A New Comic II/And in other news . . .

So, here we are once again. And so soon. Well, you know how you get something new and you want to use it right away? And when you start using it, you keep using it frequently for a while? That's what it is with me and that new comic-making app I got. Once again, a character from the Ben and Co. novel series will be introduced. These comics are meant to be more humorous than the novels they're based on. They are also just for fun so don't expect any really good effort or variety. (I'm too cheap to buy more variety like different kind clothes for the characters, anyway.)

Also, in other news, I'm still working on the second Paladin Academy novel. I mostly have an idea of where I want the story to lead, but it can be a struggle trying to think of a way to lead to the end point. I'll try to finish the next chapter as soon as possible. All these comics about Ben and Co. makes me want to hurry up and start on their next adventure.

Anyway, happy reading!

A Comic

Hey, so I recently got this program where even people terrible at drawing (like myself! I am extremely horrible!) can make decent manga-style comics. I know that just about almost everyone in the world knows what manga is by now, but I'll explain again anyway. Basically, manga are Japanese-style comics. All over the world, there are fans of Japanese-style cartoons, animation, games, etc. I'm one of them. As such, I always wanted to try making my own. Here's a four-panel strip I made to introduce a character from my Ben and Co. novel series. The program I used is called ComiPo! If I ever feel like it, I might make more based on the stories I'm writing.
Enjoy, and happy reading!

Slow Progress

Hey, followers of my blog. It's been a long, long while since I last posted here. Well, let's get you all up to speed about how my writing has been going so far. There's not much to tell, really. I still try to get one chapter a done per week. BUT! Unfortunately, things have been getting really busy for me, what with my studies for a Masters degree and all. Because of that, things have been going slow with my writing. Hair-pulling frustration-inducing slow. I'll still try to get as much chapters out as I possibly can, and as fast as I can. At the moment, a lot of my works were put in hiatus. Right now, I'm on the second book for the PALADIN ACADEMY series. I'm not even halfway through that. But once I'm done, I'm planning on finally getting to the second book of my SHADOW SLAYERS trilogy.

There are also the books that I have put on hiatus for probably a year now. I have not made any progress at all in that time with them, but I do hope to get to them eventually. I just hope that I can finish the final book of the SILVERWEST MANOR trilogy before the final book of the other series that I'm working on. The way it's going now, that'll probably happen.

Well, that's all I have to say for now. Happy reading, everybody!
