AN EXPANDED MESSAGE FOR MEMORIAL DAY
Memorial%2bday


Like most of our national holidays here in the U.S., Memorial Day has been largely given over to retail sales hoopla, outdoor concerts, family picnics and the like. It can be difficult to remember the original meaning of the day, which is to commemorate the sacrifice of the men and women of our military who have given their lives in defense of their country.
The holiday began with “Decoration Day” after the Civil War, a way to honor Union soldiers who ha...

In light of the terrible tragedy in Manchester UK, Spacefreighters Lounge has gone dark for a few days. Our thoughts and healing wishes go out to all those impacted by this terrible tragedy. May we all begin to light those small candles in the darkness once again.

Star wars the last jedi


Star Wars VIII (The Last Jedi) is due in cinemas in December 2017. And yes, I'll see it (after the DVDs come out, I expect) but yeah… I have a bad feeling about this.

I'm still on writing hiatus, but something one of my cobloggers said about not knowing the story behind the story on a recent post inspired this blog.

Some of the greatest stories may have never been told if it were not for a writer who was first inspired by the tale and determined to bring it to the world's attention.

Here are just three of these remarkable authors and their stories behind the books.

I've reached a time of life when people have started to die. I remember seeing Facebook posts last December to the tune of, "Will this year please end before we lose someone else?" We lost so many iconic figures. (It was also the year I lost my mom, though this post isn't about that.)Personally, I was gutted by the loss of actor Alan Rickman and, of course, our beloved Leia, always and forever my princess before princesses became cupcake girls (my label, because their dresses look lik... spacefreighters.blogspot.co...

Well, well. While looking through some old Word documents I found this piece I wrote a good few years ago. It's about how I came to publish my very first SFR books, The Iron Admiral: Conspiracy and The Iron Admiral: Deception. I enjoyed the trip down memory lane: you may, too.
