review" as of this morning.

I hope your weekend has been going well!


The audiobook for Freelancing, The Earthborn Prequel, is now officially in "Pending Audio Review" status at ACX! Hopefully, it goes through fast. I put up the retail sample at soundcloud!

Quick Thursday Update!

- I got back the professional edit for Transition, The Inspector Dalton Files Prequel! I'll be going through that starting tonight. Proofread is in two weeks!

- Michael made all the audiobook changes for Freelancing, The Earthborn Prequel. He is going to add some slight music in the opening/closing credits, then it wil be submitted to ACX.

Only one more day until the weekend!


Wednesday Update Time!

- I hit 23k on Otherworld, Book 1 of The Inspector Dalton Files. Dalton and his team continue to gather clues, and are about to venture into the forested territory of the Ogben witch coven.

I've enjoyed the team interaction. Dalton tends to be more serious, Brad is high energy, Valerie is a tough wiseass, Todd is cool and calm, while Evot is a ball of questions that sometimes dances in cat form! Each contributes to the team in different ways and they get to cruise in style with a B7 rated armored SUV.

- I'v reviewed 22/33 chapters of The Time Cube, Book 11 of The Evaran Chronicles. Things are going smooth there, and I still need to get scheduling in for the professional edit/proofreading.

- All the audio chapters for Freelancing, The Earthborn Prequel, have been uploaded. I'll be going through them starting tonight, and by next update, they should be fully reviewed and on to the next step. I've read of other authors running into ACX slowdown issues. I'm hoping it goes as fast as The Portal Effect, Book 10 of The Evaran Chronicles, did.

- Transition, The Inspector Dalton Files Prequel, will be returned on April13. I'll revise for a few days, then it goes to proofread on April 17. One thing I neglected to do so far was the interior artwork aka the headers, titlepage, et. I used to contract that out, but since there is no PDF for this, I will work on that this weekend.

One interesting aspect is this will go live before The Time Cube, Book 11 of the Evaran Chronicles. That's okay, though, as the Inspector Dalton Files is a standalone series. He does make mention of his trip with Evaran, but it's not required to have read The Time Cube beforehand.

- Watching all this recent Star Trek made me think of the Paragon series I'll be doing in the future. It follows a United Planets Paragon (cybernetic law enforcement officer), his team of 6, and their custom ship as they deal with various missions.

It's set in 3105, just a year after The TIme Refugee, Book 4 of The Evaran Chronicles, and the Paragons were mentioned in that book. Paragon Calsius appeared in The Human Factor, Book 7 of The Evaran Chronicles. One day the series will see light!

I hope your week is going well!


So I finally watched Picard! For someone like me who grew up with The Next Generation, and watched Deep Space Nine and Voyager, it was awesome to see certain cameos. While there were some odd things and other events I wished did not happen, I liked it overall.

For the second season, I hope they bring back more cameos. The two I would love to see are Guinan and the cosmic being Q. I also wouldn't mind seeing Garak from DS9, and Admiral Janeway from Voyager.

For those who have read The Evaran Chronicles, you may have noticed the Star Trek influence.I loved the message of logic, hope, and reason in the chaotic maelstrom we call life. Even Dalton's official outfit was influenced somewhat! Nonetheless, I'm loving this era of new Star Trek shows. There's even a Section 31 show coming up!

Sunday Update Time!

- I didn't post a normal update last Wednesday week due to two launches! It has been a busy week in general getting them launched, but now that they are, I return focus back to my other projects!

- I hit 19.5k on Otherworld, Book 1 of The Inspector Dalton Files Prequel. Dalton and team are out and about moving the case forward. I took some to time to shore up what was already written and add in the chronology.

- Transition, The Inspector Dalton Files Prequel, was sent to Miranda on Saturday, and she mentioned an April 13 completion date. I need to get my proofreader scheduled, but this is hopefully looking at an April launch.

- The audiobook for Freelancing, The Earthborn Prequel, is being worked on, and I'm hashing some things out there. If all goes well, it will also have an April launch.

- I've reviewed 19/33 chapters of The Time Cube, Book 11 of The Evaran Chronicles. The self-edit passes will be done in April, and it should go to professional edit then. I'm still looking at a May launch. The cover will also be done later in the month, so I"m looking forward to that as well!

- I've been working on the outline for Book 12 of The Evaran Chronicles as it is the next book up after Otherworld, Book 1 of The Inspector Dalton Files. Book 12 is the start of the third and final series arc, so it is taking a little more time than normal since it ties into the next three books after that. While The Time Cube introduces the first chosen of the Torvatta (Dalton Kingston), Book 12 will also have a unique appearance,

- I broke down and got CBS All Access so I could watch the new Star Trek shows. The first one I watched was Star Trek:Discovery. I was not sure what to expect since there seemed to be some controversy on the format, but I enjoyed it. Picard is up next!

I hope you're staying safe out there and having a good weekend!


The Portal Effect, Book 10 of The Evaran Chronicles, Audiobook is live!

Blurb:
The past can be the future.

Dr. Albert Snowden enjoys traveling through time, but not when Ziekah, a timeline-traveling foe, sends him into the past against his will. Emily and V encounter Ziekah as well, leaving Evaran alone to determine where they were sent.

Ziekah’s crafty and she knows temporal mechanics well. She’s also ruthless, leaving altered timelines in her wake.

With the gang scattered through time, Evaran calls on old friends Jake Melkins and Jelton Stallryn, a Rift Guardian. Together, they will need to find the others while dealing with Ziekah and her timeline alterations.

Redemption, Book 5 of The Earthborn, is live!

Blurb:
Sometimes a situation needs Earthborn.

With over half of the Fredorian Senate missing, Blake and the Exceltion crew are called to duty. Tasked with finding the senators, they will need every advantage they can get. It doesn’t help that Fredorian leaders Andia Kiggs and Rakar Ho Jador are among those who disappeared.

To make matters worse, the Saskarins have incited a Fredorian civil war. Fighting Saskarins is one thing, but fighting Saskarin-controlled Fredorians on Fredoria is another.

The crew will be pushed to their limits to find the missing people while dealing with the Saskarins at every turn. The situation requires unorthodox thinking—something Earthborn excel at. Although Earthborn are often looked down upon, redemption is at hand.

This is the final book in The Earthborn. Evaran makes an appearance at the end, and everything gets wrapped up.I loved writing this series, and am sad it's done, but Blake and crew may pop back up in a trilogy or standalone in the future!
