I’ve been neck-deep in the best part of being a sci-fi writer, and that is writing my next book — the second book in The Ascendancy Trilogy, and Taryn’s rocket-launch into being a kick-ass heroine!
I’m so excited about book #2 I can barely rip myself away from the MS to do anything else (like blog, read, feed my kid…). If things go well, and I manage to remain functional, I’ll have this book out in your hands early next year. ^_^
So no new blog post on sci-fi or technical goodies this time, but I haven’t been completely absent either, so I give you NEWS & UPDATES:
My post on How To Create An Alien Species In 3 Stages was reblogged on SciFiIdeas.com (@) and is hopefully helping other writers with their worldbuilding. Those guys have some really crazy alien profile entries for this year’s competition!
I got interviewed by fellow writer & flaming redhead A. A. Woods (@aawoodswrites) on her blog’s Writer Wednesday feature. She had some awesome questions, and I got to talk about important things like motivation and developing your own writing process. Thanks for having me, Audrey!
I also had MY VERY FIRST PODCAST on the Resolute Writer (@) podcast and blog! I got to talk about creating aliens, developing civilizations, coming up with names, and more — and just had a lot of fun, despite the impending Alien Robot Apocalypse. Big thanks to Matt for featuring me, and I hope his followers (and you all) are not too shocked at my freaky accent! 😀
It’s been a busy couple of weeks, and still a lot more busyness to come — especially on the writing front — which makes me both very happy and very tired. I will have some more awesome news soon, but until then please excuse me while I go ENSLAVE SOME NEW WORLDS! *ahem*
