I’m not all fun and sense of humor. Since I survived the vortex, I need to get back to work that is more serious.

I sometimes blog about the workload of writing. At this point most of the work is self-imposed. What have I been up to? I’ve tweaked the website some.

 A lot but I’m going to focus on THE MINOAN CHRONICLES. If you remember, when I got back from RWA National’s in Washington, I said I was going to work on the planning part of writing. Now, maybe because I’ve only said a thing here and there you thought I gave up. I don’t know how to quit.

Yesterday, I finished the first attempt at the blurb for the third book, LIFE REINS in the series. Today, I finished the draft of the synopsis for the second book, DEATH REINS.  

My next step is to write the synopsis for book three and to continue wordsmithing the synopsis for book two and the blurbs.

A fellow writer and someone I’m honored to count as a friend designed a beautiful series post. When I saw the image, it captured the feel of the books. In typical Mason form, book one, NIGHT REINS, has an eclectic mélange.

Let me share the fruits of my labor with you.


Minoans are a blood drinking day walking dynasty of Crete thought to have vanished two millennia ago. They live among us protecting humans from the Nox— blood-sucking night creatures, our mutual enemy. The ancient Greeks live parallel to us but they face their greatest challenge yet, extinction.

That’s me for today. I’ll keep all of you in the loop with developments related to the series.

Mason survives the total perspective Vortex.

I’m the only woman  known to survive the Total Perspective Vortex. That’s what my critique partner tells me.

The Total Perspective Vortex is allegedly the most horrible torture device to which a sentient being can be subjected.

When you are put into the Vortex you are given just one momentary glimpse of the entire unimaginable infinity of creation, and somewhere in it a tiny little mark, a microscopic dot on a microscopic dot, which says, “You are here.”

I say bring it on!!

Zaphod Beeblebrox, is the only man to have survived the Total Perspective Vortex.

I’m in good company.

Share the Universes

I came upon an interesting BBC interview with Michio Kaku. If you don’t know of Mr. Kuku, he is an American theoretical physicist specializing in string field theory, and a futurist.

Here is the interview.

For those of you who don’t know I’m fascinated by quantum physics. I like to blend science with spirituality, seems like an odd mix but both have always been a big part of my inner word. My work reflects both the physical and metaphysical aspects, such as in the case of the Minoan Chronicles.   

I live near the Perimeter Institute. Never heard of the place?

I can’t waiting until I return to my more Sci-Fi based works. I’m going to be sitting in on many a sessions coming up with the next set of story lines.

TORN, relates to dimensions and characters able to shift between. 

RETURN TO THE THRONE, which takes place between two universes with interesting alien species.

TAINTED SHEEP, a bleak human future with an assassination attempt hanging by a thread.

Hence, many of the reasons why I don’t blog much I’ve got a lot of writing to do with only a twenty-four hours in any given day.

I’d better get back to work.
