Queen of Bones, available now!

It is now out on Amazon, get it here! :

 

Release

Queen of bones, my fantasy adventure story, will be out on kindle in the next few days. Stay tuned!

Coming soon

Just finished another pass through on Oasis, the bonus story I’m putting with Queen of Bones. Once I get the okay from my editor, I’ll be able to put them out on Kindle sometime in the next month!

Next up is the novella, which has been sitting on my plate for nearly three years. It’s going to feel really good when I finally get that thing in reading condition.

I’ve been having a hard time writing lately, and have only been doing editing. I think I need to take a step back and write something smaller and more contained. Making things so huge all the time may be holding me back, since I end up  never finishing any of it…

Hope you all  had a nice holiday. Make some big plans for next year!

Happy Christmas!

Time for the new year! I’m sure I had some writing resolutions last year, but I don’t remember what they were. I think something crazy like submit 100 stories, or something. If you hadn’t noticed, I haven’t been submitting many stories anymore. I got so tired of the long wait, that I pretty much will submit a story to only 3 or 4 places that all respond pretty quick before I give up on it and set it aside for reworking, or get it ready for self publishing if I really believe in it.

This year I plan to do a lot more reviewing, of books and movies. So far I’ve only been reviewing the ones that really stand out to me or make an impact on me, but for this year, I want to review every single movie I watch, even if it’s something old. I guess the only exception would be if I’ve already seen it, but even then I may try to have a go at it with a fresh perspective.

I also want to review every book I read (or listen to) this year. And though I want to read a lot more of them than I did this past year, I sort of doubt I’ll have the time.

So, look forward to much more regular posts featuring me rambling about a movie or book!

Hope you all have a nice holiday, and write something!

Cyborgs on the horizon

As the world of sci fi continues to invade real life, this week a double amputee was able to control two robotic arms simultaneously using only his mind. These are arms he was wearing on his body, walking around with, with no wires leashing him to a nearby computer or anything like that. These are arms he could use as a part of his own body.

I wonder, how far will this technology go? Surely there are many soldiers with similar injuries. Could it become commonplace to see people walking the streets with robotic limbs? What about someone with no arms or legs? With all four limbs robotic, their body-mass would be more mechanical than biological. What would that mean?

Imagine someone paralyzed from the neck down choosing to have their limbs amputated to be replaced with robotic ones. Or maybe they would choose to stay in bed, and mentally control some kind of robotic avatar.

No matter what direction this technology goes, I don’t think it’s going to be long before cyborgs and robots walking the streets becomes mundane.
