As some of you know by now viewing my Facebook and Twitter posts, I recently joined Al Gore's Climate Reality Project as a Climate Reality Leader. I took the training in July with around 10,000 others from all over the world. We had to attend nine days of online virtual training sessions and commit to performing 10 Acts Of Leadership over the next few months to remain in good standing. I must say, this training on our Climate Crisis was an eye opener, very informative and in spite of all the harm we have done to our planet there is hope and proof we can all stop and reverse the damage we have done. It will take the complete elimination of all fossil fuel industries by 2050 and the use of 100% Clean Energy from Wind, Solar and other sources of electric power which we are well on our way to achieving. I hope everyone does what they can to help save our planet.
So, you might wonder what does this all have to do with my science fiction writing? The best answer I can give is the Climate Crisis we are experiencing is the background theme I used throughout my UTOPIAS Dystopian Series. I started writing the series several years ago and recently published Book 0, Climate Crisis as a prequel story for the series. By this time the Climate Crisis has produced catastrophic weather related events and the rise of CO2 levels above 415 ppm. We need to reduce this level back down to 350 ppm to maintain our environment at human existence levels. If we fail to do this, the world's Sixth Major Extinction Level Event will become inevitable.
Here is my latest UTOPIAS book trailer on YouTube used to promote my series. I hope you enjoy the stories and post some reviews if you like them.

I released my latest book, UTOPIAS - Book 0, Climate Crisis! It's available on Preorder for $0.99. Official release date is May 27, 2020. Available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble (Nook) and Smashwords. I plan to release Paperback formats in June, then an ebook boxset in July. I updated all three books in this UTOPIAS Dystopian Series.
A brief book description follows:
By 2098 the human race is faced with a Sixth Mass Extinction Level Event from extreme climate change conditions caused by humans. The planet is dying. Humans will not be able to breathe the air within five years. They are presented with two choices; enter cryosleep for at least 100 years or die slowly from lack of oxygen, deadly carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases and rising temperatures.
Promotion events to follow including a New Book Trailer I created using PowerPoint and Windows Live Movie Maker. Its available to watch on YouTube at this link:
Keep safe and keep reading Science Fiction!
March Madness! Not what we were all expecting-is it?
I started the month with a two week vacation in Florida visiting friends. I left two weeks later at the start of the Pandemic in the US.
To say the least, we were not prepared for the fast spread of the virus in all 50 states. The Federal government response was too slow and ineffective. We are still lacking PPE for our frontline doctors and nurses and others. Testing has been a joke. We can not predict how fast the spread can be stopped or slowed down to the lack of everything we need. At least the public is now mostly staying at home to slow down the virus. I hope we all learn from this pandemic and prepare for the next one like we should have prepared for this one.
As for my writing I am still editing and proofreading my next book and the two other books in the series. I plan to complete this project by the end of April. My cover designer is helping to fight the pandemic in Madrid. I hope to see my new covers soon. I never thought I would experience an apocalyptic event as bad as this outside of reading a Sci-Fi novel or watching a movie.
Please, everyone, do what you can to slow down this virus and help our doctors, nurses, delivery people and anyone else who is trying to stop this pandemic as soon as they can. Stay safe and stay at home if you can.
It was a busy year in 2019. I'm looking forward to more success in 2020.
I spent a great deal of time editing and proofreading my books. I decided it was time to release Paperback versions of my books, which required another round of edits for each book.
I released PB copies for The Guardians Series and Nanomachine War Series. Each series is a three book Trilogy, which are Space Opera Military Science Fiction stories. I believe they are very entertaining and have received 5 Star Ratings on Amazon.
In addition, I did the same for my very first novel, Alien Storm. This is a 400+ page novel about First Alien Contact that leads to a surprising conclusion. I hope you enjoy it. I giveaway free ebook copies on BookFunnel promos if you are interested.
I plan to release all my books in PB formats by the end of 2020. I do all the editing and proofreading myself to save money. I believe I find 99% of any errors by the time I release a book in PB. I use Amazon KDP for all my PB books. They look great.
I am currently working to complete my third book in the UTOPIAS Series. I decided to write a prequel I am calling Book 0, The Dark Years. It will cover the period from 2098 to 2099 when humans finally entered Cryostasis Sleep Chambers in underground bunkers due to the Climate Crisis. I am having a good time writing the novel since in pulls characters and events from Books 1 and 2. Of course, I am adding a lot of new information how everything began and the reasons behind it. I hope to release before summer 2020.
I tried a lot of new promotions, both free and paid, to promote my books in 2019. I am a bit disappointed it did not result in that many more sales in units or dollars. I believe this is due to the tremendous amount of Free and 99 Cent Only book sales in the marketplace today. I am also disappointed in the low response rate for Book Reviews for my books. Apparently, more work needs to be done to increase sales and reviews in 2020.
One new thing I will try in 2020 is to attend Book Fairs now that I have PB books available for sale. I already purchased what I need to attend my first fair. I just need to find some local library book events near me this year. If you hear of any, let me know.
Thanks to all readers of my Newsletters and participants in my BookFunnel Sales Promos in 2019. I hope to hear from you in 202o! Keep reading Sci-Fi if you are a fan.
December sales Have Begun!
I reduced several of my books to the lowest prices ever. Check them out on my website or go to one of my online stores at Amazon, Nook or Smashwords for purchase.
I started my next book in the UTOPIAS Series. It will be a prequel story set in the year 2098 before humans had to go into cryostasis to survive the catastrophes caused by climate change. I hope to show what happens when world leaders refuse to do what is necessary to save our planet from too high CO2 levels. I hope to make this book as entertaining and educational as Books 1 and 2. It will be released in 2020.
For those of you who have read my books, please take the time to post a Review on Amazon or other site to encourage other readers to purchase my books. I have updated most of my work and released paperback versions in 2019. I will complete my updates for the remaining titles in 2020 with the release of my next book.

I am editing and proofreading all Nanomachine War Series books to prepare for the release of paperback versions by the end of July. Books 1 and 2 have been completed and released as version R4. Book 3 is in progress. I am confident I fixed 99%+ all previous errors. Its the best I can do without paying for expensive editors.
I just reduced prices on The Guardians - Books 1-3 paperbacks from $14.99 to $12.99 each! These prices include free Ebook version with each purchase. Time to get them for beach reading.
I still need more positive Reviews for my books to reach more readers influenced by Amazon ratings. I appreciate those readers who already posted reviews for my books. It really helps Indie Authors a lot.
I write science fiction stories. I hope you like them.
