Rogue

Book 4 of the Earthborn

Underestimate Earthborn at your own peril.

The Exceltion crew has been tasked with finding Bothan, a presidential guard commander, and his crew. The problem is that Blake Brown is missing.

To make matters worse, the Saskarin-controlled Shulon fleet has abandoned their empire to protect the remote Jeezarus system. Not only does the Exceltion crew need to find out what’s going on there, but they also need to find Blake.

The crew will have to adapt to new roles to locate Bothan and Blake while dealing with the Saskarins. One thing is for sure: never underestimate Earthborn.

Wednesday Update Time!

- I sent off the manuscript, blurb, and front/back matter for The Portal Effect, book 10 of the Evaran Chronicles, to my professional editor late last night. For the last two days, I focused on a final readthrough and tweaked a few things, but believe it's in good shape. Now it's a waiting game! Like other books, this will probably be in professional edit for three weeks, and is on track for a release mid to late next month!.

- Due to the final passes on The Portal Effect, I didn't get much writing in on Redemption, book 5 of the Earthborn. I did however hit 32.5k. I'll be focusing on this now that I'm not in review mode.

I talked with Tom on covers and there seemed to be a mixup in scheduling. The cover will now start on November 3, and I'll get it back sometime in December, along with the box set cover. That's fine as this is looking like a January release.

- I've scheduled covers for Books 11 & 12 for the Evaran Chronicles for 2020. The new series will not be as intensive coverwise so I'll be looking for a second cover designer to hit those. This also allows for better scheduling. I seem to have unintentionally moved to a two person per role setup in editing, profreading, and cover design. I won't be doing that in Audio though! There is only one Michael Pauley!

- As I've been reading through the Dresden files, I ask myself, what would my new series protagonist do? As the theme is heavy on tech and science, in a world of nonhumans and aliens on Earth, it depends on the protagonist's origin, personality, and skillset. There is also the Evaran link and of course, the power players and factions like the Ancient Vampires and the Earth Ward to factor in.

There's a lot to chew on in those thought experiments, but that's always the fun part! While the protagonist is tough relative to a human, it will be his awareness, intelligence, knowledge, ability to reason, and technology that guides him.

I hope your week has been going well! Back to the writing den with me!
