About Me

I’m back from the Heroes Con, and all I can say is: WOW!  It was incredible.  Not only did I get to see Matthew and spend some time with him, but I got to make some new friends and fans.  First off, before I start dropping names like I’m at the Viper Room, I’d like to give a big thanks to my neighbors at the Con, Jolly Rogue Studios and God City.  Thanks for being so friendly.  In addition, I’d like to thank Brian Michael Bendis, Matt Fraction, Roy Thomas, Jamal Igle, David Mack, Georges Jeanty, Joe Pekar, Jay Fife, Frank Cho, Dexter Vines, Laura Martin, Wolly Vinyl- and his crew (love my zombie painting.  I’ve made some people jealous.), Marc Lewis, Elaine Corvidae, Jason Sobol, Erik Willimas, and a slew of others that are escaping me simply for a sheer lack of time. (That and I’m still exhausted.)  I especially want to thank Brandon Peterson.  I appreciate you taking the time out to come by the booth and talk with us.  It was great talking with you again.  Joe (man, I hope I’m remembering your name right), it was great meeting you.  Thank you for coming to see us. 

So, the daily blog update… didn’t happen.  Sorry, Charlie.  Couldn’t get a free wi-fi connection at the convention center or the hotel.  I really couldn’t see paying $10.-$15.00 a day for wireless just to do an hour or two’s worth of work.  There was a small dark spot to the otherwise incredible weekend, there was no appearance by William or his lovely wife.  Unfortunately, they ran into a snag at the last minute which prevented them from coming.  You guys were missed. 

Now then…   I wish I had taken more pictures.  There was so much to talk about and show.  Another special thanks to the Powerpuff Girls for sporting the gear.  And once again the day was saved.

I’m still amazed at how easy it is to get turned around at that place.  If it wasn’t for my booth being located on the outer edge, I might not have made it back.  All in all, it was a great experience.  I’m also shocked by how long it’s taken me to recover.  I can’t imagine how the others do this on a regular basis and still stay current with their work.  All that aside, I’m anxious to do another one.  No immediate plans as of yet, but I’ve been eyeing the X-Con in Myrtle Beach in October.  Plus, I’m laying the groundwork now for a repeat to the Heroes Con next year.  Now, as far as our regularly scheduled program… 

Matthew and I were able to get a nice little outline for our next book; only taking a small break from ROTSSo small.  So small.  If you like zombies let me hear you say brains!  Please don’t talk with your mouth full.  I’m still tossing around ideas for Unwanted Heroes.  Don’t give up on seeing that in the near future.  I want to have a good bit plotted out, and two parts done before I post anything.  Creating a brand new world isn’t as easy as it sounds.  Also, look for my second screenplay Chains to make its way to the sight in the next month or so.  It needs to be “cleaned up” a bit, but it’s coming.  Second you say?  Well the first one Blood Brothers is going to take a little more “cleaning” to bring up to par.

Okay, that’s all for this week.
