In other news…
I’m still writing for the Time Travel Nexus, so please follow, like and share my posts on there. I write regularly for a column called Time Travel Nexus Investigates, which is all about time travel conspiracy theories and urban legends. Last month I also wrote a post about time travel in Star Trek and how the 2009 movie buggered up the entire Star Trek universe.
Here is a list of my TTN posts so far, with links:

Lastly, I got some super-positive feedback from a potential publisher on the first novel in the Million Eyes Trilogy, with some constructive advice on things I can improve and strengthen. So I’ve started a new edit. It’s not a major overhaul or anything. It’s just a case of fleshing out and adding to what’s there. Going well so far…
That’s all for now. Oh, and May the 4th be with you!
