Nothing mind-blowing here. I think my brain is overloaded right now. I've been polishing my third book so that I can get it to the publisher by the end of March. I take periodic detours into books four and five and then back in time to an era before any of the events described in the series to write more background. After all, the characters need memories and they need to have something to remember. So I create them.
I am also working on our online travel business web site, "Isles Britannic". We put the whole thing in "cold storage" when I went off to the war. My wife and I started the business in 1998, and we were just making it profitable when foot and mouth struck the British Isles. It was a heavy blow to us since we specialized in travel to the British Isles. Right when the business recovered from FMD, 9/11 happened. Deborah went back to nursing and I went back to training soldiers. We both felt a need to do something more important with our lives. We had planned on resurecting the business last summer, but never got around to it. I was planning on returning to Iraq, but things didn't work out that way. I had a false start on getting things going again in January due to a potential excursion to Afghanistan, which also did not pan out. So maybe I really am a civilian now for good.
So, just to show off a little, here are cover pictures of "The Sword's Prophecy" and "Well of Power" along with a sneak peak at the artwork for "Destiny's Bride".

Well, I've been thinking about doing this for a long time. What finally got me motivated? A friend and fellow writer. This the start to musings of many sorts. Just a wee hello to the blogosphere. My interests are wide and varied, so don't get too comfortable thinking you have me figured out.
