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…

August 22, 2022 Beta Reader Review Update

Got lots of good feedback from my military SciFi novel MILK RUN beta readers on the idea to change the 17th scene (Standoff!).  The change happens when our hero, Captain Toby Louis is relieved of command on the destroyer class spaceship, USS Princeton, by his second in command, Commander John Emerson.  Some might call it mutiny.  Others might call it saving the ship, its crew and mission.  (Hey!

That got the writing juices flowing again as I put fingers to keyboard and continued the…

MILK RUN- The Wrap Up

Wrap Up!  That’s the last bone of our story—MILK RUN.   Coming right after the climax, this is typically where loose ends are tied up to close the story, where we learn the fate of the principal characters: Captain Xxxxx Topy, Chief of the Boat George Stockton, Dr. Smriti Xxxxx, Dr. Susan Connor.  (Yes, I still need to figure out complete names for some of these characters.) There’s not much more to say about Commander John Emerson…
