The danger of completing a work is that you are never really done. As I look at Pilgrim’s Trail in an effort to capture some of the social and theoretical questions I have raised I have also found myself wandering back to my first novel Capitulation and contemplating rewriting it as well. I think Capitulation…

Sometimes research can be a dangerous thing. I am trying to research the last days in Nazi Germany for an upcoming book and read some real fringe articles about international conspiracies for profit at everyones expense, etc. Well I finished my research and there appears to be no conspiracy because the people allegedly behind the…

Amazing things have been happening in the last few days as short stories that I have written that don’t have enough weight to carry an entire novel have been combining to create some amazing works. I only hope that as I writer I can do them justice. Pilgrim’s Trail is rapidly moving on not only…

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.

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…

Greetings and sorry about the long absence! I guess that my mind had wandered into a dark place and I was having a hard time struggling out of it. I knew that I was depressed but was unable work my way out. I actually came through it by reading the first three books in Edgar…

Tired does not begin to describe how I feel right now. Didn’t sleep well and had to get up very early which was followed by a long frustrating day! Core is making forward progress and will probably the next novel I look to completing after I finish the first installment of Pilgrim’s Trail which itself is…

I left my laptop at work yesterday and wrote a quite a bit on my older work Core. It was very interesting to read the piece to get reacquainted with it. When I began writing it in 2011 I had not read Princess of Mars or seen the movie John Carter, while my plot is very different and based…
