A note on a work in progress

Just a short note, to let you know why I haven't posted anything in several days.

P and I have a little something up our sleeves. We're taking the characters and stories that are posted on this blog and using them to create something much bigger.

We plan to create a series of comic books (or graphic novels, if you prefer) that weave all of these characters into a bigger chain of events. And for those of you who read the first two installments of Phone Book of Revelations, that story will be continued. In fact, that story may be the most important one all the other characters find themselves caught up in.

So, that's where most of my creative energy is focused right now. Filling in story gaps, working on a script, fearing the daunting task of storyboarding, and then finding us an artist. Maybe even a publisher somewhere down the road, if we can execute our concept well enough.

In the meantime I'll try to post other little shorts, related or not, and maybe some of my old poetry. Or maybe not the poetry. (You're welcome.)

If any of you have experience with this sort of thing (layout, pitching to publishers, or anything else), I'd love to hear your thoughts. Oh, and we could use help with name suggestions, too. Both for the series and our "company." I've been thinking about BOOK as the title of the series.

With fingers crossed (when they're not at the keyboard),

Thanks, Tisha! I hope to at least be able to post a collage or random illustrations, and maybe a couple of the shorts I'm writing as a first step to scripting. But I guess I probably shouldn't post anything in it's entirety.

Wow. Good luck on that! Sounds exciting.

Wow, great idea! I had this big delusion of creating comics for my blog, but have decided maybe I should give up after my troubles trying to even create one (which you may have seen, I posted it yesterday).

I have SO much respect for people with artistic talent. Go you!

BTW - thanks for visiting my site!
