Very excited to announce the debut of my latest book, a comic strip collection with my partner in crime, artist Tim Levins. Designed by artist Christina Young (aka my wife). Available on Amazon now. Details on our upcoming book launch here.
This is a poster/teaser designed for my last comic strip collaboration with Tim Levins, called Built to Last. Here’s the story of how it came about:
When we sent out our strip Then Comes Marriage to the six or seven major syndicates, we had an amazing response. We had two development type offers and one request to see more strips. This beat all the form letters and the one or two encouraging handwritten comments we got in reply to Rivertown News hands down. We were ecstatic.
How far would you go to make your dreams come true?
Watson Sinclair has only been in New York for a couple of hours and already he’s had a small accident in his car involving some distracting cleavage and an inconveniently-placed fruit stand. His best friend JC Dubois is a few blocks away kidnapping the editor of the Royal Features Syndicate. Watson has to pick them up and get back across the Canadian border safely with their prisoner. It didn’t have to be this way.
My latest novel “The Launch” is ostensibly about two characters with a great love of comics, pursuing their dream to become professional comics artists. They go to great lengths (think cross-border kidnapping) to achieve this goal, which may leave some readers scratching their heads and thinking, what could make someone so passionate about comics?
Very excited to announce my novels were honored in two categories in the recent Indie Book Awards put on by Discover Indie Writers. More details available on their tumblr account here. Big thanks to DIW for their recognition of my work.
Thanks to everyone who kept up with my musings this past year or read one of my books. It is always appreciated. More to come in 2016. Enjoy the aurora borealis tonight, Canadians!
Here is a book I loved with a subtitle that I hate: “Writers on Literature and the Literary Life.” That sounds boring. It’s not even about that. But what it actually is, writers and famous people telling The New York Times Book Review about what books they’re reading, all time faves, and childhood reading habits, was fascinating. In fact, I was inspired to use their list of questions to complete my own By the Book Interview. Here it is.
