NICE!

Re: Thanks Aphelion!

Hallo!

"Book one of the Confederacy".

Care to give us a paragraph on your overall premise? My quick guess is an alternate history timeline that the southern Confederacy won the original civil war?

Plus ... "*ten* years ago" ... because Aphelion is just that dedicated ... that it kept inspiring you! (And others!)

And any purchase advice?

Re: Thanks Aphelion!

hello all....and yes Tao too...

Your thoughts are not on target this time...I used the word "Confederacy" just to indicate it was a combined group of planets...in a loose coalition is all...but it works for me...

I'm a planner when it comes to novels it appears so my 12 novel series is taking shape in Scrivener as planned...

The book is yes an eBook/Kindle right now (printed one comes out today for purchase I'm told) and can be found here - along with quite a few 5 star reviews and yes a couple that take me to task for my 'run on sentences' and poor grammar...sigh...

Sure thing, groups of planets is fine!

And ... 12 book series!? Planner indeed! I just hope life doesn't catch up to you before you finish the series!
