For the past few months I've been working on a number of personal projects, including play-testing my new board game, creating an independent publishing company (Dark Peninsula Press), and spiffing up my new office. I haven't been writing as much lately, so I decided to address this concern by giving my office some much needed attention. So I sat down and polished up a piece I wrote last year, then I sent it off to a publisher.
Below are some pics of my office. And yes, that is an actual samurai sword on top of the bookshelf. Also, the Grindhouse and Pulp Fiction posters are not reprints, but actual copies from the theatrical releases (I used to be a projectionist). I just picked up the typewriter, an Olivetti Lettera 32, and also some ink cartridges. Hopefully it still works.
Just arrived in the mail - my first copy of Lars Kramhøft and Tom Kristensen's Made Flesh! Special thank to Charles Day and Taylor Grant for giving me the opportunity to edit my first graphic novel.

OUR FIRST COLOR PREVIEW!!! Check out this gorgeous artwork for "Swallowed," one of the stories in our first issue of Evil Jester Presents! Illustrated by the incredible Esteve Polls, whose work has recently graced the pages of Zorro, The Lone Ranger, and an adaptation of The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly.
"Swallowed" comes from the mind of Bram Stoker Award Winning author Joe McKinney, and was adapted by one of my new favorite writers, Aric Sundquist, who absolutely knocked the script out of the park. If you guys like scary, fun, and entertaining horror stories--you're gonna love this one.
PS. The lettering is currently in progress, so we'll add the words last.
