Our brains have many ways of tricking us into procrastinating. It's my belief that writer's block is one of them. I don't allow myself the option of experiencing it. I don't wait until inspiration strikes, or I'm in the mood to write. Even if I have no idea what to write, I just start writing. (less)

Hi Brent

Thanks! I'm so glad you enjoyed Starbound. I've released three box sets of the Shadows of the Void series. Unfortunately Amazon's product page setup doesn't allow me to show them alongside the individual books. But you can search for them. They're called The Galathea Chronicles, The Earth Chronicles and The Galactic Chronicles. Put my name into the search bar too.
If you're patient and would like to read the entire series at once, I'll be releasing a 10-book box set later in 2018 on Kobo and via Payhip.
I love Jas' tenacity too. She needs plenty of it during the Shadows of the Void series.(less)
