just map it

Like I said yesterday, I am probably going to start writing Betrayals on Monday.

I did finish mapping out a physical map of my 12 Worlds Universe for if and when I write in that world again. Again, "Worlds" is a relative term for 12 actual systems. Planets and outposts exist within each system. Waiting took place on Artemis Space Station which is in the Core along with Earth.

Anyway, I had fun putting it together. I'm working on aspects over the next days and weeks as well. Plus, I'm looking at some other setups for other writing projects as well.

I'm just mapping it.

The Sabbath

No writing on Betrayals today. I'm looking to start up on Episode 6 of Where are our Children on Monday.

Back to the Job today.

I have, however, been working on the backstory of my next project (to be named later)

I'm getting a lot done that arena.

Wish me luck.

And enjoy the rest of the Sabbath.

A Wonderful Day Indeed

Nothing much to add to my title today.

Merry Xmas to all.

Oh yea, I'm watching the Dark Knight Returns. This is the animated version of Frank Miller's classic from the 1980's.

OMG it's wonderful.

I could only WISH to write a tale this good.

It is a wonderful day indeed.

No Christmas Messages and I Mean it

Well we are almost there.

Yep, the most wonderful day of the year is upon us.

And I refuse to give any kind of Christmas message. I mean it. I'm not the type. And you guys don't know my at any personal level to get anything out of it from my anyway.

I mean Christmas messages are so dull and corny.

I won't go there.

I won't.

I'll just give thanks for all the standard things: Family, health, a better than average roof over my head, friends, and stuff like that.

From a business point I can point to five more published works than last year. I can say that I have 2 audio books and 5 trade paperbacks out as well.

I'm thankful for Where are our Children. I'm thankful that it helped me get back into writing. I'm thankful for all those have enjoyed reading it. I'm thankful for my other works being rekindled because of this work being out there.

I'm thankful I'm over half way done with this project.

I'm thankful that I have ideas for other projects on the horizon.

Merry Christmas to each and every one of you who support me by downloading my stuff and reading this blog or my tweets.

I'm thankful that I didn't deliver the standard Christmas Message.

And I mean that.

in the Public Domain

I got Zero Hour uploaded to Amazon today. That means that the trade paperback will be ready on Amazon's site for ordering.

Now with that completed the latest in the Where are our Children should be available at most outlets. It took a bit to get it there, but it's there. Enjoy.

Well, now that I'm over half way through this series, I'm looking forward some.

Real briefly, I've had some interest of what is available in the public domain.

The reason being, is that a series or two that could make some interesting use of. I've got some more investigating to do. I'm just in the preliminary stages of a couple of projects, but I'm excited.

And when I get out. (smile)

From a short story point of view, these series could last years.

You stay tuned.

I'll watch the public domain.

Let's see what we could get done together.

Having a Google Day

I repeat myself a lot here so here we again.

I can't compare my downloads to anyone else because I can't view what is going on with anyone else's books. I only have the standards of previous downloads to go. And by comparison of first downloading, Zero Hour is a success especially considering that it debuted on a Sunday, which has been a slow reading day over at Smashwords.

Either someone, somewhere, likes this series or they are faking it very well. (smile)

Again thanks for the support and downloads.

I've got the latest episode uploaded at Kobo as well and I'm going to try to get Google Play/Books done as well today.

I haven't talked much about Google since I started publishing over there but I think I should start changing that fact. My books do far better than they do at ITunes (especially fiction). It is also neat that you get to see the countries that are doing the downloading as well. Good stuff to be sure.

Anyway, I feel great for a lot of reasons: Got a power nap after work last night which was my best this weekend. Zero Hour did very well in the 24 hours or so that it has been up. And I did some brainstorming a two or three series that I believe could be successful as either short tales of fiction or novels, we'll see.

Anyway, I'm out of here for today.

Have a Google of a day.

Wait Times

Happy Sunday

I hope everyone is having a wonderful, safe holiday.

I hope I can contribute to the fun.

The Zero Hour is up at Smashwords.

No wait times.

Go download it when you like.
