The Art of Finishing: What Happens Now?

I used to consider myself more of a starter than a sustainer. I liked to begin things but often lost interest partway through. Over the years, I’ve finished lots more things than I’ve started, and I think it’s safe to say that tide has turned for me. There is a great satisfaction in finishing a languishing project.

That said, if a thing or situation isn’t for you, and it sucks your soul away to even think of continuing it; don’t do it anymore. Life is too short to do crap we really don’t want to do.

Reap & Reckon was a project that has haunted me for the past three years. I really needed to wrap up the series with one final book, but my heart wasn’t in writing anymore after my mom died. That last year with her was all-consuming, but I wouldn’t have traded the time we had with her for anything else.

When I put the project away, I put everything away. I packed up my desk, and folders (five years of research, stats and ideas) and stuffed them into a tote in the closet. The back of the closet. I was done.

Or so I thought.

Sometimes projects, books, people come along at just the right time to reignite and old flame. That’s what happened with Reckon. And now it’s finished.

Here’s what BEFORE/DURING the the writing of Reckon looked like after I freed it all from the CLOSET TOTE…

And here’s the after…

It took much longer than I had anticipated, but Reckon is off for editing. I’m free to start a new book. A fresh start. A do-over.

And that feels great!

If you’d like to read the series, you still have plenty of time to start. I plan for an Aug/Sept 2019 release of Reap & Reckon. You can read the entire series for FREE if you are a Kindle Unlimited subscriber. Otherwise, you can find all of my books exclusively on AMAZON. Don’t forget to leave a review when you are finished 😀

NASA and SpaceX want to return humans to the moon by 2024. My Cosmic Cowboys are already there…

On Friday, NASA announced their plans to promote space tourism for a mere $35,000 per night, likely with a 30 day minimum night stay, lol. Oh, that’s plus airfare and amenities like food, storage, communications, and I assume air. The total would be nearly $50 million per seat according to this Washington Post article.

Well then.

My Cosmic Cowboys and their very own, Bezos/Branson/Musk spacepreneur named Duncan Janson, have been preparing and succeeded (mostly) for their own version of space tourism in my Cosmic Cowboys series.

The first book is Space Cowboys & Indians. It’s a fun sci-fi adventure story with a splash of spice. You can get it exclusively on AMAZON and read for FREE if you are a Kindle Unlimited subscriber. And really, why wouldn’t you be?

How can the chance of a lifetime go so horribly wrong?

Mining Engineer Cole Hudson signed up for NASA astronaut training, but after washing out short of getting his gold wings, he retreats to Alaska where he stakes out a gold claim. When billionaire entrepreneur Duncan Janson offers him an opportunity to join a mining team on an asteroid, Cole jumps at the chance.

But nothing is as it seems. Former NASA reject and rival classmate, Tessa Hernandez, is also a member of the team, and from the beginning of the mission test flight, things go wrong. They soon discover they’re not the only ones on the asteroid. As they try to escape, they are pulled through a wormhole and back to the early 1800s New Mexico desert where aliens and Apaches may be the least of their problems.

If money were no deterrent to you, would you sign up to visit the moon?

The FBI, Bigfoot and the best little book you haven’t read yet.

YESTERDAY, the FBI released results of an alleged Bigfoot hair sample from 1975 in this very interesting report. You can read it HERE for yourself for the results. I’ll just say…the truth is still out there, my friends. And if you’re wondering why there has never been a Bigfoot/Sasquatch/Yeti caught, it’s because they are human/animal shapeshifters or skin-walkers as the Native American cultures call them.

Yep, I wrote a fun book about it called Shifted In Seattle.

It’s my favorite story I’ve written so far. Come read for yourself on Amazon or Kindle Unlimited. Let me know what you think!

No one’s ever captured a Sasquatch. 

Until now. 

Sasquatches have roamed the Pacific Northwest for centuries, hiding in the wilds of the northern territories and protected by the Lummi nation. 

When Seattle author Ethan Lane’s secret is exposed after a first date with Ruby Parsons goes wonderfully right, then horribly wrong, he’s faced with betraying his clan or losing his only chance at true love and a normal life.

Sometimes love gets hairy.

Hello! I’m BAAAAAACK!

I know it’s been a good long time since you’ve heard from me. I took a long break from writing after the death of my mother in November 2016. Recently, I’ve been reinvigorated and begun working on Reap & Reckon, the final book in the Reaper Series.

Poor Ruth, she’s been pregnant for almost three years now, lol.

I promise not to bombard you with mail. I hate that, too. So. Much.

Thank you so much for reading and for your continued support.

I look forward to keeping you updated here and on social media.
