My novel is a dramatic epic fantasy (cover below), with a novella-length intro now available as an ebook. I blog about the writing life at:

http://sciencefictionfantasybooks.net

You can find the novella at Amazon and Smashwords. Below, you'll find a YouTube video with my reading of the first chapter of my novel. The first chapter is also on my GoodReads profile.

When I was ten, I fell in love with an anime series: a space opera spanning three human generations, one that unfolded over 85 consecutive episodes and four months of after-school TV. Watching Robotech was a spiritual experience for me. I still remember how high I felt after watching the final episode for the first time. How many pleasures in life are better than a well-executed drama

We’ve decided to write our next series together, but we have to finish our current series first …

“NEVER GIVE UP
No matter what is going on
Never give up
Develop the heart
Too much energy in your country
Is spent developing the mind
Instead of the heart
Be compassionate
Not just to your friends
But to everyone
Be compassionate
Work for peace
In your heart and in the world
Work for peace
And I say again
Never give up
No matter what is going on around you
Never give up”
Dalai Lama XIV

A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K. Le Guin
“You thought, as a boy, that a mage is one who can do anything. So I thought, once. So did we all. And the truth is that as a man's real power grows and his knowledge widens, ever the way he can follow grows narrower: until at last he chooses nothing, but does only and wholly what he *must *do . . .”

seak Hi Moses. I finally put up a post about your Michael Sullivan interview. Sorry for the delay, I saw it and thought I'd get back to it, but completely spaced it instead. :) You guys do a great job btw.


Alicia Thanks for the friend request! I'm happy to meet you (virtually anyway).

Thanks very much, Vinaya! I hope to have it available next month. I'm really looking forward to hearing how some Indians respond to it. One of the nations is a combination of ancient Greek, Roman, and Middle Eastern cultures; they all have Italian names, though. They have a pantheon of ten gods, a la ancient Greece.

The other is sort of like a Buddhist India; their powers come from a non-theistic approach to meditation. They've got names like Narayani, Rao, Devak, and Indrajit :-)


Vinaya Thank you for the friend request, Moses! You've definitely piqued my interest about your novel! I'll look forward to reading it! :)

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I hope to have a full version of my novel ready for beta readers some time before the end of January. I have a novella-length intro available now (carved out of material from the novel), but if you're interested in reading the larger version you could also just wait for that.


Bradley Thank you for adding me as a friend. I too love Robotech. I have rewatched the three sagas all together many times. I even played the roleplaying game. If you are in need of someone to review your work, I would be honoured to look over your story and spread the news. Okay, I am geeked to add someone who appreciates a good show. Please feel free to sling me a message. Maybe we can enough trade writing tips. =)
