NaNoWriMo for the Win!

From the Office of the Mediator:

Well, it’s done. The Very Rough Draft of Freed’s Man, my 2013 NaNoWriMo project, is finished. Weighing in at 75,000+ words, it was a bit of a hectic three weeks. That’s right, it took three weeks. 25,000 words a week. I knew I wasn’t going to have much time during Thanksgiving week, so I pushed myself. I may have sprained my brain.

Whoever thought making the month of November NaNoWriMo is a cruel, cruel, person.

But, enough complaining! It’s done! I accomplished what I set out to do, and if I do say so myself, it’s a pretty good story.

It will probably take at least a year before it’s actually published, but if anyone out there is curious, if you would like to read the V. R. D., there is a way. But it will cost you…

Actually, it won’t cost you anything but a little effort. You’ll need to be on facebook, for starters. Then you’ll need to go to my Author Page and look for instructions how to become an Agent of the Office of the Mediator. Then you’ll need to follow those instructions. There are other benefits to being an Agent of the OM, but you’ll have to go there to find out what they are. Why spoil the surprise?

For the OM, Sol III Div.

Office of the Mediator, Sol III Div. Seeks Agents!

Greetings, Terrans!

The Office of the Mediator, Sol III Div. is looking for a few good sentient beings. The Mediator has requested that we enlist Communications Agents to assist with the flow of information about the Umea Bakearen series. To that end, we are offering a free eBook of A Time To Build to anyone willing to read it and write a review, either on Terran social media, or electronic booksellers, or other book enthusiast sites such as Goodreads.

In addition to the free eBook, the Mediator will randomly select an Agent to receive a signed paperback copy of A Time To Build for every hundredth book (paperback or eBook version) sold, until such a time as every Agent has received one.

To enroll, please visit the facebook page at

We thank you for your assistance.

From the Office of the Mediator, Sol III Division,

Greetings, Terrans (and resident aliens),

In the United States, Sol III, 11 November (2046.045 GCE) is a time when ordinary citizens take the time to honor those who have served their country during times of tribulation. The brave men and women of their Armed Forces often sacrifice life and limb to protect basic freedoms that many take for granted. That such freedoms are routinely taken for granted is possibly a testament, not only to their effectiveness, but also to their selflessness.

We at the Office of the Mediator, along with the rest of the Galactic Union, would like to take this opportunity to thank these brave souls, wherever they may be. Whether you know it or not, you are heroes to us all.

OM-SIII-Div. 2046.045 GCE
