UPDATE AND INTERVIEW

Taking a break from Adrift, first in the upcoming Colony series to provide an update.

Colony.  Adrift is well on its way to having a first draft completed within the coming weeks.  I’m hoping to release this Sequence mid to late spring 2021.

Metatron’s Army.  An interesting thing happened on my way to the next book in this seriesRefugee

Metatron’s Legacy, Karma, and Refugee all take place after the original series ends.

Over the holiday break I decided to set aside Lessons From the Edge: An Author’s Guide to Metatron’s Army. 

Though I kept a copy in case I wanted to revisit the idea later.

It’s Later.  I spent the rest of the break doing an immense amount of work on the back end of my career and while I was proud of what I accomplished, I was also exhausted.

I was beyond anxious to get back to the easy part – writing the stories.

I was subsequently contacted by Lamont Gates of Real Spiritual Talk Radio.  

He found me through an internet search on Metatron in association with a rather unique filter, Near Death Experience which led him to my site, metatronsarmy.com.

Intrigued by my story he asked if I would do an interview and talk about the NDE and how it led to the development of this sci-fi series.  As this aspect of the Metatron’s Army journey was described in detail in Lessons From the Edge, I considered the timing quite the coincidence.

As a synchronicity junkie, I don’t believe in coincidences.

They’re forks in the road.  More often than not they are points where we are being offered a choice.

In lieu of this, I’ve decided to finish Lessons From the Edge and release it.

It will provide insight into the story of Metatron’s Army and add depth to what is discussed in the interview.

I anticipate this book to be released shortly after Adrift.

Stay tuned.

The interview can be heard here.

This article will be cross posted on metatronsarmy.com.

building out the dream

While working on Advantage, first in the Metatron’s Army series I stumbled on the magick of having a playlist for the books I was working on.  Auspiciously, I simultaneously stumbled on music that fit the series in its entirety – for me.

Nigel Stanford’s Solar Echoes.

Though I continued to create playlists for books in the ensuing years it wasn’t until I was inspired to introduce a new series that I circled back around to creating a playlist for it.

New is a misnomer.  The idea for this series was born alongside Metatron’s Army back in 1984.  Not having bandwidth to do much with it I focused on MA and set it aside.

I suppose setting it aside is a misnomer too because I never fully let go of the idea.

I guess I’m peeling the onion here because beneath the idea was the image – a character.

And beneath that?  The look in his eyes.  

So much emotion – so much said – but in that moment I just didn’t have the cycles.  

I never forgot his expression, nor his body language as he stood in a doorway staring at me as if daring me to – what?

It took decades to comprehend what it was he was communicating and in that time I wrote multiple opening scenes for the story only to curl my lip and set them aside indefinitely.

I wrote an opening scene for Metatron’s Army the summer before my junior year in high school but tossed it twenty years later while sorting through a box of writing that had crisscrossed the country with me for decades; writing that included my very first novel – handwritten in a spiral bound notebook in 8th grade – along with short stories, poetry and other novels typed on bond paper.  Needless to say, it was a large heavy box.

I tossed almost the entirety of that box seven years later – five years before sitting down to start Advantage.

From there to Here.  As I write this post I am populating a series playlist with music that, like the Metatron’s Army series playlist, is mostly instrumental.

Lots of stuff by Twelve Titans Music.

I spent the day working on the various tasks that go into a project of this magnitude, managing to tackle most of the big stuff.

Including the playlist.

I will be posting updates in the near future.

Stay tuned.
