All of the materials for Evolutionary Ufology: A New Synthesis have been received by Schiffer Publishing. I will begin to hear from the teams there sometime in December.
No word yet on Saucerville, which I sent off to Double Dragon Publishing, but I have begun the sequel, Conifer, in positive anticipation of the trilogy’s acceptance.
I have also begun preliminary visualization for a horror novel for adults, entitled CE-10. This novel is in the very early stages of ideas for characters, plot, and locations.
I have just sent off the Evolutionary Ufology manuscript and all other materials to my editor, Dinah Roseberry, at Schiffer Books.
All of the photo illustrations for Evolutionary Ufology have been completed by Mark Madland and Chris Olsenius. There is no doubt that this will be a well illustrated book!

Notice the image of a Gray’s face in the above photo–absolute genius!
After being rejected by yet another agent, I have now submitted the Saucerville manuscript to a publisher directly. Double Dragon Publishing publishes many ebooks and paperbacks, including Young Adult Science Fiction, by first-time authors, and without the frustrating intermediary of agents who seem utterly blind to a damn good book. I’ll know in 6 weeks whether or not all of my preparation of the manuscript was worth the work.
I was so happy to find an extremely relevant passage David Barker wrote about aliens in his book Scenarios of Alien Visitation. Evolutionary Ufology would not have been complete without a bit of Barker in it!
Thank you to David Barker for donating the last two remaining copies of Cigar Shaped Craft and Scenarios of Alien Visitation to my UFO research library.
Always good to have another book by David Barker, and these are timeless classics.
I am very lucky to have gotten in touch with the owner of Pegasus Hobbies, who has graciously agreed to allow me to include photographs of two model kits, the Area 51 UFO and the Alpha Centauri UFOs.
What makes this especially fortunate is that these models have been built and lighted for quite some time now, so photographing them can happen immediately. Evolutionary Ufology is going to be illustrated quite well indeed.
