The Logbook Archives: Volume 1– Coming 11/23/16


Incoming transmission from The Wordsmith of Sol:

Well, Crew, it’s finally done. The Logbook Archives: Volume 1 is currently on its way to you via the internet’s fantabulous conglomeration of interconnected, intergalactic pipes. On November 23rd, 2016, the first edition of the new, yearly archive of The Logbook will release. For only 2.99 on the Kindle store (or as part of the 5.00/mo contribution reward on Patreon) you can own (or pre-order) the first year’s collection of short-stories and poems in their new format. Over a hundred short stories and poems, in Ebook style, complete with a table of contents, themed headings, and a special foreword by yours truly.

But wait, there’s more!

With “LBAV1’s” completion, I can begin focusing on the Ebook formatting of the first year’s Novellas and the cover design, as well as my next, full-length novel release. But here’s the cool thing; the novella Ebook collection will be completely free! Also, “LBAV1’s” proceeds will go toward first upgrading, then maintaining, this site before it is put to other uses.

It’s been a long year of learning experiences, Crew. It’s taken longer than I’d have liked to get this stuff to you, but I know what I’m doing now, so it will take less time in the future. You’ve all been very patient and I’m extremely grateful for that.

So, thank you for everything so far, and don’t forget to mark the calendar! Alternately, visit Kindle or Patreon to keep abreast of any news you might otherwise miss. Or, if you just can’t wait ’til release, pick up a copy of The Omega Device to hold you over!


Transmission ends.

The Omega Device: Coming Soon!

Coming Soon!The Omega Device

Book I of the Ha-Shan Chronicles

When Tattooist Maggie Doherty’s client is found murdered, Detective Russell Williams discovers an identical tattoo on another, recent murder-victim. Her obvious innocence leaves Russell perplexed, and with little more than a promise of future aid from her.

But their brief association has unwittingly made them targets for a group known only as Omega. Both must swiftly accept that life as they know it has changed, and prepare to uncover secrets buried by time, or else fall in a battle that might determine the very fate of Humanity.

Excerpt, Chapter 6: Fight or Flight

Soft steps propelled her instincts. In a flash, she was digging in a cabinet, grabbing what she could. Bottles flew over the counter with reckless aim. The man grunted, cracked more shots off, then dodged from view.

She glanced at a single bottle of drain cleaner remaining. His heavy feet sounded. Her hands flew, grasped a large knife from a drawer. The feet hesitated. A hand unscrewed the cleaner’s cap.

Her heart pounded. Steps began again, reached the doorway. Maggie slid up the wall, flattened against it. She felt him shift for a view of the kitchen…

Coming soon to an Ebook seller near you!

A sort of (not so) quick update.

So, it’s been a while since I’ve said anything directly to you, my dear readers. I tend to want my work to speak for itself and don’t have much to say otherwise anyhow. Today though, I thought I’d update everyone.

As promised, each week I’ve been posting new stories, poems, or chapters of novellas and the like. For now this will stay the same. I’ve been toying with the notion of adding another day of content, but I haven’t quite worked that out yet. Rest assured that I’m still working many hours every day to keep the content coming. As you may have noticed, there’s quite a wide variety as far as genres go. While I consider myself primarily a sci-fi author, I’m no stranger to working outside that genre. (Or even outside definable monikers altogether)

So, what’s this really about? Anything special to talk about? Or just more mindless ravings from the innards of madman? Little bit of both actually. I’d like to first say thank you to everyone that has read, continues to read, or is discovering my work for the first time. I love that the internet’s given all of us a place to share these things, and the power to do what we love. While I do intend to do more with other forms of work in the future, (Ie, Novels, traditional and/or self-publishing, etc) there will always be a commitment to this site.

On that note, I would like to say that I’m working on bringing purchasable, ebook formats of certain works to the digital marketplaces. It will take some time, but keep an eye out for forthcoming details. You might be thinking; Oh, but it’s free here, why would I pay for it then? Well simply, we’ve all got to eat. Even immortals like myself– though I generally prefer the hearts of vanquished foes.

Whatever is eventually compiled and up for purchase will remain free on the site, but e-books/sales will allow people that format, which is slightly more accessible and easy to read. Apart from eventually helping me upgrade the site to a real, paid version, this will also help me avoid bread-lines somewhat, if not entirely. (I mean, they’re so damned long nowadays!) There may also be some kind of crowd-funding venture in the future, but again, I’ll keep everyone updated if/when that happens.

So there’s the thing no-one really likes to talk about, but that I kinda’ have to broach. I’m not deluded to think I’ll end up with some crazy cash-flow or pile of gold, but I’d like to be able to provide the aforementioned, and unfortunately, can’t do it without at least some avenue of funding behind it.

Phew! Okay, that wasn’t so awful, was it? (I would like to reiterate: No-one should feel obligated to commit funds– or maybe they should, you know, if they’re the guilty type. In that case, shut up and give me money!)

Anywho, tomorrow’s another short story as usual for Tuesdays and there may be a bonus story this week, but I’m not certain yet. So thanks for reading, and don’t forget to keep an eye out for more updates. I’ll give more info when it’s relevant. For now, enjoy what’s here and what’s to come, and thanks for reading!
