The Devil Gave Me A Gun

The Devil Gave Me A Gun is a short story that I wrote with fellow writer Keith Latch over the last few weeks. It's a story that I don't think either of us could have wrote by ourselves. It was a really fun experience and it won't be the last time we collaborate on a story, either. Right now it's 99 cents at amazon and we're enrolling it into the KDP Select program, because the free promotional days are just amazing. The reach I've been getting by sheer amount of downloads still boggles my mind, whether it will translate to increased sales or some sort of fan base I don't know, in the meantime it's just cool to watch those download numbers skyrocket through a promo day.

So far, my trying to write a new short story every month this year is working out. This will be my February story and will be available for free in February for at least two days. Next month's story is done and I just have to go back in and fix it up so it's fit for consumption. So, get used to more of these posts, but I'm not trying to get you to cough up 99 cents every time I write something. No, what I'd like is for everyone to download it on a free day and leave a review. A story in exchange for a few words expressing your thoughts on it is a great deal, I think.

But enough about that, I have to get back to lettering comics…

Muppet Sherlock Holmes

Here's one of our Sketch Attack assignments--it was for any version of Sherlock Holmes, so I used Muppet Sherlock Holmes. The last assignment was Godzilla which was a ton of fun too. I chose Hedora, which you can now see here: http://sketchattack.tumblr.com/ our current assignment is Medieval related and the doors are wide open. I think I might do a dragon. Not sure just yet.

GODZILLA! GOJIRA! AND HIS MONSTER FRIENDS!

This week's Sketch Attack assignment was to pick a Godzilla character from any of the movies and either do a stand alone character or a fight scene. I didn't have enough time to do a fight scene but I did do a sketch of Hedora (The Smog Monster). You can check out the sketch over there, or over here: http://sketchattack.tumblr.com/
Also check out everyone else's sketches as they are all pretty rockin'.

A World Most Broken

So I've been writing a lot of short stories lately. At least little bits of one here and one there. And I decided to put out what one of my favorite short stories of my own has been on it's own as part of KDP Select. I'll be running a special promo on it soon and I'll let you all know when you can pick it up for free. For anyone who picked up Dark: A Horror Anthology, it was my story from there: A World Most Broken. It's a world I've been wanting to revisit and I think this will be the year to do so since as some of you may know I've set myself a goal of writing a NEW short story every month with the intention of releasing it via amazon's KDP Select program. The chance to be downloaded hundreds of times per day is fascinating to me. Even if it yields more shitty reviews than positive reviews. It's lighting a fire under my ass and making me excited to write and create new stories which is all I've ever really wanted to do. I made a quick cover for it--nothing great--but I think it's suitable and serves it's purpose.

If you want to pick it up for 99 cents, I won't stop you:
http://www.amazon.com/A-World-Most-Broken-ebook/dp/B006ZPRTU8
but I'd rather you pick it up for free and help me climb the charts and leave an honest review instead of shelling out the pennies.

Myctophobia Begins Fundraising And Preproduction

Freakwolf Productions is happy to announce that their upcoming short film Myctophobia begins
production in February as part of the short film compilation The Collective Volume 4. The theme of
all the films on The Collective Volume 4 is emotions. Writer/Director Bryan Wolford was given Fear and
while researching different phobias Bryan settled on Myctophobia which is labeled as a Fear of Darkness. He then crafted a story about Kelly who has a fear of the dark and while at home by herself the lights go out. She soon finds herself bombarded by sights and sounds that only strengthen her fear of the dark. Is all of it really happening or only in her head? The Collective Volume 4 is scheduled to premiere at the Days Of The Dead convention (www.daysofthedead.net) on July 6th -July 8th in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The project is currently fund raising through Indie Go Go in the hopes of raising a small amount
of money to make sure the cast and crew gets a little pocket change out of the experience and to help
pay for some special effects for the film. All of the filming with be done over a weekend in late
February thus keeping the costs low. Anyone can donate to the project through the Indie Go Go page
and receive incentives like signed copies of The Collective Volume 4, an invite to the cast and crew
screening, and a cast and crew exclusive t-shirt. Info for donations can be found at IndieGoGo.Com/Myctophobia.

Even a little bit helps!

Sketch Attack Art Blog

A few weeks ago I was asked to join a new Sketch blog by a friend of mine--Pat (who is also running the blog--and one helluva talent). Of course I said yes and so far haven't missed a deadline. All of two of them. Our first subject was a Star Wars character--I chose Bossk, as you can see here in this post and the next subject was Sherlock Holmes. I chose Gonzo from BOOM! Studios Muppet Sherlock Holmes' books and you can check it out here: http://sketchattack.tumblr.com/ when it's live of course, which will be sometime by the end of the day. Regardless you should go over there and check out the blog and follow it. It's going to rock. Each artists gets to choose a subject and I have a few ideas for when my turn comes up.

2011: GOOD RIDDANCE!

Last year was a roller coaster of some very epic proportions for me--mostly career oriented, but anyone who has a career or even a job knows what that can mean. For most of the year I had no idea how I was going to pay my mortgage and what the hell that meant for my future, and more importantly my family's future. I've survived and things are getting better so I can't really complain anymore.
2012 is going to be a year of rebirth for me. I plan on getting off this roller coaster and then setting it on fire. 2012 is going to be a year of smarter moves. 2012 is going to be a year full of exciting projects, and the year I really start focusing on my personal projects. Things like Stay Dead 2, a convention sketchbook, t-shirts and new tattoos.
Also, as you can see, I tweaked the blog a bit. I like it and think I won't touch it again till 2013.
