Adventure Travel!

ANCIENT ALIENS IN COLOMBIA 10-DAY TOUR OF MEGALITHIC COLOMBIA


I've traveled three times with the World Explorers Club, aka WEX Club, and those were three of the best travel experiences of my life -- and I've done a lot of it. I can vouch for this trip being a good one because I've spent some time in Bogota and David is the best guide you could have. Even if you're not into the ancient aliens topic, WEX trips are worth every penny spent. His trips feel like a group of old friends getting together. Check it out:

Update

Greetings Patrons!

This is just to update progress on the return of the Library. I'll be checking in more often because I'm almost finished with my latest non-fiction book. Presently, the first draft is completed and I'm editing. Once that's done and I format the book, I can release it (later this month) and my writing/publishing focus will be 100% on LCL and my fiction. That means more regular posts here as I move toward that upcoming new issue of the magazine.

What's being done now? I am making creative decisions regarding layout and format and such. I definitely will use the basic structure of the original magazine again, but because this new approach is a one-at-a-time venture I can dress it up a little more, I think. I had a winning formula before so why mess with a good thing? Well, I'm checking out other pubs to see how far the field has gone so I can fit in -- and maybe exceed. Since I pretty much do this magazine by myself, it can be a colossal undertaking. Still, I am quite enthused -- energized -- by returning to my creation. I think past readers and new fans alike will be delighted and that's what really drives me.

One thing I'm excited about is that LCL Magazine will finally be available in hard copy -- print-on-demand. Each time I do an issue, I'll subsequently make it available in print, probably a week or so following digital release. I think it will be worth it to the diehard readers out there. Another aspect of this rebirth will be the ephemera products I'll make available: tee shirts, hats and other things. Produce-on-demand allows me to keep the brand vibrant.

For now the motion picture division will be on hold while I focus on the primary function of LCL: classic pulp style mystical adventure literature. Since NASA recently announced that space travel is now open to commercial ventures, we stand at the threshold of a vast new frontier and all the worlds of adventure to come. We will need new adventure myths and the old ones will breathe new life. Now is the time for the return of adventure for adventure's sake! This is the spirit of LCL and the return of the magazine.

For those interested in my fiction, I will be shortly announcing the new novel. The cover art has been created and will be unveiled as soon as the first draft is completed -- the rough is already written. As a matter of fact, I have a total of four rough drafts completed, this new novel merely the first of the upcoming releases. (You thought I was neglecting my fiction...). My writing focus for the coming year will be the new novels. The first four are not adventure, rather they are New Pulp mystic noir. However, they will be followed by a new Julius Corbin adventure that will have me back in the neo-classic pulp adventure genre, hopefully in a big way. More to follow on all that.

I gotta get back to editing the non-fiction book -- which BTW should actually appeal to LCL fans because it is about a Spanish explorer in the 16th Century.

More again soon!
