About Me

Things seem to be moving right along on all fronts.  Unwanted Heroes is staying on schedule.  I finished chapter V today.  I was happy with how it all worked out.  I’ve said it before, but I really am amazed by how it’s all playing out building a bigger picture than what I had originally intended.  Every chapter expands beyond what I have planned, and creates a whole new direction stemming from the planted seed.  I’m delightfully impressed.  Not so much with myself, but with the process itself.  I will say about myself, though, sometimes when you’re writing a story, no matter how strongly you feel about it, or how involved you are in it, there’s a few times that you hit a block and you’re not sure how to move forward or connect the pieces in your mind with what’s on the screen.  It’s not writers block, it’s that internal search for the right word, or phrase, or paragraph, etc. to bridge everything and carry it forward.  I, luckily, haven’t hit that moment as of yet.  Every time I think I’m about to hit the rock in my garden, it turns out to be a clump of dirt, and I plow through.  The bad part, is that I keep getting diverted with a new area or aspect I want to pursue, and have to bring myself back.  It’s quite the spider web. 

Anyhoo-ville…  As stated before, I’m partnering with Rebel Stars Studios for the HeroesCon this year in Charlotte, NC, June 4th – 6th.   As of this past weekend, the booth has been secured, so we are confirmed.  In case you haven’t been keeping up with the guest list for this year, it’s going to be quite interesting.  Some of the returning guests are:  Frank Cho, Brandon Peterson, Adam Hughes, Jamal Igle, and Michael Golden.  Some new(er) faces this year are: Mark Bagley, Brain Bolland, Dustin Nguyen, Tim Sale, and Rob Liefeld.  Yes, rub your eyes and look again.  Rob Liefeld.  I’m going to take a cue from Forrest Gump and just move on.  It should be a great time.  I can’t wait.  If you want to find out more about Rebel Stars Studios or the HeroesCon, go here and here .

So, I’m sure many of you are wondering what ever happened to Die and Let Live?  Well, indefinite hiatus is the best way to describe it.  I wanted it to be the best it could be, and opted to do more than what I had initially conceived.  My photographer agreed with me.  We wanted, nay, needed an authentic location to shoot.  I still have the full support of everyone that had been tapped to work on the project, which is fantastic.  Once we get a good location, we’ll be on again.  It’s not gone, and it’s not forgotten, it’s just on hold.   On the future project’s side, I haven’t worked on some of the things I had planned on this year because other things have taken over in priority, and that’s ok.  I’m comfortable with that, but I’m still anxious to get some of these other ideas written.  But, they’ll come. 

That’s this week’s update.  UH chapter III will be posted with next week’s blog and progress update.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to talk about the collaborative project that we’re working on for the Con.  We’re still getting things together.  Might be able to drop some early looks as they develop.  Until then. 

I’m on a horse.
