About Me

             Well, as you may have noticed, Chapter XXVIII was a week late.  Sorry.  That was planned, but it wasn’t planned.  Let me ‘splain.  No, there is too much, let me sum up.  I was planning to temporarily move Unwanted Heroes updates to every three weeks during the spring to give me more time to work on the collected editions, and the convention stand alone, Terror IX from Outer Space.  In addition to that, I still have to write the regular chapters, and do the breakdowns on Fairy Tale Knights issues 2 &3.  Plus, I’ve been collaborating with my good friend James on a Steampunk story.  The details are working out rather nicely, and we should have a nice little novella on our hands.  For those of you who aren’t familiar with James, we worked together on the soon to be defunct site Raptorface, and you can check him out on his other site, here:

            It’s been a while since I done this, let’s do an update, shall we.  First off, Fairy Tale Knights preview book is available for digital download here:  If you are unfamiliar with the story, spend a dollar and check it out.  IT’S A DOLLAR!!  Gee whiz Scrooge McDuck, splurge a little.  The story is about a girl named Mila and her wolf familiar/friend Patrick.  Mila is a knight in the order of the Red Hood and protects the Land of Imagine, filled with fairytale characters from each other and outside forces.  That’s the elevator speech version.  The preview has an 8 page story, plus character sketches and details about the five issue series.  My partner and artist on this is Antwon “Wolly Vinyl” McNair.  He is also the creator of the book.  You can see more of his work and check out his convention schedule at his site (same site as the store):

            I hope everyone is enjoying Unwanted Heroes, errors and all. *groan*  Unfortunately, the schedule that I’ve been keeping with the writing and the posting has been very last minute, and hasn’t given me the opportunity to edit it as well as I would like, or is needed.  We are getting close to a close for the first story arc, and, if all goes well, we should be wrapping up about mid-summer.  Hopefully, about chapter forty.  After that, the plan is to take a short break, focus on 117 Days in Hell, and then return to writing Unwanted Heroes book 2.  As a reminder, book two will not be posted in chapters on the site, and will be published as a complete book.  Right now, I’ve been re-editing the chapters for a reprinting of the first six and Bury My Mask at Washington Square, as well as the other chapters.  Collection one is getting a name, tentatively titled “Face the Strange.”  Collection two will be “It Never Rains, But It Pours” and three, “Just For One Day.”  If you’ve been following the story, then the titles are pretty clear.  “The final collection will be, “Ashes to Ashes.”  

            Now, I’ll give you a little info on Terror IX from Outer Space.  This story tells the end of the heroes first encounter with the Cycksiks aka Terror IX.  It involves Colonel Courageous and Major Tom going to the Cycksiks’ planet and wrecking shop.  I promise plenty of action. 

            Okay, time to wrap this up.  With the chapter schedule temporarily stretched out, expect more regular posts and updates.  Oh, and for those of you living nearby, I will be attending the Roanoke Valley ComiCon on April 2nd.  Stop by and say hi, grab a book or two.  I should have some copies of the FTK preview book on hand as well as some mini-posters and flyers.  More info on the RVCC:


Be good.  God Bless.  “Let’s just keep rockin’ and rollin’, man.”
