I’ve updated the Music page with links to recordings of the Duke Nukem 3D and Stargunner soundtracks. I’ll post a link to the Shadow Warrior soundtrack as soon as I can find a good collection (can’t host it locally for various reasons). Have a look, and drop me a line on the Contact page if you have any suggestions or questions!
My novel got another nibble from a publisher a couple of days after the #SFFpit event. I’ll keep them in mind, but I still want to get an agent instead of dealing directly with a publisher.
You’ll note that the site is back to its old look. My web consultant (a.k.a. my wife) hated the change I made. I got rid of it.
Finally, I’ve been working with someone on Scribophile to get my novel synopsis down from 1066 words to something closer to 650. I’m at 810 words now, and I honestly don’t think that I can take it down any further without killing the feel of the plot or minimalising my main character’s emotional connection. It’ll get critiqued this coming week starting Monday 2015-12-14, so please wish me luck!
I did not know it until it was almost too late, but Thursday (2015-12-10) was a #SFFpit day. See my previous entries on #PitMad for details. The one on Thursday was restricted to Science Fiction and Fantasy genres. And, believe it or not, I got a “like” on one of my Twitter pitches! Here it is:
The fundamental forces that govern the universe are at stake. Can 22yo Travis keep their control out of mercenary hands? #SFFPit #SF #NA
The #SF and #NA hashtags stand for Science Fiction and New Adult. I’m not sure I got the second one right. In any case, someone from what appears to be a publishing house in Ireland gave this a favorite! While I’m thankful for it (in case they’re reading), I’m not sure if I’m going to submit to them. They seem to be geared toward Kindle publishing, and my goal is to get a physical publisher to take on my work.
We’ll see what happens. In the meantime, this means progress!
I’ve switched the background image to something with a darker shade of blue and a bit of texture. If you like it or hate it, let me know by dropping me a note at the contact page. Thanks!
