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!

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”

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”

Galaxy Ascendant Lore: The Talvostan Union: Service Guarantees Citizenship

Time for another Galaxy Ascendant lore post! More ships/ship classes will be following, but I wanted to do something a bit different. Also, I am looking int options for concept art for ships, so I think that’s an alright reason to wait a bit longer for that. I’ve also just realized that it’d probably beContinue reading “Galaxy Ascendant Lore: The Talvostan Union: Service Guarantees Citizenship”

Galaxy Ascendant Lore Post: The River Lark, a Souped-Up Classic

Welcome to the first of several planned Galaxy Ascendant lore posts, designed to give you a deeper look into some of the ships, characters, organizations, species, and more, in this expansive galaxy. Unfortunately I don’t have a concept art image for this as of now, but I do intend to commission such art once theContinue reading “Galaxy Ascendant Lore Post: The River Lark, a Souped-Up Classic”

Galaxy Ascendant 3 Indiegogo Launch!

That’s right! Today, I launched the indiegogo campaign for Galaxy Ascendant 3: A Shifting Alliance. Despite efforts to avoid further conflict, the Galaxy is at war again. The Galactic Alliance, made up of both old allies and recent enemies, now face down the large and oppressive Revittan Empire, a very different enemy than they haveContinue reading “Galaxy Ascendant 3 Indiegogo Launch!”
