Lots of Updates - Proofreading Project

Posted at

A lot of updates across most books in the Taylor series (except Rebirth) and Playing by Ear as all of those books have undergone additional proofreading to correct some missed errors.

Thanks to those who have submitted corrections over the last few months. Sorry it took so long to get them all incorporate, but they are all there now, and it's been a big help.

It may take some time for all these to actually go live, because there weren't a lot, but they were spread across many chapters, each that has to be updated individually, so it'll take time for the site admins to approve all the reposts.

New Sci-Fi Story Coming

Posted at Updated:

Starting Friday, the first book in a new Sci-fi series will start posting. The series is called Imperium and the first book is called The Sword of Jupiter. It will post every week (and occasionally twice a week). Information on pre-orders is up now, and can be found on my author page,

Here is a brief synopsis:

An Uncertain Future in a New Past

During the test flight of a prototype faster-than-light craft, Lt. Commander Ky is flung into the ancient past that never existed. Rome has fallen, defeated by the mighty Carthaginian Empire, it's survivors chased off the continent and onto what had been the remote province of Britannia. Hounded by the Carthaginians bent on conquering the known world, Rome is on the verge of destruction. Stranded and alone, except for a tactical AI implanted in his head, Ky has lost everything and must find a way to live in a world different than anything he's ever known.

For Ky to survive, he needs a new home. For the Romans to survive, they need a miracle. But can a man from the future work with people so far in his past, or is this match doomed to failure?

An Update on Playing by Ear Posting Schedule

Posted at

I'd planned out playing by ear to post one a week to give me time to write the sequel and get it released just as PBE finished, but the sequel is going faster than expected, so I'm stepping up the posting schedule a bit. It won't be every week, but you will see some weeks you get 2 a week instead of 1, and there will be 3 weeks where you get 3 chapters. This should mean PBE finished posting in Dec/Jan instead of late March, which is when it's currently scheduled to finish.
