It Felt Like a Star Trek Episode

Posted on by Grace

In the weeks since Firmament: Reversal Zone was released, I’ve been very happy to see how readers have been enjoying it thus far. Honestly, I think it’s my favorite of the four books that are currently out. And I’ve actually been sitting on the idea since before the Firmament series even began–the basic premise was part of my very first sci-fi enterprise, Journey to Eternity. Like most early attempts of mine, this story was not much good at all, but I loved the idea of the reversal and tucked it away for later. More than ten years later.

What are … Keep reading

Spoiler Alert

Posted on by Grace

Last night, I watched Christopher Nolan’s Memento with my boyfriend. It was my first time seeing it, though I had more or less enjoyed other Nolan films such as The Dark Knight, Interstellar, and my personal favorite, Inception. Nolan is known for mind-bending films, and I love the complication, the race to mentally keep up with the story, and the depth. But I’m always torn about one aspect of his movies–he tends to include something in the last five minutes that completely subverts the entire rest of the story.

[vague spoilers ahead]

In Memento, we find that what we thought … Keep reading

Coming Soon…

Posted on by Grace

Just a few days before Firmament: Reversal Zone is available! I’m getting positively giddy at the thought of sharing it with you. I got to thinking, though, what if somebody is interested, but hasn’t read the rest of the series? So to help out with that, I’m making the Firmament: Radialloy ebook a free download for the week! Starting tomorrow and going through Saturday the 8th, you can get the first book in the series free. What about the second book, Firmament: In His Image? It’ll be 99c for that time. And the third, Firmament: Machiavellian? It’ll be $1.99. This … Keep reading

Sometimes I’m Not Creative

Posted on by Grace

Well, I haven’t posted in almost a month, contrary to my most sincere desires. My schedule these days looks a bit like this:

Get up around 6:30 to head to the gym.

Work out for about 45 minutes.

Get to work by 8:00 and spend the day answering phones, entering things into the computer, and finding little snippets of time to write where I can.

Get off work at 5:00 and find some dinner, then do one of three things:

– Write/other work – Hang out with my boyfriend – Socialize in some manner–church, writers group, friends, etc.

Then collapse … Keep reading
