“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.

DAZ 3D

For the hit webcomic “MoonWraith“, Desirée Lee and I use several software programs to turn out complete artwork/pages. The first of those in the process is DAZ 3D. However, recently, DAZ 3D upgraded to a new version. I’m having problems rendering artwork. Art for Page #1 rendered fine. But, every single time I try rendering art for Page #2, the software freaks out, and crashes.

Is anyone reading this post familiar enough with DAZ 3D to offer some advice? Thus far their tech support hasn’t proved helpful on this issue.

Issue #8 is running on the website right now. Our script for Issue #9 is in place. I’m trying to get artwork for it done now, before going back to work on “Warder: Changing Guard”.

By the way, anyone wanting to really help us out on “MoonWraith” can support the project over on the project’s Patreon page.

Thank you all in advance!

Nearly Wrapped

“Warder: Changing Guard” is still moving along nicely. I’m working on the final chapter of the first draft. Part of this last chapter of it is taken right from the original comic book script. Part of it is new, tying into the set-up for future events that I’m weaving through the book adaptation.

Once this is finished, I’ll be switching over to artwork for the next issue of “MoonWraith“. After that, I’ll go over “Warder: Changing Guard” again myself before turning it in for edits.

Speaking of “MoonWraith”, since this is Monday a new page is up.

Lettering

Recently, I’ve put up a couple of posts regarding services I offer to other creators. This is another one of those. I’m also available for comic book lettering. I use Comic Life for that. An example of finished, lettered pages can be found by going to the “MoonWraith” webcomic that my wife and I create.

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!

Just a reminder of the support page Desirée Lee and I have set up on Patreon for our hit webcomic “MoonWraith“. Please help to support this project. Our hope is still to get “MoonWraith” picked up as a movie, or, better still, in its original television series concept. The more visible, and better supported this project is by fan involvement, the better it’ll be for us all!

We want to thank everyone for keeping up with Kizzy Faw and the others by reading “MoonWraith” each week. We truly appreciate you all!

MRI #2

Recently I’ve talked a bit here – more than I should, probably! – about my chronic migraines, and depression. These things are still ongoing. I’m still coping with them, doing my best for myself, my family, and all of you – my fans, and readers.

Earlier this week I had a second MRI done. Something turned up on the first one a few weeks ago. The doctor isn’t sure just what, though. It’s a “bright spot” that’s being called “an anomaly”. The MRi earlier this week was to allow the doctor a closer look at it. The “bright spot” could be the cause of the migraines. Or it may have been caused by the migraines. Or it might have nothing whatsoever to do with the migraines. I’m still waiting to hear the results on the newest scan.

In the meantime, work on current projects continues. “Hidden Tribe”, coauthored by myself and my very talented wife Desirée Lee, is still going through edits. I’m working on edits for a book by Eldritch Thorn that is to be published by Umbral Press. Desirée and I are also getting ready to leap into the movie script with Mr. Tom Smith, which will be based on one of Mr. Smith’s fantastic songs. And, of course, we’re keeping up with our hit webcomic, “MoonWraith” during all of this, too.
