PROSE

 

A NOVEL IN PROGRESS

I'm currently editing a novel, one I started originally writing for a Patreon crowd. It's weird to list it here, but I've written about it a little already, part of cultivating a community of writers however. I've also been reading - and highlighting the holy crap out of - The Last Draft by Sandra Scofield. Another book I read recently that has helped me along the path toward a final draft is Damn Fine Story by Chuck Wendig (it's not located at that URL, but it'll get ya' there). And yes, On Writing by Stephen King is also amazingly useful, and in no need of a hyperlink. There is an absolute ton of great advice and help out there, and the books I've mentioned are, in my opinion, at the top of the list.

There's more short stories and longer prose from me on the way. Watch this space and my social media, or even reach out to check what I have coming your way soon.

Mythic.Indy.short-fiction.jpg

An anthology of short stories related to the city of Indianapolis, Mythic Indy will take readers through, around, under, and above the capital of the Midwestern United States' heart. thinmanlittlebird is the tale of two sculptures in front of the Indianapolis Central Library, and the forces which aided their arrival. It's a sci-fi/fantasy exploration of the artistic impulse, and the merits of breakfast food. Maybe not so much the second one, but there is a mention or two of that particular meal. All proceeds from sales go to support Second Story, an Indianapolis-based organization helping young kids develop reading and writing skills. Buy a copy here.

 

COMICS

An original graphic novel published by Magnetic Press (now a part of Lion Forge), Re•pro•duct: Self-Applied is the tale of Carb, a bot navigating the same confusing journey all of us do, whether we're aware or not: of trying to become the person we want to be. His attempts are met with some familiar obstacles, and others unfamiliar. The world is shared by humans and bots, the latter of which has been granted the right to life within the United States. Who is and who isn't human? There's a whole world to discover within Re•pro•duct: Self-Applied. (Link)

Fearless Future Vol. 2

A sci-fi compilation edited by Marvel editor Chris Robinson, Fearless Future was successfully crowdfunded through Kickstarter. My story, Roth, was illustrated by Manny Medeiros, colored by Jesse Turnbull, and lettered by David C. Hopkins.

In a future where mankind has sought out new worlds, we join a crew visiting the planets which support life, and follow them through the steps they take when such a place is located. The captain of the crew, Roth, makes a decision to alter his own life, and all who are aboard the ship traveling from planet to planet.
