Book 6:The Winglands hits stores March 28th! Book 7 is half done! C2E2 in April!

I'm terrible at remembering to update all the different websites and social media places, so apologies for the delay in putting up a website post! I usually focus on writing and drawing the book, and not enough on spreading the word. Things to improve on in 2018! Anyways, lots going on of late as the series wraps up:)

First and foremost, Book 6:The Winglands, will hit store shelves on March 28th!

It's got a variant cover by Larry MacDougall and the whole story takes place in the clouds! I think this is a fun story, has some hints of The Racelands, and I think readers will enjoy where the story goes. But beware - it's a bit of a cliffhanger! That's why I held off on releasing it too soon, because I wanted Book 7 to be closer behind:)

Book 7, tentatively titled "The Final Land", is well underway. I've finished drawing the first 18 pages and am planning to solicit it in April if things go well. This would mean it would be in Previews in June and hit stores in August!

And, best of all, I've got a very exciting artist lined up for the final variant! This is actually a change from earlier plans too - the original artist vanished on me so I had to scramble to find someone else, but as luck would have it, my original top pick, first choice of all(above even Skottie Young!) somehow had time in their schedule!! I'm still not saying who it is because I don't want to jinx it, but I'm confident he'll deliver an epic final cover for the series.

And finally, as 2018 rolls around to the spring we enter convention season! I'll be at C2E2 in Chicago April 6-8, Plastic City Comicon in Massachusetts April 21, Kids Con New England in NH on June 10, plus a few more TBD later in the year. Most likely Boston(as usual) and NY, with a chance at Baltimore, SPX, and a few others. It all comes down to when Book 7 gets released and which conventions let me in:) My goal is to do the fall with the full series in hand! And then in 2019, maybe I'll head further west and finally hit the west coast. We'll see. If anyone has any requests, feel free to ping me!

OK, now back to work drawing Book 7!
