Pfaffenthal Adventure

It’s the Easter holidays and so I thought I would experiment with some ideas, taken from the recent pictures composed within Pfaffenthal (Note: this is not the final proposed comic and nor is it the intended format of the proposed publication. However, it might whet your interest for what has been happening recently.)

Christmas Podcast

Snapshot_021

If you have read several of my eBooks, you might have noticed that I have developed a specific formatting style for many of my works. Most of my stories have a simple narrative thread but they are packed with numerous beautiful illustrations to accompany the text. However, you may have noticed that my last story (The Christmas Penny) deviated from this general trend. The reason for this change was that my last story was written solely for a steampunk podcast competition, due to be released in time for Christmas.

I am very pleased to announce that this story was successful in the competition and that it was selected (with three others) to form part of the podcast production. Incidentally, just by chance, all four stories were based around street urchin characters and so I understand that the podcast will have a strong steampunk urchin theme. If you have children, they may particularly relish this aspect!

The podcast is currently in the production stage and I understand that it is due for release in the few weeks. Of course, I shall be pleased to provide a link when it is finally available for download.

777 Challenge

I have recently read about the 777 Challenge from a fellow author, David Lee Summers.

In this challenge, you go to page seven of a work in progress, scroll down seven lines and then post the next seven sentences. Although my work is mainly graphical in nature and I rarely have more than two or three sentences on any page, here is my contribution from page seven (and onwards) of my latest eBook called “A Clean Sweep.”
