Interview: Freefall author Felix R. Savage

Today I have with me science fiction author, Felix R. Savage who generously agreed to sit down with me for a virtual interview. I recently read through Freefall, the first book in your Earth’s Last Gambit Series, and came away with a bunch of questions. I was hoping you’d share some of your secrets with me and my… Read More »

Furtive Announcement

Hello. I’m afraid I don’t know how much time we have, so I must be brief. There’s a new science fiction anthology out, called Explorations: War. It’s a collection of stories set in the same shared universe as the Explorations: First Contact anthology. I think it’s pretty keen, and that’s not just because I’m one of the authors.… Read More »

Book 4 Progress Report, Puppo Edition

I have a couple of blog posts percolating, chiefly my next Scrivener Howto, but brain time is presently very precious. I have started work on Book 4, albeit a few days behind. We have a new dog, Zeke, who demands a lot of attention. And that’s is all right by me. We’re learning to cope with teething and… Read More »

Trajectory Book 1 reaches v3.0!

Today I put the finishing touches on a new set of edits for Trajectory Book 1 and sent it forth into the cloud. This is probably the biggest update since v2.0, which was itself a fairly major milestone in the book’s existence. I can say with total certainty that today it’s a better book than it was when… Read More »

Book 3 Cover Update

(View featured image, Sol 1381 Panorama full size on flickr) Ok, yesterday’s “cover tease” post was pretty light on details. I probably could have added some content but I was in a hurry and wanted to post something. It was time. Anyway, long-time pal and internet funny guy, @dolske guessed that the image was constructed from a series… Read More »

On editing. No, really, I am going to talk about editing.

My last post I did mention that I was in the semi-last stages of editing the new book. I’m about a third of the way through it, and hope to finish this phase this week. On top of that, I have a few minor developmental changes to make based on some feedback from some people who were nice… Read More »

On editing (not really, it’s about Mastodon)

Don’t you hate blog posts or articles that start with the subject, “On [SOMETHING]”? I know I do! I was going to write a thing about how editing books is hard because you have to look at each thing and think about it. After a thousand of these things, I have begun to stare obliquely at a comma… Read More »
