Projects Update 2

See what I did there with the title? If you've noticed that I've used the plural version of 'project'. That's right, I have more than two projects underway.

The first one you know about, and am happy to say that it's now 35,000 words. Set in the far future and situated in our very own backyard, in the form of the Solar System, it follows the adventure of the JSSAR vessel Opportune and her crew as they uncover something big.

The second is a collaboration with my friend Nigel Gillson and features a story on what happens when your allies aren't whom they seem to be. All going well, it'll be a series of novellas and so forth.

Third, we have Bukowski and friends, and for now I'll leave that there.

It forced me to go back to the drawing board, quite literally.

Hence this update, really. I have a new project that doesn't involve Gene Bukowski. So what can I tell you about this new project? Well, it's the result of going back to the drawing board and it does feature Abdul Jafari and the Joint Space Forces, and there is indeed a rough draft of under 20,000 words. That is all for now.

As I started out on my writing journey, many, many eons ago, I focused on shorter works. Gradually, I moved to longer pieces and had come ...
