The Adventures of Pigg & Woolfe, 1: A Chance Encounter

Well, it took me long enough. I’d hoped to have this art finished weeks ago. Just haven’t had much free time to work on it, and too many distractions.

With plans to acquire a good tablet and install Photoshop on it, I’m trying to decide whether to keep the colored pencil version or do digital color. Feedback and opinions would be appreciated.

Oh, and as you can see, I’ve created a nifty logo for my self-publishing imprint, Steele Rose Press.

I am already started going over the edits for this episode and plan to use either KDP or KDP Select to publish it. The plan is to publish one episode as an ebook per month, but it may end up being every other month, depending on being able to make the time to get the covers and edits done on time. So, I’m not going to make any promises I can’t deliver on.

I will be doing an omnibus print version every twelve episodes with the original line art for the covers as coloring pages along with bonus episodes and world-building monographs. The omnibus version will not be available as ebooks. they will also be restricted to 18+ access due to the content of some of the bonus material.

Viktor and Crew Are At Sea for Now

As of April 2018 the Waves of Darkness series of books are unavailable for sale (with the exception of a few copies of each title I still have for conventions). I have ended my contract with Gypsy Shadow Publishing.

I will be re-releasing the books at a future date, as yet undetermined, as self-published works. They will have new covers, and I plan to do some minor revisions/re-edits prior to that time.

This comes at about the same time I plan to launch the first episode of The Adventures of Pigg & Woolfe, also to be self-published. Plus, I’m about to enter a period of extensive overtime with my job. So I ask for your patience. I want to do this as quickly as possible; but I want to do it right and give readers the best quality.

Thank you for reading. Viktor Brandewyne WILL be back.

Merry Christmas and an Update

010

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Had my picture taken with the Salvation Army Santa bell ringer outside the grocer just 5 minutes from my “new” (40-year-old) home a couple of weeks ago.

My office/studio is getting in shape. I was a bit irritated to have to order a new power cord for my printer (which will not arrive until next week/year). Guess I should have unplugged it from the device before I boxed it up to move. The plug prongs broke off. Thanks to a pair of tweezers, I was able to extricate them from the printer’s receptacle. I still have a lot of organizing to do in here; but most of the stuff is unpacked, at least.

I’ll soon have a proper library! There was room in the den for the eating table and chairs, so bookcases will be going into the dining room. No more books piled on the floor (for now, at least).

Speaking of books… Maelstrom of Fate is in the running in the Horror Novel category for this year’s Preditors and Editors Readers Poll! Be sure to place your vote! The six previous titles in the Waves of Darkness series have placed in the top ten during their respective years. I would dearly love to see the series sweep as a set.

Remember, I’ve posted purchase links on each book’s landing page on this site. (Hey, I’ve got a mortgage to pay, after all.)

I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday.
