Story Fuel: Planet Nine

planet nine, planet 9, solar system, space, science fiction

As a fan of all thing’s science, I regularly peruse the Popular Science website, among other notable scientific based platforms. I’ll skim the headlines and if something jumps out at me, I’ll read it. Otherwise, I continue my path of knowledge seeking adventure. It’s High Adventure, let me tell you! Monday afternoon was no different. I came across this grabby headline—Planet Nine might not actually be a planet—and knew I had to read it.  I mean, who wouldn’t want to? First thoughts … WTF? Do … Read more

Happy New Year!

Hey, everyone. Do you know who I am? It’s me, Paul. I know it’s been a while. Been busy and all. But I’m here to turn a new leaf! Actually, I’ve been quite busy. Life. It happens. Anyway, since my last post all those years ago (it really does feel like it’s been years) I’ve finished my zombie trilogy. Unfortunately, I’ve not done much more than that on the novel front. I’ve tapped out a handful of short stories for various anthologies, but no long … Read more

Turn, Book One of The Humanity’s Edge Trilogy goes into Kindle Scout

Today, I am one step closer to my next Kindle Scout campaign. I say ‘next’ because I’ve already been down this path once before, back in May of last year. I wrote and submitted my novel The Hunted Assassin to the program, but it was, unfortunately, unsuccessful. It was a great experience, though, and I vowed back then that I’d try my hand again at penning something worthy of their selection. Hence, what brings me here today. I’ve submitted my next novel to the Kindle … Read more

Turn, The Title of my W.I.P.

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted to my blog, but I’ve been busy! I’ve been busy creating a brand new world which will consist of its very own Trilogy! Late last year, I got the idea for the story, and I haven’t come up for a breath since. The project is called The Humanity’s Edge Trilogy, and book one is so very close to being complete. Turn has been through several rewrites already, as well as its first pass through editing. I am mid-way through … Read more

My Three Year Publishing Anniversary

Today is a special day. Three years ago, today, I published my first book. It was Linear Shift, Part 1, and although it was a short start to the overall novel, it was motivation enough for me to keep going. Now, today, I have a total of 18 independently published books and am included in 5 anthologies. One of which is an amazon #1 Best Seller. And if I have me way, the next three years will be even more impressive! So, without further ado, please … Read more

My Writing Pipeline

Hello, September! Ok, it’s ten days into my birth month (Happy Birthday, to me!), but things have been a bit busy as of late. After taking my daughter up to college at the end of August, my attention had shifted to Fantasy Football. I take my fantasy team (Meat Popsicles, thankyouverymuch) very seriously. Our draft was on Monday of this week, and I’d spent a fair bit of time preparing for it. It was a blast, and my top secret software (not really a secret) … Read more
