MileHi Here I Come

I kept wondering why everybody was leaving comments on the Derelict post … then I realized I hadn’t left a new post here since June.

Yikes. Sorry about that.

If you missed the news, I was diagnosed with ADD the week before my 62nd birthday. It was rather a shock but the good news is that it’s broken the logjam.

Since that time I’ve converted and ordered the galley proofs for

Double Share
Captain’s Share
Owner’s Share

Only two books left to convert but they’ll have to wait until next week. I’m taking the paperback Double Share with me to mark up during the convention (assuming I get some time to tome) and my goal is to clear all this old work away by year end. It has to go before I can focus on new stuff. Every time I try to write something I look at the board and get blown off course.

The answer is “Clear it.”

So it goes. In January I’ll be Guest of Honor at COSine down in Colorado Springs but today I’m off to MileHiCon and the first time I’ve been out of town since last MileHi.

You have no idea how much I need this.

I’ll try to post more often to keep everybody in the loop. I just need to get the task added to my To Do list…

Yes, that’s how I feel these days. Between being sick and dealing with illness in the family, it’s been hard to find the umph to push new stuff out.

But L. J. Cohen has a great new book out, Derelict. I read a piece of this last year and was honored to provide some marketing blurbage earlier this spring. It’s out now and I can highly recommend it.

Grab a sample and see if you agree.

Now, I need to get back to getting better.

Old Hickory Lane

While you’re waiting for me to get the next book out…

A colleague has released Old Hickory Lane on Amazon. (Sorry Kobo and B&N folks. It’s in Select for the moment.)

I had the opportunity to proof read this one a few weeks back and it’s top notch. It’s more fantasy than SF but it’s the same kind of coming of age story that I know many of you enjoy.

If you’ve a mind to, why don’t you grab a sample and see if it’s something you’d like?

Lemme know what you think – and whether you want me to keep recommending stuff that I think some of you will enjoy.

In the meantime, safe voyage.

Kobo – still waiting for them to approve it.

Yes, I’ll be publishing the paperbacks as soon as I finish the earlier books in the series.

Federated Freight

federate_freight_newSome time ago I got a Galaxy Note II and I love it. One of the very first things I did was make a “ship’s tablet” background for it. One of my Tweeps as a new phone and reminded me that I never gave this thing out so … here ya go.

Happy Hollandaise!

ETA: I had some requests for larger formats and different aspects.
