I started writing when I was young, but then again, I was a busy body who was into programming, drawing, writing, reading, sports, video games, and of course martial arts … all around the time I hit puberty. Right now I have old binders and folders with stories that I wrote back then, most heavily influenced by the video games I played, others were just things I made up to read to my little brother at night.
I hold no romantic feelings towards writing, at least not beyond that of your average...

With Wireless now in stores online, I took some time to sweep up my edits and share one of the possibilities that made it into the book. Tricia the android had two important men in her life and I wanted to start the third book with telling the reader where either of them were. Out of Stephen and Brad, the latter made the cut, and a flashback of his life is what makes the prologue to Wireless. Stephen’s chapter is what you will be reading belo...

Helga opened her eyes. She didn’t know how long she had been out, but the large grey moon was now all that she could see.
“Armor on, check your gear, and let’s get ready to thype some lizard tails, Nighthawk!” Cage shouted. Helga gave him a look of surprise. The stoic Master Chief had been replaced with a rowdy, backslapping leader. His gusto was met with approval from the men as they pulled on their armor and checked their weapons.
Helga looked over at Cruser and he was gearing up too, but w...

When people think of writers, I often wonder if the old image of someone bent over a typewriter still comes to mind.
You know exactly what I’m talking about, don’t you? Older person, bent with age and life’s hardships, brows knitted, cigarette barely hanging on to his/her lip, and a cold cup of coffee next to their stack of papers.
Mentally a lot of us are still that poor, bent creature, bleeding onto the pages that creative life source. But outwardly we’re not, getting words down is convenie...

Since starting The Sigma Imperative, I’ve wanted to write about 2,500 words a day. Why? Well, I have other things to write—to be quite honest—and they are like little voices inside of my head, constantly repeating, “Are you finished yet?”
When I’m on, I’m on, and 2,500 is a breeze, but with this third book I’m having a lot of breaks, some voluntary but most involuntary. Just last week hurricane Irma came through and wrecked the West Indies like a bull in a China shop. It isn’t even funny, the...

A short story by Greg Dragon
I’m dying young, feeling my strong hands wither away. What can I say? The irony of my position has caused me to take a comical stance despite this grim reality. One hundred and thirty years inside of this body. Well, more like one hundred and nine if we were to separate my years with warm blood from those with cold. Cold is better by the way, just in case you were wondering.
No… was. It was better. That was until I chose ambition over my free and wonderful life as...

I can’t believe I’m here already, finishing up the rough draft for the sequel to, The Judas Cypher. This was a grittier take on a futuristic story, inspired by my love for cyberpunk and detective stories. I started writing The Judas Cypher for National Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) 2016, and while I’ve kept my entries—in the past—to the 50,000 words required to “win” the event, I used it as a launchpad this round.
Stepping away from sequels to my current books, I wanted to try something new, so a...

From the author: This is a chapter that was originally cut from Anstractor Vestalia. It was meant to show the type of warriorthat a Jumper/Phaser was, and how incredibly difficult they are to defeat. Camille YAN is one of the prominent characters in The New Phase, but this was a little too much for the book so it had to be cut. I hope that if you enjoy it you would consider giving Anstractor Vestalia or Blade of The Lucan a read.
“Generally speaking, the Way of the warrior is resolute accepta...

Although 2016 has sucked, HARD, for taking away many of the artists and celebrities that I grew up loving, it has been a wonderful year for me as a writer. It has been a huge year for collaboration, and I’ve gotten to know some really cool guys and gals who are great storytellers and people in general.
The point of this post (for me) is to summarize everything that has been done this year, just to put it all in perspective. For any new writers that are curious as to why I got into so many pro...

A short story by Suenammi Richards
He knew he needed to just keep running no matter what. His legs pumped but it seemed like he wasn’t making any ground. He didn’t know why the Gudha was chasing him and he didn’t have time to consider it. Nor did he have time to contact the Nitya who he had learned often defended humans against such persecution from other alien species. It all looks so good on matra sites when you infuse them but the actuality was no organization moved that fast. But life was...
