Pulp Writer Extraordinaire

So… coming in 2013, I’ll be adding a new character to my pulp universe. This one’s called Gravedigger and she’ll be a dark, deadly presence in Sovereign City. I don’t want to give too many details yet but I can say that the story starts in late 1937… and it will run until Halloween 1940.

That’s right. There’s an end date involved and it’s one that will factor large in Gravedigger’s actions. See, she’s aware of this date and its significance. Beyond that, I don’t want to tell you too much but I promise it’ll be cool!

She has strong connections to Lazarus Gray, having crossed paths with him prior to her donning the Gravedigger identity. And she’s actually a sibling of one of his Assistance Unlimited aides, though that hero may not be aware of that fact at first!

Anyway, I hope to spring her on you guys soon (“soon” in publishing terms means early 2013). I approved her design by George Sellas last night and I’m about 5,000 words into her origin story now.

Fun days lie ahead!
