New Sasquatch Sighting

As you all know, Desirée Lee and I lived in the Tampa Bay area of Florida for years. She was there for 11, and I lived there for 14.

Florida has more sasquatch sightings than a lot of people tend to think. Down there they’re typically known as Skunk Apes. Sasquatch in the southern part of the United States tend to be different than those here in the Pacific Northwest. In the southern part of the country, they tend to be smaller, and leaner, with sparser hair, and ill temperaments. In that area, you also see a good number of footprints with odd numbers of toes – four toes are very common, sometimes even three, or only two. It’s almost as if there’s a subspecies of sasquatch in that part of the country.

This morning, I found out about a sighting that took place about half an hour or so from where I lived when in Florida. Desirée lived much closer to this location than I did. Here’s the video:

The timing is good on this since Desirée and I are hard at work on our sasquatch novel. This would’ve grabbed our attention anyway, but, given the timing, it was certain to.

More Wendy Markland

BlackEyes

A lot of my fans know me best for my Wendy Markland series of novels. Sadly, the three previously published books in that series – “Predators or Prey?”, “Necromancer”, and “Vindicated” – are currently unavailable since I parted ways with the publisher who put those out. I have the rights back on all three of those books. There are plans for those to be re-edited, and released under a different publishing label. It’s a slow process, though. Please be patient; we’ll get there.

Once those three are released again, I fully intend to continue the series. A fourth book is sitting here in rough draft form. Look for it to come along after the original three have been re-released. Once Book 4 is out, I still plan to go further. I have a lot of new material in mind. The comic book series, “Wendy Markland: Chronicles Nocturnum”, is still up in the air. Unfortunately, that project is all but dead at this point. However, there are still faint glimmers of hope from time to time; nothing I’m at liberty to discuss here and now, though. If the comic series doesn’t happen, I’ll have story ideas I planned to do in it to adapt as novels, or short stories, too.

Long story short, I plan to keep working with Wendy Markland for a long time to come. There are plenty of adventures, and misadventures, in store for her. Again, please bear with me. I’m juggling several projects at the moment, one of which is on a deadline. I’ve also embarked on the screenwriting course I posted about recently. Not to mention that I’m a husband, and father, too. Thank you all for your patience, and understanding.

Howl Out Cast

Howling_Wolf

Howl Out Cast is a werewolf-themed podcast from New York City. Find their website here. Listen to their next show for mention of the hit webcomic by myself, and Desirée Lee, “MoonWraith“.

“MoonWraith” currently has over 92,000 hits. The webcomic’s Facebook fan page has picked up over 40 new Likes in the past week. The pilot script for the “MoonWraith” television series – what “MoonWraith” was originally intended to be – is currently in the hands of a potential Executive Producer, and a potential director. Desirée and I also have a werewolf fan convention interested in us appearing in 2016 because of “MoonWraith”. Keep watching for more updates on these fronts.

In the meantime, we want to thank all of you for the continued support of “MoonWraith”. We’re just over halfway through Issue #6 on the site. Issue #7 is very nearly ready to go. And check out Howl Out Cast’s next show to hear more about “MoonWraith”!

Screenwriting Course

Very recently Desirée Lee stumbled upon a great deal for me. She found a limited-time special on a on-line screenwriting course. The course is usually almost $700.00. She bought it for me far, far, far less expensively. Things are set up, and I’ve begun the course today.

I’ve posted here in the not too distance pass about how writing in an on-going learning process. Here’s proof of it! There’s no set timeline for this course. I’ll be working on it as time allows between other things – being a husband and father, working on the sasquatch novel that Desirée and I are co-authoring, and everything else.

Speaking of the sasquatch novel, which still lacks a title, we’re moving right along on that!

“Covet Thy Neighbor”

Some time ago I posted here that Desirée Lee and I had a brief cameo in the movie “Covet Thy Neighbor”. Things have been quite on that front for a while. Now, though, the makers of the film have set this site up. You can sign up here, to see the movie instantly upon its release. Enjoy!

Many Thanks!

Thanks

You all know about “MoonWraith” by now, I’m sure. If not, it’s the hit webcomic created, written, and in all other ways produced by Desirée Lee, and myself. Over the past week, the “MoonWraith” Facebook fanpage has picked up 30 new likes. The webcomic itself now boasts over 91,000 hits. We want to say thank you to everyone for the support of this project. It’s a huge part of why “MoonWraith” is sitting on the desk of an Executive Producer, and under serious consideration as development for a film, or TV series, right now.

For those of you who have been hiding under a rock, and aren’t familiar with the phenomenon that is “MoonWraith”, here’s what it’s all about:

“MoonWraith” is a mature-readers horror/action/adventure web-comic set in medieval Europe.

Werewolves, descendents of an original pack created centuries ago by a corrupt sorcerer, have overrun the land. The king ordered the construction of a fortress above an ancient silver mine where scholars and historians believe the talisman used by the sorcerer to create the werewolves is hidden away. This talisman is the MoonWraith.

The king’s men strive to find the MoonWraith in the hopes of using the very thing that created the werewolves to destroy them. The werewolves struggle to keep the MoonWraith from being found, suspecting that it is capable of eradicating their species in one fell swoop.

Kizzy Faw is a Seer, sent by the king to help locate the MoonWraith. However, on her way to the fortress, she and the men escorting her were attacked. Kizzy suffered a head injury, which has robbed her, at least for the time being, of her Sight. She is now trapped in the middle of the war, bereft of the one reason she had for being there in the first place.

“MoonWraith” posts at a rate of one page per week; a new page goes live each Monday – “MoonWraith” Monday. Presently, we’re halfway through Issue #6. This issue wraps up our first story arc. Issue #7 is very nearly ready to go.

Back To A Book

Sasquatch

The proof for Issue #4 of “Confluence” arrived in yesterday’s mail. It looks good. Issue #4 will be next month’s issue – February 2015.

Desirée Lee and I are back to work on the sasquatch novel we’re co-writing. As I’ve said here before, if this book has been published by this summer, we have two good promo venues for it. So, for now, that novel has to be our main focus. The clock is ticking. It’s already late January. Writing a book is more time consuming than most non-authors tend to think. We have a huge amount of work to do on this project still, and not a whole lot of time in which to do it. We don’t want to rush, and put out something substandard, either. We have too much respect for our fans to do something like that.

Also, this new book is actually only part of something even larger that we have planned. However, much as I want to spill the proverbial beans about our larger plan here, I won’t. Yet. Please keep checking back for updates!
