Space Opera With a Twist

It’s Starting to Look Like…

Last night, I finished revising Hard Strike (Decker’s War Book 7) and sent it to my editor. With Christmas coming up next week, I don’t think she’ll get to it until after New Year’s Day and probably not until the second week of January. But the holidays won’t impede a late January publication date, so I’m not worried.

I now intend to put the pen (or to be more accurate, the keyboard) aside for two or three weeks to recharge the batteries. As usually happens once I finish a book and send it to my editor, I find myself drained. A good thing I have an agreement with Mrs Thomson that I don’t work or even think about work at this time of year. But come January, I’ll dive into Ashes of Empire: Imperial Twilight.

Since this is likely my last blog post of 2018, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all.

Count your blessings instead of your crosses.

Count your gains instead of your losses.

Count your joys instead of your woes.

Count your friends instead of your foes.

Count your smiles instead of your tears.

Count your courage instead of your fears.

Count your full times instead of your lean.

Count your kind deeds instead of your mean.

Count your health instead of your wealth.

Love your neighbor as much as yourself.

      I’m sorry to hear PayPal is playing silly bugger. I checked and you made two payments, which as of the time I’m writing this, are both being held hostage by PayPal. Once they’re released, I will refund you one of them, and then, once you have your books, I will shut down my store, since you’re not the first to be a victim of PayPal’s stupidity. If I can’t guarantee a seamless buying experience, even though the fault lies elsewhere, there’s no point, and no alternative to PayPal.
