Recently I’ve been writing more of Vampire in Space and Dreams of a World Unknown. The switch between science fiction and fantasy genres is a fun hop. I wrote the conclusion of Dreams of a World Unknown. I haven’t finished a book since high school so it’s a big accomplishment. Now I have to focus on editing the rough draft.
I’m hoping that with each new book I write I’ll be better at putting stories together. A lot of authors I listen to on podcasts took a long time to write their first book. Right now I have a rough draft finished and I need the editing done to move forward with publishing.
Publishing has been a dream of mine since I was 12 years old. I was first inspired by Orson Scott Card and Anne McCaffrey. Their stories changed my life and the way I looked at the world. To me books are sacred. Even works of fiction have the power to change how we look at the world. I believe the right book can help people grow their empathy and seek a better path.

Part II of Vampire in Space has been released on my Patreon for the paid tier. I hope my patrons enjoy it. I have been thinking of releasing more short stories based on the Vampire in Space world. I know the title is silly, but it plainly states what the story is about. I want to make the whole story free for people who sign up for my newsletter, but I’m still struggling to get the newsletter set up. There’s some technical stuff I have to sort out to set up the newsletter. Hopefully I can set that up sooner rather than later.
I’m still in the process of writing the tentatively titled, Dreams of a World Unknown. I plan to share exclusive previews of excerpts of the story on my Patreon for patrons. If any of you are interested in seeing exclusive excerpts on my website let me know in the comments below. Thank you for following my writer journey. I’m hopeful that soon I’ll finish my novel and have my first book to share with you sometime this year.
