Focusing on Happiness—Week Thirty-Seven

What’s making me happy this week: starting the next Scifi novella! 😀

Meet Craig. He’s a Lyrian from Kepler-442b. You may know him better as “Bigfoot” (but I don’t recommend saying that to his face—he has four arms, an extra set of retractable teeth, and a temper 😉 ).


I had a lot of fun creating this image of him 😀 Gorillas are the closest approximation to what Lyrians look like in my imagination. I especially love how his expression seems to say, “Really, Earthling? It took you this long to write my story?”

I’ve been hearing Earthlings who know about this story and are fans of The Department of Homeworld Security say the same thing for at least a year now (one of the perks of going to my book signings when I have them is that I talk about upcoming stories!). And technically, this is Henry and Vay‘s story, but…I’m not telling Craig that.

Craig is actually a super-sweetie. If he likes you. *ahem*

This is book five of the series and I’m already on chapter two. I can’t wait to share more about it in the coming weeks. And you won’t have to wait long to read it, because this one is scheduled to come out in July! 😀

It’s a lot of work, but I’m having a blast with releasing a Homeworld novella every month through September. This month, you’ll get the first new release, and I’m so excited to share it with you!

Stay tuned and thanks for reading <3
