For the first time in too long, I have started to make progress on some work. The last few weeks have been hectic ones in my life and offered little time to focus on the creative process, but as of this week I am back in the saddle to produce some great new stuff.
The next chapter of Lightweight is now under way fully. This one will bounce around the universe quite a bit and unlock some secrets of the Quadrant U long in the works. I'm genuinely excited to see this one come to fruition, but it's still got a ways to go before it is ready to head to Kickstarter.
I have always liked to bounce between projects to keep things fresh. And I have been eyeing Kindle Worlds for awhile now. So I have started my first tale set in one of those worlds. Anyone that knows me will not be surprised to learn I am going to take on the chance to write some G.I. Joe. I have big plans for the franchise as I would like to tell the entire fifty year history of the characters in a series of interconnected adventures. The first will start some interconnecting tissue between the classic character, the Adventure Team and the Real American Hero line before I continue the development over subsequent books.

I really am serious to see this expand into a real epic. After the first story focused on the early era Joe, I want to do tales of all the later eras: Adventure Team, Super Joe, early RAH, sub-team era RAH, Sgt. Savage, Extreme, Valor Vs. Venom and Sigma 6. If I finish them all it will be a true epic. For now I am starting small with a story of the second man to carry the name G.I. Joe and his rescue of a man named Mike Power from enemy hands....
But more on that in the future. In the mean time, keep reading folks and I will keep writing!
