Marine Monday: Stork Class Shuttle

Standard

space-warrior

Hey Space Cadets, how’re you doing today?  I’m sucking wind, trying not to self-destruct from a Daylight Savings Time gone horribly wrong.  Tell me again why this is necessary?  Sigh, back to other more pleasant things.  I’ve finished the developmental edits of No Marine Left Behind with my editor, Corey.  Now the piece of literary excellence is off to Thomas and his Red Pen of Doom for a final copy edit.  I hope to have more information about that one to you soon.  My editing team’s also deep into their edits for Operation Breakout, and I should be publishing it next month.  More updates and publishing news to come soon.

 

You can still get the prequel novella, The Demons of Kor-Lir, by signing up for my newsletter.  Also, Boss Man has a new short story coming out for free if you sign up for his newsletter and I recommend it!  I’ll be sending out a newsletter soon with more information, but until then let’s move on to today’s Marine Monday.  Hopefully you’ll enjoy the journey!

 

Today I was leaked, by our friendly neighborhood LegionLeak source, the official vehicle stats of the Stork Class Shuttle. Enjoy the read, but please remember to destroy this message after reading it so the anonymous source can live long enough to continually feed us excellent intelligence!  Without further ado, here is the leaked document!

Hopefully you enjoyed this sneak peek into one of the most prolific classes of shuttles in the Human Legion.  If you did, stay tuned for next week as we anxiously wait for the latest documents smuggled our way!

 

 

Until next time, stay frosty and don’t forget to keep your powder dry!

Hey Space Cadets, how’re you doing today?  I’m doing good, coming down from my editing high.  Corey and I just spent four hours reading through the first 14 chapters of Operation Breakout, with another longer session planned for tomorrow to get through to chapter 30.  Tomorrow I also have an interview with The Listeners of the Dead Robot Society, one of my favorite podcasts!  I’ll share before it goes live, though I won’t know the exact date right away.  And I’ll try not to look too much like an idiot, I promise!!  Finally, I’ve made good progress on my submission for the Four Horsemen Anthology.

 

Now, on to today’s Marine Monday!  For today’s chat let’s talk about what was leaked to me by our friendly neighborhood LegionLeak source!  We have the official bio of Field Marshal Tirunesh Nhlappo.  Now the important parts!  Remember, destroy this message after reading it so the anonymous source can live long enough to continually feed us excellent intelligence!  Without further ado, here is the leaked document!

Marine Monday: Zempi Milisyen-Hoia

Standard

jr-handley-header

Hey Space Cadets, how is everyone today?  I’m great, I’ve finished my first Sleeping Legion short story and am starting another in the Four Horsemen universe before jumping into book four. I’ll be co-writing with Corey Truax, my current editor, and fellow author and Mesopotamian Veteran. This story is the tale of an intergalactic bounty hunter, with loads of shenanigans and insanity to follow.  If this co-writing works out, Corey and I will write a new series, which we’ve titled “The Odera Chronicles.”

 

Okay, so on to our regularly scheduled Marine Monday! Today I was leaked, by our friendly neighborhood LegionLeak source, the official bio of New Order Janissary Zempi Milisyen-Hoia. Now the important parts!  Remember, destroy this message after reading it so the anonymous source can live long enough to continually feed us excellent intelligence!  Without further ado, here is the leaked document!

Marine Monday: Sashala Kraevoi

Hey Space Cadets, how is everyone today?  I’m great, I have my wife and mother just finished making their final pass through Operation Breakout before I send it out to my editors, Corey and Thomas.  I’m VERY excited to get that to market and see what readers think of the book.  I’m currently 6k words into a short story, which I’ve tentatively titled “No Marine Left Behind” and I’m very excited about it.  It was my first attempt at a purposely written short story, and my writing progress has improved because of it.  It’s been through one developmental editing pass, and if you need to know more about that you can read about it from my editor by clicking here.

 

After I finish, I’ll be co-writing another short story for an anthology with best-selling author Chris Kennedy.  My new co-author will be Corey Truax, my current editor and fellow Mesopotamian Veteran.  Yes, you are right to imagine the shenanigans which will follow!  I’ll tell you more about it as we get closer but I will be finishing my Sleeping Legion Series before I jump into anything after my current two short stories.  When I need a break from Maternal Vengeance, I’ll hop over onto a few short stories, but then I want to charge full bore towards the Sleeping Legion Finish Line!

 

Okay, so on to our regularly scheduled Marine Monday! Today I was leaked, by our friendly neighborhood LegionLeak source, the official bio of Marine Sashala Kraevoi.  I’m currently working on a short story about her journey into The Sleeping Legion.  It’s been hard for her, but you’ll appreciate her appearance in Fortress Beta City and later in Operation Breakout even more after this.  Now the important parts!  Remember, destroy this message after reading it so the anonymous source can live long enough to continually feed us excellent intelligence!  Without further ado, here is the leaked document!

Marine Monday: Vengeance Class Fighter

Standard

space-warrior

Hey Space Cadets, how are you doing?  Things are good here, my mother is finally getting her house repaired from Hurricane Matthew.  Working with insurance proved to be a nightmare, and her whole block looks like it’s a construction zone.  Sad to see the neighborhood where I grew up in such disrepair. Also, my editor and friend, Corey, finalized his move. One less stressful thing for him to worry about, now I get to pester him again! I didn’t hit my 60K goal for this weekend, but I came close and I have outlined up to the big climatic battle.  Afterwards, I just have to write the battle scene which are generally fun and easy to write.

 

 

 

So, onto today’s Marine Monday!  Today we’ve got another missive from our LegionLeaks hero!  We will be able to take a look at the classified data known on the New Order’s Vengeance Class Fighter Aircraft.  Take a look!

Hopefully, this was some fun information because that brave soul risked life and limb to get it to us.  If this post inspires the artist in you, contact me and I’ll feature your art on the Facebook page and here on the blog!

Marine Monday: Sangurian’s

Standard

space-warrior

Hey Space Cadets, how’re you all doing this fine Monday?  Here in the States it’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Day so we’ve enjoyed the three-day weekend.  Played games with the kids, went for walks and enjoyed the nature around us.  I didn’t post a blog yesterday, and for that I’m sorry.  I had to get my computer fixed, and then got lost in the sauce working on Operation Breakout.  I really feel like you’re going to love this one, it has more action than the first two and we explore the culture of the Human Legion Universe even more.

 

Another quick update, there is an official Facebook page for fans of the Human Legion Universe.  Right now it’s new and only includes Tim C. Taylor, Corey the Editor and yours truly!  If you want to join, hop on over to the new page and start a conversation or two.  And speaking of hopping… let’s talk about rabbits.  No, seriously, today’s post is about the Sangurian species.  They’re humanoid rabbit warriors, who came close to annihilation after a failed revolution against their capricious White Knight Imperial Overlords.  Like in many cases, when you revolt and fail it goes badly for you and yours.  In this case, very badly.

 

Because I know you’d rather see how the sausage is made than hear me bloviate, here is a look at the Sangurians.  I have it on good authority from that mysterious LegionLeak warrior – these documents are true and were stolen from the deepest digital vaults.  Don’t believe me?  Take a look and see for yourself.  I even hired the best translators in the metaverse since I don’t read White Knight Imperial Standard.

 Also, in case you were curious about what I visualized when reading these purloined documents, I grabbed a screen shot from Google.  I own none of the rights to these, so I’m only showing you what you could see in the same search I made.  Hope it sparks some creative juices for everyone!  If you’ve got similar creatures in your works, or read of them, please start a conversation here or on the Facebook fan group.
