I expect to be doing it, so that means during that time I write, or attend to writing business. Even if I only write 50 words, or if I edit away 500 words, it's still writing. If one project has me completely stymied, or I don't want to work on that one, I have other ideas I can switch to which might flow easier.(less)

The first one focuses on a group of merchants traveling between homeworlds and the second focuses on Origon and a new space-faring invention.
I'm also reworking an unrelated fantasy novel set in a land like the antebellum southern plantation culture of the US mixed with Babylonian themes.(less)

Fruits of the Gods is out!

Hello everyone! Today, NineStar Press releases Fruits of the Gods, my first non-Dissolutionverse book. This is an epic fantasy, a little darker in tone than my previous books. It was certainly the hardest book to write so far.
Sisters Kisare and Belili uproot an ancient box in their owner’s orchard and find a miracle inside: a fifth godfruit in a society that knows only four.
