Books, Books, Books!

This year has been a busy one for the publishing arm of Takamo Universe. I'm happy to tell you that we have a boatload of novels, novellas and anthologies published and even more in production. Here are three of the books available as well as a preview of things to come.
The first book, Empire's Rift, is the key tale in the Takamo Universe saga. It introduces readers to the pivotal moment in the history of the galaxy that triggers the ultimate doom of civilization. 

The Naplian Empire’s war of expansion against the Grand Alliance has taken a turn for the worse. With vital serjaum fuel reserves wiped out by a surprise attack, Admiral Daviont of the III Corps makes a long, desperate journey to the fringes of Terran space for a massive undeveloped source of serjaum—the Baedecker Star System. But his action does not go unnoticed. Their mortal enemies, the Briddarri, send their own task force to intercept.

Blog Format Changes and The Rutak Military 1100-2331

There's lots to tell you about since our last blog. The most immediate issue to address is the changes in Blog Format. Beginning in February, we are moving the blog to a weekly format. The main reason for the change is to allow me to do the other work needed to keep Takamo Universe moving forward. That includes my work with the online game development team, editing and publishing additional books and working with designers and other artists on new ship designs and art. 
In addition to the frequency change, we will break the blog into three sections; a serial fiction piece, written by one of our authors;  a current events section detailing what is going on with game, art, and book development; and finally, a backstory section containing the usual boring historical tidbits from me. 
For the remainder of January, blog frequency will be intermittent but at least weekly. Now on to today's offering!

A Taste of Last Run of the Ice Duchess

I wanted to give you a taste of the next book off the production line in early 2019. 

Last Run of the Ice Duchess byShona Husk
Chapter One
Every time Berne Ober came to the planet Distan 7, it seemed to be raining. Hopefully, this would be the last trip. The support would be secured, and the Northern Alliance would be created. He walked down the street to the dining club where he was meeting his contact. There were other people on the street, all going about their business. Rain didn’t stop them here, if it did, they would never get anything done.
For what had started as a military outpost to protect the mine, the city of Durura had modernized and moved past the essentials, but not by much. It was still a military-run city filled with diplomats and spies. It was crude in places, with no soft edges and gentle landscaping. The ongoing cold war and trade embargoes with the Terran Republic had taken their toll and stripped everything and everyone back to the bare minimum.
But no one seemed re…
