Even though this blog has been quiet for a while, I have been busy writing more stories and practicing creating cover images.
I want to wish everyone a happy holiday season and hope you all find time to relax and read a good book or two, whether they are mine or other authors.
Take care and enjoy your holiday festivities.
I have been busy writing and editing and only now have my first collection of Fantasy Flash Fiction available for purchase at Smashwords.
These fantasy stories were fun to write and the feedback so far is all good. If you wish to purchase click on the cover on the right and as each link becomes available, I will update on the book page.
Seeds of Hope includes 6 flash fiction fantasy stories, all under 500 words long.
Each uplifting story contains characters that strive for a better life, both for themselves and others.
When Pilot Cambrie Jarvis is rescued from an escape pod, she hides what little knowledge she has of the explosion on S. S. Desert Run. All she wants is to pilot space ships and stop dreaming.
She takes a job as cook on outbound mining freighter S. S. Disco Dancer to evade questions over the space ship explosion and how she survived.
After dreaming of danger to her new ship and crew, she again must decide whether to leave herself open to ridicule and testing by explaining her dream warnings, or remain silent and again hide in an escape pod until the coming accident happens, because if she dreamed it, it will happen.
Captain Alana Black searches both the Cygnus Peace Keeper Base and the Cygnus Space Station to locate the leader of the illegal mining operation on the Altien home world.
She hopes her luck does not run out as she evades explosions and snipers while following each lead, relying on her android, two Altien’s, her ship’s artificial intelligence and a few trusted Peace Keepers.

Still editing the third Galaxy Freight Novelette, but hope to have it completed this week, cover done next week, and up on Amazon and Smashwords by 23rd Decembr, 2011.
After that, relaxing over Christmas break. Hope you all have a wonderful end of year holiday.
I completed and uploaded the first two novelettes in a new series, called Galaxy Freight.
Captain Alana Black owns a freighting company called Galaxy Freight and pilots her space ship between earth and colonized planets at the edge of settled space.
She has an android to help called Sam, and an artificial intelligence program called Ship.
First, thank you to every reader out there who downloaded a sample of one of my stories.
Second, a big thank you to those who read the samples and then purchased a copy. I do appreciate it. Without readers, this Indie Publishing merry-go-round, is rather dull.
Finally, I am plotting my next series of stories, with all new characters, set in a whole different part of the solar system. Read more »
