Tuesday Things

Shadowman-1-Valiant-2012-BHello, folks!

As some of you know (if you follow me on Twitter), I’m currently working on a story for Kindle Worlds — the officially licensed program that allows you to write stories set in some pre-existing universes (or “worlds”). As a longtime fan of Valiant Comics, I decided to dabble in the Kindle Worlds stuff with one of those characters. I chose Shadowman because not only do I really like the character but he’s the closest to what I write on a regular basis. I’m over 7,000 words into this short story and I hope to have it up and for sale in about a week or so – I’d love to have it up even sooner but I have a busy life in the “real world” this week. Still, it will be fun to see if there’s anybody reading/buying these things… the terms of the Kindle Worlds program are that they’re ONLY available as eBooks so you’ll need to fire up the Kindle to give it a looking over.

I will say that I hesitated to do one of these things mainly because I thought I should hold on to my ideas for one of my own stories… but then I figured that maybe this would expose my work to new readers and it’s always good to take a chance on that. If it fails to get me any new followers, the worst thing that happened was that I spent a few weeks writing about a character that I like anyway.

To celebrate my new story, I’m using a cool piece of Shadowman artwork on the site today. Enjoy!

Tom Smith, longtime Marvel Comics’ colorist, is currently working on the Chris Batista cover that I posted yesterday. The crossover novel still needs a title — if you have one you’d like to suggest based upon the art you’ve seen, feel free to pass it along. I’ll give you a “thanks” in the book itself if I choose to use it.

I’ve been talking to a prominent New Pulp author about doing a guest blog on the site… he’s raised some interesting issues in recent months on his Facebook page and I think they’re worth exploring here. I’m sure that many people may not agree with all his points but I think it’s a discussion we all need to have as pulp fans — how’s that for teasing you, eh? I love doing that.

See you guys tomorrow!

  1. Don’t forget that non-Kindle owners can still read the story via the Amazon Cloud Reader, or one of the various Kindle reading Apps that you can download for free from Amazon, which allow you to read them on your computer, tablet, or phone.
