Just wanted to send a quick note to readers who are worried they'll never see Bertram, Rollie, Rozz and the gang again now that the trilogy has wrapped up. While the plot arc for There Goes the Galaxy is over, I plan to write other books in the GCU using these characters. The next standalone will be from Rollie's perspective and will likely involve some folks you're familiar with.

Right now I'm working on a novel not in the universe, but the Rollie book will be my project after that. Every now and then I'll see someone post indicating I'm done with Bertram, Rozz and Rollie-- so I figured I'd better try clearing that up.

Thanks for reading-- and for caring!! --Jenn

Wishing each of you fine people of the Greater Communicating Universe a spectacular 2016! This last year was a ton of hard work, but just so exciting. I appreciate you all having made the journey with me. We'll see what trouble we can stir up in the coming year. --Jenn

For the folks who missed it the other day, I'm so excited to formally announce that TRYFLING MATTERS, the final installment of the THERE GOES THE GALAXY book trilogy, is now available in paperback and ebook form through Amazon! If you enjoyed the humorous sci-fi of THERE GOES THE GALAXY (book 1) and THE PURLOINED NUMBER (book 2), you won't want to miss this fun conclusion. The book summary is as follows:

THEY SAY YOU CAN'T GO HOME AGAIN, BUT SOME PEOPLE NEVER LISTEN.

Earth— known to the rest of the universe as Tryfe.
No matter what you call it, the little blue planet’s had its share of hard knocks. It’s been bought and sold to alien developers. It’s been held for ransom. Now the universe’s most famous Tryflings—Bertram Ludlow and Rozz Mercer—have returned to clean up the mess.

And what a mess it is. Family is acting strange. An alien corporation is running the place. And corporate outreach has an unusually hungry vibe.

Of course, even alien overlords need quality staff, so Bertram and Rozz boldly dive into the belly of the beast. As corporate spies, they must navigate a dangerous trail of conspiracy theorists, assassins, energy beverages and boy bands—all while battling the darkest force of all: day jobs.

Can the Tryfling defenders save Life As We Know It, or have Bertram and Rozz bitten off more than they can chew?

HOW excited am I? Oh-- very, very! Look hither at the official cover for the upcoming Tryfling Matters, the last book in the There Goes the Galaxy story arc! This was done by my friend, the galactically-talented Dave White, who did the two previous covers. You should see the crappy sketch I gave him of the concept I thought would work, and from there evolved this!

I will be getting a proof of the final print book in the next week or so and will be formatting the ebook version, and I hope to have this out before Christmas.

Was playing around yesterday and decided to draw my character, Rollie Tsmorlood in the art nouveau style. My first attempt at drawing this style, despite it being a favorite of mine.

Forgot to put this here yesterday... I don't know how many folks here also use the Book o' Face, but I set up an author page today on Facebook that will have news, etc., on future novel projects, including when Tryfling Matters is out. The page is here, if anyone is interested in those types of updates: https://www.facebook.com/jennthorsonauthor/

I have other projects I'm planning to work on-- in fact, I think I came up with the title for my next book today-- so I figured I'd better get this going while I'm waiting for the cover of Tryfling Matters.

Got my suggested changes from my final beta reader for Tryfling Matters and spent the last day making some tweaks. The suggestions were right and once again, once I figured out how to approach it, it definitely made the book stronger. So I'm winding up some formatting and then we'll be onto the "making pretty" part of the process. Not long now, guys! Not long now! WOOOOOO! -Jenn

I believe I have my Tryfling Matters book synopsis. I may noodle slightly with it from here, but this is pretty much where it's headed (and thanks to my friend Dave White for his editing suggestions and brain):

They say you can’t go home again. But some people never listen.
Earth— known to the rest of the universe as Tryfe.

No matter what you call it, the little blue planet’s had its share of hard knocks. It’s been bought and sold to alien developers. It’s been held for ransom. Now the universe’s most famous Tryflings—Bertram Ludlow and Rozz Mercer—have returned to clean up the mess.

And what a mess it is. Coming home to family can be challenging. But when an Evil Alien Corporation is running the place? There aren’t enough mops to go around.

Soon Bertram and Rozz find themselves sucked into in the very system they intended to fight. They must navigate a dangerous world of conspiracy theorists, prophecies, assassins, energy beverages and boy bands—all while battling the darkest force of all: day jobs.

Can Bertram and Rozz free themselves and their planet from the clutches of their Alien Overlords? Or will Tryfe be put out of business, once and for all?
