It occurs to me that I have not done a check in post on my own creative antics for some time now. So here's a quick sum up:
The Ravens Crossing (TRC), the young adult science fiction/fantasy adventure I've been working on with Andi Lea and West Thornhill, is still going strong. We are on week 20 of 21 of the first season, with our big 4th of July finale week right around the corner. Head on over to read Morgan & Holly's story today. And here's the link to start at the beginning and read everything for season 1. There's a nifty story button in the top bar with links to all the weeks in order. Keep a weather eye out for our upcoming anthology scheduled to publish very soon and coming to an ebook provider near you.
I am happily working on several spin off stories from the TRC world that will soon be published by Thursday & Co.. Morgan & Holly will have one, as will Sharon & Alex, and Darien is going on a big adventure with his family, as well. Some of the spin offs are also adult romance. The first of these, called Cory's Pride, is part of the "Love is Always Write" event on the Goodreads M/M Romance Group. They are offering 150 free reads this summer on their group. You have to join to read, but it's totally free of charge.
The divers story I posted on this site back at the very beginning of Creative Antics time has been getting a serious overhaul. I have changed the story to a linear time-line and worked to bring more depth to the characters. It's a much better story now. I've already created a simple cover for it, which I will unveil as soon as I'm sure I'm satisfied with it. I have to stew on it for a while first. The original title, which I grew to hate, was La Playa Blanca. Then, it spent many months as the story with no name. The new and much better title is Down Deep. My current working plan is to self-publish that story as part of my one year anniversary celebration of this blog, which incidentally is right around the corner in the fall.
Another of my creative non-fiction stories was published over at The Canary by Hip Pocket Press last week, as well. Head on over to read Bonding with Hondo, a true story about some chimp friends of mine.
And, as for the visual art antics. Well, I had a couple of shows and sold a few paintings recently. One is winging it's way to Manhattan as we speak. I'm very excited about that. I'm working on a series of illustrations for a children's story. And, I've been happily deconstructing and reconstructing some of my older abstract paintings into new and interesting collages. So, my antics continue to go strong, and things should be cropping up for sale here and there around the net over the next few weeks. I'll be sure to point you in the right direction when the time comes.
Thanks to all who continue to support my creative antics. You know who you are. There are not enough words in the universe to describe how much you all mean to me.
