Finally. I can share some big updates on several projects:
1. I have four manga/comic projects in development with the following codenames: Vehemence, Eliam, Nebula and Fallen. At one time, I was preparing to do my own manga studio. But then Vehemence got a publisher. And then Covid-19 hit and that transformed the comics industry.
So the publisher is now working on creating what would essentially be the American equivalent of Shonen Jump, albeit with some modern twists and more pop-culture coverage. I don’t have full details yet, but all of my manga projects are tied to it. I also will be involved as a staff writer, conducting interviews and maybe writing articles. From what I gather at this point, it would involve work from indie creators all over the world. Hope to have more details soon.
2. I am in talks to join a very unique podcast. It’s a choose your own adventure storytelling series. I am super stoked about this. It has such a fun premise and comes from the team who produced the award nominated Strangers and Aliens podcast.
3. My novel, A Grim Awakening, is coming along really well. Little by little, each day. I intend to have it finished by the end of 2020. This does push Sugar Coated, Singularity, and other novel projects into next year.
4. Busy summer: school, Tableau workshop, Salesforce Admin workshop, SQL, Python, Advanced Excel, black belt test for Kenpo, and PI exam. Whew. I didn’t even mention guitar and getting back into the gym. One day at a time, gang. One day at a time.
So that about wraps up current news. I am super stoked about everything. I cannot wait to show you some art work, and reveal names and all the people I am working with. They are super cool. It would take something this awesome to return me to journalism like work (Infuze was 14 years ago). But this is special. Really special. More info to follow, so stay tuned.
