I know it’s been too long since I’ve released a book. I’m not George RR Martin in that category, but it’s been 11 months and that’s too long to be honest. The good news is I have the third book in the Worlds at War series sitting next to me on my


Space Opera can be short.

Space Opera, in all its magnificence, doesn’t have to be a long story. It can be short and tell an interesting or funny tale. And even if it’s used to sell a product, the story itself can be entertaining.



What if life is everywhere, but we haven’t found it because there is no land on the worlds it exists on? What if Earth is an ultra rare world in that it doesn’t have deep oceans covering the entire surface. It would only take another 7 miles of ocean depth to ensure
