Robert Collins’ blog: writing fantasy and science fiction; reading and watching stuff; living minimally
I’ve read a few more books last month. All were 4-star reads that I enjoyed.
As before, the links go to Goodreads.
Meat Cute: The Hedgehog Incident
The Lady Astronaut of Mars
Romancing the Inventor
From here on, I’ll only be mentioning what I’m reading and watching in my newsletter, except when I want to write a really long post about something. So I hope that’s another reason for you to subscribe. :)
Space Hero Emma Tiffany
Here’s a light sci-fi novel for you:
Emma Tiffany is not having a good time these days.
Her mother is a famed law enforcement officer in the new Interstellar Alliance of Independent Worlds. Emma would like NOT to follow in her mother’s footsteps. Then she comes to the rescue of a woman she met in a bar.
She’s “rewarded” with a posting to the Alliance Space Patrol. She’s given command of a ship, the duty to protect the Alliance, and all the aggravations that come with command and duty. She has to deal with criminals, a conspiracy, and all-out war.
Will there be a better reward at the end of Emma’s service to the Alliance? Emma is hoping there will be, and something a little more valuable than a gold watch...
The novel is now on sale. Search for it at your favorite store.
Writing Progress, March 2020
Another month has passed, so another update on how much I’m writing. Before that, though, I hope you’re staying inside as much as you can and that you’re staying safe.
I’ve been inside most of the time as usual, writing. I finished the novel I’d been working on when I put up my last progress post. It came in at around 77,000 words. I ended on a Friday, so I was able to start on the next project the following Monday. I’m still working on it, and it looks like it might be a proper novel like the one I just finished.
What that means is that I wrote 287 pages in March. There were some pretty good days working on the novel. I haven’t has as many working on this new one, but it does seem to be picking up the pace. By the way, that’s over 20 pages more than if I’d just stuck to my usual goals!
I’m guessing that it will take the rest of April to finish this novel. I do have one more project outlined, but I have two ideas I’d like to pursue. I might plot them out before starting on that next project. Follow this blog to see how I do.
Oh, and if you want to know when I have new releases out before I post them here, subscribe to my email newsletter. I’m in the habit of doing it, and it comes out the first Thursday of each month. Thanks!
