Alive After the Reading – My Interview

Standard

 

Hey Space Cadets, how’re you doing today?  I’m good, working on a map for my next super-duper secret project and writing words.  I’m telling the story of how a soldier wins his nation’s highest medal for valor, and I’ve just gotten him to the enemy planet. Things have already gone wrong, bodies are piling up, and the action is intense. Because the ideas are flowing, I wanted to keep today’s blog short and to the point. I was recently interviewed by

Book Review: Dynamo (Mech Wars Book 2)

Standard

 

Hey Space Cadets, here is the next installment in my series of book reviews. As I’ve mentioned earlier, I’m a member of the TRMN. It’s a fan club for the Honor Harrington Universe by David Weber, and they do contests for their members all the time. There is a reading contest going on recently, and we get points for page reads. I’m thrilled that it prompted me to read more, as I’ve let writing get in the way of reading!  In addition to reading more this month, I’m working on the editorial revisions for book four of The Sleeping Legion Series.  Finally, if you haven’t read it, Operation Breakout is live!

JR ExercisingHey Space Cadets, how’re y’all doing this fine day?  I’m doing great, and cranking away on the revisions to book four! I’ve also been exercising every day to clear my mind, and hopefully maybe fit back into my uniform before the decade ends! Okay, maybe that last part was a pipe dream, but I’m okay with it!  Anyway, while I walk, I like to listen to podcasts and audiobooks.  I’ll give you a list of some of the podcasts I listen to, and some good audio books in another post!  Most of my podcasts are writing related, or historical in nature, so I can inundate myself with ideas to stir the stories.  Hopefully, these podcasts are helpful!

BOOK SALE!!!

Standard

 

 LegonnaireHey Space Cadets, I just want to bring you some news about a book sale!  I figured I’ll do these posts whenever a book I reviewed or loved is on sale.  Spreading the word about good books is just the kind of community I hope to build on this blog, so I’ll shout the good ones from the roof tops!  This time, I wanted to let you know that a book I recently reviewed, Powered by Scott Bartlett, is on sale.  It has dropped from USD 2.99 to USD 0.99, quite the bargain!  Scott’s special sale is to celebrate the launch of the third book in this series, Meltdown, so I figured it was worth mentioning!!  Speaking of the new books, the third book in the series is ALSO on sale for $0.99 for a short while so check out the series!
