The Greatest Gig is now available . This is a light, fun science fiction story about Chrystal Eagle, starship plumber. It was the first story I wrote in this universe, first with Chrystal Eagle and led to writing my novel Stowaway to Eternity. The novel is set in the same universe, but a different ship and different characters. If things go as planned, it should be out in about a year. I’d like to see it out sooner but there are just so many titles to get out!
This story has been out before, but this is the new preferred edition, available in e-book and paperback formats. Some of the sites are still updating and will be linked when it’s available.
I didn’t sleep well last night. I woke up around 2 AM with leg pain. I took some ibuprofen, had a snack and finished reading the Hamilton book. That’s a fun, long-running series. I’ve started reading Alan Dean Foster‘s Icerigger Trilogy now. I tried going back to sleep, but it never really took.
Up at 5 AM, getting ready, reading during breakfast, and then I worked on the first part of the post before leaving for work.
The rest of the day went okay. It was a slower day on the Day Job. I was also feeling tired and worn out, which made the day more difficult. I still wrote on my breaks and managed to get the bulk of my word count done. I finished the rest after I was home.
In a lull in the rain I also repaired the door to our chicken coop that had been torn off in a storm a few weeks ago. That done, I spent the rest of the evening relaxing. We watched TV, my son fell asleep early.
My weekend from the Day Job starts, so there are errands and other activities to take its place. That means I still need to be focused if I’m going to get in my words for the day and manage a few other tasks. Maybe even study some. I have a new art book, The Digital Renaissance by Carlyn Beccia that I’m looking forward to reading.
