Work continues on the first short story that will run in Lazarus Gray Volume Five — writing about an air battle over the streets of Sovereign, with a deadly zeppelin attempting to lay waste to 6196 Robeson Avenue (the home of Assistance Unlimited). Great, pulpy fun.
Got an idea for the first chapter of Gravedigger Volume Two this weekend and I might take some time today to jot down some notes about that one, lest I forget. I think it’s a strong opening and shouldn’t go to waste. Then it’s back to Lazarus until I finish off the current story.
Got a little bit of feedback from my comments yesterday about expanding beyond the New Pulp label and whether that’s a good or bad thing. The consensus seems to be that it could be both, lol. Nobody really seemed to have a comment on the interior art question — I love seeing George Sellas & Will Meugniot doing images of my characters but maybe this is something that most readers just don’t care about? I know that some people enjoy seeing the pictures but given that my past Pro Se releases haven’t had the art included, a lot of people aren’t seeing them anyway… So maybe folks wouldn’t complain if they weren’t in the print versions?
Of course, I do know of at least two readers who buy the Kindle versions and then get the print for the images… so maybe I should keep encouraging them to get both? LOL
Pulp Ark 2013 took place this past weekend and from all accounts, it was a big success. Wish I could have been there — maybe 2014 will see me back in the great state of Arkansas. Fingers crossed.
Remember — this Saturday I’ll be at Avalon Comics in Macon, Georgia for Free Comic Book Day! I expect to be there from 11 am to around 2 pm. I’d love to see you in person!
