Redford Comic Con is Tomorrow

0

Come join me at my last scheduled book-singing appearance for the foreseeable future! Entry is only $3.00! $10 for families! I have book deals available including a book bundle, and a discount on Volume II if you’ve already purchased Volume I! I made a short video of some of the items I will be bringing.

I have been dabbling in the hobby of “vidding”. You can check out and subscribe to my youtube channel with a nice array of rare romantic and sci-fi film fan videos here. Need to add some vampire videos! ūüėČ

I had a nice time at Bowl-A-Con this past weekend. I got to hang out with some of my comic convention friends and make new ones. I also got some good drawing in! You can see for yourself in the time lapse video and photos below.

I sent out a few promotional videos this afternoon via Facebook and Twitter for my latest release, Skin of the Night.

Short 30 second videos on Twitter…

And the full “director’s cut” on facebook…

 

I hope you like them! Autographed copies of the book will be available to order in June. You may also come visit me and pick one up at Cosplay Con in Taylor, Michigan on June 4th!

Contest Entry

1

Here is my finished entry for the Christopher Hart Contest #4:

I think it took about 4.5 hours to complete all three drawings and upload them to the computer.  The 3/4 turn was definitely the hardest!  I have enjoyed working with the markers, but it is more time consuming than using the computer.  I will post any feedback I get from my drawing after the contest has ended.

Another one of my favorite Arcana tracks.

The Sick Rose Novel In The Hands of Beta-Readers

0

There can’t be anything more terrifying to an aspiring writer than having your first born draft exposed and in the hands of a team of readers (other than your mother). ¬†It has to feel similar to someone rummaging through one’s purse or being naked in public.

It’s time to get serious. ¬†I need to know if my story is something that people will enjoy reading, or if I’m wasting my time. ¬† I’ve gotten great feedback so far on the story and illustrations on my blog. ¬†Can the story sustain itself in a novel format? ¬†No matter what, I will continue to write, draw, and update this blog. ¬†But now you see what has been keeping me away from the online graphic series – this novel. ¬†And, well, an adequate amount of self-doubt.

So, we’ll see what they have to say. ¬†I’ve enlisted a group of trusted friends and fans, avid readers and fellow writers. ¬†People I know who will be ruthlessly honest. ¬†And that is REALLY SCARY!

In the meantime, please enjoy this awesome video from last year. ¬†I would like to do one more illustration for the blog of someone who is already dead (SPOILER ALERT!) in this video…if you’ve been following the story! ¬†ūüėČ

You can be a beta-reader too!  Chapter One is almost entirely posted already!  Feedback is always welcome!
