It’s funny to think that just a few months ago I was a little…lost and unsure of what I would work on now that Uptown Girl’s graphic novel adventures had finished.
Right now I feel a little overwhelmed but luckier than ever with the projects I have going on. Yes, The Retros is ongoing and will be for a long time, but I also started a new graphic novel series as well as a children’s book titled ‘Bear and Rabbit’. I thought I fell into a happy little world with working on The Retros, the new series and trying to find a publisher for Bear.
But a little secret project presented itself that I had a hard time saying no to. More on that in the coming weeks. I wasn’t sure if I could squeeze in anything else, but I never want to pass up an opportunity. But what has hit me out of the blue was something else I hadn’t expected. I don’t want to talk about it yet, but it’s pretty amazing. The longest shot in the history of long shots, but dammit, it’s a shot.
Sorry to be vague but rest assured there’s been a reason for lack of content here lately.
At any rate, the bear book is done and you can read it online. I do not intend on self-publishing this thing and since there’s a zillion to one chance of it finding a publisher I wanted people to read it. So, please read it here!
The long shot project has put the publisher search for Bear and his rabbit pal on hold for a bit but I hope to start researching publishers and agents by the end of the month.
I am almost finished with the first Retros collection as well. It’s being proofread by my friends Susan and Mark and the cover was colored and assembled and magicked by my friend Ben. I am lucky to know such talented, generous people and luckier to call them friends.
Here’s the amazing cover!
The Retros-Fast Forward should be at the printer by the end of the month and ready to go for MSP ComicCon in May. I would love to have the second collection out this fall, but we’ll see.
Anyway, I can’t wait to show you what I’ve been working on. Soon. 🙂
