Sword & Sorcery

I've dabbled in the sword & sorcery realm a little, and when King Conan of Summeria isn't kicking me out, I've enjoyed my tenure. Thus, with a soon-to-be-announced site I have landed a new prose serial series. This features Bolstagg Freilander, a swordsman of great skill and Nordic tradition, venturing into that Realm of Murk known famously as the Black Kingdom. His task is a difficult one, but with Frigia, a practitioner of the Way, at his side he cannot fail. Sort of.

Anyway, the serial should be somewhere close to 1K words every other week when the site launches. Which could be soon. Like, this weekend. If you can't wait until then, maybe you should check out his first adventure.

Grab a flagon of mead and your best wench, and enjoy the tales of a true unruly master of the blade!

The Skull - comic strip coming soon!

So, do we all remember my modern pulp hero, The Skull? His image takes up the header for this blog. Here's another reference for you:

There's a color version of that finished, but it will be used for promotion for The Skull's first book of collected short stories, as well as for his new comic strip.

What's that? A comic strip featuring The Skull? Oh, my, yes. Our buddy, CW Russette, is launching a new comics oriented fiction site. The Skull will have a strip like you would see in your weekly newspaper featured there! The first strip is completed and turned in, so when the site launches, you'll see it for the first time!

I'm super excited. Are you excited, because I'm excited. You should be excited.

General Update

What a busy world we live in! Or, at least I live in. I never seem to have a free moment, as all of this writing keeps my more active than ever. Toss in a full time job, a part time job, and my various freelance work and the sun seems to set sooner rather than later.

I have all of the stories compiled for an anthology I'm editing entitled, "Red Planet Rising." Here's the awesome cover art from our buddy, Brandon Wilt:

Six stories all centered on Mars. We have robots, dragons, truckers, pinkertons, and of course, Martians. Some Class-A talent here with Josh Reynolds, Curt Fernlund, and Ed Ainsworth weighing in! Should be exciting. Oh, and I have a story in there as well. Look for that release soon.

I'm also furiously writing up daily content for Lots of goodies on their site, so go click something.

I've also worked up a little deal with Brandon Wilt to draw a comic strip that will appear soon at CW Russette's new online publishing company. More details on that soon, but it features The Skull, with me taking care of the writing duties.

Lots of polls being written by me at Maybe go check them out and cast your vote.

And many secret projects underway as well! Like I said, busy-busy.
