Blue Dot: Book One

The year is 2023.

NASA has left the ISS in disgrace, China’s new moonshot has exploded, and SpaceX is still wasting time in low-earth-orbit. Almost seventy years after the first satellite launch, mankind is still stuck on Earth.

But there’s a new company on the scene. They have immense funding, a secretly built spacecraft, and morally questionable plans to commercialize the entire solar system.

They are Blue Dot Inc.

And they’re not going to make the same mistakes everyone else did.

Telemetry
A Sci-Fi Short Story

For decades, mankind has listened to the stars, hoping to find a signal.

But others have been listening for much longer… So long it’s making them kind of crazy.

March 6th, 2017 Well, it’s been a frantic week trying to get Blue Dot: Book One ready for release. When I put out “Telemetry”, I was following my usual method of “Do now, fix later”.  It was more important to me to learn the entire process from start to finish than making sure everything was

March 4th, 2017 Well, we’re just days away from launching Blue Dot: Book One. As promised, I’ve been working on a good blurb/synopsis to describe the book.  Here is my best effort thus far: It is 2023, and Space is hard. China’s moonshot has just exploded, NASA has vacated the ISS, and SpaceX is stuck

March 3, 2017 Well, I am currently VERY close to finalizing the release of Blue Dot: Book One, and I couldn’t be more excited. It’s been through three separate edits by close friends, and then I used Grammerly for a 4th edit, which surprisingly picked up a lot that had been missed.  The copyright is

March 1, 2017 Well, the editing/revising of Blue Dot: Book One is going very well and I expect a release early next week.  This is a 22,000 word Novella, and will be the introductory story in a new ‘universe’ I intend to create.  Book Two’s outline is being tweaked and I have even started writing

February 27th, 2017 Well, the new cover art for Telemetry is live, both here on the site and on Amazon.  You can view it (and hopefully purchase the story for $1), here or on Amazon.  The cover art was created by my very favorite graphic designer, who also happens to be my lovely wife. Publishing

February 23, 2017 Ah – What’s Next?  As a devout West Wing fan, this is one of my favorite questions. One week ago, I launched this site and got my first short story published on Amazon.  It was a proud moment, but seeing nothing but a single short story available on all these author pages

February 21, 2017 Since I published a short story on Amazon, I get an Author Page there, which makes it one-click easy for any interested folks to follow me, and get updated whenever I publish something new.  You can check it out right here. In addition I’ve ensured both myself and Telemetry are listed on

February 20, 2017 Greetings, and welcome to the newest feature of the site, a blog! I admit that I struggled with the decision as to whether or not I should be blogging.  Does the internet really need another blog from a fledgling author, struggling to promote their work and sharing their thoughts about their own
