Consulting

I’m the bestselling, award-winning author of 30+ published short stories, eight novels, and one novella. My wife Desirée Lee, and myself write, and create the hit mature audience werewolf horror webcomic “MoonWraith”. I’ve also done other comic book work, and branched out into screenplays.

Also, I’m Wiccan, and have made a study and practice of magick. Years of my life have also been devoted to the study of, and dealing with, various aspects of the supernatural, and cryptozoology.

I’d be willing and able to work in the capacity of a consultant in any of the above topics, or fields. That goes for research projects, books, or practical applications. Please just contact me via my website. I have no doubt that we can work out a fair fee for my time and energies. I look forward to hearing from you!

Stolen Library Books

Library

As a bestselling, award-winning writer, I do a lot of research on various topics. As a paranormal author, a lot of the topics I find myself looking into are things that most people tend to brush aside as pure fiction and fantasy. Do an on-line search for any given supernatural subject, and you’re more apt to find hundreds, if not thousands, of links to sites pertaining to works of fiction, comic books, television programs, and movies than you are to find anything serious on the topic at hand. Likewise, most libraries I’ve ever been in have a very limited selection devoted to mythology, legends, the paranormal, and magick.

So, I’m more upset than the average person probably is over this brief article. It’s hard enough to find such material available in libraries without people stealing it. Everyone, please, do not do this! Return your library books so that others can make use of that resource, too. If you want a copy of a given title so badly, then buy one. By stealing it, you hurt everyone. If it’s an out of print book, look on-line. Odds are you’ll find a copy for sale somewhere. Spend the money. Buy it legally. We’ll all be better off.

Blessed Samhain!

Blue Pentagram

Blessed Samhain to all of my fans, and readers! Today is my favorite day of the year. It’s Desirée Lee‘s favorite day, too. It’s known to most people as Halloween. We usually refer to it by it’s traditional name of Samhain.

For those of you not familiar with the true meaning of the day, please read on. Today has nothing to do with horror, or monsters. Samhain (pronounced Sow-in) was originally a festival celebrating the harvest time, and marking the beginning of the dark half of the year. It’s also a time when the veil between our world, and the spirit world is very thin. This thinning of the veil makes it easier to communicate with otherworldly beings, and makes it easier for those beings to visit our world. It’s a time of magick and mysticism, fun and revelry.

Yes, I know I spelled “magick” above with a “k” at the end. “Magic” is smoke and mirrors, sleight of hand illusion. It’s stage craft. “Magick” is the real thing. It’s the manipulation of energy to obtain a goal.

Again, I wish all of my fans and readers a very happy, safe, and Blessed Samhain – regardless of how you celebrate today, and even if you don’t!

Artist Call

Desiree Lee and I are still looking for artists, or art teams, for two comic book projects. One of those projects, “Warder”, is high fantasy. The other is titled “Ravenesque”, and is modern-day urban fantasy. Please see just below for information regarding “Warder”.

Payment terms for “Ravenesque” would be the same.

Both series feature female protagonists. The following shouldn’t need to be stated, it ought to be pure common sense, but repeated occurrences of the problem force me to say it: Anyone even remotely interested in doing artwork duties for either “Warder” or “Ravenesque” needs to be very proficient at, and fully comfortable with, drawing females. Not to be blunt, but, if you’re not very proficient at, and fully comfortable with, drawing females, please do not waste your time, or ours, by by submitting work to us for either of these projects.

Artists interested in submitting for either series need to also be proficient and comfortable drawing an array of fantasy creatures – dwarfs, faeries, dragons, trolls, elves, gnomes, leprechauns, brownies, spirit beings, etc.

Please use the submission e-mail address listed above on the “Warder” ad flier for “Ravenesque”, too.

We look forward to reviewing the submissions!

“Quagmire Fen”—Celebrate Halloween

quagmirefen_Cover

http://www.amazon.com/Quagmire-Fen-ebook/dp/B00B0GHQL4

Bog skulks are small, mysterious creatures with vicious teeth and claws. They turned up in Quagmire Fen some time ago. No one seems to know what they are or where they came from.

Spencer Foster is a young man who has lived his entire life in the poor backwater of Quagmire Fen. He despises the swamp, and wants only to leave and start a new life in the city with his girlfriend. But his callous drunkard of a father has other ideas.

Very soon, Spencer’s life is irrevocably changed. His destiny is now linked to the bog skulks and Quagmire Fen.

What are the bog skulks? Where did they come from? What is the connection between Spencer Foster and the odd beings he’s given so little thought to?

“MoonWraith”

issue1cover

This is the next-to-last article that we had written for use on “Nuclear Winter Entertainment” before that site shut down.

“MoonWraith” is a webcomic by bestselling paranormal authors Scott Harper and his wife Desirée Lee. Scott and Desirée write the series, as well as creating the artwork by way of three different graphics programs. The end result is artwork that appears to be hand drawn. The webcomic can be found at http://www.MoonWraith.com, and a new page goes live each and every Monday.

Recently, “MoonWraith” was optioned as a movie. As yet, nothing about the film adaptation can be said for legal reasons. Fans should keep a close watch on the “MoonWraith” Facebook and Twitter pages—https://www.facebook.com/MoonWraithComic and https://twitter.com/MoonWraithComic—for news and updates.

Set in Medieval Europe, “MoonWraith” follows Kizzy Faw, a young Seer, sent by the king to use her power of the Sight to help locate the fabled MoonWraith. The MoonWraith is a talisman which was used to create a race of werewolves centuries ago. The werewolves’ population has grown rapidly since their creation. This has led to a war between them and humans. It is hoped that, if the MoonWraith can be found, the same thing that created the werewolves can be used to destroy them. However, on her way, Kizzy and her escort were attacked by a group of werewolves in human form. Kizzy suffered a head injury, which has robbed her of the Sight. Now, she finds herself stuck in a middle of a war against supernatural horrors, bereft of the one reason she had been sent in the first place.

The original concept for “MoonWraith” was as a television series. After years of trying to sell the project—and four agents who did nothing tangible to make the series a reality—Scott and Desirée revamped the concept as a webcomic. The hope was to build up a fan-base for “MoonWraith” the webcomic, and then use that fan-base to help draw in a producer for “MoonWraith” the television series. The plan worked. In fifty weeks of running, the “MoonWraith” webcomic has tallied over 24,500 page views, and caught the attention of a producer. The only twist is that the producer has picked up the project as a film, rather than an ongoing television series.

Again, the webcomic can be found at http://www.MoonWraith.com. New content goes live each and every Monday. Currently, Issue #3 is running on the site. Work is well underway on Issue #4.
