The first draft of Blue Diver is complete, and I'm having my editor look at it right now! I'm hoping to get it out on Kindle very soon, hopefully in the next month or so.

Until then, enjoy this mockup of a logo for a very hypothetical Blue Diver anime series!


This ties in to some of the origin of Blue Diver--a long time ago, I had a dream that I was watching a (nonexistent) anime series called Blue Diner, a slice-of-life sci-fi about humans and aliens living on a deep-space station and frequenting the station's diner. Also, giant robots were involved for some reason, because why not? It was such a vivid dream that it stuck with me for years afterward.

When I was trying to take some separate plot ideas and flesh them out into a novel-length plotline, my mind kept coming back to Blue Diner and I realized that, with some alterations, a lot of the stuff from that dream would work really well with what I was trying to do. The Lykoi and Cys were other elements from the dream that I was able to incorporate into the novel.

As for the title, Blue Diner didn't make any sense considering the plotline of the novel. But I realized that if I called the robot pilots "Divers", and made the main character's robot blue, I could call the novel Blue Diver!

I'm really looking forward to sharing this one with everybody!
