It's been a criminally long time since I've updated this blog, I know. A shame! But I've been busy writing, which is a good thing. Right now, no pun intended, I'm working on a book under a pen name so I won't be starting A Venus Affair until next month some times. The outline for it however, is finished.
A Venus Affair will be the last "alien-of-the-week" books in the Mission series. It's tangentially related to the main mytharc and will fill in some details from other characters and plots in the previous books. It may seem a little weird to have Bob go off on a big family vacation to Venus right before the you-know-what hits the fan between aliens and humans but I promise, this story needs to happen inbetween what has already transpired and what will happen later on. By the way, for those of you wondering about how many books are left? There are three books left in the Mission series: A Venus Affair, Phoenix Rising and Future Fantastic.
I'll be going on vacation next week and I'm already on vacation at home this week, getting some much needed relaxation and reading and writing done. I'm mentally planning another scifi series, this time a science fiction detective-noir series. Think Warren Hammond's Kop series with some mysticism and knighthood thrown in for good measure. I love the emotional depths that fantasy brings so yes, my science fiction may have some psuedo fantasy elements in it. That's how I roll. That's just me. I also have some up coming posts about just stuff that interests me, like Diana Gabaldon's wonderful John Gray series that I'm currently enjoying, why I no longer like the BBC's new Sherlock series and why I'll stick with Granada's Jeremey Brett and also Basil Rathbone - my two favorites - and what I'm looking forward to seeing - The Hollow Crown (The War of the Roses). Anyway, that's all I have to say for now. Hopefully not everyone is irked by my podcast episodes. besides the occasional free book, it's a way for me to give out free content to people who sign up to the mailing list. After all, I don't send emails out that often anyway and there's always the choice to delete the email if you're not interested. It's not that hard, folks!
And now I'm off for water aerobics!
