Wednesday Update Time!

- Now that Lightville, Book 2 of The Inspector Dalton Files, is live, I have set the price of Otherworld, Book 1 of The Inspector Dalton Files, from 3.99 to .99. I do this with all series, but usually wait until the second book is out. The idea is to lower the barrier of entry to the series. I meant to do it on launch day, but I forgot, sigh. Nonetheless, I'm still excited to have Lightville out there!

- I hit 53.5k words on The Cosmic Artifact, Book 13 of The Evaran Chronicles. I'm at the halfway mark between the mid point and Act 3. Evaran has to make a plan based on a lot of unknowns. However, once those unknowns become known, he adapts the plan.

The gang and others are now deep in a city cube infested with blob-like creatures native to the environment the team is in. On top of that, they also have Gothlic beings to deal with. Tom is working on the cover now, and it will be done next week, so expect a cover reveal soon!

- I hit 12k on Greekland, Book 3 of The Inspector Dalton Files. I tweaked the sequence of events, and now Evot is going to a safe location with the parallel Earth informant. As she is doing that, Dalton is having a sitdown with Hercules, Rick, and Valerie to air grievances and ensure that everyone is on the same page.

Todd and Hermes have a fun lunch discussion, and Todd learns about Greek Pantheon politics, especially during the Ptolemaic dynasty in ancient Egypt!

- I had a bit of a mess still with the audiobook for The Portal Effect, Book 10 of the Evaran Chronicles. The cover has Michael Pauley, and the credits has Michael Wolfe (same narrator, genre specific name). I'll need to update the cover and handle that.

- I watched the first season of The Terror on Hulu. I really like period pieces, and this horror suspense show seemed really well done. Life aboard British ships searching for the Northwest Passage seemed well done, and the threat they faced from both the environment and...something else was intriguing. I'm on season two which is set in California in World War II.

Lightville, Book 2 of The Inspector Dalton Files, is live!

Blurb:

Killing Dalton’s friend is not the way to get his attention.

Strange events bring Earth Ward Inspector Dalton Kingston and his team to southern Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Unfortunately, it’s to investigate the murder of his friend: Earth Ward Inspector Sean Chalmers and his team.

One concern is that everything points to Lightville, a lightmire stronghold. Lightmires are nonhumans who eat diseases and heal people, are natural enemies of vampires, and typically do not involve themselves in events. Now they’re at the center of a murder investigation.

Another issue is that Sean’s team had been investigating strange occurrences, and his notes on the case were stolen.

The nonhuman world’s eyes are on Dalton’s team, and the Earth Ward’s reputation is at stake. Dalton will do what he’s always done and rise to the occasion, displaying one of his core attributes—resilience.

Sunday Update Time!

- I got the proofread back for Lightville, Book 2 of The Inspector Dalton Files! This is my current focus and I'm doing the revision now. I hope to have that wrapped by end of day today and then begin the conversion to eBook format. The plan is to begin final read by tomorrow, with launch on Wednesday or Thursday.

- I hit 49.5k words on The Cosmic Artifact, Book 13 of The Evaran Chronicles. I'm one chapter past the midpoint and have one more character chapter before entering into a heavy action one. In the chapter I just did, Emily learns the true nature of palisin energy direct from one of the Eight while eating spicy meatloaf!

- I hit 9k on Greekland, Book 3 of The Inspector Dalton Files. The Hercules meeting was rough, but Dalton laid down the law. Evot has scouted out the entry area on the parallel Earth, and the team is now crossing over. It's time for them to learn what Ares has been doing behind everyone's backs from the informant's perspective!

- I've begun the high-level outline for book 14 of The Evaran Chronicles. This is an important one since it's the second to last book in the series. Next year will be interesting with Book 15! A Torvatta's chosen from Evaran's future makes an appearance in book 14, and she's blown away at meeting such a young Evaran and also meeting the rest of the gang.

I hope your weekend is going well!


Wednesday Update Time!

- I hit 47k on The Cosmic Artifact, Book 13 of The Evaran Chronicles. The mid point is done, and the gang is not where they expected to be. Even Evaran is surprised which is rare. The next two chapters are calm as the gang regroups to determine their next move and heal up.

- I only got 500 words in to hit 6.5k on Greekland, Book 3 of The Inspector Dalton Files, because my focus was on the midpoint for The Cosmic Artifact. I hope to make progress this next cycle! The team is now at the portal facility and meeting Hercules.

- Michael got me the missing audio files for The Portal Effect, Book 10 of The Evaran Chronicles. I can upload now to Findaway Voices, but will need to update ACX as well. I can also now ask for The Time Cube, Book 11 of The Evaran Chronicles, to go nonexclusive with ACX. I want to update my website this weekend with all the new audiobook retailer links.

- Lightville, book 2 of The Inspector Dalton Files, is still at the proofreader. I expect I'll get it back sometime by next week, with hopefully a weekend launch then!

I hope your week has been going well!


Sunday Update Time!

- The revised manuscript of Lightville, Book 2 of The Inspector Dalton Files, has been sent to my new proofreader! She mentioned it will take about 10-14 days, so I hope to get it back early April. After that, I will do a final revision, then prepare for launch. I'm thinking the second week of April at this point.

- I hit 44k words on The Cosmic Artifact, Book 13 of The Evaran Chronicles. I got caught up on the chronology, and I'm in the midpoint now. I enjoyed writing Dr. Snowden and Tollandra's scene as Gothlic lords arrive to slice people up. Emily and Grog have a much different approach to the Gothlic lords.

Evaran also uses a time travel technique that was featured in The Human Factor, Book 7 of The Evaran Chronicles. I have 1.5 scenes left in the midpoint, and things are about to get even wilder.

- I hit 6k words on Greekland, Book 3 of The Inspector Dalton Files. The team is currently at Earth Ward headquarters and meeting with Odin, Zeus, Quetzalcoatl, Amun, and Guan Yu. Those who have read The Shadow Connection, Book 6 of The Evaran Chronicles, may remember them as part of the Imperium ruling council. They are presenting their case to Dalton and team and hope they'll take it. Hercules is in the next scene, and he has some words for Valerie and Rick :O

I also got to write a bit about Jake and Brad's friendship. They've become best buds and joke around with each other a lot. Kathy, Jake's girlfriend, has a sorority sister interested in Brad from a party he went to with Jake. While there, Brad and Jake had a beer outside and Jake planted the idea of Evot as the ultimate girlfriend. Now Brad has all that at the back of his mind throughout this book.

- I got caught up on a new NBC series called Debris. At first, I thought it was something I would normally skip, but it's from the same person who did Fringe, one of my favorite TV series.

In Debris, an alien ship has been breaking up in orbit, depositing debris with strange effects. A CIA agent and a MI6 one investigate the debris. Only three episodes have aired so far, and outside the emotional TV tropes, I liked the sci-fi concepts portrayed.

I hope your weekend is going well!


Wednesday Update Time!

- I've finished the first revision pass of Lightville, Book 2 of The Inspector Dalton Files. This means all red lines have been cleaned up! Now I'm going to go through and address the remaining concerns. I'm on track to send this to my proofreader on Saturday!

- I hit 41k words on The Cosmic Artifact, Book 13 of The Evaran Chronicles. I need to do chronology cleanup, but will do that before the next update. Dr. Snowden and Tollandra are visiting the information forests of Gordech, while Emily and Grog take a walk in the infamous Braylock Khal city cube in Gordech. Evaran, Murukhan, V, and Zax are reporting to the Eight. Everything is calm, and the midpoint has been reached. Next chapter is going to be fun!

I did finish the cover mockup I wanted, but now need to write the brief. Only a few weeks before it goes to Tom.

- I hit 3.5k words on Greekland, Book 3 of The Inspector Dalton Files. I didn't get much done here due to LIghtville and The Cosmic Artifact taking precedence as well as the paperback thing, but I did make some progress. Todd and Rick are having breakfast and about to learn from Brad about the new case. It's time for the team to visit Odin, Zeus, and the rest of the Imperium.

- If you like DC, the four hour Justice League Snyder Cut is out on March 18 on HBOMax. There are supposed to be quite a few differences from what was released in theaters, so I'm excited to watch it!

I hope your week is going well!


I finally got the paperback for The Evaran Impact, Book 12 of The Evaran Chronicles, published! Although paperback readers are generally not my audience, I still do them. I like being able to hold it in my hand :) The audiobook is next, but that's a bit away unfortunately.

Sunday Update Time!

- I've revised 18/26 chapters of Lightville, Book 2 of The Inspector Dalton Files. I'm keeping track of various notes as I go, and I plan to address them after my initial revision. I also secured a proofreader! I hope to send this to her by next weekend. She takes longer than my previous proofreader, so this is looking like an early April launch now.

- I hit 38k words on The Cosmic Artifact, Book 13 of The Evaran Chronicles. I would be starting the midpoint, but I rearranged a few things. The last two scenes were cosmologically dense, so I took some extra time to make sure they were accurate. The gang is back at Gordech to deliver their findings to the Eight. Once that scene is finished, then I'll start the midpoint!

The cover for this is due in April, so I'll be working on the mock over the next week.

- I've hit 3k on Greekland, Book 3 of The Inspector Dalton Files! Ares plan is revealed at a high level, and unfortunately, those who crossed over with him to a new Earth did not expect what awaited them. All hail the Ares Dominion!

- I'm getting closer on the paperback for The Evaran Impact, Book 12 of The Evaran Chronicles. They rejected my first submission as expected. Part of the problem is that their print previewer/guide is different than the cover templates they use, so if you build it to the templates they offer, it fails. It's trial and error then to get it right. There were some minor issues with the interior PDF, and that's being addressed now. I'm hoping this can be launched by next weekend.

I hope your weekend is going well!


Wednesday Update Time!

- I've revised 10/26 chapters of Lightville, Book 2 of The Inspector Dalton Files. Revision is fun and also gives me a chance to fine-tune things. I'm still on track to be done with revision by end of next week!

- I hit 35k words on The Cosmic Artifact, Book 13 of The Evaran Chronicles. The chronology has been caught up up, and I'm three scenes from the midpoint! The gang, along with Murukhans's team, are back aboard the Torvatta. They've rested up and are now in a meeting. Next step is to explore how universal energy pops in and out!

- I've hit 2k on Greekland, Book 3 of The Inspector Dalton Files! The first scene was fun to write as Dr. Snowden's colleague learns just how bad of a situation he's in. With Evaran and V off world with the Torvatta and Emily at Jelton's place, that leaves Dalton and team to assist Dr. Snowden.

Ares also has his own chapters, and I've enjoyed writing from his perspective. For those who wondered what happened to him after The Shadow Connection, Book 6 of The Evaran Chronicles, this a direct continuation from there. He's tired of being under other's thumbs, in particular Evaran and the Earth Ward.

- The paperback was sent for final review by Amazon. I'm not holding my breath, though.

I hope your week has been going well!


Sunday Update Time!

- I've revised 6/26 chapters of Lightville, Book 2 of The Inspector Dalton Files! Miranda is a very thorough editor, so revisions take some time to do, but I'm moving at a decent clip. I plan to be done by end of March, and I still need to find a proofreader.

- I hit 33k on The Cosmic Artifact, Book 13 of The Evaran Chronicles. That's roughly a third of the book done. The gang investigated a Zorokastic temple and are now dealing with a Gothlic lord incursion. It's been fun describing the abominations that accompany the lords.

Due to the nature of universal energy, city denizens that would normally be killed are still alive even if half their body is missing. A universal imprint of their form is present that is tied to the physical form, even if parts of it are strewn across the battlefield or in monsters' stomachs, ensuring the victim is still suffering. Gothlic lords don't mess around!

- I didn't get to start on Greekland, Book 3 of The Inspector Dalton Files, yet, but plan to write the first scene today. Lightville's revision takes precedence, as does The Comic Artifact, but I'll add to this when I can!

- Although I got my paperback interior back, Amazon's KDP Print is playing games again. Sigh. I really miss CreateSpace. They made print publishing easy, whereas it seems KDP Print's goal is to aggravate you as much as possible. Ah well. Colleen will update it next week, then I'll try again.

I hope your weekend is going well!
