I have a variety of different projects on the go. Each of the many projects is at a different stage.
Here are some of them.
Felix the Swift
Felix the Swift, an alias, lived in the land of Agersolum, in the Empire of Aurre. Felix was a thief and a good one at that. He was arguably the best thief in the city. A pimple on the Duke’s rear end.
When his last job, quite possibly his grandest, goes bad it costs his apprentice’s life and the freedom of everyone he has ever loved. His entire family and he are sold into slavery to pay for his crimes.
Felix gets dragged across the globe and thrown into a world of magic, and Gods. He must face High-Princes, assassins, traitorous brothers, Gods, and the scorching heat of the desert. Felix must overcome the obstacles that have been laid against him to become truly free.
Felix must find a way back to his homeland and a way to free his family. Or he fails and the hostile environment will overtake him as it has to so many others.
This story is set in my Agersolum world. I was intended as a stand-alone, but there is too much story. It is not a trilogy, but that status may change as well. I am discovering more and more stories to write about Felix.
The first book is ready to go to an editor, once I find one. I am writing the second book and I am about 16% done the first draft. It is the project that I am working on until I must start my NaNo project.
Des O’Neal is an ordinary boy living his life normally. He went to school, went to his part-time job. Studied hard and got good grades. One day it all changed when he got pulled into a world of spies, intrigue, and saboteur attacks. All of this at his home on a space station colony. The station orbits the planet Jupiter. Des, a smart boy who loves getting into trouble, finds himself tangled up in a plot involving missiles, spies, saboteurs, and robots. He must do what it takes to save himself, his family and the entire station.
Space Courier is a middle-grade sci-fi that I am co-writing with my seven-year-old son. It is told in 5 books. The first book is written and edited. The second has a first draft done on it. I am currently trying to figure out covers and marketing. The plan is to publish it on Amazon. I am planning on finishing the remaining books for this years NaNoWriMo.
The Chronicles of Evana Sweetland.
Evana Sweetland lived in a small village on a small island in the middle of the Great Archipelago. She was a happy seven-year-old that enjoyed dancing and swimming in the ocean. But nothing exciting ever happened to her. Then that all changed when she found the gem. The gem gave her magical powers over the wind and the weather. When monsters attacked her village, she was forced to do what a seven-year-old would never want to do. Fight the monster when she should be running away.
The story of Evana is an Early Chapter book aimed at children in the first three grades. It is co-written between me and my five-year-old daughter. It will be told in 5 books and I plan on writing the story during this years NaNoWriMo.
Darren Cunningham is a standard teenager growing up in Vancouver. He has a younger brother and an older sister. When his mother gets diagnosed with terminal cancer, a plan hatches for him to get shipped off to live with his estranged father, who lives in Tokyo, Japan. During a visit to Tokyo to set up his final years of high school, and living accommodations, Yellowstone National Park blows its top. It sets off a chain of earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions that span the globe. In a strange land, with a strange culture, filled with strangers, Darren must fight through the hordes of hungry people to find his new friends, his younger brother and his father before time runs out.
Culture Shock was written last year for NaNoWriMo. It is still in the first draft. It needs a rewrite to flesh out a couple issues that I found when I went to edit it. The plan is that it is Book One of a trilogy.
The Inescapable Game
It was a normal boring day to nineteen-year-old Shamus Smith. Then the aliens came. They didn’t come in peace and prosperity, or in war and bloodshed. They came for entertainment. Two million humans were forcefully transported from there normal lives onto a giant space station that orbited Jupiter. Naked and afraid, Shamus woke up as a prisoner in the middle of the game. Now faced with alien creatures, insane robots, game masters who want to kill him, and an alien Player Controller that won’t shut up in his head, Shamus must do what he must to survive the game. Maybe even beat the game. But how much of his humanity must he give up to earn his freedom?
This is a science fiction story and I am thinking that it is going to be multiple books long. How many, I have no idea. There are so many different little stories that I can tell about Shamus and his adventures in the game.
