Silent Rising

Life on the run was never something Justin envisioned, but having his wavecraft has given him and his family a distinct advantage. He realizes that once the technology is fully developed that no threat on Earth can ever put them at risk as long as they are airborne. They have the ultimate escape vehicle, and soon enough they will have the ultimate fighting machine. It was never something he hoped for, but he is a realist and a visionary, and […]

Silent Trek, the Illustrated Version

My first foray into creating illustrations came from creating a trailer for Silent Wave. The process is painstaking. Photo realistic images that are believable are a challenge to produce. Creating scenes that have to be composited because only elements exist can take hours, even if you have all the elements. People are a problem since the people you might envision might be described to look similar to a given actress or actor, and you can’t just grab their image off […]

eBook Covers (part 8)

There are things in Photoshop, like spacecraft, that are a little hard to produce. I’m always curious what tools they use when making movies like Avatar or Prometheus. For the ships to really look real, I’m sure they are engineered with CAD before they even get to programs like Photoshop. In Hope Landing, the spacecraft is actually a mulifacited model with numerous blending modes applied. I must confess, it looks more real than many of the ridiculous models you see […]

Indie author and artist CS Marks and a world of Elves

C S (Christine Stuart) Marks is from Indiana and lives in the middle of a state forest in Owen where she loves to ride horses. Elfhunter, Fire-heart, and Ravenshade are classic high fantasy, fast-paced novels that share her passion for backwoods and all the creatures that live there. The trilogy evolves around a formidable villain and the quest of elves to rid the world of him, and his quest to rid the world of every elf that lives. CS Marks admits […]

Silent Landing, the wonders of an alien world

One of the fun things about science fiction is to imagine something more spectacular than Earth. While I didn’t envision Viridian quite like Pandora, it is certainly described as being more exotic and varied than we know Earth, not that there aren’t spots of paradise on our home planet. Viridian is slightly smaller, slightly faster spinning, slightly lower gravity, with mountain 4 times higher, trees 2 times taller, and of course Jurassic type monsters. It is a plethora of life, […]

Silent Wave, the beginning

Stories begin with a vision, and perhaps an agenda. Writers obviously approach their craft with some forethought as to how to reach the conclusion, thus the plot and the development of their characters. It is seldom a simple process. My stories are all character driven. My plots are vague at best when I start. I never outline. To do so would mean my characters must act in a given way. I like writing without limitations. Silent Wave began with a […]
