Concerning my time and my science fiction and fantasy writing, well things have been busy around here, more busy than I'd like to admit I guess. Back Home, Book 4 in the Alien Encounters Series is back from my editor from its first round of edits and I'm going through, making my revisions.
Lyrissa and Peggy are both back on Sylax and in a nice twist we get to see this world through both Lyrissa's and Peggy's eyes. I've never tried to write a book in two different points of view, but I do like a challenge. I read Scott Westerfeld's Levithan Series and really liked the way one character's point of view complimented the others'.
Challenge is what got me started on the Alien Encounters Series. I love Stephen King novels and the Green Mile was great. Mr. King strikes me as someone who likes to experiment with form. I was intrigued by the Green Mile's delivery method. When the book was first published it came out as a serial—I believe there were six novellas in all. Well as luck would have it that's where I intend to draw the line with the Alien Encounters; six seems like a nice round number to me.
If you follow me on twitter you've probably already seen the cover art for this book, the most recent installment in the series, however I did promise to post my cover art here, so as promised here it is.
