Ghost Signal from Colorado Springs

Was Tesla getting messages from Aliens?

I just have to gush over my own books. Yes, I really do as this one was so much fun to create. I take two parallel stories and meld them together on a crash course.

When you read the paragraphs, you will feel like you are the characters. Isn’t that the hallmark a good book?

When I was much younger sitting in the theater, I can remember the anxiety I had as the electric blanket was placed on the ice covering the monster entombed within. Had I not been in the theater I would have screamed at them to not put an electric blanket on ice!

When War of the Worlds was released, and we watched it again on the big screen how scary was that? As the Martian craft systematically exterminated people, I remember my anxiety as the two love interests are flying just above the tree line to escape the Martians. The subsequent crash and then the lady scared out of her wits is trying to take care of the newest man in her life.

When you read a book, it should be better than that.

Reading the words as the writer wrote them you become that character. You are inside their head and feel what they are feeling. When they are thousands of feet under the water in the submersible that is not tested to that depth you can hear the thing creaking as the pressure builds on the tiny craft.

You know that in an instance you could be crushed like a bug on the windshield and it causes you some minor anxiety.

Yeah for the writer and yeah for you!

In one of my other novels “Cyber Subs,” you become the girlfriend who is watching her best friend get on webcam slowly removing her clothes teasing the folks paying her to strip. You are just a few feet away, observing the action as something about it excites you. That feeling inside you that you are all too familiar with is there in an instant as you get up and cross over across the room and join her in front of the webcam. Wearing just a diaphanous gown suddenly it is you in front of hundreds of strangers expecting you to remove your clothing.

What do you do? Are you scared? Are you anxious? Are you turned on? Are you “misty?”

When I write it is the strangest thing, it is me in each and every character. I channel them as it were. Their dialect, their build and so on for the moment I am them. I desire to put enough of them into those words that you too can be them.

This last novel, Kitties Titties, and Winks is about as erotic as it gets with me. I don’t do sleaze as that is not who I am. I read EL James’s novels, and I knew that I could do better. The e-mails thus far are not from my regular readers, but they mostly say the same things so, let’s hope that the trend continues.

With Thirty novels out there written by yours truly, you should find something that interests you. Do not forget that Nudist of Shangri-La was inspired by you my readers, so I do listen to you. Do you have an idea of something you would read?

Let’s have it.

I am taking a little bit of time away from writing to market my current novels and build my brand. It is during this time that I am open to suggestions.

Email me at WWW.Authortwscott.com Check out the website and click on the contact page.

I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for taking time out of your day to allow me to be some small part of it.

I like to give back to you my readers and followers, and I desire to do so through this blog and by placing my novels out there inexpensively enough that anyone should not have trouble getting them.

If you take the time to let me know what you think of them, I do appreciate that. I get all sorts of e-mails with page numbers and such that I should look at this miss spelling or that one. Don’t get me wrong on this I do appreciate them. I make notes and then go back and fix them as time permits.

As always much Love…TW

Have a super great weekend!

1947 Roswell NM

A different take on the events through the lens of a creative author.

  • If Roswell in 1947 was a real event what would it look like today?
  • If you discovered an alien spacecraft that reacted to your commands what would you do?

Elliot grew up in New Mexico raised by his aunt and her husband.  His parents mysteriously disappeared on their ranch around an outcropping in an obscure area of their ranch. First, his father went missing.  Much later his mother also went missing in the same area.

Moving to California after college Elliot secures a job with a large tech firm Ohmicron.  Developing his own inventions while being the fair-haired boy, Elliot has a moral compass that is not in line with the company.

Providing him an assistant who was primarily to spy on him goes awry when his assistant falls in love with him.  Elliot a bit of a risk taker learned to rock climb back in New Mexico.  When his friend Greg was too busy to accompany him, Susan his assistant decides she must learn enough about it so she can get Elliot to notice her.

Secretly taking classes with her friends, she learns just enough to invite herself along.

Romance blossoms when Elliot shows Susan his love of rock climbing.  Some of those were even too much for her as she slips and lands on her bottom near a dry creek bed.

Allowing her time to pull herself together Elliot coils the ropes and gets the gear ready to make another ascent when everything changes.  Watching a lizard escape the heat scurrying under a crevasse in the rocks, Elliot assumes that there must be a small place or opening.

Dislodging some small pebbles in that same direction of the lizard’s den, while wrapping up the rest of the gear, Elliot hears a mysterious metallic clunk from far below them.  Susan also heard it as she was now no longer thinking of her fall.

What they were both unaware of is how that “clunk” would change their entire lives.  They also had no idea of how that discovery would affect the lives of every human on earth and some races who were in another galaxy.

Under Roswell was inspired by the early termination of Stargate Universe.  Never trying my hand at writing I was always one to be entertained, never the entertainer. When the writers were struggling toward the end of the show with the droid robots from hell, the writing was on the wall.

I was not surprised when the show unceremoniously ended.

Not ready to let them be stranded between galaxies with an uncertain fate on a lark I tried my hand at fan fiction.

Two hours into the project I came to the conclusion that I could tell a story.

Scrapping the project, I started Under Roswell.

Four years later I wrote the end which is probably the only book that I have ever written with the words “The End.”

Thirty published novels later I am still writing as time permits.

The saga of the Starduster is my number one best seller.

Trying my hand at many different genres, from Science Fiction to romances of various kinds, it has been a fun ride. Yes, I have even written a few slightly tawdry novels including some same-sex love.

Some of the e-mails ask why I tried the LGBT stuff.  “Why not?”

Other than some minor plumbing differences, we are all the same. It is my goal to unite us as a people instead of following in the footsteps of the media and others that would seek to destroy us through bigotry and yes ignorance.

In some of my novels, I address things like labels and using sexuality as a weapon and yes being a bully.

Under Roswell is a science fiction that is actually YA.  Taking some of my characters through Russia while taking others into other galaxies is just part of the fun.  You too can ride along as our heroes save the earth from inevitable destruction.

Thanks for following me and reading along as I take you on a journey with me through the trials and tribulations of being an author.

Lost In Space II

Would you trust Dr. Smith?

Ok, I did it, I binged watched the season with my company. This is the most TV I have watched in twelve months. The cats in my lap made it bearable.
I still love the characters. I like how they are being developed.
The writing is still too predictable…There were no surprises for me as I knew what I would do as a writer.

  • Have you watched it?
  • Were there any surprises for you?

Breaking the laws of physics with the alien thing is a great way to invent your “flux capacitor.”
I actually try to stay within the confines of physics so the plot will be more interesting to those who are nerdy enough to understand that sort of thing.
Until season II is released I guess we can sit back and pontificate on where they will go with this story.

  • I give high marks to the special effects crew.
  • Again I love the characters.

If you have Netflix go and watch it and tell me what you think.

Response to an E-mail

Should we move the second hand on the doomsday clock?

“Wow TW, you don’t think much of humans do you?”

Yep, that was from an e-mail.  This person took objection to me comparing humans to cockroaches.

“At least we know some people read my blog and think to send me a note…” 🙂

Let’s try and put this into context for them, shall we?

If you are comparing apples to apples some are tastier, better looking and even more resilient when it comes to resisting bugs than others.  Comparing apples to oranges gets a little bit trickier.

When you compare humans to each other some are definitely more stable, intelligent and wiser than others.  That does not make them any better necessarily it just makes them different.

The average IQ of the average human is around 100.  Anything above 100 is, of course, your thinkers, your higher level strategizers and so forth. Stephen Hawking, rest his soul, was right up there with Einstein which I would guess to be close to 160.

Anything over 160 borders on insanity…fyi…

I personally do not put much stock into the whole IQ thing as it is a way of assigning a number or value to people, putting them into a hole if you will.

In Saga of the Starduster, I talk about humans coming into contact with a race of very intelligent people with high IQ’s.  How does that work out for them?

So, compare humans to a race of folks who can build an interstellar craft, alter time, and shift in and out of this reality at will.

Now compare the thinkers and philosophers to people who spend their countries fortunes on building a bigger and more powerful weapon that is capable of blowing up the planet.  They starve the very people that they need to work the farms and provide the resources for their pitiful excuse of a government to function.  Short-sighted does not even come close to accurately describing them.

Then you have the class of folks who want everything for free until it is their turn to pay for “everything” for others of that ilk, and then they wake up.

I think comparing some individuals to cockroaches might actually do a disservice to the cockroach.   Do you realize that if one of these “leaders” actually touches off a nuke and kills us all, the cockroach might very well be the lone survivor?  It has evolved into a pretty good machine.  Putin was just quoted as telling the UK not to threaten a Nuclear Power.  Are we moving the Doomsday clock closer to midnight?  Even he knows that those are toys you will never get to play with.  If that Geni gets loose again there are too many others with those kinds of toys who would not want to play too.

“The meek shall inherit the earth…Are cockroaches meek?”

Stephen Hawking was a personal hero of mine.  I wish I had met him. Not only was he very smart, thought outside the box and did not let others browbeat him but, he was a survivor. Last night when the news broke that he had passed, some person was quick to report that he used to run over the toes of those that he did not like with his wheelchair.  Why they felt it necessary to besmirch the character of such a great man minutes after his death boggles my mind.  Some people are very small indeed!

Had he run over my toes, I would have been honored just to be that close to him.

As far as science, physics and Quantum physics go, Stephen was a giant!

While I may be in hot water with one of my readers, Stephen called us once an advanced breed of monkeys.  Think about that one.

I hope that clears up my comparison.  No, I don’t think humans are dullards or cockroaches.  I do know that we can be self-serving, lazy, petulant and downright idiotic. We can also be benevolent, brilliant and beautiful, which are you?

By the way, since I have finished the Nudists series for a bit, I am back to work on Gods and Insects.  Several more chapters sprang to life from my nimble fingers the other night and I like the way that it is coming along.

Look for more updates soon.

Ghost Signal from Colorado Springs

My latest release! Ink is still wet!

Number 26 is published on both Amazon and Smashwords!!!!

After three months of toiling away over a hot keyboard, I put the finishing touches on it last night about 2 am!

Folks this is amazing!  I love how this book unfolded and how it turned out! “So will you.”

I believe that there is a niche market where science fiction and romance conjoin to make a good story.

I love romance stories, and l love Science Fiction.  It seems only natural to write a story that has both elements in it.

Unlike Saga of the Starduster, this one is YA.  Yes, there is implied sex but, nothing explicit. I think a young adult can handle that.

So let me tell you a little about this novel.

In a galaxy far far away …” too much?” There is a planet that is orbiting a binary star.  This binary sun is getting closer and closer to the other sun which they fear will Nova taking out the solar system.

What they do not realize is that Nova is not what they need to fear, if the two become one it turns into a magnatar which is deadly for the entire area. Not just that one solar system.

Anyway, they send out ships to find a new place to live.

There is a catch… A race of advanced beings with the weaponry to back it up have dubbed themselves the universal police.  They have laws which forbid contact with worlds that are pre-space.  Yea, I know that trope has been used before, but it is a good one.

The first race, the Bindane find the Earth.  Landing they find cave dwellers.  These creatures look little like what we do today.  Smaller brains, much hair, no verbal communication and oh yes, they will eat one another if they are hungry.

The Bindane are in a quandary, do we stay here and work with them, or keep looking…

They had been in space for many years.  Some of the Bindane leave without permission and have at it with the locals.  Flying around in their smaller ships, they explore much of the world and conquer it.  Having sex with who they choose soon human Bindane hybrids are running around.

Humans with an IQ of 60 and Bindane with an IQ of 250, you can quickly see what is going to happen.  The hybrids all of the sudden can solve puzzles, invent tools and find more efficient ways to kill.  This is why the Xylars, (other race) forbid this kind of activity.

Intelligence without wisdom and empathy make for smart evil people. Unless love is the foundation for who or what you are, the rest is meaningless.

Without giving away the story, it is an inexpensive read! $2.99 from either Smashwords or Amazon!

This book is well worth your time and I encourage you to check it out and please give me feedback.

I was going to write about Grammarly but I think writing about my newest release is a better use of my time.  I have some new tricks with Grammarly I am going to share with you in the days to come.  Is that a tease or what?

Yes, I want you to come back and I want you to tell your friends or family or even your mother In law!

You might like your mother in law… LOL

I will love your mother in law for some feedback… 🙂

We writers cannot rest on our laurels, however.  I already have an idea for #27 and I have an idea for a screenplay.  Which should I do first?

Much love -TW

Hole In time

Just when you think you have it figured out, physics changes.

Sitting next to folks at lunch or the local Starbucks I noticed that many of you read.

Carving out a slice of time from your hectic day to take a small mental vacation, I came up with this series for you Sci-Fi buffs

Episode 1 through 9 are on Amazon Kindle Unlimited meaning you can probably read them for free.

The Pilot episode is on your standard Amazon, Apple, Barns and Nobles and so on.  Since it is the pilot and pulls the story together, for marketing sake, it needed to be widely distributed.

The series took about six months or so to create, the feedback has been awesome and the readership rather robust.   If you are one of them, Thanks so much!

Ben and his crew of the Brooking haul cargo from one stop to another while traversing the galaxy. After picking up some rare mineral on Treglia, a planet in the outer reaches of the universe, things take unpredictable twist and turns.

We meet earth’s early ancestors as well as ancient Martians as we float through each episode.

Ben finds himself the last human male alive on a ship full of women.  Does the race die off or does Ben and his crew think outside the box?

These are all lunchtime reads so let me know what you think!

The artwork was created on an IPad Pro, with different art software currently available on Itunes.
The story is a product of an overactive imagination always asking “what if” and Red Bull!

While there, check out my other novels.  Currently, I am working on a novel with Dragons, Witches, Shamans, Pirates, and Sirens  …
