The Little Things Make All the Difference

It’s that time of year when I find myself noticing the small things that happen all around. Whether it is a stranger smiling or wishing happy holidays, or a small accomplishment in my day job, they’re always there if I look. This time of year I look more for them because of the holiday season.

I’ve also seen quite a few small things in my process of revising my current book. It’s a longer book, but at various points, my mind must have known I’d need some additional clues to make the ending work smoother. I’ve found many statements or characters’ comments that I am able to use as I clean up the book in this revision. It’s been a fun process to read what I’ve written. I like it, even though I’m making a few changes here and there.

This time of year is great for noticing the small acts of kindness all around and celebrating the tiny successes in all aspects of life. Before we know it, 2023 will be here. I’m hoping to have my book ready in the coming weeks, but this one has gone slower.

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.
