Never fear, I have thoughts to share anyway. Just FYI this will be an exclusive discussion of the Distant Worlds Series so don't be disappointed if we get to the end and no Keeping Her or Dragon Mage is as much as hinted at.
I have been working on Salvage Rights, as most of you know already. (It is doing well in presale. Yay!) The writing is going exceedingly fast and I will be finished this week, ready to go into editing and re-writes. Did I mention how much fun it is to write this book? It's really criminal that I get paid to do this, I enjoy it so much.
I just introduced a new character to myself who I really like, and will be featured in a future book of his own. While she hasn't shown up yet, the precocious and sweet Lara is perfect for this new character. She is going to be quite the challenge to keep safe with her propensity to flit about the universe and get into scrapes (helping of course). And she is just so young at heart, she needs a true romantic soul to enjoy her brand of trouble. And folks you can be sure her father the high ambassador and his faithful space marines are going to hate him with a fiery passion. He's so completely wrong for her. Sigh. Good times.
At first I thought to pair her with Tolan Lark, but she is just too innocent for that scoundrel. His book is going to feature a mate who can take him on in a verbal smack-down or a physical fight. Plus she has to be just a bit jaded to handle a Shakien Mate, and with his drive to take down the games I figure he is going to need a fighter. We will have to see who shows up. Also introduced in this book is Captain Tyber Relian. Wait until you get a load of him. I might still be trying to figure out the name of his salvage ship (dang it) but the man himself is a character I created long before I started The Journey's End. In fact I think I can date him to about the time I watched Firefly for the first time.
Space cowboys, and intergalactic pirates, where's the wrong?
