The Longclaw-class Assault Frigate: An Old, but Reliable Workhorse

Another lore post, another fun ship to talk about! As before, I will add a concept art image here before too long, G-d willing. Additionally, the Galaxy Ascendant 3 indiegogo is still ongoing for another week and a half; any support or sharing of the campaign is greatly appreciated! I just finished writing book 4Continue reading “The Longclaw-class Assault Frigate: An Old, but Reliable Workhorse”

It’s finally time! At last, I can happily share with all of you the finalized cover art for Galaxy Ascendant 3: A Shifting Alliance. (Will share the final cover, with text, some time after Christmas.)     The cover this time features one character readers up to date with the series have met before, butContinue reading “Galaxy Ascendant 3 Cover Art Reveal!”

Galaxy Ascendant Lore Post: The Galactic Alliance: The Union of Many for the Greater Good

Time for a new Galaxy Ascendant lore post! Not a ship his time; rather, a faction that has played, and continues to play, a major role in the series. At some point (once time allows, and once I know what exactly I’d want it to look like) I’ll add the Alliance’s emblem to this post.Continue reading “Galaxy Ascendant Lore Post: The Galactic Alliance: The Union of Many for the Greater Good”

Galaxy Ascendant Lore Post: The Conqueror-class Battlecruiser: The Backbone of the Imperial Navy

It’s time for yet another Galaxy Ascendant lore post! I’m really coming to quite enjoy writing these, and I hope you’re having fun reading them! Once again, no concept art, but as I said last time, that is something I hope to rectify in the near future, and I’ll of course let you know when thatContinue reading “Galaxy Ascendant Lore Post: The Conqueror-class Battlecruiser: The Backbone of the Imperial Navy”

Galaxy Ascendant Lore Post: The Felinar-class Battlecruiser: The Fastest Battlecruiser in the Galaxy

Time for another Galaxy Ascendant lore post! No concept art again, but, as I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I’m working on commissioning such art, and will update these posts–and you all–when that time comes. Also, the Galaxy Ascendant 3 indiegogo campaign is still going on! If you’re new to the series, you can get allContinue reading “Galaxy Ascendant Lore Post: The Felinar-class Battlecruiser: The Fastest Battlecruiser in the Galaxy”

My Outlining Process/Writing Method: That of a Shaper

So much has been written and said about novel outlined over the years that I had, until recently, never considered it worthwhile to do so myself, beyond occasionally mentioning that I did outline my books–with fairly lengthy outlines. To start off, I’m sure most of you have heard of the gardener vs architect (or pantserContinue reading “My Outlining Process/Writing Method: That of a Shaper”

Galaxy Ascendant Lore Post: The Hawkwing-class Starfighter: Modifiable Multirole Monster

Another Galaxy Ascendant lore post today! Another ship, the first of a number of starfighters I intend to do posts on. Unfortunately no concept art yet, but as before, I will hopefully soon commission art for these, and update these posts when the time comes. And remember, there is still time to back Galaxy Ascendant 3: A ShiftingContinue reading “Galaxy Ascendant Lore Post: The Hawkwing-class Starfighter: Modifiable Multirole Monster”

The Final Push: Become a Part of the Galaxy Ascendant!

Alright, it’s crunch time. Only a few days left in the Galaxy Ascendant 3 indiegogo campaign, and there’s still a fair mount of ground to cover. This is by no means an insurmountable goal, however, and we very much still can reach the goal required to cover the production costs for putting out this awesomeContinue reading “The Final Push: Become a Part of the Galaxy Ascendant!”

Galaxy Ascendant 3 Map Reveal

When someone thinks of maps in speculative fiction books, the mind always goes first to the fantasy genre, and the city/country/continent/world maps that go along with it. I love those maps, and my recently released epic fantasy novel, The Dragon Hand, featured one such map. However, science fiction stories can make good use of maps asContinue reading “Galaxy Ascendant 3 Map Reveal”
