Welcome back, everyone. I’ve just returned from WesterCon in Phoenix and getting down to business once more. I have a nice lull until September when things pick up again on the road. Thanks to everyone at WesterCon for a great time. The staff put a lot of hard work into the convention and the staff at Tempe Mission Palms were more than supportive of the convention. I’m hoping to join them again in either Denver next year or Utah in 2019.

I’d also like to send a special thanks to Kim Richardson, a very lovely lady from Memphis, who recently reviewed Night Creeps. For those of you who know Kim, she’s a tough reviewer who isn’t bashful about expressing her thoughts on a story. A while back, she wrote a nice review on Princess Pain as well. I love the way she presents her thoughts on a story. You can see it under Reviews in this site.

I now have copies of TV Gods- Summer Programming, the sequel to TV Gods. Queen of Pain is coming soon as well. I don’t have a date yet but it will be before summer’s end. This is one wild sequel to Princess Pain. So much happens that changes characters, both good and bad. The big question: Does Marina go back to her old ways? Hmm. You’ll have to wait and see.

I’ve been occupied with an adaptation I was hired to do. It’s a non-fiction story which is quite different than fiction and takes significantly longer than I expected; however, it is coming along. Unfortunately, the Space Truckers novel is on hold until I finish. The script for Space Truckers has gotten a lot of interest from movie industry professionals but, unfortunately, that doesn’t guarantee a deal. I recently had increased interest in the Space Frontiers: Eye of Icarus as well. I hope that, with the renewed interest in space, producer interest in my sci-fi scripts will lead to a movie or TV series. I have the space probes and their pictures as well as Space X and Orbital Sciences and their progress toward space travel to thank for the resurgence in space interest. I recently saw episodes of The Expanse and was impressed with the detail and creativity they applied for a space-based series. Very well done.

In February, I will join Connooga in Chattanooga on February 23rd to the 25th, doing both panels and selling in the dealers area. This is an exciting convention that has grown from a small venue and 500 people at the Choo-Choo Hotel to a Comicon atmosphere at the Chattanooga Convention Center and thousands of attendees. The programming has grown considerably as well to include Cosplay, Gaming, Anime, and many other genres in addition to programming and art. Chattanooga is a beautiful city with much to offer as well. If you are attending from out of town, spend some extra days and see the area.

I’m also working on details with McKay books in Chattanooga at 7734 Lee Highway for a store event during Christmas week. We’re working on something really special. More to come as the information becomes available. Well, time to get back to work. Join me again soon to see what’s new in my world.
