This has been an interesting week for me. Like a protagonist in a good story, I’ve had some challenges added to my daily life. I’ve been given more responsibilities in my day job, which have made my days busier. But in the midst of that, I’m not giving up on improving my writing.
For me, developing characters and writing stories has helped me understand better the interactions I have with those around me. The new responsibilities of my job may slow down my writing a little, but it won’t be much. I’m working on the outline and fleshing out of my next book. Writing helps me sharpen my focus for my day job and helps me prepare to work through the challenges of the new responsibility I’ve been given.
Challenges can mean growth and lead to greater understanding.
Check out some of my books on Amazon.
My latest book, Collected Lives, is now available on Amazon Kindle and as a paperback. Check it out. This story takes place near the end of the twenty-second century, with vacations and tourism to Earth by off-worlders controlled by major corporations. The largest corporation, Collected Lives, has several enemies. The story follows the events as four people from different portions of Collected Lives’ process are thrown into the middle of a larger problem.
My fantasy, A Map, a Mage, and a Sacrifice, 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.
Malignance, my third book in my time travel series that began with Resonance and Dissonance, is on Amazon as a kindle and a paperback. That was a fun series to write, and for now, it is completed. I have also placed all three books from that series into one volume titled The Machina of Time.
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.
