For those who have read Discovery, and await for the publication of Conception, your wait is almost over.

The artwork has been started for the cover, I had to wait for the artist for Walking Dead to complete that work before he could begin to work the concept for Conception's cover.

Some additional news, I am now starting to ramp up the effort behind writing the concluding volume of the trilogy, Confrontation.

The first two volumes were written to be stand-alone novels, neither requiring the reading of the other to appreciate. However, this third volume, which picks up the action in the Darkside Universe about a decade after the events in Discovery and Conception concluded will require some backstory.

Since there is so much back story in the first two volumes that lead the reader into the events, and flow, of the concluding volume I am facing issues of how much expository back story to include.

Ah yes, the trials and tribulations of following Daniel Burnham's missive of "Make No Small Plans."

There is a time and place for info dumping. My only advice is to provide just enough info to peek the new readers' interest, while at the same time recessing the current readers' memory; sort of a 'nod, okay I understand'. All the while not disrupting the flow of the story.   

Just to get into the flow of the next book, I would write a large backstory - an entire chapter. Then I would edit it down after finishing the rest of the book. Nice to spread the backstory throughout.

Changes in America after World War I

            World War I (WWI) is an influential occurrence that had a great impact in the social, economic and political environment of the United States of America. However, as I was writing for one essay writing serviceunderstanding these impacts also requires an analysis of the period preceding this war. Between 1905 and 1915, America relied on the debts they collected from the international capital markets.[1] Politically, the country adopted an isolationist foreign policy so as to conquer other countries such as Cuba and the Philippines. Socially, the country had good relations with Europe but it remained feared by other countries. These situations changed after the war. This paper analyses the social, political and economic situations in America after WWI showing that the war had both negative and…

Schematic of the experimental setup. (A) Heat flows from the hot to the cold spin (at thermal contact) when both are initially uncorrelated. This corresponds to the standard thermodynamic arrow of time. For initially quantum correlated spins, heat is spontaneously transferred from the cold to the hot spin. The arrow of time is here reversed. (B) View of the magnetometer used in our NMR experiment. A superconducting magnet, producing a high…

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
