Arc 2 (Books 4-6)

Plans For This Year

Posted: January 20, 2021 in Uncategorized

Hey, all, been a while since I last gave an update. So, the plans for this year?

Comics, mostly. (And finishing the prequel to Hell Bent and a group of short stories).

-Complete Arc 4

-Adapt “Rampage”, “Screwing With The Timeline For Fun And Profit”, “Travesty”, and “Messing With The Multiverse” into comics and host those on my Patreon.

-Try for a few anthologies, including the 3rd “Cthulhu Is Hard To Spell” comic anthology.

I’m posting my character pics and a rough script for my entry for that here.

The prompt:

“The Old Gods have invaded, and now they rule the galaxy. (NOTE: You MUST use at least one Lovecraftian god or monster in your story. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Great_Old_Ones)

Some of them are good rulers, but most either suck or are indifferent. Maybe just want to go home, because ruling is a big responsibility.

The gods of mythology and humanity are PISSED, and they are ready to stand up and take back their universe. This is your chance to bring other mythologies into the universe. Any mythology works, or none at all. Your story doesn’t have to follow this prompt, but it’s nice to have a theme running through the book, and that theme is rebellion.”

The story I’m planning would be a crossover with my Hell Bent series. After having been locked on the outside of the universe for eternity, Yog-Sothoth himself elects to come to Earth and get a closer look at the new territory. However, when he arrives in the town of Hell Bent, PA, he learns that not everyone was fully aware of the takeover. Moreover, some (like, say, the city’s newly-minted magical protector) aren’t even scared of him or this situation. Its title: “Did Not Get The Memo”.

A post-Arc 4 Travis, now charged with protecting the rebuilding city of Hell Bent. And yes, he would be the type to pair a bright red coat with his red hair. Height: 5’10”.
My take on Yog-Sothoth. I imagine Trav’s head would be about the size of one of his four eyes. The eyes themselves would have translucent lids that open sideways, rectangular red pupils, black sclerae…


We open on the ruins of a city. There are people going about their new lives, picking up debris. One building is being reconstructed. Tendrils and a yellowish-green glow can be seen hovering over the ruined skyline. The sky looks a bit OFF somehow.

YOG (CAPTION): Since the beginning of time, I have been locked just outside of the universe, watching all. But now that the invasion is complete, I’ve come to see my new toys up close.

Nobody really bats an eyelash.

YOG: Huh…

He comes across TRAV standing on a rooftop, surveying the city, ridiculously-long hair blowing freely in the breeze.

YOG: Why is nobody cowering…?

He reaches out with a tendril, grabbing Trav around the waist. Travis looks mildly surprised at best (though certainly confused).

TRAV: Hey, what g-

He’s yanked upwards into the sky with a yelp. A blindingly bright light shines in his eyes and he holds up a hand to guard against it. And then his expression changes, one eyebrow arched almost to his hairline.

TRAV: …What?

And then we get it. Our first full view of Yog-Sothoth. He’s hovering over the city, holding the comparatively-tiny Travis in one of his tendrils. That glow is emanating from each of the glowing orbs that comprise his main form. The orbs may change configuration. And then we see Travis narrowing his eyes a bit, trying to figure out what he’s looking at, exactly.

TRAV: Okay, so, what’s the deal, here?

Yog’s eyes narrow, as well, confused.

YOG: Didn’t you realize it?

TRAV (HEAD TILTED): Realize what? I mean, dude, I’ve been dealing with the aftermath of a magic apocalypse lately. What, exactly, are you, and which lab did you escape from?

YOG: What…?

TRAV: Lab, dude. When everything happened, a bunch of lab experiments escaped, and you look like the exact variety of insanity someone around here would come up with. So which scientist came up with you?

YOG (OFFENDED): I am Yog-Sothoth, underling, and I am one of this realm’s new overlords!

TRAV (CONFUSED): Wait, ‘overlord’? When did that happen?!

YOG: A fortnight ago!

Trav scratches his chin in thought.

TRAV: Huh…well, that explains why the sky’s been so weird lately.

YOG: …You didn’t pick up on it at all?

TRAV (SIGHS): Look…I’ve seen a lot around here. Like I said earlier, magic apocalypse. I started learning to use magic myself lately. Pretty much immortal, too. (SMIRKS) I see ‘weird’ when I look in the mirror each day. So this? This just feels kinda par for the course.

YOG: Do you not see why I expect you all to tremble?

TRAV: Frankly? Not really. Like I said. Weird stuff. All. The. Time.

YOG: …I’m not sure I particularly like that response.

TRAV (SHRUGS): Just the way it is, my dude.

YOG: Your options are to either tremble, or face an eternity of fire and madness.

Travis reaches into his pocket. He pulls out a lighter and pops it open with a smirk.

TRAV: Fire, you say…

When the lighter lights, his eyes take on a deep red glow.

TRAV: Bring it.

His hair starts to curl around the tendril holding him.

TRAV: How about this…tentacles-off, let these people live their lives in relative piece. In return, we don’t fight back. I mean sure, we’re probably outmatched now, but the people here are smart. They’ll figure something out eventually.

He reaches out with his free, non-lighter hand and pats one of Yog’s glowing orbs with a grin.

TRAV: Sound good, Yoggy?

The Old God is now at a complete loss. Nobody has ever EVER had the sheer audacity to speak to him in such a manner. And then he chuckles.

YOG: I could destroy you all. I should destroy you all. But you fascinate me, Mr. Malone. So I will, as you say, remain ‘tentacles off’, but I will be keeping an eye on this place. If I ever find myself bored with your home, however, I will be back. You have been warned.

He sets Travis on the rooftop again, floating off. Travis watches him go, shoving his hands into his pockets.

TRAV: Huh…wonder how he knew my name…

If accepted, this story will (ideally) be 6 pages and published alongside others’ comics. If rejected, I’ll publish it on my own. Possibly here, possibly on Patreon, likely both.

Hey, so, I’d meant to post this back at the beginning of the month, but I am pleased to announce the upcoming release of Fiction-Atlas Press’s newest anthology Bloodsport, a collection of tales featuring an ever-classic creature: vampires.

It releases on November 30th.


I look forward to seeing what everyone’s come up with for this one.

My own story for Bloodsport is another Hell Bent story called “Vacations Suck”.

Blurb: It was supposed to be a nice, relaxing vacation. That was what Spencer and his rather unique family had planned. But when they pick up a vampiric hitchhiker, their nice, relaxing plans go quickly downhill. Can they get away with their souls (and blood) still in place? Or will this be the most draining experience of their lives?

Did I mention that your purchase of this anthology goes to an excellent cause? Just 99 cents gets you 11 stories about vampires AND helps the International Red Cross!

Happy release day to “The Devil You Know”! If you haven’t purchased your copy yet, then what’re you waiting for?

Click to go to the purchase page

So, this post is to 1) introduce the characters of “Here Comes Trouble”, and 2) give links to the other authors’ sites. Now without any further ado…


Beast Lucky Taylor (which is, in fact, her birth name) is the leader of the trio of assassins known as the Slaughter Angels. She’s one of those that can leap right from loving and nurturing to outright homicidal when provoked. She’s especially fond of making violent threats about those that harm those she cares about, sometimes without making a change to her pleasant demeanor.


Ivy Sangre is one of Beast’s best friends. Gifted with telepathy and telekinesis, as well as a particularly unique type of blood that’s comprised mostly of alcohol (requiring her to drink heavily to survive), she can be a formidable opponent. She’s also the type to laugh at her sister’s expense when the situation calls for it.


Yvette Sangre is Ivy’s twin (older by a few minutes). She doesn’t have the same exact unique blood or powers as her sister, instead having learned to become a powerful witch. She is also very conscious of fashion and would have pursued a career in it were it not for the assassination biz.


Nick (short for Nicodemus) Trouble Taylor is Beast’s younger brother and an aspiring FBI agent. Seeking a sense of normalcy, he had decided to get out of his oddball hometown of Hell Bent, PA. But even as he moved to Quantico, his home just kept following him. How? Well, there’s the part where his sister and her friends broke into his apartment while chasing a target that had some history with him.


Yadira Quigg is the Slaughter Angels’ target this time around. Her whole deal has been conducting bank robberies with the intent of leaving zero witnesses. She can take control of a person’s body with her tentacle-arms. Her success rate in her goal has been 99%, with only one survivor to have ever encounted her.

Check out the other authors, as well!

Hey there, everyone! Hope all’s going well. Just wanted to throw in a pre-order link to “The Devil You Know” (set to release on the 30th of this month). And while I haven’t yet read the rest of the stories in this anthology, I definitely look forward to seeing them all. But there IS a story in it that I know quite well.

If I did it right, the image should be hooked up to the link.

Anyway, a little piece from “Here Comes Trouble”.

He couldn’t argue that point. Though, he did still have some questions. The man sat on the floor, given that his couch was taken. There was an assassin on either end of it, and a highly noticeable amount of cat hair in the middle (now whose could that possibly be).

“Now, ladies…when you say you’re here on a job…is this something that’s going to bring you into conflict with my line of work? He asked.

“Depends,” said Beast, moving to take her designated spot on the couch and crossing one leg over the other. “Been after anyone that’s committed a series of bank robberies recently?”

Nick had heard about that happening, but nobody had a solid description of the perpetrator, aside from them being a woman. He hadn’t been assigned to that case, though. They were, thus far, happening in a different part of town. His job was more in the vein of dealing with domestic disputes. And to his credit, it was rare that he ever felt threatened enough to fire. His fellow officers found him a bit odd, but he was more than willing to negotiate when things got rough.

“A little,” he said. “What do you know about your target?”

Yvette snapped her fingers, and a small folded up paper appeared in her hand, surrounded by a red glow. Unfolding it, she read it over.

“Woman by the name of Yolanda Quigg. Long dark auburn hair, olive skin, tentacles for arms, known for her robberies having a ninety-nine percent casualty rate, and she’s been at it for a few years now.”

Ivy’s brow furrowed, and she leaned over to look at the paper. She had to lean behind Beast to do so, but she was looking over the paper.

“Uh, ‘Vette? That says ‘Yadira,’ not ‘Yolanda,’” she told her, tone flat.

The witch scoffed. “Nonsense. I know what it says.”

Beast also leaned over, head tilted. “No, she’s right. It does say ‘Yadira.’

Her face flushing, Yvette crossed her arms. “I wrote that down in a hurry!”

Nick wasn’t listening to their bickering, however. The description of this woman sounded familiar. It had been a few years back when he first fled Hell Bent for someplace that didn’t have anything to do with human experimentation. He had a girlfriend at the time, and the two were trying to take care of a routine deposit at the bank. As it turned out, a woman with tentacle arms was looking to make a not-so-routine withdrawal and was set to be the only survivor.

He wasn’t sure what it was that kept him alive when the bullet had hit him. It had hit his chest, and things were touch and go for a while. But he had survived. The robber, however, was never caught. This incident was what made him want to join the FBI in the first place, and it still haunted the man’s dreams.

“Hey, Beast, you might wanna check on your brother,” he heard Ivy say. “Picking up on something from him.”

Beast’s ears twitched as she got up, going to hug Nick. “Is everything okay?” she asked him.

Nick returned the hug, nodding. “Y-yeah. It’s just that I’ve met this target of yours once. Came really close to killing me.”

He yelped as he felt his sister’s grip tighten. “…She did what now?” she asked, the menace clear in her tone.

“She, um…she–or rather, the guy she was using as a puppet with her tentacle…I think that’s what she was doing? Anyway, I got shot in the chest. It was her fault…”

The rumbling that emanated from her as she continued to hug him felt markedly different from the purring earlier. No, this was an outright growl. Oh, hell, was she just going to find this Quigg woman, tear her to shreds, then bring her head to him like a cat presenting its human with a dead mouse?

Cautiously, he reached up and scratched behind her ear, the growl soon easing into a purr. Once they broke the embrace again, Beast smiled at him.

“Sorry if I got a little carried away, there,” she said, chipper as could be. “It’s just that this bitch hurt you, and she kinda needs to die for it. Want me to bring you her heart?”

Nick paled. Yeah, that would do wonders for his future: a humanoid heart in his fridge, presumably having taken its last few beats in his sister’s big steely hand. That was definitely not a good look for anyone, let alone a guy that wanted to save lives. What was he supposed to do if anyone saw that, claim that he was on some new diet?

“N-no. That’s okay…”

“You sure?” Beast asked, head tilted with a slight pout.

Was she hurt over that? Just what on Earth had the assassin business done to the woman?

“I’m just not sure I would know where to put it. I don’t have the space in my fridge, ya know?”

She raised an eyebrow. “You sure? Seemed to be plenty of room…”

Nick shook his head. “I’d really rather not have a heart in my refrigerator, is all. Or freezer. Or really anywhere that’s not in its host body, ya know?”

With a sigh, Beast nodded. “Yeah, yeah, I get it. Offer’s still open if you change your mind, though.”

He politely waved her off.

“No. Thank you for the thoughts, though,” he said. “I’m just gonna head to bed now. Leave you three to your business. Please make sure there’s no way this can be tracked back to me, all right?”

“Got it!” came the three women’s voices.

It’s Been A While

Posted: August 25, 2020 in Uncategorized

Hey, y’all, long time, no post! As is customary for this blog every few months, I would like to confirm that I’m still around and still creating (much to someone’s disappointment, I’m sure).

So, what’s new for me, you may wonder? Welp, first off, I’m still very behind where I’d like to be on the illustration work for Arc 4. The plan was to have everything done by late October. I’ve not given up on that goal yet, but it will be a definite crunch. The current aim is to have it all sketched by Labor Day and scream my way through as many of the 201 (still got 170 to go) pages as possible. This is including the 20-page final fight in book 12 where it’s raining blood, there’re naked zombies, magic effects here and there, there’re panels where a few figures will be blurred, and…that may be the single most ambitious comic section I’ve ever drawn.

I’m also hoping to finally have my prequel to the Hell Bent series finished this year. That sucker’s been in the works for 8 years now. It’s about damn time I finished it. Of the 12 backstories, I still have 5 to write. And then the draft will be finished.

I also want to release a set of short stories featuring the relationships between characters in Arc 4 (title: “Connection”).

But the one release that’s currently confirmed is a new anthology from Fiction-Atlas Press: “The Devil You Know”, which focuses on anti-heroes. You can find it on https://books2read.com/devilyouknowfa (available on all major ebook retailers). Release date: September 30th.

My story for this particular anthology is called “Here Comes Trouble”, and it focuses on a certain trio of assassins from Hell Bent.

Blurb: Nick Taylor, a hopeful for the FBI, has his hands full. His sister and her two friends are in town. The three have invited themselves into his apartment while hunting down a target for assassination. Not only that, but this target has threatened his life once before.

Also to come eventually: the rest of episode 3 of my “Don’t Fear The Reaper” comic from…damn, it’s been a few years.

I also wrote/drew a comic for a contest on Webtoon…not that it came anywhere within spitting distance of “winning”, but I’d still want to share it on here. Perhaps on a weekly basis starting on Saturday. One episode a week. But it’s called “The Struggle Is Real” and involves a supervillainess taking on the student loan industry with the help of the guy sent to stop her in the first place.

And eventually, I want to get another comic, entitled “Pain In The Ass” finished so I can share it.

So that’s what’s been going on on my end of things lately. Hoping to keep up more on here soon (and will be submitting a story for Fiction-Atlas Press’s next, vampire-themed anthology as well).

Hey, Look, a Distraction!

Posted: March 17, 2020 in Book Promo

So, due to recent events, and the quarantines and social distancing involved, people out there are undoubtedly looking into ways to keep themselves from constant news of the pandemic or the boredom that’d crop up from having to cancel so many plans. I’ve seen several other authors out there offering their books for free to help ease the pain of isolation, and am throwing my own offer into the ring. Books 8 and 9 ARE finished, but the Kindle versions are not (will look into that this weekend). But books 1-7 will be available for free for a few days (1-5 and 7 from the 18th to the 22nd, 6 from the 18th to the 20th)! 10-12 are currently in the works and I hope beyond hope to have them all ready for Halloween.


But if anyone is interested in trying a horror/sci-fi/urban fantasy mix, combining prose and a few graphic novel sections here and there, now’s as good a time as any! Warning: I would NOT recommend these to children, as they tend to be quite violent, have strong language, there’s one sexual assault in book 3…also, the artwork can be just a bit rushed and the prose may not be the greatest (but it’s what felt right for the books).






Okay, so the links SHOULD work. Just click on the cover to get you to the book. The free promo starts at midnight Pacific. If you feel like reading them, I hope you get some enjoyment in this difficult and confusing time!


And please, everyone, stay safe out there…and be extra respectful of the healthcare workers, people in food services and retail, truck drivers…anyone that’s not able to self-isolate, that has to work extra-hard to keep things running.

An Update!

Posted: December 11, 2019 in Uncategorized

So, here I am with one of my occasional reminders that I’m still around and working on stuff. Arc 3 is still in the works, but I hope to finish it and the prequel this month. There are also a couple other comics and some tarot cards, a couple of commissions, and so many other things.


But one thing I’ve finally managed to finish? I found a couple of lists of 100 pose prompts each. I then combined those two lists and drew 100 pics that’ll be made into a coloring book on Lulu this month. I decided to share the prompt lists and what came of them here, though, because I’m proud of some of them.

Here we go, the final day of this promo! The last author to be featured will be the very awesome author that’s spearheaded this whole anthology,  as well as a handful of others. She’s usually quite busy with all sorts of author services, and her story “The Midnight City” is going to be her last published work for the year (as she quite understandably could use a break): CL Cannon!


BLURB: You ever get that feeling that you don’t belong–well anywhere? I mean, you can travel the world in search of a place that calls to you or a person who understands you completely and still you may never find either one.
Sometimes you can sense those lost people, the ones who don’t belong. The ones who don’t conform, who stumble through life as if they are standing at the edge of a precipice, balancing their pain, fear, sadness, and grief against the call of sweet silence on the other side of it all.
And then there are the ones who mask their otherness with the trappings of life–work, family, even humor. These persons are not so easily called out, chameleons upon the ordinary.
I guess what I’m trying to say is, I was one of those people, the ones in hiding. And my brother, Eric, he was one of the balancers at the top of that precipice, until one day he jumped and changed both our lives forever.

If only there was a way to change history…

On Halloween night, in the dead of the cemetery, Tommy is given the opportunity to do just that. A portal to the past might be the answer to his prayers, but will saving one woman really make a difference in the end?

BIO: I was diagnosed with clinical depression after the loss of my mother, father and husband within three years of each other; all to cancer. 24/7 in-home care, coupled with the loss I felt, left its mark on my psyche.

Depression takes up a lot of my life. Reading and writing are the only things I have found that help (in connection with regular medication), even if only for a short time. To escape to a different world can make a big difference in my mood in real time.

To put things in perspective, when I was at my lowest point, I couldn’t open mail, talk on the phone, or even drive to the store. Walls of sadness surrounded me. As they closed in, tears would fall. There didn’t need to be a reason or trigger.

People ask me why I started writing. My answer is simple: I wanted to create a world into which other people with similar problems could escape. I wanted to share the one place that had helped me for many years.

I have always said that as long as one person finds a little bit of happiness out of my books, I am, in my opinion, an accomplished author. The same is true for every writer out there. Please don’t ever let anyone tell you different.

I read books as well as write them and have visited the worlds many different authors have created. Those worlds not only make me feel better, but give me the strength to face real life again. I want to thank everyone who writes – I want them to know they are making a difference.

Fast forward to today…

I am best known for my FOUR HORSEMEN NOVELS


A #1 Bestseller & Readers’ Favorite Gold Medal Winner ~ Flower Shields: A Four Horsemen Novel.

Meet the four horsemen: Michael, Gabrielle, Uriel and Raphael. For centuries their job has been to guard the gates of hell, making sure they never open. Without the keys, there was never any real threat. That’s about to change. There are rumours on the horizon that demon followers unearthed scrolls that explain exactly how to find the lost keys. This new battle is a race to see which side locates them first.

Michael couldn’t care less about the love story behind how and why the world was created. In fact, nothing matters to him other than keeping the gates to hell closed. If one of the lost keys ever fell into the wrong hands, all humanity would be doomed. He’s not going to let that happen – at any cost.


Tara’s life is nothing short of a disaster. She’s managed to flunk out of college with about the same amount of dignity as every relationship she’s been in. The only constant in her life has been her love for flowers. When she’s attacked at work, a stranger comes to her aid. Michael might be good-looking, but he’s also arrogant, bossy and crazy. He’s also her only chance to figure out who attacked her and why. Should she follow her heart and trust him – or listen to her head and run?




Drawing Strength From Words ~ Gabrielle’s Story: Book 2 in the Four Horsemen Series

Meet the four horsemen: Michael, Gabrielle, Uriel and Raphael.

For centuries their sole purpose has been guarding the sealed gates to hell. Without keys, there was never any real threat. That was about to change…

For Gabrielle, protecting mankind was merely a job for which she received little credit. The vast insecurities of men altered history itself, portraying her as a masculine brute. Taking a back seat to her brothers seemed the right thing to do, but left a bitter taste in her mouth and an impenetrable barricade shielding her heart.


Ryder bounced around the system from the moment both his parents were killed. Between that and run-ins with the law for crimes he never committed, it seemed the whole world was conspiring against him. Never growing attached to anyone was rule number one: a rule he’d never broken until a white-haired vixen, with blocks of ice on her shoulders, walked right into his life. Melting through those frosty layers became all that mattered, even if that meant sacrificing himself in the process.



Meet the four horsemen: Michael, Gabrielle, Uriel and Raphael.

For centuries their sole purpose has been guarding the sealed gates to hell. Without keys, there was never any real threat. That was about to change…

Uriel could pass for a cowboy – straight out of an aftershave commercial – at least in appearance. With a trusty lasso at his side, he’ll take on all comers in a fight to the finish in order to prove his worth. There’s no heading home empty-handed, when he already lives in the shadows of his siblings. A couple of days and a handful of puns is all he needs to make sure that doesn’t happen.
Bekka knows exactly what it’s like to be invisible and has her best friend, Veronica, to thank for it. All her life, she’s been too frightened to seize the moment, especially when it came to her music and love. A chance meeting with a cowboy, and then a gentleman, turns her world upside down, leaving her with a choice that changes all of their lives.
Personalities clash and secrets are revealed in this third installment of the Four Horsemen Series.



Meet the four horsemen: Michael, Gabrielle, Uriel and Raphael.

For centuries their sole purpose has been guarding the sealed gates to hell. Without keys, there was never any real threat. That was about to change…

Blond hair and leadership skills go hand in hand, at least for demigods. That sort of fame and glory, however, comes with a hefty price tag. Raphael is living proof of that. The straight and narrow is his destined path, and in all his years, he never once veered, allowing his personal life to fall by the wayside in the name of duty.

He isn’t buying into the madness his siblings are spewing about true love and the keys—in fact—he’s positive it’s all an elaborate scheme. Whoever is masquerading as Dante picked the wrong family to mess with and Raphael will do anything to prove it.

It’s winner takes all in this final instalment of the Four Horsemen Series. When the paint dries, someone has to come out on top, but can they live with themselves when they do?
