    For a fun, light-hearted yet fair review of Tempus Fugit, the first Star Eagle Adventures novel, check out Kibbin Codex's "What is 'Star Eagle Adventures: Tempus Fugit"?

    As noted before, I've been writing an original novel on the side. It's a superhero / fantasy themed work that incorporates Egyptian mythology. 
    The book in now up at Amazon, in both E-Book format and paper. You can find it at: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=ka-ru+book+one
    The series has its own website which is also about to go live. So, when that's up, I'll post the link here as well and all future information will be announced on that site.
    Here is the synopsis:
    "Four thousand years ago: three deities come together in Egypt for one final, cataclysmic duel. In the bloody showdown that ensues, the newly born goddess Ma’Vest makes the ultimate sacrifice to rid the world of the hateful Set, before his power and scope can grow beyond any hope of containment…
    Today: The western world suffers under religious despotism. All other faiths have been eradicated without mercy.  Anyone daring to defy the Scrolls of Luset are arrested or executed by police officers that enforce Holy Law.
    Yet, the war of the gods is far from over and soon the finale battle will begin—once again using superhuman soldiers that carry the living spirits of their masters. It is a conflict destined to reshape our reality and decide the fate of humanity’s collective soul…"
     
     
     
     
     

    Another note: reviews are of course very important, especially at this beginning stage.
    I can arrange a free copy in exchange for anyone who is willing to produce an honest review.
    Thanks!

    I figured that since I'm so eager to run my mouth about  UT business, I should at least take the time to update my own thread. Just saying.
    So, there will be a bit more of a delay before work resumes on the rewrite of "Preemptive Maneuvers". The next chapter should go up at Trekbbs sometime in the next few months.
    The delay is mostly due to the impending launch of my novel---an original work that I've been cobbling together for the last several years. Delivery is now only a few weeks away and I'm at the point of doing some last financial housekeeping chores that are required before I put it up at Amazon.
    So PM will be delayed somewhat, but as excuses go, I guess this isn't the worst one to have. 
    While this forum is really for my fan fic work, I'll still post an announcement here with links when the time comes. There will also be a synopsis. The theme is superhero fantasy with a supernatural flavor.

    So, obviously we got caught up in the editing phase, and then life happened.  I changed jobs and AJ's life has changed significantly since then.  But we've been talking about finishing this thing and getting it out there for everyone to read

    Reread the stories and the reviews you received.  Sometimes that old encouragement is helpful to getting your warp core back online and powering the ol' coils.

    It's been a long time since I've posted and seen most of you, but some big things happened in my life that I should tell you about which explains why you haven't heard from me and why I haven't been writing.  First, my mother suffered from Alzheimer's through most of the 2010's.  As her condition worsened, I had to take on a greater role as caregiver until I and my family could no longer give her the proper care she needed and we had to place her in extended care.  Me and my mother were very close and when she passed away in 2015, I spiraled down into a very deep and dark depression where I didn't really so much live, as exist.  It was a very dark and painful time for me and really only recently ended.  Last year at about this time, I passed out during a cardiac stress test and was rushed to the hospital where they had to perform a double coronary bypass and had a heart valve replaced.  They had to perform surgery on me twice as they had to stop some internal bleeding.  I nearly didn't make it through.  
    It took me the better part of 2017 to recover from my surgery, but during that time, thanks to the love of family and friends, I got better.  Now, I've dropped 70 pounds from last year and my depression is history.  I've come to terms with the loss of my mother and I've found that my creative energies have been restored.  If my friends at United Trek would have me back, I'd love to finish the stories I'm doing.  Right now, I'm working on "Blood Cries" and I think everyone will like the ending of that story.  I look forward to reading and sharing with everyone once again and to those who enjoyed reading about our wayward captain Liz and all her friends, well, if you'll have me, she's baaaaaack!

    Yes, "The Double Edge"!
    Chapter 8 is now up at both Ad Astra and Trekbbs.
    So, I've been away for a while working on an original novel.  (I have delusions of grandeur)  It's now in the hands of a  proofreader, so I have some writing time to play with.  As promised, I'm back to completing Intrepid stories that were left hanging lo, those many years ago.
    I think I've struck the right balance in my writing schedule now, so I do plan to finish DE and then move on to the follow up: "Pre Emptive Maneuvers". The original version of PE doesn't need much tweaking, so I'm expecting the rewrite process to go faster.
    These installments are important ones for the series, and the events have been referenced in tales that came afterward. So I think they're worth finishing. Besides, I hate leaving unfinished work laying around.
    About my own novel, I'd like to publicly acknowledge and thank my UT colleague Cejay. His work as content editor  was invaluable. I was left with a much stronger book than what I started with. So much so, the rough draft is practically an embarrassment to me now.   I will have him to thank for any success that comes from this project.
    More updates as they come.
