MILK RUN Update

Hi All! It’s taking me a bit longer to complete the next scene chapter for my new military SciFi novel MILK RUN. That’s because, unlike the other scenes posted, this is literally a brand new scene. The earlier scenes were created about six years ago. But I got writer’s block and things got real busy at the office. So, I stopped the project. Picking up where I left off, those scenes required less rework and…

Make A MILK RUN Scene Ending Choice

First of all, I want to welcome all the new folks who recently indicated an interest in MILK RUN! Thanks and I hope you enjoyed the beginning of MILK RUN. Just to review, MILK RUN is a military SciFi novel about a young captain fresh out of space command school on his first mission as captain of the USS Princeton, an old destroyer class spacecraft. But what our hero thought would be an easy first…

Invite to Review GOD GAMES & An Alaskan Inspiration for a MILK RUN SciFi Adventure

OK, I’ll keep this short and sweet. Three things to tell you: I just got back from a wonderful vacation in Alaska that included a scenic train ride between Fairbanks and Anchorage, a lake cruise right up to a calving glacier in Portage and some flying over the marshland ending with stellar air pic of Anchorage and backdrop mountains. That got the writing juices flowing again as I put fingers to keyboard and continued the…

Back to Writing After Six Long Years

After a a six-year hiatus, I’ve picked up from where I left off on writing MILK RUN!  Before then, everything was going fine till I ran into the dreaded writer’s block.  The story felt flat and typical, and I didn’t like that.   So, in 2016, I stopped everything, including publishing the already completed HEAVEN’S ANT FARM SciFi novel to the bookstores.   I guess I just needed to clear my head a bit.   Besides, I was…

The 77 Challenge

Hey authors, suppose someone goes to the bathroom and while there opens your book. But not at the beginning. They just start reading from any old random place in your book. Will they get some idea of what your book is about by perusing just a few random lines?  Will they want to read more? Or will they use the pages for something else having just realized there’s no toilet paper in the stall? Hey…

Judge Jehoel and the Cherubim Commander- Playing Card

In GOD GAMES, all the characters are named after biblical angels, although I did take some liberties as is the norm in SciFi.  In general, I used an angel’s name whose description came close to matching the trait of a particular character.   Each playing card features two main GOD GAMES characters reflecting their role in the book and their relationship to each other.   Check out this blog post for more information on how I named…
