As I am working my way through my final edit of Pilgrim’s Trail and I really wish that I had an editor that I could just write endlessly and throw the work at them for them to sort out! Looking at rewriting the beginning of Capitulation because I don’t think it captures the reader in…

Well started the final rewrite/edit of Pilgrim’s Trail and I guess my hope is that I capture all the ideas that I have in the story and am able to translate them into a good story that will entertain and enlighten people. I know that I have a good story it is just a matter…

I made a promise to myself when I began writing that I was going to keep the science in my science fiction. As a result I am going to have to pull up short on my hollow earth story as it is impossible for the Earth to be hollow! I actually did the math to…

One of the fun things about writing is trying to create new words. Currently I am working on what an intelligent robot may call themselves  as I think that the word robot, meaning worker or serf in Czech, will be viewed as a derogatory term. I have been researching different words in different languages and…

I must be the worst blogger! I just noticed that I have not made an entry in almost two weeks! Having finished writing Pilgrim’s Trail I set to editing it but have found that I still have more stories in me and have continued writing Core and the sequel to Capitulation titles Reciprocity. As I…

Finished Pilgrim’s Trail this weekend, the writing anyway. Now on to the headache of editing and cover art. I have a lead with an editor and cover artist so maybe that will fall away and I can focus on writing. Wishful thinking on my part. As usual the story poured over into the next book currently…
