Amazon is having a problem converting em-dashes (—) properly, so God’s Assassin will be delayed until they can work this out. Computer programming can be a frustrating activity and I sympathize with their IT staff. I’m confident they will figure it out eventually. In the meantime, their marvelous customer service representative is keeping me in the loop.

While this is going on, I’ve started the next story in the Holy Christian Empire series under the working title of Princess Barbara (not the real title, but I’m keeping that a secret because I’ve had titles stolen from me before — including God’s Assassin, and Children of Destruction was stolen for a game). It’s the story of how Queen Barbara II came to power (the first Queen Barbara was Eric’s wife from Last Train from Earth). The story is set between Last Train from Earth and God’s Assassin, and starts in EY 2405, before the Empire got an official name (that’s another story).

Writing a new story can be a problem. I know how it starts and I kinda know how it will end, but the story between those two events isn’t cooperating. My muse needs to get her caboose in gear.

Happy Thanksgiving November 29, 2013

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and avoided any injury during Black Friday.

We (the Geek and I) spent Thanksgiving with some friends and watched football when not stuffing our faces (he stuffed his face, I enjoyed it second hand).

We spent Friday at home, writing, instead of charging into the press at the stores. Much easier on the constitution. I think I’m getting a hand on the final plot line for Escape from Earth. The characters are starting to gel.

Sunday is the start of Advent, so enjoy the season and remember what it’s really about.
