Writing... some I can share...

Been crazy busy writing, figure why stop while it's flowing!

Just a reminder that you can get 10% off my books at through the end of the month. Just got to my store: Click on any title, add them to your cart, and then, when you are checking out, use the code JUNECONTEST10. Lulu will take 10% off of your order! But this special offer ends on June 30th.

I'm 2/3rds way through writing the romantic comedy, with an artist just starting to work on that.
May be ready to unveil the Super hero project soon...
Also writing some scripts for some shorts for Earthbound comics, using one of their characters, for one of their anthology titles. I've found it incredibly freeing to write this character, talk about flowing! I've come up with three six page short stories for them, just finishing up the third one.

Wrote a comic book review today for Marvel's "War of Kings: Ascension" issue #3. I'm really enjoying this miniseries! This third issue really surprised me in its depth. I had a chance to review it for Cosmic Book News. If you'd like to check it out, it's here:

And Alibi Jones is now in the hands of my proof reader friends! Can't wait to find out what they think, and get their corrections. Getting there...

My Hands Are Sore!

My hands hurt. I'm not even sure why I'm writing this now! Well, I do want to let you know and state for the record that the 2nd (or maybe 3rd draft) of "Alibi Jones" is complete, at the printers for readers editions for proofing! Sarah and Nate, get ready... I say 2nd or 3rd because the first handwritten draft was really scattered, so I'm not sure whether the first typed draft was 1st or 2nd... hmmm.

But I am sure the book is done. First in a new series! Alibi Jones, the title character, is the son of Bernard Campion, BC from the Vatican Assassin Trilogy. It's twenty-three years after the events of the first three books. The Solar Alliance is spreading out amongst the stars. Alibi is in the Mediator Corps, which sees him negotiating interstellar trade deals between races. An old friend disappears and Alibi goes looking for her... but all he finds is trouble!

I'm having too much fun playing in this universe. I think it's safe to say you can expect this to be the start of a new series!

Get 10% Off My Books All Month!

Just received an email this morning from Lulu. Get 10% off your purchase through the end of this month! All you need to do is enter the sale code when you check out: JUNECONTEST10.

Lulu is conducting monthly "sales contests" where the authors who sell the most books win cash prizes. Blatantly trying to drive traffic to, of course! What the heck - Didn't cost anything, so I signed up for June's contest. I received the email with news of the 10% discount this morning. All of a sudden the contest seemed worth entering.

My books at Lulu can all be found on this page, my Lulu "storefront":

I was surprised enough by the discount that I wanted to share!
