The anticipation is getting out of control...
Two more days until the launch of Mister Mercury: A Modern Greek Myth! That was the wiki page I just linked there, so check it out if you want to learn about the characters, plot, a spoiler-free synopsis and a certain totally awesome space limousine owned by Aphrodite.
I've spent the day emailing people from my comic-filled past (instead of working on my prompt for my writers' group and reading a short story by one of the members for feedback), including some people in a certain comic publishing company. No, not that one, if that's what you're thinking.
Not that one, either. Think smaller.
No, not that one either! Okay, I'll give you a hint: One of their comics is being made into a movie. Daniel Craig may or may not be wearing a cowboy hat in it.
Yeah, that one.
So anyway, look for Mister Mercury on Eat Your Serial on THURSDAY!
Look at that. Just ONE personal post and I'm already back to talking shop.
Anyway, now Mister Mercury: A Modern Greek Myth has its own cover! Check it out! It was a combination of effort from my friend Kent Mudle and myself. Mostly Kent. I just changed the type fonts.
Mister Mercury: A Modern Greek Myth starts NEXT WEEK (Thursday) on Eat Your Serial! Hold on to your pants!
It has been an interesting few weeks.
I went to the hospital!
Basically, I hated my job working a certain newspaper in Arizona so much that it gave me a migraine headache that decided to dress up as a stroke for Halloween. Except it was May. That's the thing about migraines: No sense of timing.
I still think the possibility that literally anybody is seeing this is pretty low. But hey, the search engines seem to have found the site, so maybe I'm doing something right. After the next launch, I will start talking about non-publishing things, to hopefully make things interesting.
MISTER MERCURY: A MODERN GREEK MYTH IS ABOUT TO LAUNCH.
I don't yet have a cover to show you, but I assure you I've got the best possible dude I could possibly get working on it.
Eat Your Serial has at last sent me a contract, and are simply awaiting my content. I've got the first 20 chapters (about half) of the novel edited. Once their first serial runs out (in about 8 weeks), it's MY turn.
I assure you that it's good stuff. Read that wiki entry I linked above for more info. I suppose I ought to add more wiki content later... but in due time. For some reason, I've got WAY more entries for A Tale of Two Muses, which isn't even HALFWAY done yet.
Anyway, check back later, if you're seeing this. And buy The Mad Scientist, while you're at it. It's only two bucks!
Just got back my first edits from Books To Go Now. After that, I'll get my final edits, and it will be online. Also, if you haven't already, check out the sweet cover drawn by my friend (and former boss) Jason Nelson! All I provided was the words. And the story, of course.
