Mid-year Review of My Writing Accomplishments

Books Published or in Progress in the first half of the year

In total, I have published 17 novel-length books, 2 novellas and 4 short stories since I began in 2014.

Alarik, Book 4 of Taxyon Space
Near future Sci-Fi adventure and romance starring alien mermen 

Two people fleeing their planets discover a shared destiny.
When an alien spacecraft crashes on Mars, the repercussions sweep throughout the solar system and endanger the fragile new alliance with the Warrish mermen.  
Alarik Kenton Tallis, Eldest of three brothers, was forced to infiltrate human society on Earth as a spy to insure his injured brother receives proper medical care. But when his transmissions are detected, he must flee the planet.
On Mars, Phoebe Wong, a veterinary scientist with dubious family connections, is desperate to escape the underworld gangs terrorizing the domed city. She jumps at the chance to join the colonists bound for a distant exoplanet.
Their paths converge on a space ferry bound for the outer planets. Troubles arising from the mysterious spacecraft pursue them to Jupiter. Will their flight end on Europa, the hyperspace gateway to the stars protected by three diverse species?

Coming later in the summer: Cosmic Lock, Book 6 in the Grand Masters’ Galaxy
Teleport across the galaxy and beyond in this SciFi fantasy adventure with super psychics, aliens and dragons. 
 Cosmic Lock

Grand Masters Violet and Athanor Griffin return from beyond the Cosmic Rift with two shiploads of rescued children and escaped slaves, but their enemies have not been idle in their absence. Avalon is in flames and their little son is missing. Finding him may be the easiest problem for the powerful couple. They must unite the fractious Grand Masters, stop the bloodsucking Ixioths from enslaving sentients, and seal the Rift to prevent new incursions of the vindictive Nulls. Can they overcome the challenges and secure peace for the galaxy? The clock is ticking. They have twelve days to find a solution.
Read the exciting conclusion to the Cosmic Trilogy, second part of the epic science fantasy series.

Strategic Goals
I’m aiming to write longer series and pump sales by promoting the first book.
My longest series, Grand Masters’ Galaxy, has a short prequel and five full-length novels. I plan to complete the sixth book soon.  
Taxyon Space, my second longest series, includes four novels and a short story. The fourth Book, Alarik, was conceived as the start of a trilogy about the three brothers in the Flaming Comets Triad. Each book will focus on a different brother. Alarik is the oldest brother. The next two books will be titled Baswin and Karrik after the two younger brothers.
Secret Supers has three novels plus a short story.
Atrapako on Eden comprises three novels.

Plans for future stories

In addition to books 5 and 6 in Taxyon Space, I am considering two other possibilities.

One idea is writing a second medieval romance to follow Dame Audrey

 Another idea is writing a Gaslamp fantasy. I have a plot in mind for a story set in Britain in 1918 or 1919.
