Come geek out with us as we dress in steampunk, learn about fossils, and hear excerpts from the book from the audiobook narrator himself! I had lots of fun!

The On Borrowed Wings audiobook has been greenlit!
Some fans have been requesting this one, so I'm very happy to say that everything is official, and audiobook narrator extraordinaire Benjamin Fife should be starting production sometime next month!
I'm sure he'll do an awesome job, I'm excited to listen to it, and I'm excited to share it with the rest of you! Stay tuned for further updates!

The MMS (Mixam Mechanics Special)-48 Edinrog is a specialized heavy artillery and defensive PT commonly used in the Challinorean Space Navy in some sectors. Edinrogs sacrifice speed and maneuverability in return for raw power and sheer tank-ish-ness. Common armament for Edinrogs is a pair of hip-mounted railguns, as shown here.
I was doodling for my niece earlier, and she had me draw pictures of my cats. I thought these turned out so cute that I couldn't bear to delete them.
She specifically asked for sad Chewie, angry Mallow, and regular Mallow. We determined that Chewie is sad because he lost his favorite toy, a bedraggled pink rattle-y mouse named Pinkie. I try buying him other mice toys, but Pinkie remains his bestie.
Also featuring some of my niece's own line work!

Okay, I knowwwww everything is about Thunder Girl right now, but I couldn't help doing some concept sketching for my next novel!
This is an LM (Light Model)-103 Glynnlunni, a PT built for speed and agility in melee combat. The inertial stabilizing fins on its head allow its pilot to perform all sorts of acrobatic feats in space, the environment that the Glynnlunni was developed to perform best in.
Props if you know where I got the name. 😉
In Blue Diver, space pirate Kee Kitwhit pilots a Glynnlunni armed with two wakizashi (Japanese shortswords). She's decorated her unit with some sporty detailing, not shown here, but I may do an edit of this image to include her customizations.
Kee is a Gizmim, a species of cute but hyperactive vaguely vulpine aliens. She's a friendly person, but her off-the-wall personality tends to grate on the nerves of more serious sentients, and Gizmim generally have difficulty fitting in to the dignified demeanor of the Challinorean Empire. Kee turned to piracy because Captain Jahaira Vorrh specializes in taking in misfits and refugees and giving them a home and a purpose on her pirate ship. It might take a newcomer to the galaxy to convince the captain that you don't have to use crime to help outcasts find a place they belong.

Located in historic Hays, Kansas, the Sternberg has a world-class collection of beautiful and amazing fossils found in the area. It's also right along the route that Cat and her friends travel to get to Tavakiev (Pike's Peak), which means that many of the species featured in the story can be found in the Sternberg!
Huge thanks to the Sternberg Museum and its representatives for teaming up with us! They've made me a very happy geek indeed.
