Varg Finds A Home.

The premier of the province two across from mine recently announced to his province that he was the Grinch, and there would be no Christmas this year, for the sake of everyone’s lives. The video went viral in our corner of the world.

The premier of my province has been far more conservative, talking about three week trials and “we’ll see”, but in our household, we’d already come to the grim conclusion that the best thing we could do for everyone would be to stay in our respective homes. More than half the people who normally sit at our Christmas dinner table won’t be joining us this year, and we won’t be visiting the extended family on Christmas Eve, either.

The Internet will eleviate some of the stress, though. We’ll be talking to everyone via video calls, including those we would not normally see on Christmas day.

I have also made a decision that calories will have zero impact on Christmas day, and so will carbs, fat and sugar.

Are you limiting your Christmas, this year? And how will you help compensate for that?


An Average Night on Androkles was released this morning. If you pre-ordered, you should already have your copy.

All Danny wants is an average night…

What starts out as an undisclosed job hunt turns into an interesting dinner date, but even that gets hijacked by a visit from an enemy Danny didn’t know she had.

Worse, the enemy has snatched Dalton and wants Danny in exchange, which leads Danny into an evening of surprises and a new companion…

Space Opera Science Fiction Short Story

Praise for the Imperial Hammer series:

I love sci-fi and this story makes me love it even more.

I am in awe of the writing ability and imagination of Cameron Cooper.

Before reading any of this author’s work, I would have stated I did not really like science fiction. THAT has changed.

It’s full of action from beginning to end.

Brilliant and intricate.

Many memorable characters – but my favorite is Varg.

Twists and turns so you’re never really sure what is going on behind the scenes.

 I am so enthralled with the series that I am impatient for the release of the next book.

 Cameron somehow describes scenes in ways that make me feel like I am actually present

 This story truly does justice to the legacies of the greats, like Orson Scott Card and Frank Herbert.

 Edge of your seat action will keep you captivated until the final page!!

And I will have news about the final installment in the series, very soon. 😉
