Cyber Invasion – Mushy Middle is super exciting :)

Space Ship I am more than halfway through writing Cyber Invasion, and I did something that I want to share. Not too long ago, I read a book talking about using techniques for screenwriting in genre fiction novels. I did just that.

Most books, the middle, can be slow and drag on a bit. What did I do? I put an important battle and amped up the tension by making the aliens win this round.

What does this have to do with screenwriting? Movies utilize plot points every fifteen minutes or eight major plot points per film. I did the same thing with this novel, and it is working out great.

Cheers!

Cyber Invasion – Military Sci Fi meets Cyberpunk!

Cyber Invasion, a Military Science Fiction & Cyberpunk Novel

Cyber Invasion cover artCyber Invasion is the first of the six-part series, The A.I. Conspiracy. A rogue starship captain, to save her life, must save the planet that hates her. Sick? Huh?

The story takes place on Earth in the far future with a dystopian setting. Cool right? I think so. The government put the Governing Information System (GIS) in charge, who determined that people needed to be continuously connected to the future internet. Of course, what could possibly go wrong? Everything!

The A.I. Conspiracy follows Lea McKenna through her ups and downs, both physically and emotionally. The series antagonist works in the background, and I am treating that one as a mystery. The longer I can keep you guessing the wrong person as the real antagonist, the better. 🙂

What should you expect? Each novel, around 300 pages each, will be released every few months, or sooner. Unlike the Prophecy of Axain series, there are adult themes, situations, and language. I wrote those for people who love fast adventures with emotionally charged subplots.

How much will each novel cost? The regular price for this series on Kindle will $3.99 USD, but there will be promotions from time to time. The paperbacks will vary, due to printing and distribution costs.

What formats will they be in? Right now, Kindle and paperback.

On my blog for the next several weeks, until the release date, I will be posting character interviews, etc. So, keep an eye out.

Onto the Cyber Invasion – A Space Opera with a Cyberpunk flavor

cyberpunk space opera

Full Circle is done. Now it’s onto my Space Opera & Cyberpunk story, Cyber Invasion

Full Circle

As I sit at my desk this morning, I can’t help but feel excited. My epic fantasy series, Prophecy of Axain is complete. It’s funny. The last book was the hardest to write because I had to make sure that I didn’t leave any “story promises” unanswered. There is closure on the characters from Ravenward throughout the rest of the series. I always hated it when I finished reading a series and left hanging on some minor plot point, but something I just wanted to know.

Cyber Invasion

The A.I. Conspiracy series is about Captain Lea McKenna, a Space Battle Cruiser Commander, who was off to fight pirates for a decade. After nearly losing her husband (The Marine Colonel on her ship), they are recalled to Earth only to find that it is not the same home they left. No, it was far, far worse.

The A.I. Conspiracy will be a six-part series with a unique twist at the end. It is in a dystopian setting where people who don’t get cybernetic enhancements are shunned and forbidden from getting any real jobs, including Lea McKenna. It was all done for the betterment of Humanity, right? What could go wrong? Would Murphy’s Law apply? I think you get the idea.

A.I. has become so advanced that nearly job was taken by robots. Also, the government decided to enable A.I. to make all the important decisions, because they would always be objective, right? But if it were self-aware, would it? Perhaps? Maybe? Maybe not?

Change in the writing calendar, my science fiction novel is next

CYBERPUNK CITYI have been talking about the Dragon Wars Chronicles, but I had to make a business choice. My fantasy series did not do as well as I hoped, so my next novel has to be written to market. I know some folks think that writing to market is a four letter word, but you need to eat.

I am planning on releasing one AI Conspiracy (6 parts) novel followed by one Dragon Wars Chronicles (3-9 parts) Novel until both series are finished. I’ll keep you posted.

Full Circle, the last book in my heroic fantasy series

epic fantasyHeroic fantasy with a twist

With Galin’s army in place, he travels to Shumnar unite the dwarves and the gnomes to destroy the Darkstriders before it is too late.

This will be a great end to the Prophecy of Axain Series. I spent more time planning this one to make sure that I tie up all the promises I made to the readers from Ravenward through Iron Fist Keep.

What’s cool is that Galin gets a chance to face the killer of his parents and . . . I guess you’ll have to wait to find out.

The writing is coming along, and I anticipate to have the first draft done by the end of April for a July 2016 release.

What’s next?

  1. Finish the writing, revising, and editing Full Circle in time for a July 2016 release.
  2. Complete Outline Dragon Mage (mostly done now)
  3. Complete Dragon Mage for an October 2016 release date.
