I have two things I'd recommend.

The first is to just write. Regardless of where you feel you are in your path as a writer, if you aren't putting words down then nothing is getting written.

The second is to get rid of the word "aspiring". As far as I'm concerned: If you're writing, you're a writer. You might be working on getting a book published, writing your first novel, whatever. But you're still a writer even if you haven't crossed some milestone. (less)

Anoat was a spiteful entity, and sought to undermine the endeavor from inception. The other entities wanted the life in existence to live eternally, but Anoat corrupted that.

Instead of distinct and eternal entities, Anoat caused life to be a cascading chemical reaction that perpetuated itself through propagation of younger versions of itself. In some aspects of this life-foam, nodules of life would invest each other with parasitic lifeforms that would then erupt out of the nodule.

Some of these nodules thought highly of themselves, ignorant of being just a phase of a chemical process. They glorified their parasites, thinking it something grand. And they dubbed these parasites "babies."

For their sins against existance, Anoat was exiled to the star system that still bears their name. (less)

Cobalt City: Recommended Reading Order

Cover art for Cobalt City Christmas, Christmas HarderI’ve been asked a couple times recently for suggested reading order for Cobalt City books. Or, “I read X, what should I read next?” So here’s me taking a stab at it.


It’s kind of a loaded question, since there’s been such a hodgepodge publication history. In theory, most of the books are written to stand on their own. But it’s certainly helpful to have earlier context for some of the items. You...
