The restaurant i work for is almost over. this means a few things for me.

1. Money is going to start getting tighter.

2. Days off will happen

3. Book writing will start again. thats a big YAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYY for this one.

outside of working i have started to build bios for my characters for my books. this consists of pictures that i can find of the people that inspired the characters. some were easy to come by some were harder. but the work on the bios has started.

i have a sci-fi series that i shelved a little while ago that i’m building now for a slow start. No Dates or real info on this series but i choose 2 very cute actresses as inspiration.

The steampunk mash-up. which is my main focus for right now. is what i’m building now. the inspiration for the main characters are set. Captain Smashtower, Andrew Savage, Maggie, Kennith , Danny Two- Pints, Raven and Anna. i’m still working on the Evil King and the higher officers of the Crimson Guard.

well its not alot of info but i hope it might peak your interest. and i hope to give you more info soon.

This short is about the Harena during the battle to reclaim their home. this will be out in ebook form. I hope you upload it to Amazon, Smashwords, Kobo, and to the website @eprintedbooks.com.

3. Talon’s Tale– is a second short story. this story will see the talon as he grows up in a hostile environment. on his home planet. I hope you upload it to AmazonSmashwordsKobo, and to the website @eprintedbooks.com.

4.Book 2 of the Native Protectors series is titled Goliath. This book will most likely be out the second part of the year. I hope you upload it to AmazonSmashwordsKobo, and to the website @eprintedbooks.com.

5. i plan to go to PHXCC13 in May. just to enjoy the company. this is the closet thing to a vacation i’ll have for the year.

6. i have two other book series started that i hope to have the first ebooks published around May. The first is Like Father, Like Son this is the first of many SteamPunk books. This i hope will be my largest series with 18 books in total and many short stories. the second series is a post apocalyptic series. three books planed.

7. in Oct. of this year the Arizona Browncoats will host the Browncoat Ball in Phoenix. This i will be at also as an Arizona Browncoat.

These are my plans as of now.



After many many months of writing and having 2 editors work on the editing. i have released my Book. Spirit Lance the first book of the Native Protectors series is out.

While working on this project i have come up with many other book ideas and even lengthen this series to eight books as of now. i have a Author page on Amazon now which is pretty cool. Which is here. i hope that in about 90 days to have a short story and a fusion version of Spirit Lance. What that mean is the short story will be fused with spirit lance to give you a broader view of the galaxy I’ve created.

The second book in this series will out near the end of the year. then i’ll be working on a second series. The first book in that series to be out near the first of the year. I hope from that point to move to one series to the other series. at least 3 books a year. I am up to 34 book ideas as of right now. Many have not even been plotted yet. but most will be soon. with the first book done . I will be working on Series and book plots for a few weeks. then i’ll increase my work on the short story and the second book. and also be working on the first of my SteamPunk series. The SteamPunk series will be at least 12 books and maybe even larger. i see this series being massive. but we will see how the people like it first.

I also will be working on a second sci-fi series. a western series and a few Fantasy novels. and even thought a history of my life. but that would not come out for many years.

this should offer a small glimpse of what is coming in my writing.

And remember that some authors like my self work to help others also. A small portion of my income will be going to 5 different charities. the first on has already set in stone . Kids Need To Read (KNTR) 4 others will be decided later.

As my time frees up from having to work for others and able to spend more time on writing . I can spend more time supporting other Authors in the area. which is some thing i like to do.

Also i wanted to include a description of my first book and series:

A teenage native american boy Sam takes charge as he discovers there is more going on in space than he previously knew. An alien race war is brewing that threatens all life in the galaxy, and only he with the help of a few friends can stop them. Guided by a mysterious old man and a friendly alien comrade, Sam must muster all his courage to defeat an ancient enemy. With his sidearm “Lucy” on his hip, and his Browncoat on his back he leads them on a wild ride filled with action and adventure.


Well the PHXCC12 is over. Now it is time to prepare for PHXCC13 hehe.  i have a year to get ready will i be ready? Every year i realize there was something that i would have changed. I would see the stars away from the panels that they were on and even say hi! but i walk away instead of getting a picture with them. Some times i wish i was that forward. I Saw Dina Meyer. in the lobby of the hotel and said hi shook her hand and left her alone. This is one of the women of Sci-Fi that i love to watch. and it helps that she is one of the Prettiest Actress I’ve ever seen. A missed opertuneity .

I was walking in the hotel one morning and meet Ed Asner in the hall and all i said when he asked a question. was no i have no clue.

my wife and i went to have breakfast one morning and had Phil Lamarr sitting 2 tables away. Wil Wheaton was standing and talking to a few guests. Then SALLI RICHARDSON-WHITFIELD came in and sat down 2 tables away. I like to know that i left them alone for the reason that they are people first then the Stars they are. Maybe next year.

this time i will be getting a room for the extra night. i will get the better camera so that my memories are not blurry. i want the HD video camera. so if James A. Owens sings again at the Geek Prom i’ll be ready. And a digital recorder for the Authors that can tell me how to be a better author.

i only collected one business card from a local group and that was Captain Blackstrap Gennie from The Dreadfleet. Which i have a few short chats with on Google Plus.

I did get the chance to talk to and get a picture with Kevin Hearne the Author of The Iron Druid Chronicles. there are 4 books out as of now but i think 9 are planned.

I added a few new people to my twitter feed that i follow.

But for the most part i got to hang with the cast and crew of Western X. this i have talked about before. they are a local group of actors that are working on a western web series. www.westernxtheshow.com. I got to meet with the main actors and a few of the supporting actors. Vernon Wells is the big name on the project and he is one of the producers. The main creative head is Michael Flores. He wrote , edited and lives and sleeps this project. it has been in his blood for a few years. Michael was nice enough to get the crew to sign a shirt for me that is now hanging on my wall till i can get a few more of the cast to sign it.

i guess that is it for my comments on PHXCC12. it might not sound like i had a great time but i did. the concrud has gotten a hold of me and i’m still tired from it. i’m really getting ready for next year. i will be prepared for it!!!!

Now for my book (Spirit Lance) this is the first book that I’ve have tried to write. There are 6 that i plan to write in this series. I have 31 book projects in my head and some well under way to becoming books. the Native Protector Series may be a young adult book series. but it may also have a few things that most adults may like in a book. So please give it a try when it is released. on that note i am hoping that it might be released later this weekend but now it is looking to be pushed back again to next week. Please follow me on twitter under the user name of @Smashtowerbooks . to keep up on how the book is doing. and my other projects.

I have 15 pages of my short story done. this short story is a different view leading up to a big battle in my book Spirit Lance. and will be released a few months after Spirit Lance is released. at the same time i’m going to try something different and re-release Spirit Lance with the short story Fused with it. I believe i will name this book Spirit Lance fusion. Keep an eye open for it.

I’m also about 1/4 to 1/2 way done book 2 in the series which its name is Goliath. I hope to release Goliath near the end of the year.

On another note the second series that i’m starting is a SteamPunk series. This project has taken hold and won’t let go. There at least 12 books in this planned project and maybe will go even farther than that. I see a character rich book series. I’m seven pages into the first book of this series. and still writing the Plot for book 2 in that series.

Ok, I guess I’ve been babbling abit. so i will cut this short. keep an eye out for what is coming up. Oh i’ll be rebuilding my website soon hope to have lots of info and stuff on there when it is ready.

later all.
