Thy Kingdom Fall and Prophecy

April 4, 2013 is when I became a published author. I hadn’t written a word of fiction in over 15 years and then I released Thy Kingdom Fall, Book 1 of my epic, international, science fiction After Eden series (subtitled: The Genesis of World War III). Four months later, I released Stars and Scorpions, Book 2 of the series. These …

World building Part II: The (Sexy) Cyberpunk Way of Liquid Cool

Austin Dragon Cyberpunk, Science Fiction, Series Overview, Writing Leave a Comment

Atmosphere In my futuristic After Eden series, there are no hover-craft. Terrorism concerns prevent any future of flying cars in cities—except for quasi ones that simply hover above the street. However, in Liquid Cool, it’s quite the opposite. Hover-cars, hover-trucks, hover-bikes, jet-packed police—the sky is filled with something or someone flying around. Both are futuristic realities and believable, but completely …

A couple of weeks ago, I attended a WGF (Writers Guild Foundation) event here in Los Angeles. It was a live sit-down interview with writer-producer Frank Spotnitz. He produced/executive produced eight of the nine seasons of THE X-FILES, including writing more than 40 episodes and oversaw the writer’s room.  He worked on multiple series, but of particular interest to me …

The World of Liquid Cool

My “Blade Runner-ish” cyberpunk detective thriller series is here and I couldn’t be happier. Laser guns, jet-packs, hovercraft, cyborgs, and that’s just the first novel. To come will be robots and androids, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and lunar colonies. I feel like a little kid waiting for presents on Christmas Eve. Well, in this case, as the author, I’m Santa …

I think most people know the iconic story of the Diary of Anne Frank. Anne and her family hid in an attic for two years during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands, and were eventually captured. Well, let’s say instead of 1942, we have a fictionalized version of the story set in the year 2432, with hovercraft, robots, bio-engineered birds …

This is actually my first post of the new year. My controversial “Top 10 Reasons Why Star Wars Sucks” was posted on the 1st, but was actually my last post of 2015. So what’s the plan for 2016? On the home page of my website, I did lay out most of it. Do everything bigger and better! Lots of people …

Liquid Cool: The Characters (The Villains)

Austin Dragon Cyberpunk, Liquid Cool, Science Fiction, Series Overview, Sneak Peek Leave a Comment

Superman has Lex Luther. Professor X has Magneto. Bat Man has the Joker. Sherlock Holmes has Moriarity. Every good protagonist needs a good antagonist. Well, in Metropolis there isn’t one, but a seemingly endless stream of them. In my cyberpunk, corporations are not the bad guy. That was considered “edgy” prognosticating back in the 1980s–we know better now. In my …

The core of any ongoing story is its protagonists–the person or persons that we follow through its world, and that we get emotionally invested in. It is also through the protagonist’s eyes that we experience the story. In Liquid Cool, the reader will be introduced to a wide array of unique characters, some good, some bad, and some we really …
