Apologies (Sort of) · 7:41pm July 16th

So I know content on the site these last few weeks has been light. Usually there’s another decent-sized post on something or other in the publishing industry each week, and for the last few weeks their hasn’t been. And yeah, I’m sorry about that.

Weekly Update: Mock that Mockup · 2:30am Dec 3rd, 2020

Hey folks! Max here with the weekly update. And I’ve got awesome good news, starting with Axtara – Banking and Finance!

The cover is on its way!

Yes! At long last the Axtara cover is coming, and it is going to be glorious. Like the cover for Shadow of an Empire, it will be available in a fantastic 4K background image as well. And once I have the cover, I can start the paperback sample run …

Next Week · 12:51am July 24th

Hey folks. Do you know what happens next week?

After months of work, I get to close the draft for Starforge. Because today? Today I was working on the epilogue. That’s right. The last chapter is over and done. The final battle, from start to finish (and I count start as the moment it engages, not the prelude) weighed in at 68,000 words. The draft right now is sitting at about 493,000 words.

The Bi-Weekly Update: Road of Recovery · 8:54pm March 3rd

Hello again readers! I’m back! And I feel … Okay, well I’m not quite at 100% yet. I still slept until almost noon today, and am occasionally popping a cough drop into my maw to calm my cavernous coughs … But I’m definitely feeling more like myself than I have since last Friday. I’m hoping that by tomorrow I’ll be back to normal!

Attention Patreon Supporters – Go Vote! · 7:01pm June 9th

Hello readers! Today’s quick post is directed at those that are Patreon Supporters, because you’re getting a chance to pick the name of Pisces’ first major arms manufacturer and R&D lab!

That’s right! Without spoiling anything, near the end of Starforge Anna finds herself in possession of a new weapon produced by a Pisces-based startup. As I was wondering what to name this new company, it hit me … Why not let you decide!

Quick Weekend Update · 8:24pm July 10th

Hey folks! I know, I know, you haven’t heard much from me lately. This week saw a Being a Better Writer post on Saturday, and that was it until now. But … I’ve had good reason.

Starforge is in the last five percent. Yes. It’s that close. So I’ve been just a little occupied. There’s a chance that maybe even next week it might be done. I’d be pumping out a lot of words a day, but there’s still a chance.

Weekly Update · 2:08am Nov 19th, 2020

Short and sweet here guys. I’m still pretty tired. And was tested for Covid-19 last night so … yeah. 72 hours until the results come back. Only symptoms fatigue (a lot of it) and the occasional light headache.

But enough of that. Book updates!

Starforge is now at 163,500 words. I’m running a little slow right now, just doing 2,000 a day instead of 3,000-4,000 and I’m tired through it, but I can’t stop. This story is too important.

Delaying My Fireteam Freelance Thoughts + Other Updates · 7:10pm Aug 28th, 2020

Just a quick update, but I’ve pushed my post on Fireteam Freelance back a few days. It’ll come out next week. Why?

So that there’s more time for readers to post their thoughts to the reader feedback post. A day (less, really) isn’t enough time for most people to respond, and most people react when they hear that a newer, larger post is coming by just ignoring it.

It’s Official: Starforge is the Most Stressful Thing I’ve Ever Written · 8:00pm Oct 16th, 2020

All right, readers. It’s time to come clean. Last night, as I lay trying to sleep at around 4 AM, my mind whirling with questions and maybes and possibilities concerning Starforge, I realized something.

Starforge is officially the most stress-inducing project I’ve worked on in a long time.

Just a News Update. Nothing Spectacular. · 9:04pm Nov 6th, 2020

So … the title says it all. This is an update on things. Nothing big. Mostly Starforge. And why I’ve been quiet this week.

Honestly? I’ve got a little list of non-writing topics I want to throw out some paragraphs on here on the site, but … This week had enough going on, I think.

How bad is it? Well, let me put it this way: Facebook refused to let me run boosts for this week’s Being a Better Writer, because it asked people to go vote.
