Comic Book Lettering

Comic_Balloon

In addition to my other writing work, I’m willing and able to take on comic book lettering duties for others, too. I use a software program called “Comic Life” for that. I use “Comic Life” for lettering on the hit werewolf horror webcomic “MoonWraith“, and the still on hiatus science fiction and fantasy comic book series “Confluence” – both of which are created, written, and in all other ways created by myself, and my very talented wife Desirée Lee.

Anyone interested in speaking with me regarding comic book lettering work, please reach me via the “Contact” page on my website. We’ll work out per-page rates, and other details.

A New Record

Page_01

On Friday, January 15, 2016 we had a new daily traffic record on our hit werewolf horror webcomic, “MoonWraith”.

Desirée Lee and I want to thank each and every one of you for the continued support of “MoonWraith”. Not sure what “MoonWraith” is all about? Read on:

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

Werewolves, descendants 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.

Brief RPG Update

Yesterday I brought up the topic of dwarves as a race in the fantasy genre. That reminded me that I haven’t said anything here for a while about the RPG that Desirée Lee and I have in the works. It’s one of several projects that we’re co-authoring at the same time.

Sorry to say, it’s pretty much been put on hold – again. Desirée and I each have solo projects in various stages of completion. Some of those are in edits right now. We also have our co-authored sasquatch novel “Hidden Tribe” in edits. We’re keeping up with our hit werewolf horror webcomic “MoonWraith“, too. In case you missed the post regarding “MoonWraith” earlier this week, we’re over 150,000 hits on the webcomic now. She and I are also the parents of a healthy, active 2-year-old girl. Our daughter is a full-time job by herself! And, the virus we caught is still being an issue, too. Our daughter seems to be having a relapse of it. And I’ve never quite gotten over it to begin with.

Hopefully, someday soon, we can get back to serious work on the RPG. We want to. We’re both excited about the project. But it’s still a long, long way from being ready to release. Other things, much closer to being ready, keep taking our time.

But, while I’m talking about the RPG, I have a question for all of you. We keep debating on the best central core for the game. We keep wavering back and forth between the Fate core system, as was used in the “Dresden Files RPG”, or the more standard d20 dice system. Both variations have their pros and cons. Which would all of you rather see us use in the RPG? Please let us know!

New “Ravenesque” Ideas

It’s been a while since I’ve talked about the “Ravenesque” project here. “Ravenesque” originally began as an on-going, low/no budget web-series concept. From there, it evolved into an on-going,bi-monthly comic book. However, that never went beyond a script for the first issue, and a few pieces of concept artwork from a couple of potential artists.

Now, Desirée Lee and I have taken the ideas for “Ravenesque” to a different platform. We’re planning to do with it what we’re doing with “Warder”. That is to say that “Raveneque” will be a series of urban fantasy novellas. And there are new ideas in the mix, now, too. These ideas will add to the richness of Ravenesque’s world, and take the character and settings in directions we had never even thought of before.

The catch?

I’m not sure when work will actually begin on the first “Ravenesque” novella. Hopefully soon. But, at the moment, we’re going through final edits on “Hidden Tribe“. “Warder: Changing Guard” is also in edits. We’re also keeping up with out hit webcomic “MoonWraith“. We have other projects in various stages of completion, too – both solo works, and co-authored books. And, most of all, we’re parents of a healthy, active 2-year-old girl. She’s a full-time job in, and of herself!

Still, with luck, work on the first novella in the “Ravenesque” series can start before too long. I’m very excited about it – especially with the new ideas and directions! – and eager to start the first draft of that.

Keep watching for updates, please!

“Paranormal Witness”

Paranormal_Witness

I didn’t start watching the hit SyFy program “Paranormal Witness” until just before its fourth season began to air. I set the DVD to record all episodes of it so I could catch up on what I’ve missed over the prior three seasons. Most episodes that I’ve seen deal with hauntings/ghosts. But not all. I’ve also seen an episode devoted to a very famous UFO sighting/abduction case. And, part of an episode that I watched yesterday was devoted to something of great interest to me – a werewolf case.

Growing up, werewolves terrified me. I could cope easily with anything else – ghosts, vampires, demons, zombies (which I’ve never been much of a fan of) genetic mutants, etc. But werewolves would give me horrible nightmares. Now, I work with my wife on the hit werewolf webcomic “MoonWraith“, and have written some werewolf literature, too. At some point over the years I’ve gone from being horrified of lycanthropy to being fascinated by it.

The “Paranormal Witness” episode in question was Season 2 Episode 10. The first half of it was titled “The Cabin”. It happened in London, Ohio in 1981, or 1982. I grew up in Marysville, Ohio, which is only about half an hour’s drive from London, Ohio. When the events covered in that episode of “Paranormal Witness” took place, I’d have been 6 or 7-years-old. I was never aware of this case until watching that episode of “Paranormal Witness” yesterday. Had I know about those goings-on as a child, I might still be in therapy, given my extreme werewolf phobia while growing up!

Now, as a 40-year-old adult, I find the case of great interest – both on a personal level, and a professional one as a bestselling, award-winning author of horror, and the paranormal. I don’t want to give spoilers of the episode here, and take anything away from “Paranormal Witness”. So I’ll only say here that the case involved a young family, who lived in a fairly secluded place, surrounded by woods, being stalked for months by what may well have been a werewolf. What the husband and his friend were shown at the close of the case gave me serious chills!

Given my interest in topics such as this, I want to, once again, extend an invitation to anyone reading this to contact me with any such sightings/encounters of your own. It needn’t necessarily be a werewolf sighting, either. I’m interested in all areas of the paranormal, and cryptozoology. Please get in touch via the “Contact” page on my website.

Back To It

A while back I said that “Warder: Changing Guard” would be set aside for a time while I got artwork for the next issue of “MoonWraith” done. That whole process took a lot longer than usual due to software problems. But, it’s done now. In fact, that issue has gone through edits, and is ready for uploading to the site. I’ll get that done ASAP. So, now it’s back to “Warder: Changing Guard” for another read-through before it gets turned over for editing.
