Writing Progress

Jonaldy Ammonett

The Postal Marine Series is set nearly two millenia in the future. When I conceived of the series, I wanted to recognize that human nature is immutable regardless of time. The Invisible Hand still operates. The Postal Marines are there to try to manage it a bit. As I am editing Luctation, I wanted to chat a bit about the main character: Jonaldy Ammonett.

Finished Bellicose Draft
I started Bellicose in 2012, after two other projects were stalled. I slowly worked my way to completion in 2013. After committing to only 500 words per day, I completed the draft on 21 January. You can see my writing progress as I continue. My next step is to pick up the Luctation draft and work it through to completion.
Work in Progress: Bellicose

I’m finally in pre-production for Bellicose, the first of the Postal Marine Series. Last Fall, I published Scintilla, which was always meant to be the fourth of a series of five novels. I quickly plotted the second novel Luctation, a novel portraying Jonaldy, Scintilla’s villain as the hero. After grinding out 20,000 words, I felt that something wasn’t quite right. Since then, I’ve been wrestling over how to proceed.
