SFWA Is A Terrorist Organization

That’s certainly a spicy headline, isn’t it? This is just a quick post, to formalize my support of Cirsova’s statement on the matter, which you can read over at his website. SFWA’s open endorsement of the violent Black Lives Matter organization makes this very easy to do. This doesn’t even take into account the supportContinue reading “SFWA Is A Terrorist Organization”

Character Development is Overrated

What is this heresy, you might be asking? Everyone always says character development is so important in stories! Well, it’s not quite so simple as that. I’ve thought a bit about this for a while now, but after seeing 1917 this week and watching a few reviews of it, I decided to actually write this. See,Continue reading “Character Development is Overrated”

2020 Beckons!

Happy New Year, everyone! Hope you enjoyed any celebrations you attended, and I hope the new year–and decade–has gotten off to a great start! So last week, I released my sum-up of my 2019, focusing on writing related stuff but touching on other personal developments as well. Now, about a week into the new year–andContinue reading “2020 Beckons!”

Life Paths, and D-Day

So, those who follow me on Twitter might’ve seen that I had a rather interesting day here. After months of no’s regarding my desire to extend my IDF service, I finally got a yes–of course, after I did the entire discharge process. Thus, I was a civilian again for about an hour today. Now, I’mContinue reading “Life Paths, and D-Day”

Reclaiming “Strong Female Characters” in Science Fiction

There has been a lot of talk, and a lot of criticism about, a recently release Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures animated short. This particular episode is basically a fawning tribute to Princess Leia, with a focus on the scenes in the Death Star in A New Hope. I’m not going to detail every singleContinue reading “Reclaiming “Strong Female Characters” in Science Fiction”

Galaxy Ascendant Lore: The Marauder-class Destroyer: A Narrow but Effective Tool

It’s been a little while since the last Galaxy Ascendant lore post, so I figured I ought to get back to this, even as I make great headway in the writing of book 5 in the series. Still no concept art, unfortunately, but I am working on that. Stay tuned for more, and enjoy this post! Marauder-classContinue reading “Galaxy Ascendant Lore: The Marauder-class Destroyer: A Narrow but Effective Tool”

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”

Cover Reveal: The Dragon Hand

It’s taken a bit longer than expected, due to thing beyond both my and my artist’s control, but it’s well worth the wait. Things have been generally very busy lately, and I’m past due for a general update on my various projects (coming soon!). But rest assured, my army service hasn’t had a negative impactContinue reading “Cover Reveal: The Dragon Hand”

The Problems with #FearlessWomen, and why #FearlessMen Needs to Exist as Well

Back to the blog, for a bit at least, thanks to my first official week off (most of a week, anyway) since beginning my army service. The time in between finishing my Hebrew course and moving to my current base doesn’t count as vacation. 😉 And, as luck would have it, Tor.com again gave meContinue reading “The Problems with #FearlessWomen, and why #FearlessMen Needs to Exist as Well”

Fantasy Casting: A Greater Duty

While it’s unlikely that the Galaxy Ascendant series will ever be adapted for film, for numerous reasons (though one never knows for certain!), I’d be a liar if I said I never thought about what that might look like. I’m sure pretty much every author has. So, as I’ve seen several others do, I’m going toContinue reading “Fantasy Casting: A Greater Duty”
