Hi everyone. Let’s take a look at the last year and what’s coming up next year.
During 2013, I serialized at this website my epic fantasy novel, Tickling Butterflies.
Tickling Butterflies – 128 fairy tales rolled into one.
The book follows King John, who was born with a prophecy of death over his head. King John struggles to save The Land of All Legends by finding out all its secrets. In doing so, he follows the fairy tales back to their source: the magical planet Earth.
Tickling Butterflies is made out of 128 separate fairy tales that together form one epic story.
In 2013, I finished work on The Indestructibles, an independent, underground science fiction web-series. The Indestructibles premiered in UtopiaFest 2013 as a short film.
You can see all 7 episodes at The Indestructibles website, here.
New Worlds Comics
In 2013 I started a comic book company called New Worlds Comics. New Worlds Comics should premiere by February, 2014. The plan is to create some of the best fantasy and science fiction around, in both story and art. Four different series are in the works. Here are some teaser covers from the first two series: Wynter, a dark SF story, and Goof, a superhero comedy.
Wynter, Issue #1
Goofiest superhero ever.
Wynter, Issue #2
Goof, Issue #2
Stories in Russian
Hatchling, which has already appeared in four languages (I think), was translated into Russian and won Best Translated Story category in the Today Is Tomorrow competition. This led to two more stories that have appeared in Russian and more on the way.
The online magazine, SF Signal, was kind enough to allow me to publish a trilogy of 3 humorous SF stories, masquerading as non-fiction articles, all having to do with a high-tech company called Digital Kingmakers.
Each of the posts was chosen by the magazine as one of the best posts of that month. And recently, 2 of the 3 articles appeared in SF Signal’s list of Top 25 Guest Posts of 2013.
Here are links to all 3 articles in order:
