[5/09/13] It's been a while, eh? I've got lots of stuff to update you with, though. First, I've been busy working on a new illustrative style, sort of leaning towards a manga edge. Here's the first illustration:
It's based on a scene from Chapter 13 of Shadows of Penumbra, The Repository, where Diane wonders if she's still human when she finds she has no blood in Penumbra!
Also, here's a preview of the bookmarks that will be featured in a summer giveaway! I'm not sure of the when or where yet, but I hope to figure it out soon.
Finally, the cover for book 2 is complete! Although I've yet to officially release it, the date should show up soon. Keep an eye out!
[3/23/13] I've started a new author's blog exclusive to author-related content on Blogger. The blog will have the latest updates on my writing and the series, along with book and movie reviews. I will still continue to run my more social blog, Story Addict, which will be updated more frequently. I have also put the Apocalypse Exalted Facebook page on hiatus since it's one too many platforms for me to juggle at the moment. Right now, blogging, Twitter, and Tumblr will be my main platforms.
[2/25/13] I'm currently working on "Her Pride," a short 1st POV retelling of Shadows of Penumbra from Diane's perspective of how she became an Anarchist. You can find bits of the in-progress on my Tumblr account. I've also been inspired to try a bit of typography and play with bits from the short. The typography will be uploaded to Tumblr and also Facebook. Oh, and, can't forget the new portrait of Diane!
[2/15/13] Added a short bit about why I wrote this series on the Story & Characters page.
[2/14/13] I've got a new portrait of Leo here. I've also started a 1st POV series, told from Diane's perspective, that I will post in snippets on my Tumblr account. Here are the first few scenes, in chronological order: Scene 01 | Scene 02 | Scene 03 | Scene 04
[2/4/13] Here's to another character portrait. This time, Rina!
[1/29/13] I've gone and drawn another portrait, this time of Caelan. There's two versions, one I intended and one that was ... sort of an accident, but I still think it's cool, so I kept it. The second one is the "Penumbra" version. Enjoy!
[1/24/13] To match the new theme of the website, I've changed my illustration style a bit to portraits. Here's a look at a portrait of Andy, a secondary character from SHADOWS OF PENUMBRA.
[1/15/13] As you can see, some pretty big changes have occurred all over the site. I felt like this layout would suit the series better, and it was time for an update as well. Hope you like!
[1/13/13] Here's a first look at the graphic novel version of Shadows of Penubra! Although the entire novel will not be converted to graphic format, I may be illustrating select scenes from some of the chapters.
[1/12/13] Get a first look at the new trailer for Shadows of Penumbra!
[12/31/12] The last illustration of year 2012 is now uploaded to the gallery! Happy 2013!
[12/28/12] You may have noticed the snazzy new ad on this page. I'm testing it out before I run it across a few other sites.
[12/13/12] A new illustration has been added to the gallery!
[12/12/12] Shadows of Penumbra is now available on Amazon in paperback and ebook format! Go grab your copy!
[12/7/12] It's here! You can now buy the paperback and/or ebook versions of SHADOWS OF PENUMBRA! Amazon editions will be coming later this week. Happy reading!
[12/2/12] It's almost time for the release of Shadows of Penumbra! There's a countdown going on Tumblr and Facebook. This Friday the ebook will be released for a promotional $0.99 limited-time price. The paperback will be priced at $10.99. It will be available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble. See you then!
