Malignance is almost ready. It is my third book in my time travel series that began with Resonance and Dissonance. It’s been fun to write that time travel series, but now I’m working on another science fiction book.
I like looking at the characters for a story, and working to make them come to life. This week as I’ve gotten together with family, I’ve been reminded how each person is different. I enjoy getting together with family and seeing the sometimes different approaches each of us have.
As I work on my next book, developing its characters, I keep in mind that our differences are important. In a book, like life, those differences in the characters can make the story come to life. They can also make life interesting. Yet, even with those differences, we’re still similar.
Just like it is important to embrace the differences when I write stories and develop characters, I can do the same in my life. Whether at my day job, or with family, working through our unique approaches and experiences can make life fulfilling.
I hope you find enjoyment during this holiday season. When times get tough, escape into a good book. I plan to.
Beyond my books Resonance and Dissonance, check out my other books.
My fantasy, A Map, a Mage, and a Sacrifice, was a fun book to write. It is set in a world with limited technology, but where sacrifice is a necessary element to magical power. The greater the pain and suffering, the greater the magical power generated. The few mages in power use voluntary sacrifice of the citizens to generate power they use to protect and defend the empire. But their rule may be coming to a close.
If you’re looking for a science fiction story, try my book The Promise of Dust, which takes place in a cloud city floating in the atmosphere of Venus. Or Progenitor’s Legacy: Deceit, which takes place many years in the future on a tidally locked world that orbits a red dwarf and has been reached by humanity in their search for the alien progenitors who seeded the galaxy with nano machines.
If a young adult science fiction is more to your liking, check out my series This New Earth, that starts with Demons of a Dead World and Secrets of a Dead World.
If you are looking for a young adult fantasy, check out my book The Threads Unbound.
