According to Plan, Maybe

I’ve been writing as often as I can, and my next book is coming along. I may be slower to write this one than the last several, but I hope that will help it be even better. This time, I’m working to make my characters an the events of the story better. I’ve got some interesting characters in my outline, but trying to get them to come across the same in the book is tougher.

Now that I have made my outline stronger and tweaked it to match what I found during my first attempt at this story. Like other aspects of life, having a plan can make things easier to accomplish. But during the process, the plan may need to be flexible. Nothing ever goes completely according to plan. That flexibility is something I’ve been hit with quite a bit in my day job. Everything is changing. The plans I had moving into the new responsibilities have shifted.

My day job takes a lot of my time, but I still write each day. It’s my escape from the stresses my job brings. I plan to have my next book ready by the end of this year. Check out some of my other books on Amazon.

My last book, Collected Lives, 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.
