November 2010 News - Coming Attractions

Being a writer/artist/publisher is a learning process. One lesson you'd think I'd know by now is that, in the words of Murphy, "Everything takes longer than you expect." Often, I have so many irons in the fire that it's hard to know what to concentrate on -- what comes next. In the past you've heard me talk about Crimson, Snowraven, dinosaurs, and various other projects . . . And all of them are in the production line.

But the other thing I'm learning is that it's important to set release dates -- so people know what to anticipate when. So, that's my new goal, and here's my current release schedule:

NOW: Crimson & Dragons (Finally! See below.)
December 26 - Frost Harrow: Scream Lover (FH1)
December 31 - Blue Kingdoms: Mages & Magic
January 21: Snowraven
February 15: Kidnapped by Saurians (Dungeons & Dinosaurs)
March: Frost Harrow: Vampire's Dance (FH2 - tentative)

Look for more about these projects in future newsletters (and some below). Don't forget to mark your calendars and tell your friends!

Here's the first line from the story to wet your whistle:

"Is there anything in the multiverse worse than waking up naked and chained to a dungeon wall? I say, Yes: dying before you get to pay back the son-of-a-bitch who put you there."

This is what you've been waiting for. Buy it now!

Announcing My FREE Story Sampler Book!
