The Great Agent Hunt Is ON


Well kids, this means the Waves of Darkness books won’t be back on the market as quickly as I’d originally planned. Rather than self-publishing the re-release, I’m going to make another effort to get them signed with a good literary agent. I already have a few queries out, and plan to keep sending them out until I get positive responses.

I hope to get episode two of The Adventures of Pigg & Woolfe cleaned up for release soon and artwork for the cover done.


In other news, I just learned yesterday that Wally, one of my two ten-year-old cats, is diabetic. We’ve been instructed to not give the cats dry food anymore. The carb levels in dry food are too high, and feline digestive systems simply cannot process them. There’s going to be a lot of research on what to do and not to do for him. I’ll have to teach my husband, who hates needles, how to give him his evening insulin shot. My job makes it impossible for me to maintain the shot-every-twelve-hours routine.


Pigg & Woolfe Go LIVE on Kindle!

That’s right, boys and girls, you can now own you very own copy of A Chance Encounter, the high flying first episode of The Adventures of Pigg & Woolfe.

This episode is available exclusively on Kindle.

Also, watch this site for the Pigg & Woolfe additions under the Books and Short Stories heading in the menu.

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.

Shopping Update

Ahoy and my apologies for the prolonged blog silence. I’m working on correcting that as I’m able. Unfortunately for my writing, artwork, and this blog, my day job is beginning to get busy with the overtime. It’s going to be like this or worse on my internet attendance over the next 8 months, so please be patient.

Anyway, I just wanted to alert you to the fact I’ve added a few more listing to the Smuggler’s Cove and Huckster’s Haven page. Given the stacks of business cards I’ve collected, I may have to reorganize it into a separate page for each category with new additions temporarily posted to the landing page to save on the scrolling. However, that project will have to wait a bit until I have the time to do it properly.

Now go; buy all the things!
