Vegas...home of pervy ideas.

So...last week I went to Las Vegas for 7 days. I saw Cirque's 'O', the knights in the Tournament of Kings, and Thunder From Down Under. Oddly enough, it was the Cirque performance that stimulated my plotting and scheming genes. Some time in the future there will be a book/short story by me that will combine all three of those ideas into a Terran Times book that will occur back on earth.
That's right. there are aliens amongst us and they are living in Vegas as performers...is anyone surprised?





The above Old Tyme photo taken at the Buffalo Photo shop in Circus Circus has my two friends and my humble self. In order from left to right, Barb, Viola (smirk), and Gale.   I still can't believe that they let me hold a gun. (barrel was empty, chambers were empty and it was a replica so no danger of my finger in the trigger).

Out of all the hotels visited in the days I was there, the most fun I had was at Circus Circus. It suits me in some ways I can't describe. :)

Oh, and Tomorrow NIGHT marks the release of Escaping Lightning. My favourite of the fairy tales at Trapezium so far.

My Apologies

Sorry that it has been so long since I posted. I have been wrestling with a slight problem of well...it isn't writer's block, but it is writer's dribble.
Currently, I am working on Intercept, the third book in my Drai/Terran times tales.
Knowing how my characters will react to stimuli is normally an easy thing for me, but Maud has been fighting me all the way. She simply shuts down and while that is a personality trait i am familiar with, it is a hard one to write in an interesting manner.

I am confident that she will snap out of it soon, but working to get her into a situation where she can relax is going to be tricky.
This trickiness has marked Intact, Intensity, and the last two Sector Guard books. the only books that want to come free of my mind easily are the fairy tales and only one of those is released per month.

and so...now you know the reason for my silence. i just couldn't think of what to say. One more block in an autumn of headaches.
