This is a culmination of my too many interests. It's is an in-between place. It's more focused than my Myspace blog, but less so than my author blog. Here you can find artwork, photography, writing, poetry, book covers, manga and pointless videos. All of these things mesh together to become a reflection of their creator in an in-between place colored like shadows and flavored like frappuccinos and chocolate. It's one heck of a world.

I'm Not Dead....

It's been awhile since I posted in here. With the last book release a lot of things got brushed aside. The book release went pretty well. I've sold at least 120 copies in the first five weeks (waiting for the B&N numbers from Smashwords to get a final total) which for many authors is like handing them an M&M for dinner, but to me it;s one of those cheesecake platters. I think things are moving along. I always said there's no point in getting too excitable until you have at least three books in a series out because most series don't take off until the third or fourth book hits. I think it takes that many for a lot of readers to get really attached to the characters and/or plot.

Have a short story collection coming out as soon as my beta gets done with it ;) And I am 30+,000 words into Patrick. This was supposed to be a 40,000 word novella (as I am maybe half done, I am sure you can see the problem) I imagine some word trimming will happen, but it may end p closer to 60,000 than the 40,000 I'd planned. Oh well.

The Terrible Turtle Conspiracy web comic id back to being posted every week. I have decided to quit posting the pages here, however. if you want to read it then subscribe to it at http://terribleturtles.com. You can have an rss or email subscription.

And of course I've been doing... book covers! however between writing and some family stuff I have cut back and am no longer taking new clients unless they are referrals. I am also not creating original artwork covers because they take too long to do.

But, here are some of the book covers I've done recently, just because I feel like showcasing them :)

And that's probably enough. how many book covers does one person wanna look at in the space of one blog?

a couple of banners

So I thought I would randomly share these because I don't post much to this blog anymore. I need to. I need to do a lot of things ;)

Anyway, first here's the (finally) updated pimping banner that should have been done back in September:

super pimping banner2

If you're on Facebook you might have noticed the new profiles/timelines (looks a little MySpace to me, huh?huh?) so I slapped a banner together for my "cover image" - if you have no idea what I'm talking about check my facebook and you can see it in action.

(That's the new Claudius on the front left. I need to get his Morsels story edited and uploaded to Smashwords)

If, for some random reason, you want to use these go for it - they're under a CC license like 99% of my stuff is :)

And that's all. Back to work!
