Snippet 02: Chapter 3 of The Gate – Conduit
avatar

Another entry from the First Draft archives. It’s been edited but will likely change a little through future revision and editing steps. The third chapter of my “The Gate” series, a story where an alien intelligence gathering and rescue mission goes dreadfully wrong and exposes a dark web of subterfuge woven by an insidious enemy. Here I expand the set a little, introduce yet more players into the story and introduce a little friction between the main characters.


Bill looked at his security monitors one last time before laying back in bed. Not a blip. But then, there never has been a blip.… Read the rest...

Snippet 02: Chapter 2 of The Gate – Conduit

I inserted a new chapter 2, moving the old chapter 2 into the chapter 3 slot. It fleshed out the MC a little better and gave more insight to the crisis the MC was suffering. Chapter 2 of tentatively named “The Gate” series, where a down and out CIA agent is tasked with an insultingly menial job which turned into something that had interstellar consequences. Rough edit at the moment.


“You’re going back in too soon. The Conduit is getting feedback.”

Karan’za lay down on the mat and looked up at the living ceiling. She traced the weave of the branches overhead as she mentally prepared to enter a mind of an unwitting Terran.… Read the rest...

Here it is, in all it’s first draft, unrevised, and quickly edited glory. The first chapter of my “The Gate” series, a story where an alien intelligence gathering and rescue mission goes dreadfully wrong and exposes a dark web of subterfuge woven by an insidious enemy. This is where I take a lot of loose strings and begin weaving the tapestry of the story. Enjoy:


She thought she’d be safe there in the alley. It was dark and quiet. But not quiet enough. The cacophony of Terran life around her was still deafening. She longed for the forest, where life seemed to take a more orderly tone.… Read the rest...

Species: Keratian

My Vampire

In my universe, the source of Terra’s vampire legends are a species called Keratians. Their home is Toros, a large world that orbits a bright red dwarf. The gravity there is relatively intense. We would weigh five times greater were we to step onto Toros. That may not seem like much, but consider that on Uranus, you would weigh a little over eight times what you do now.

Keratians are humanoids and can easily be modified to appear human, provided they are not examined too closely. Their morphology is anything but, however. True to vampire lore, they do have a liquid diet.… Read the rest...

Snippet 02 from: The Cooperative – Destination
avatar

Here is an experimental snippet from the first book of The Cooperative series. Needs editing and will probably be radically changed once I start writing that series. James is tormented by constant visions related to an experience he had, an experience that took him briefly to the beginning of the Cooperative. He is determined to sort the visions out and has been obsessively trying to find a way back. The intrusion of the aliens to Earth exposed him to a Gatekeeper named Steven Crow that he had been seeing in his visions. This Gatekeeper appeared for all intents and purposes to be the one the Younger was talking about, the one who was not immersed in time; and the one who was key to getting him back to Aris, who was supposed to be his wife.… Read the rest...
