Book 6 is still very much in the works, and I have takeovers coming up. Not sure what all I want to put here, but I have information about a charity raffle/blog hop and a giveaway of my own. The giveaway stuff is at the bottom, but there’s more you could possibly win if you read through the raffle info. Plus, the raffle’s for a really good cause.
Hello, blog hoppers! Welcome to our Back To School Charity Raffle and Blog Hop!
We’ll be hopping this week to support a generous cause! Indie Authors Care and Amanda’s Book Nook

For All Audiences is sponsoring this Charity event, and all proceeds will be going directly to The Internation Rescue Committee, specifically the education department!
We’ll be raffling off an 8” Kindle Fire HD, a $50 Amazon gift card, and an ebook library filled with over thirty books! Raffle winners will be drawn September 6th at 3 PM EST.

For a chance to win any of these prizes, all you have to do is purchase at least one raffle ticket. Of course, your odds of winning do go up exponentially with each ticket you purchase!

Good news for you, raffle tickets are being sold at a discount all week long during the blog hop!

During the blog hop, tickets will be $1 each. After the blog hop, tickets will increase to $3 each.

We also have some bulk discounts.

During the blog hop, you may pay $10 and get 11 tickets, $20 and get 22 tickets, or $50 and get 60 tickets.

After the blog hop, you may pay $15 and get 6 tickets, $30 and get 12 tickets, or $60 and get 25 tickets.

What are we hoping to do with these donations?

We are hoping to raise at least $800. There are many ways we can spend this money. Option one is to spend it to purchase school supplies for 40 children. Option 2 is to use the money to send 14 kids to school for a year. Option 3 is to use it for one donation package each which would amount to sending 3 kids to school for a year, one school supply kit, one teddy bear and creativity kit, pay for one new classroom, pay for school clothes for a child, teaching supplies, and a safe environment.

So, you see, we can change the world together and ensure that these students around the world have all the tools they need to get a quality education in a safe environment with qualified teachers.
Tickets will be sold via Google Form to keep accurate records of all transactions.

NO purchase necessary to participate, though odds of winning are greater when multiple tickets are purchased. If you would like to submit one free entry, please email info@fiction-atlas.com with the subject “Raffle Mail Entry.”

An update on things!

First and foremost, production on the comic pages for book 6 is set to begin this week, with some simple layout sketches. There are 38 of those to handle, and I especially look forward to the last 2 sections. One of those sections entails a fight scene, a flashback, and a journey into one character’s mind. All in the span of 11 pages. The other is the final fight. The climactic battle of arc 2, in general, that ends up changing the Abbot/Malone/Taylor/Sangre clan’s lives.

The Patreon-first comic is going slowly, thanks to nerves, other stuff getting in the way, and my sleep schedule being…well, weird.

I’ve been working on an entry for an indie fantasy fan art contest. I have until September 16th to get it done. I’ll probably post the in-progress shots here, and give a link to where one can vote on it once that time comes.

I’ve been working on a poster (as of this weekend) for the Twinkle Dingle series of comic fantasy stories, written by my good friend C.C. Naughton (As found on WordPress). She’s the one that pens these stories, and I’m the official illustrator. Quite the contrast between that and Hell Bent, but both are fun.

There’s another character interview with Travis coming up later this week. This time, he gets to talk to a shapeshifter.

Been doing a ton of reading, for SciFan magazine, an ARC for an upcoming book, some beta reading, catching up on books I’d meant to read but haven’t had the chance to…

There’s also the fan art pieces I’d sketched a while back. Haven’t progressed on the Buffyverse one, should really get around to this Walking Dead one, have gotten part of the RWBY one colored and shaded, though I’ll go in and play with character sizes at some point.

Also…author takeovers keep cropping up. Two next week, eying one in the later part of September, will be doing an event of my own in October for Virtual Fantasy Con (I think…if I remember correctly, anyway).

I hope I’ve finally wrestled my sleep schedule back into submission. I didn’t pass out early last night, so that’s a good sign.

Will keep y’all posted. And happy eclipse day!

Hey! Are you a Science Fantasy fan, by any chance? Would you like to see an awesome magazine grow? Please read this for more info on how you can do so!

SciFan™ Magazine

“We are SciFan.” Those are the words that first intrigued me about the merging of science fiction and fantasy known as science fantasy. It was late 2016 and I had stumbled upon the science fantasy community. I saw posts from Richard Mulder and other admins and learned more about science fantasy as a whole. I learned Richard had trademarked the SciFan logo he designed. I approached him in December 2016 about SciFan™ Magazine and the rest is history.

We are now 8 (soon to be 9) issues into SciFan™ Magazine and we find ourselves at a crossroad. To continue the Magazine, for which we have an extreme passion for, or shut it down.

You see, the purpose SciFan™ Magazine is and always has been about the authors. It has been about giving authors who might never have gotten a platform a shot to reach readers on the largest potential market…

I swear I’ll update this thing more in the near future. It’s just that I have several projects going on at once and sleep is an unfortunate human necessity.

Also, a Facebook friend I’d met through a writing group is facing a major crisis (and by major, I mean “imminent homelessness”). If anyone could spread the word about her GoFundMe page, that’d be greatly appreciated. Donations would be even better, but it’s definitely understandable that it’s not really an option for everyone.

Help?

 

 

DFTR Episode 3, Chapter 1

Posted: August 5, 2017 in Uncategorized

FINALLY, the first chapter for episode 3 is here! Not sure when the second chapter will be complete, between nerves and book stuff…

But here’s chapter 1!

DFTREp3Pg1DFTREp3Pg2DFTREp3_Pg3DFTREp3_Pg4DFTREp3_Pg5DFTREp3_Pg6DFTREp3_Pg7DFTREp3_Pg8

A new character interview, this time with both of Double Trouble!

The Protagonist Speaks

Dear readers, tonight with me are two people who started their day as anyone would.

Looking for a present to one’s wife, they came across a photography studio. What they uncovered there shocked them – and will no doubt shock and disturb you too.

Read on to learn more about the gruesome underbelly of city of Hell Bent.


Tell us a little about where you grew up. What was it like there?

Spencer: About Hell Bent… Well, there’re laboratories everywhere, for one thing. See, where Travis and I are from, science is the most likely career option for most people. My own parents pushed me to pursue medicine. It might not be the most respected job one could take, but it’s still a necessary one.

Travis: Yeah, our hometown might be all science-y and shit, but some of their laws are kinda crappy. Someone commits a crime or ends up…

Been A While (Again)

Posted: August 2, 2017 in Uncategorized

Hey! So, just wanted to give an update as to what I’ve been up to lately…

First and foremost, book 6 is in the editing stages. I want to have that ready to send off for beta reading this week. I’ve also finally made progress on the 3rd DFTR comic, with chapter 1 set to post here this weekend. I’ve been working on sketching part 2 slowly (but surely). I also have a ton of reading to catch up on, there should be some more character interviews coming soon, and while I don’t post often, I’ve still been working away at all kinds of stuff. Hoping for an October release for book 6, preferably in time for Virtual FantasyCon 2017.

In the meantime, here’s the paperback cover for book 6!
