Wednesday, June 4, Sammy, a year-old fugitive, accidentally discovers he has the powers of a Psion. Plucked off the streets, he is thrust into the rigorously-disciplined environment of Psion Beta headquarters. As a new Beta, Sammy must hone his newfound abilities using holographic fighting simulations, stealth training missions, and complex war games. His fellow trainees are other kids competing to prove their worth so they can graduate and contribute to the war effort.
But the stifling competition at headquarters isolates Sammy from his peers. Learning to use his incredible powers is difficult enough, but when things go horribly wrong on a routine training mission, he must rely on the other Betas to stay alive. The Silent War is at a tipping point; even one boy can be the difference. I don't know whether I'll self-publish it or shop it around first. I think I'm contractually obligated to at least show it to Shadow Mt. However, I really enjoy self-publishing and may very well ultimately pursue that route.
We shall see. Lots of time to decide which direction to go.
A little bit about Super Six: 1. It's a mashup between Avatar: The Last Airbender and Main character is Jack, who suffers from panic disorders and haphephobia. It is an alternative history story. International cast similar to Psion Beta. More details to come in the future. Meanwhile, Psion Omega is being read by my Beta readers. So far the feedback is very positive. Now what? Psion Omega is really coming along. I finished the second draft today. And now that I can breathe a little easier knowing that the book doesn't totally suck, I am thinking, "What next?
Obviously, I still have ATOLAS, but sales aren't going too well for that series, so I am not rushing into work on a project that may not have a future.

The second book is turned into Shadow Mt and I've written a good chunk of the 3rd. The whole book is mapped out, but unwritten. I have so many ideas in my head, some are even partially written. All of these are working titles for books I have in mind. I just need to figure out which one I'm most passionate about and see what happens. One thing I may consider is Hunt because it's a standalone story.
I may even post a sample chapter for you to read and you can tell me if it's something you're interested in reading more of. However, I'm also interested in finding an agent. I haven't had any luck on that front, so part of me wants to write something I can shop around and get serious looks at. I'll need to take that into consideration as well. When you read Psion Omega, you may see subtle signs that are setting it up for the next series in the Psion Universe: the Clone Saga. No, not all your favorite characters will survive, but you'll at least be able to sleep a little easier not wondering how Sammy is going to get out of that underground bunker in Rio or some such mess.
And if I do push forward the Psion Universe like I plan, it will be in such a way that readers may feel enriched by the first series, but will certainly not need it to understand what is going on. I hope you readers will enjoy the final book. I know some people hate seeing characters they love die, but, well, it's a war story. Bodies have dropped in every book. Enough Already! When is Psion Omega coming? I know. I know many of you expected Psion Omega over a month ago.
And all I can say about why you don't have it is because I refuse to publish a book until its quality is good enough for the money I charge for it. Also, I hadn't written the first draft until just a few months ago.
I'm over halfway through, and expect to finish it in February. Then I will run through it again to make sure everything makes sense. And then it will go to my beta readers.

And yes, I already have beta readers. They will get a month to read it April? I hope to release it. So there you go. Long live Sammy! First of all, to all my readers, happy holidays. I apologize for the lack of updates recently, but I've been busy with work and moving into a new house, which includes painting, hauling, shopping, cleaning, and sorting.
I've had some people recently ask me for some advice on self-publishing, so I'm going to give whoever wants it some advice if they decide to go this route. I am still very happy that I self-published, and would do it again in a heartbeat. I've done well, better than most probably, but I think anyone can do well in this regard if the writing and presentation is good. So, without further delay, here's my advice: 1. Put out a polished, great product. When I first published Psion Beta, I was shocked that it had so many errors, and I vowed to never let that happen again.
So I paid people to edit the book after that. Since then, I think I've cut down dramatically on internal grammar and punctuation errors. I highly recommend paying for this service if you can afford it. Have a plan to put out books regularly. I have tried to self-publish a book a year. Psion Omega is the exception, mostly because of the Tale series that popped up unexpectedly. However, the book will be out next year, finishing the series. If you can't put out at least a book a year, you may find yourself losing your audience.
Consider pre-writing the entire series, and then releasing them every months. Rely on word of mouth to advertise. People talk about books they read. They post about them in social media. Don't be afraid to ask your readers for reviews. Be bold, but not annoying. I have seen little success in paid advertising for self-published books. Weigh the cost vs benefits of giving your book away from time to time in order to spread the word.

Consider discounting it to attract readers. I think my covers have improved as I've self-published more Psion books. Britta Peterson and I work together on them, and I know she's improved as well. I'm proud of the covers I have, and I know that a cover can make or break whether someone buys a book.
Pay the price to get a solid cover. Don't lose hope.
