These last two weeks have been busy. I’m almost done with my draft of my current book. I’m just one chapter away from the ending I wrote a few weeks ago. The story is shaping up nicely, but once I finish this draft, I’ll spend some time going back through it to perfect it.
I really enjoy the writing process and thinking about the events, characters, challenges, and the environment of the story. My goal is to bring out more of what I envision as I write. It will always be a work in progress, but I hope to have this book ready in coming weeks. As I spend time creating, and thinking through the story and its characters, I sometimes gain insights into the people I’m around every day.
I’m working to make this book closer to perfect, but perfection isn’t my only goal. I write for my own enjoyment and health. It’s a great way I’ve found to step away from my day job’s stresses and recharge.
Take a look at 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 ancient technology where sacrifice of lifeforce brings magical power. The greater the pain and suffering, the greater the magical energy generated. The Forty mages controlling the empire 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.
