I wanted to announce a new series of blogs ahead. In addition to my fun little recipes and movie reviews I’d like to provide five character studies for my main characters! But first a little update! A lot of things have happened last week!
I spent all of last weekend drawing these five character sketches and I got started on the cover for TS:Restoration! It finally has a cohesive idea prepared. See below!
And as for the big news I teased on Instagram! Fire’s Hope finally has an editor! After a long stressful search, I finally found an editor and we’re going to get right to work! I still don’t have solid release dates down but I’m aiming for publishing FH by winter 2017-18. It’s a little later than I projected but it’s finally happening!
