Even though I haven’t been working on the 5th book very much lately, this series is still “my baby.” I know Steigan’s life from birth to death. I know how his family and friends mourn him. Not all of this is in the books — partially because I have promised that the series here will have a happy ending and because I don’t like stories where the characters die.

There’s a moment in Manifest the Magic when Keteria begins to see her twin brother as someone other than the person she thought he was. She confronts him with this question:
I always wanted to work in a little more about her wondering if Tanold considered Keteria as something to possess or kill. Would she be afraid that her twin would harm her? Yeah, maybe some day I’ll write a little side story about that.
Set up for VIP night. The con starts tomorrow at 3:00. Hope to see you there.
I am often asked which of my books is my favorite.
Unfair question! (grin)
For starters, it’s akin to asking which of your children is your favorite. Secondly, the excitement is always tied up in the books a writer is currently working on, not the ones that are published. Once I’m satisfied with an adventure and its released, I’m moving on to the next one. Now, since I usually write 3-5 different stories at a time, yes, I do have a favorite at that point — it’s always the one being the easiest to write!
However, when pressed for an answer, at this moment in time, my favorite is To Birth a Destiny. Granted, one has to read the first 2 book in the series to get there, but it is the book I love. Read the rest of this entry »
I probably should have written this during the morning when I was all pumped up and ecstatic. I’m starting to feel that this is a Sunday routine for me where I start the day all excited and by the time I sit down to write this, I’m depressed as can be. Yes, honest moment there.
And yes, I often have to pick myself back up to write this blog.
There’s a big fly in my office and I wish it would die. I want it to get trapped in a spiderweb and become dinner for another species I don’t particularly like. Yeah, it’s that kind of depression day.
Maybe it’s the episode of Star Trek: TNG that I had on a little while ago. Maybe it’s just a cycle that I go through. Maybe I feel that I’m not as productive on Sundays as I wish I were and I imagine myself being during the rest of the week. Maybe it’s the story I’m writing that now has me emotionally tapped. Maybe I intuitively feel that I’m not doing something right in my life and this is when it tries to surface. Maybe I need more time off to recharge. Maybe I see all that needs to get done that I haven’t gotten to. Maybe I feel like this is a record of what I got done while I let other things in my life go by the wayside knowing I should be tackling these tasks too.
Yeah, this is how I feel on Sunday evenings. Read the rest of this entry »
Adventuring in time and space has been a week of dodging laser bullets and maintaining radio silence. What a week.
Oh yes, I have many great notes on it.
This week’s adventures have included hanging out with a ninja-to-be. Shhh! He doesn’t know he’s on the path to becoming a ninja, but it is the third origin story. When I hang out with Alex Dent, I must be super quiet. The world they are on have an unknown, but very deadly entity on it. All the soldiers on this planet they hope to colonize are scared.
