Standard
 Hello, Space Cadets! Today, I wanted to introduce you to another author from my WARRIOR WEEKEND INTERVIEW SERIES. Kyle is an Air Force Veteran, a husband, father, a student, and now an Author. When he isn’t slaving away at the keyboard creating fantasy worlds. You can usually find him reading a good book at the pool with his kids, or working on the next short fiction piece for his portfolio. When Kyle got out of the military, he moved from New Jersey to Florida in the hope he would never see snow again. Never one to settle for okay when he could be exceptional, he began attending Full Sail University to gain an MFA in Creative Writing. His hobbies include reading, writing, and getting walked by his German shepherd Eddy all over the neighborhood in the wee hours of the night. Recently Kyle had a flash fiction piece accepted to Down in the Dirt Magazine, the piece will be featured in the Jan 2018 issue of the Magazine.

FAMILY TIME

Standard

Tranquility 4JR HandleyHey Space Cadets, how’re ya’ll doing on this fine day?  I’m doing great, working hard on edits for a short story and book four!  I’m excited to see how the story ends before moving on to the next project. During this time, when I don’t have deadlines beating me about the head and shoulders, I took some family time.  Took my bride on the date to Red Lobster, killed my diet and one meal, and generally have been having a blast! Okay, I know that some people might suggest that it’s a little low rent, but chain restaurants are budget friendly. Maybe if the next book sells like hotcakes, I’ll try a “real” seafood place.  I’m told that I’m a bad representation of the Tidewater Region of Virginia because I’ve never had lobster.  Eventually, I will fix this, but only after we keep the power on!

Standard

Hello, Space Cadets! Today, I wanted to introduce you to another author from my WARRIOR WEEKEND INTERVIEW SERIES.  I am knee deep in rewrites on book four of my Sleeping Legion series.  I really hate all that red ink.  Other than that all is moving along well in my life.  They figured out most of what was up with my wife – now they just have to figure out the treatment.  The only other thing on the agenda is to take my son out tomorrow to see the eclipse – since I have nothing else to add lets talk about today’s featured veteran.  We are talking to author Sandra J. Yearman.

Book Four Updates

Standard

 

JR HandleyHey Space Cadets, how’re ya doing on this fine August day?  I just wanted to give you a quick update on where we are with book four.  Right now Boss Man and I are still batting around ideas for a title for the book, since Maternal Vengeance wasn’t the best fit.  I can promise you that as soon as we know, you will!  We do know that the cover won’t change since we want a continuous look across all of them.  I think that the editing and rewriting for this book will take longer than the others, but it’ll be a good learning experience for me. I have to worry about tying up all the plot threads that I strung along, and linking the series back into the final Continue reading

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 bonus points for reading authors who are on the TRMN Author List. And, if those authors will be at the 2017 Honor Con, we get even more points! So, you’ll see my next several reviews on books by Chris Kennedy, Marko Kloos and David Weber before I get back to Richard Fox’s Ember Wars Continue reading

I AM BACK!!!

Standard

Hey Space Cadets, I hope you’re doing well!  I just wanted to give everyone a quick update on Team Handley, before I get back to the grind.  And I know – I said I would be out offline for a week; however, in my defense, my admin person took a vacation.  Now, onto other news – I’ve just finished a short story I’ve titled LZ New Birth, and set in a world that’s been flitting around inside my head for a few years.  It’s in the universe I intend to write in once I finish co-writing The Odera Chronicles with Corey, my soon-to-be co-writer.  It was already submitted, so now we wait!  Once I know more, I’ll let you know what’s happening with this story.  I’m currently going over the first round of edits for the last book in the Sleeping Legion Series and working on a novella for another anthology.  Afterward, it’s full speed ahead with Odera!
