With books 1-4 now published in my U-SAM Sci-Fi Adventure series, I am now busily writing book 5. It has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience and the best part has been immersing myself in the minds of the characters in the adventures.
U-SAM, the protagonist in the series was born out of the idea that most sci-fi books I had read always seemed to have a male lead. I thought it would be interesting to turn it on its head and not only have a girl hero but another prominent female character, particularly a certain despicable space pirate who you will get acquainted with in Book 1 – Apollo Explorer.
The series centers around U-SAM and her extremely diverse crew, who are thrown together in unusual circumstances and build quite a remarkable team. I am not going to say too much as it would be a spoiler – let’s just say they have become some of my very best friends…even though they only exist in print and in my mind. When I was a kid I had an imaginary friend – now, a lot older, I have an imaginary gang of friends!
I have a fantastic editor who has been a revelation. She is accurate, meticulous, and tells me exactly as it is, which is invaluable. It is no good being a writer who can’t take criticism. If you only want praise as a writer you’re in the wrong profession. I never see getting things wrong as a failure but as a learning curve, no matter how much it hurts!
I have found a great cover designer. I was going to do the covers myself as I am pretty handy with Photoshop but found it so time-consuming that the writing was suffering. I think you will agree that the covers really stand out! I relented and put the cover for book 4 myself and was really pleased with the result.
The prequel to the U-SAM series is free to download. It is a ‘long, short’ prequel, if that makes sense, as it is almost bordering on being a novella at 14,000 words and tracks U-SAM from her first day at the Federation Moonbase Academy through to her first assignment.
I have done quite a bit of writing in the past and still do a fair amount of content for my other websites. I was starting to get itchy feet to get back into writing a new book in a different genre and that itch got so bad I had to scratch it!
My main objective on this site is to update the progress of my indie author books. I will also be posting useful information to would-be authors so you can see what helped my progress and what didn’t. It’s going to be an interesting ride as this has been quite a long time in the planning.
I have plenty of ideas to share and write about and hope this site will build into something you will find really helpful and of value.
