Bob Blanton has been an avid reader ever since his mother first took him to a library at age five. He has toyed with writing for years since college but was always too busy to start a novel. The "stone series" developed almost by itself as he was trying to sleep on long flights to Asia and Europe. He managed to write it and two follow-on novels while he was working, but never had the time to polish them. After he retired to the beach in Mexico, the only thing that competes with writing is the sound of the ocean and sunsets over the water. Now that he has published his series, he hopes you enjoy reading them as much as he has had writing them. Check back for other books as he continues to ply his new trade.

 I finally finished the first draft of the Fourth Stone Novel.  I still need to pick a title:)


Now I need to let it sit for a week before I being the first polishing draft.  Then the Editors get to hack away at it:(

I hope it will be ready before March.

“We have noted that because of your political splintering and your advanced weaponry, your civilization is not expected to survive nor move beyond your home planet.”
Bob Blanton, Starship Sakira

“No, I mean that once you finish your education, you’ll work as a nurse.  You’ll pay taxes that will fund the government; you’ll help the community, and that will pay back your education costs.  If the government doesn’t help you get an education, you won’t be able to get a job and pay taxes.  In the long run, the government comes out ahead.”
Bob Blanton, Delphi Station

“over.”
Bob Blanton, Delphi Alliance
