Next Book Update

Headline is back from a fellow author's criticism.  I have to make some minor changes and then off to the editor it goes.  This will be a ~50K word novella, but due to the amount of twists and turns, it certainly feels longer.  I'm expecting a late April or early May release via Smashwords and Amazon.  The price will be my usual 99c.

I'm currently working on a 10k short story and an idea for a new sci-fi book is percolating through my brain.  I won't give any details yet.  Stay tuned!

Project Communique - Vilify Stratify

A nice new tune here, multi-tracked Akai MINIAK once again. I keep thinking I'm running out of ideas with this synth, but it still surprises me, even using (modified) presets.

Two new Project Communique songs

"Fleeing Saturn" - a sort of Tangerine Dream inspired bit

"Empty Room" - a little more dark wave-ish

both were made with the MINIAK, and Empty Room also had the Alesis HR-16 providing drums.

Next Book - a sneak peek of the cover

I'm drawing close to finishing this mystery-thriller novella.  It's a great read with tons of twists and turns, plus a great surprise ending.  It should be released some time in April or May.

The beginning of a new Project Communique song

When I'm not writing, I like to mess around with synths and recording gear.  Here is a song that I'm currently working on - I just need to wrap up writing the lyrics and adding in the vocal track.

Created using an Akai MINIAK and an Alesis HR-16 drum machine,  Recorded through a Focusrite Saffire 6 USB and Abelton Live 8.  Some processing was done - reverb and compression - via the recording software plugins.  Music track on the video is only 128kpbs.  Picture is the front-end of a Yaqin MC-10T amplifier.
