No one has posted a story yet, hopefully because all your devious little minds are churning away at the myriad crazy lipstick and eye shadow names and having seizures trying to make a coherent story line. I have begun writing mine and it is up to 133 words and seven of the names I chose. In addition, I just added a thread at Sffworld.com to give the inventive minds that churn out such fun stories in the monthly contests a chance to join in. So put on you best warpaint and get busy writing.
I just wanted to pass on that since I closed my Patreon page, I am in the process of opening up my artwork on deviantart to allow for the purchase of prints again. This is an easy way for me to get product into your hands because the website does all the printing and pays me a percentage on every sale. So, if you would like to support my artwork and get some unique prints for yourself or a friend, follow the link on the left of this page to my deviantart page.
Hey everyone, I just wanted to let you know that I have closed my Patreon page. I have not been able to post content there because of the new job taking up so much time; however, I look forward to rethinking how to bring more excitement and value to those who follow my work. One door has closed, somewhere another has opened. Stay tuned for updates.
P.S. There is a lot of content currently on this blog to check out now, please enjoy.
I have been wanting to post about this for several weeks now but life has just been getting in the way. I sent out for the above book I found out about at devianart.com under the artist under the tag name chasingartwork. I decided it was time to try supporting an artist as I would like to some day be supported so sent away for the book about two months ago.
I was beginning to worry about the order when it was a week or two beyond when it should have arrived and was about to send a message when it finally showed up. It could not have come at a better time. I had a particularly rough work day and came home late. Well, it wasn’t long before I was ripping the package open and enjoying my purchase. But the joy was not over yet because, just inside the cover, there was the poster of their interpretation of Aku, one of my favorite characters in Samurai Jack. Signed no less. I seriously love the color scheme of the poster as well as the artwork. If you get a chance, I recommend checking out their deviantart page.
Guys and Gals, you are in luck today. I had decided to open up another story for the public, but when I went searching on my Patreon page, I realized I had not loaded this particular story. So I am actually adding a new reward for the month that I have decided to share with the public. The story is a little over a thousand words, making it a quick read, and is called “A Taste of Armageddon”. Here is what I posted on the sight:
“Well, it has been several months since I have uploaded a new story and I also had this particular one in mind, given the state of the union. I honestly thought I had already uploaded this one a while ago. I am glad that I hadn’t. I am leaving this reward open to the public so feel free to leave comments on my blog, which I very much look forward too.”
I have decided to begin opening up my Patreon story rewards to the public in hopes of stirring up interest and gaining readership of my work. If you like what you read, please consider supporting the creation of more work. It only costs $1 a month or $12 a year and would serve as a morale boost and a reason to continue. The first opened post contains the story “Sanity” along with the cover I created for the collection I hope to publish. Find the files here First Patreon Reward.
