Howdy, Strangers!

Greetings, friends! And long time, no see! I've been away for ages due to a 330-some page baby called The Purloined Number. It's the second humorous sci-fi book in my There Goes the Galaxy trilogy, and it pretty well sucked the time from my days and the energy from my blogging fingers. But on the plus side, it was great fun to write and I'm really happy with the direction the characters have taken.

My friend, Dave White, did this cover as well--and I think he outdid himself. I mean... LOOK at the spacely awesomeness! The man was making planets, fer Pete's sake—and then, on the seventh day he rested and ordered delivery.

Anyway, the book came out in paperback in late September, and in ebook versions in early October. It's on Amazon, Barnes and Noble online and Smashwords, if you're curious and want to take a gander.

So far, the reviews are pretty stellar.

That out of the way, I'm hoping to get back to updating this site more often now, while I work on the final There Goes the Galaxy book. (The one jokingly called: There Goes the Galaxy: No Fraggin' Title Yet.)

Hope things have been well for you all, and I look forward to getting to interact with you again!

Poe would like your title!

Along These Lines- Heh, yes, possibly! The book does contain a little nod to Poe, but I doubt anyone will really catch it. (It's okay, it's in there for my own amusement and the plot isn't dependent on it.) That's the beauty of writing humorous sci-fi. There's quite a bit of latitude to play around.
