Back to the writing board...

Haven't posted anything on here in a while and figured I should:)

Book 3, The Racelands came out in December and since then I've been back to working on writing Book 4 and getting back in the groove after spending the last year dealing with the publishing side of the comic world.

For anyone who wasn't clear, this is not a monthly title released by a huge conglomerate:) It's a one man show by someone juggling a day job.

The first 3 books were written and drawn in 2012 and then released in 2013.

So now it's 2014 and I'm back in the saddle. Once I finish writing Book 4 I'll have to draw it, and then the same with Book 5.

My current plan is to release both books a month or two apart like I did with the first 3, and once those are out I'll then go back to Books 6-7. Sort of like releasing the series in 3 acts.

My current hope is to have Books 4-5 on shelves for the fall of 2014, but I'm more interested in putting together the best book I can and not just hitting an arbitrary deadline. So we'll see how things go:) For now the focus is on writing a good Book 4!

I'm also trying to plan a few convention appearances this year. The current plan is: 

C2E2 (Chicago)
- April 25-27, 2014
Boston Comic Con
- August 8-10, 2014
Baltimore Comic Con
- September 5-7, 2014

Both San Diego and New York you have to apply for, and realistically I'll be rejected by both, but I still applied anyway. So I'd say it's a slim chance at both of those, but if I get in I'm going:)

San Diego Comic Con (if accepted)
 - July 24-27, 2014

New York Comic Con (if accepted) 
- October 9-12, 2014
