RED FOG: Nazi Zombie Graphic Novel

I love everything about writing. I love the shiny beginning, the hair-pulling middle, the cry-fest at the end. I love editing, and promoting (not so much), and everything else that comes between. Except for the uncertainty of the publishing industry.

And how much harder would it be to publish a graphic novel?

I would never have known if not for the writer Chris Williams, and artist Mike Docherty, and their Nazi Zombies. Chris is an Animation Supervisor who has animated or supervised on a variety of films, including the SPIDER-MAN trilogy, OPEN SEASON, CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS and ALICE IN WONDERLAND. Chris holds a degree in Art History from McGill University and a diploma in Classical Animation from Sheridan College. Mike has 30 years of comic book and storyboarding experience. He's worked for MARVEL, WARNER BROS and SONY just to name a few, and has been instrumental in many great projects including the CONAN THE BARBARIAN comic as well as the films STARSHIP TROOPERS and GODZILLA.

I've been following the progress of this project for a while now, and I'm so impressed with everything Chris and Mike have accomplished. With only FIVE DAYS left to raise the money they need, though, they're close but could use as much help as they can get. Please check out their project and become backer. For as little as $20.00 you could make a HUGE difference and get a copy of the finished project as a thank you from these talented guys!

Welcome to December

A little late, but better late than never, right??

Whew. Am I ever glad that November is over and done with. I'm not sure what to tell you about it. It was productive in its way...although not how I had expected it to be. I DIDN'T finish NaNo. Barely started and got derailed early on. Instead, I decided to go through hell and come out the other side a little the worse for wear.


I came out of it all with this!

I'm very pleased and super stoked to announce that my story has been chosen for inclusion in an anthology to be published by Berkley in November, 2011. The theme of the anthology is "Agony and Ecstasy". You can find out the details, and get the line-up of other fabulous authors (including the amazing Meljean Brook, Margaret Rowe, Helen Kay Dimon, Christine D'Abo, Del Dryden, etc...) here

I also have some other amazingness to share soon, but unfortunately since the ink isn't yet dry, I'm keeping this one to myself for just a little while longer, but more news is coming!!
