As Good as Bad Can Get: Novel Progress

I've been commissioned to write a space opera novel set in the Dark Expanse. This is a online RPG stategy tie in novel.

Some of you might remember that I've published several short stories in the Dark Expanse (read for free). Some of which appear in the Dark Expanse: Surviving the Collapse anthology, buy from Amazon UK or Amazon US.

I'd like to share the developing blurb with you:

As Good as Bad Can Get

Klyve Ganthe is a Kyoti, a race of tricksters and con artists. He's got he's good qualities, but he's a nobody. He can't even manage to bribe his way off planet. So why would the Corona Corporation leave him in charge of the planet Nimbas?  Armed with his wits, his old pal Quizl the Kanzai to advise him, and a nagging mother-in-law, Klyve must struggle to bring together the disgruntled factions to keep Nimbas from being overrun by the Logorasch swarm.

A Planet on the Edge of Chaos. Can Klyve make Nimbas As Good as Bad Can Get?

Cover Candy

Time to share some cover candy. Ah, being on the cover. It never gets old. 

Nice to be cover buddies with Mel, who is also a big fan of the British Museum. (Yay! British Museum.)

Mel talks about persistance and spending time with your writing every day in this post. I don't do this. I more or less, write every week day. But I give myself permission to take the weekends off, if I want. But most weekends I do write. Because I love it.

Question for my writer friends: do you write every day?
