What I've been up to for the last 3 months...

Wow, it sure has been a long time since I updated the site! Sorry about that! I'd meant to a few times and either got distracted with something else or posted to Facebook instead. Oops!

Quick catchup time...

I spent much of the fall dealing with the release of Farlaine the Goblin ~ Book 4: The Twistlands. With juggling a day job it takes longer than expected to deal with the legwork. I hit a few conventions, sent tons of copies off to be reviewed, and tried my best to get Farlaine in front of as many eyes as I could. In the end there were more reviews for Book 4 than any of the others, and it was positive across the board with a few really great ones. My favorite might have been Graphic Policy who said "Farlaine The Goblin #4 is, in all honesty, and without any exaggeration, probably the best comic I’ve read all week.". Woohoo! A few of the others were equally glowing, and all are linked from the Reviews & Press section of the site!

In November/December I decided to try Amazon marketing to help move the book, which led into some great directions and a lot of books moved. I then got it into my head that I really needed more of Farlaine on Amazon, so I spent a few weeks setting things up, making digital versions, and getting that side of things up. So as of 2016, ALL of Farlaine is on Amazon! You can order any of the 4 single books or the TPB, all in print or on Kindle! We even put Farlaine in the Kindle Unlimited bucket, so anyone that's already got that can read Farlaine for free:)

The last month has been spent on a fun little side project with someone who wanted to pitch Farlaine as an animated series. We needed to put together a show bible, so a lot of time was spent on getting that set, boiling down the plot, digging into the backstory, adding some new characters and drawings, and hammering out some of the future plot wrinkles that hadn't been put down on paper yet. It seems a longshot for anything to come of it, but why not try?

And now, finally, in February, I can begin to move on to Book 5!  Since Books 5-7 tie into each other a bit more than the others I wanted to get everything else out of the way before I dive in, and then hope to produce them one after the other. I've been gathering ideas and thoughts for a while now so it's about time to sit down and write it all out:) Wish me luck...
