I have gotten such nice responses from people who viewed by Sirius Spacescapes Gallery, that I decided to expand a little more to offer some of my "down-to-earth" landscape art. Simply pull down the Spacescapes tab and the Landscapes tab should show up right beneath. Once again, its an honor and privilege to be able to share this work with you. The pictures have been years in the making, some going all the way back to the '90s.
Recent email conversations with the publisher assures me that The Epsilon Wish is moving along through the process on schedule, and that everything is fine. By the middle of the summer, I should be able to hold a copy of the book in my hand. After that, all of you can too!
At the suggestion and encouragement of a number of friends, I now have the images in the Sirius Spacescapes Gallery set up to accommodate poster enlargement orders by email. Come check it out!
Until I'm able to get set up for on-line ordering through PayPal or other credit card services, we'll have to use a combination of email order and snail mail payment by chekc or Money Order.
The publisher, Randy Young, just invited me to take part in Sleepytown Press's presentation at the Decatur, GA Book Fair in September. This is an annual event for him, and he likes to feature the books written by Sleeptown's authors, especially the books "just out." I believe I'm going to be Sleeptown's first Science Fiction writer, so perhaps that will draw some new attention. Though I don't have a firm release date for the novel, I'm encouraged by that offer that he believes The EpsilonWish will be available by then. Here's hoping!!!
Randy has also interviewed me (via email response) to be a Featured Author on the Sleepytown website later this summer, presumably coinciding with the release of The Epsilon Wish. Please check out his website at www.sleepytownpress.com to get a feel for the other works he's published. He's interested in expanding a primarily children book base into other genres. He loves to work with new writers who have had trouble breaking into the larger publishing houses. Many of those won't accept un-agented submissions, and many agents will only take on new clients who have demonstrated a track record of published (profitable) work. So, smaller presses like Sleepytown are the way around that connundrum. I feel blessed.
