Continuing to work on my spaceship

I’m still hacking away at the render for the Heaven vessels. Here’s my latest:      

I now haz agent

Yeah, little bit of a curve ball in the ol’ long-term plans. I still haven’t figured out how I managed it, but I now have an agent for We are Legion. Of course, this means the schedule’s gone all bust, but c’est la vie. I am now signed with The Ethan Ellenberg Literary Agency.   …

New video clip of Bob’s travels

I’ve created a new video clip from my Stellarium app, of the various Bobs’ travels through near space. This is for We are Legion. I changed Mario’s destination from GL 41, which was too far, to Beta Hydri. This works a little better with the overall timing of the novel. I’ve also reworked the app …

Done and almost done

I’ve finished writing Legion. Which is not to say, I’ll be publishing tomorrow. It means I’ve finished adding plot. Now I have to go through a couple of edit passes. I tend to use certain words too much: just, fairly, appear.. minimizing words. I see it as dry understatement, readers see it as wimpy. Sigh. …

Work continues

Update on my spaceship WIP. I’ve changed the texture and cross-section, and I think it looks a little less toy-like now. The little flying things are ship-busters. The one in the foreground is just a primitive that I didn’t delete.     The novel itself is over 60k, and has gone out to a couple …

Starting Alpha Readers

I’ve now gotten myself a couple of alpha readers for Legion. The story is at 60K words, and I want to see if there are parts that I’ve skimped on. Ideally I’d like to have it at 80K for release, but in the end it’ll be the size that it needs to be. Postings have …

Blurb for “We are Legion”

Here’s the blurb for We are Legion (We are Bob), final or close to it. Bob Johansson has hit the jackpot. He’s just sold his software company and is looking forward to a life of leisure. There are places to go, books to read, and movies to watch. So it’s a little unfair when he …

Status Update

New web page up (satisfaction level rising), story developing, CC entries submitted. Doing good.  

Progress Report

I’ve got a lot of balls in the air right now. Legion, obviously. I lost about a month of writing while I was working on all the side projects, but I’m starting to get back on track. The spaceship design thing was a huge time sucker. The real cost is learning Blender, which is a …

I am here!

Hi everyone! (I can’t decide if that’s ironic or not) As you can see, I now have my own domain. Woo hoo! It’s going to be a bit of a slog for a while, but eventually I’ll get this puppy organized. I’ll also be bringing over my posts from my earlier blog. I guess I’ll …
