Book Q&A

13 days left until Terminal Alliance comes out!

I’m a little overwhelmed between prepping some promotional stuff and trying to wrap up the first draft of the sequel. So I figured I’d try something new.

Ask me any yes/no question about the new book or series. I’ll answer as honestly as I can without spoilers.

Have fun!

I know authors hate the "how did you come up with this idea" questions, but OMG, how the heck did you come up with this one?

That's not a yes/no question, but because it's you, I'll let it pass ;-)

I knew I wanted to write science fiction, and I wanted it to be humorous. I started with a zombie-space-marines thing. I'd done a short story about zombie special forces, which was fun -- zombies really have a lot going for them, aside from the whole being dead and eating people bit.

As I was working on the first draft, I realized my protagonists were just too...competent. I needed people running the ship who didn't know what they were doing. And voila!
