SHADES Backstory

Oddly enough, there really is not much of a backstory to this book. It sort of came out of nowhere. I'd been considering a post-apocalyptic novel - one which incorporates certain real-world realities. Climate Change was one of the ideas I'd incorporate into it, but it's pretty universally accepted t...

Re: Guardians of Destiny: Backstory

For now, this trilogy is on hold. While it got me back into the writing game again after a too-long hiatus, it's probably not something very publishable. It doesn't have quite enough conflict or action. When I get bored, I may finish it, then dress it up a lot more. But for now, I'm rather burned ou...

Re: Being P. H. Campbell

For the record, the Guardians of Destiny, currently a trilogy with 2 3/4 of the books written, have been taken off the "likely to publish soon" list for a variety of reasons. The chief reason begin, it really wasn't that interesting. It had moments, but it didn't 'grab'. In flavor and style, it sort...

Seren: The Secret of Magic Book Description

Serendipity Tarsus had a big problem. She desperately needed to find a decent life. She was a very odd-looking, very tall, nine year old orphan living underground in a society that endured a never-ending battle between two races. Consisting entirely of outcast half-breeds of the two pure bred races ...

Seren: The Secret of Magic Backstory

This book has almost no backstory at all. It wasn't even on my radar. I had a dream about a steampunk airplane with a Victorian era luxury suite in back that was shaped like a bird and flew with a combination of magic and tech. It got me thinking about a book based on that kind of world. A few days ...

Guardians of Destiny: Backstory

After having gone through (and to some extent, are still going through) health issues and the closure of my business because of them, I took a long hiatus from writing. The spark was out for the time being. But as the health issues got better, it began to glow again, at least a bit. But my interest ...

Re: Being P. H. Campbell

Howdy everyone! It seems there's a name for the issues that stood in the way of my writing. Post Concussion Syndrome. Basically, it's kind of a nasty sort of Cling-on from a concussion that can cause a variety of symptoms for anywhere from weeks to forever. the symptoms include memory issues, like b...

Re: Being P. H. Campbell

I hope you're checking back every week, because much to everyone's surprise (even mine), I finished the conversions from e-book to paperback on all of my books since my last post. For anyone keeping track, that was a week ago. As it happened, despite the computer crash, I reinstalled the graphics pr...
