I know some don't use Facebook, so this page is meant to keep everyone in the loop regardless if they use Facebook or not. I'm active there and post every couple of days, or try to! You can click on the "Posted On" next to the avatar in any post to go to the link on Facebook.

For those looking for somethig to read or a series to check out, Patty Jansen released a new book in her Ambassador series!

Google Play finally invited me to publish with them directly. I had been going through Streetlib to publish there. One of Google Play's requirements is I had to delist from StreetLib, which is done.

I published the second edition of The Awakening, book 1 of the Evaran Chronicles, this morning to Google Play, and it's going through review. As of right now, all books are off Google Play, and if this first one goes through with no issues, I'll have another thirteen books to upload! I'll also need to update my site with the new Google Play links.

Update Time!

- I hit 81k on Rogue, book 4 of the Earthborn! There is only four scenes left, and I plan to be done with the first draft by Sunday. I still need to do the chronology for the last few chapters, but will wrap that up by next week. The next scene is the last one in the fight chapter. It's a Seth and Kal buddy chapter!

- I hit 12k on book 10 of the Evaran Chronicles. Emily's scene was intense in regards to historical research, but I like the way it turned out. Next scene involves V trying to figure out where the heck he is! Also, later in the book, Sandas makes an appearance, and I'm looking forward to writing that scene!

- I've reviewed four audio chapters on the second edition of The Awakening, book 1 of the Evaran Chronicles. I'll be caught up by next Tuesday to what Michael has sent. It's sounding great so far and I enjoy the reviewing phase. I'm a little apprehensive about the ACX updating process since it isn't nice and automated like their normal process, but I'll cross that bridge when I get there.

- I've revised six chapters of The Unification, book 9 of the Evaran Chronicles. Twenty four to go! The proofread date is June 3, so I'll need it ready by then. My proofreader said it willl be about six days, so I should get it back by June 9 or 10. After a revision phase from that, I'm hoping to get it converted and launched somewhere between June 12-15.

- I've restarted the high level outlining process for book 5 of the Earthborn, the final one in that series. I had started it before, but it needs updated. Evaran makes an appearance in the end since he foreshadowed the series event in The Shadow Connection, book 6 of the Evaran Chronicles. That will be a fun chapter to write!

I hope your day went well. One more day to the weekend!

I got a surprise today with about half the audio files for the second edition of The Awakening, book 1 of the Evaran Chronicles, being uploaded for me! I already reviewed chapters 1 and 2, so will be doing one day. There are twenty chapters, and I have files 1-9 plus the prologue and opening credits.

My daily writing-related routine so far is:

- Revise two chapters for The Unification, book 9 of the Evaran Chronicles. This is done for today.

-Review one audio chapter for the second edition of The Awakening, book 1 of the Evaran Chronicles. I'm doing chapter three now.

- Write one scene (about 1.5k words) for Rogue, book 4 of the Earthborn. Only six left to go here. The scene for today is big showdown between Blake and a new Saskarin entity.

- Write one scene for book 10 of the Evaran Chronicles. It's on for Emily and the Roman marching camp tonight!

Back to the work den with me!

I received the edited manuscript back for The Unification, book 9 of the Evaran Chronicles! The revision phase is now underway. After that is done, it goes to proofread, then it's launch time! I'm tackling 2 chapters a day, with 4 per day on the weekend, so I plan to be done with the Revision Phase by June 1. If everything lines up with the proofread, then looking at a potential launch mid June, or in about a month!

The edited blurb:

The future sometimes needs help.

Evaran and the gang receive a summons to AD 514,723, approximately two hundred years before Earth is repopulated and becomes the seat of a galaxy-spanning empire. The problem is that the process has not been started on Earth.

To make matters worse, a threat from beyond this reality has been attacking the galaxy. Evaran and crew meet the Orions, an advanced civilization that has also been a victim of this new threat.

Evaran and crew are joined by Dr. James Bryson and Kess, an Orion. Together, they will need to deal with this threat and kick-start the unification of humanity with Earth as the center.

A Small Sunday Update!

- I hit 77.5k on Rogue, book 4 of the Earthborn. I would have gotten more in, but decided after a reread of the fight to that point, that there needed to be some changes that affected the current scene I was on. It took a bit of effort, but I like where it is so far. I'm on the last major fight chapter now. After that, it's two chapters to the end!

- I hit 10.5k on book 10 of the Evaran Chronicles. Dr. Snowden meets an interesting Daedrould while Emily comes to grips with seeing a Roman marching camp being constructed. The next scene will be her investigating it and flexing her history knowledge. After that, V is up as he deals with the world of fuedal Japan.

I hope your weekend has gone well and you're ready for the week!

Thursday Update!

- I've hit 76k on Rogue, book 4 of the Earthborn. Rakar and Blake had some heavy action scenes! I'm sure when I go back over them, I'll nitpick it to death, but it's a first draft. Zane is up next and his hellthrower is primed for action!

- On book 10 of the Evaran Chronicles, I'm at 8k. Dr. Snowden is probably wishing he studied history better. The next scene will be fun to write as it explores another aspect of Daedroulds that hasn't been covered in detail before. After that, it's on to Emily!

- I heard from Michael on the audiobook for second edition of The Awakening, book 1 of the Evaran Chronicles. He's chugging along, and once done, will upload it all to me where I can then do my review.

- This Sunday will be the three week edit mark for The Unification, book 9 of the Evaran Chronicles. When I get it back, it's going to eat some time. Now watch the audiobook stuff come in at the same time!

- I was sad to watch the season five final for "The Flash" and season seven final for "Arrow", but season six of both "The 100" and "Agents of Shield" are back on!

I hope your week has been going well. Only one more day until the weekend!

Update Time!

- I hit 72.5k on Rogue, book 4 of the Earthborn. The final fight has begun, and Sarah just went through some tense moments! Now Blake is up. There are five chapters of this fight in act 3, and the first one is done. Due to the amount of groups, it's a little longer than previous fights. The target is also a lot tougher.

- I've hit 6k on book 10 of the Evaran Chronicles! It's been fun revisiting Jelton and what he's been up to since The Cosmic Parallel, book 8 of the Evaran Chronicles.

The second traveling companion for this book is Jake Melkins, and he has already boarded the Torvatta. Jelton and Jake have never formally met, so it's an interesting dynamic of former companions meeting each other and comparing notes. There will be a lot of "On it" and "My friends" for everyone!

- I haven't heard anything more on the edit for The Unification, book 9 of the Evaran Chronicles, or the audiobook for the second edtion of The Awakening, book 1 of the Evaran Chronicles, but will update you as soon as I do. There's plenty of writing and planning to be done in the meantime.

- I sometimes take a break to read or watch something interesting. In this case, I decided to watch The Umbrella Academy on Netflix. It released it's first season, and has been renewed for a second one. I really liked the first season. It has time travel, super heroes, and some very interesting characters. The premise of growing up in a superhero academy then drifting apart as real life rears its head is not new, but this take on it was intriguing.


Sunday Weekly Trivia Time!

Out of sync. You may have seen this term used here and there in the Evaran Chronicles. In the Evaranverse, It refers to when two personal timelines interact in different sequences. A good example is Sandas, the information broker. His personal timeline is out of sync with Evaran and the gang. Here is Sandas's personal timeline relative to the books:

2008 - The Human factor, book 7 of the Evaran chronicles
2012 - The Fredorian Destiny, book 2 of the Evaran Chronicles
2034 - Rimworlds, book 3 of the Earthborn

Sandas meets Evaran and the gang for the first time in book 7 yet their first time meeting Sandas is in book 2. Although not listed above, Sandas also meets some of Evaran's future forms between 2008 and 2012. By the time The Fredorian Destiny occurs from Sanda's perspective, he knows a lot about Evaran, V, Dr. Snowden, and Emily, and also knows that it will be their first time meeting him.

I love these types of twists, but they do require planning far ahead. You'll notice in The Fredorian Destiny, Sandas gives Emily a big hug because of their close friendship, much to her amusement at the time. Sandas also makes a statement about Evaran's future forms:

“You know, you loosen up over time. I forget sometimes how stiff that form is for you.”

Friday Update Time!

- I hit 69k on Rogue, book 4 of the Earthborn, and also caught up on three chapters of chronology. I'm in act 3 and the action is heating up. For those who have read Rimworlds, new units from the Android Resistance are involved, thanks to them now having a home moon.

- I hit 3.5k on book 10 of the Evaran Chronicles. Both Dr. Snowden and Emily get caught up in some action that prevents them from having taco night with Dr. Bryson and his fiance, Karen. The next chapter starts with a scene from V's perspective, and then from...Jelton Stallryn's perspective! Yes, Jelton is back. He's the first of the past traveling companions for this book. I'll mention the other when their chapter comes up! I'm also getting closer to a title for this book.

- The Unification, book 9 of the Evaran Chronicles, is in editor land. I"m looking forward to getting it back for revision mode!

- I haven't received any new audio files for the audiobook of the second editiion of The Awakening, book 1 of the Evaran Chronicles. I'm looking forward to getting them so I can begin my review of them!
