Tough month

October took a toll on me. Nomadic had several book releases, we had MileHiCon, I got older, and I was putting in extra hours at the "real" job, and those hours were difficult. It's taken a real toll on me, physically, mentally, and emotionally. November has been fairly mellow so far, and I'm working on getting caught up, although my body and mind don't want to do anything. For those of you waiting on things from me, they will be coming...I promise.

Disharmony of the Spheres

Mental illness is very common in our society, but it’s also very misunderstood. Many view those with mental illnesses as being weak, but there is a great deal of strength in those that must battle their own minds on a regular basis.
Disharmony of the Spheres focuses on characters with mental illnesses that are still able to be successful. They may not completely overcome their illnesses, but they are able to beat them back and succeed.
In this volume, you will find the fiction of Ian Brazee Cannon, Sharon Lee and Steve Miller, MH Bonham, David Lee Summers, Nicole Givens Kurtz, Kate Runnels, Michael Morgan, L.J. Bonham, Carol Hightshoe, Francis W. Alexander, and Terrie Leigh Relf.
This book is dedicated to all of the science fiction fans and writers that must battle their own personal demons every day, and half of all of the profits from this book will go to The Yellow Ribbon Suicide Prevention Organization, a group that battles teen suicide.

Delivery

A new story in The Divided States of America...
Reed makes deliveries between the Great Lakes Conglomerate and the Wastelands on a regular basis, but this delivery is more dangerous, and much more important than any previous delivery. Reed is willing to risk his life to make a difference in a divided world, but is the risk worth it? He certainly thinks so…

New story done

I just put the finishing touches on a new Divided States story. This one coming in at around 3000 words. It should be available in about a week. Something tells me that this one will piss some people off...but then I've never been known to write happy sunshine type stories, nor have I ever cared if my fiction makes people uncomfortable.

Writing is crazy

For the last month or so, I've been doing research in my few spare moments for a new Divided States of America story.  A few days ago, an idea came to me for a different Divided States story...so, of course I wrote 1500 words on the new idea today, and I haven't even touched the original idea.
No wonder writers have so many mental issues...this is a field that really can drive you crazy!

A Cavallo by Debby Feo...the ninth story from The Divided States of America

A Problem in Translation is an audio book

My novel about first contact with difficult to understand aliens, A Problem in Translation, is now available as an audio book at https://www.audible.com/pd/Sci-Fi-Fantasy/A-Problem-in-Translation-Audiobook/B0753KWGRL/ref=a_search_c4_1_1_srTtl?qid=1503946590&sr=1-1
What is humanity to do when faced by aliens whose language is vague at best? What is humanity to do when faced by aliens that are worshipped or feared by almost every other species in the universe? What is humanity to do when faced by aliens that make decisions that seem completely illogical?
These are the questions that must be answered by Captain Shiro Takahashi and the crew of the Astrid, and failing to come up with the right answers could lead to the annihilation of humanity at the prehensile limbs of the Lemec.
Governing, but not governing most of the nearby galaxy, the Lemec are a powerful species that no one really understands, and this is just how the Lemec want it. Captain Takahashi is trying to understand, but the Lemec try to block his actions at every turn. How can he ever hope to save humanity, and do the Lemec even care if humanity is saved?
