It's ready. Are you?

Are you thinking about buying my BRAND NEW 90 page book, Gone? Did you need a little incentive? How about a postcard with original art on it just for you? After you purchase the book, e-mail me and let me know where you want it sent. The book is $9.95 and can be purchased here: https://www.createspace.com/3505843 and at AMAZON.com

Got the proof!

It's a great looking book. I am in love with it. Hopefully you will like it too. Just one small problem to fix and it won't be long before you can buy it. I'll keep you updated.

Gone is almost ready for your money.

My proof copy is on its way as we speak! That means it should be just about a week and a half until you can order it. How exciting! Stay tuned for ordering info.

Time for a preview.

You may be hoping that you will get to read my new book for free (much like you did with Manley Days), but that's not going to happen! You will pay for this one! And I'm about to show you a little of what you will get for your (under $10) admission:

This is the only two page spread in the book that wasn't filled with spoilers. Enjoy and stick around for a publication date.

Working on Finishing Gone: A Paranormal Extraction Team Adventure.

I'm 1/6 of the way done inking. The pages are looking beautiful! When I finally get one done that isn't a massive spoiler I will post it here. Until then here is a promotional image (feel free to spread the word - or use it to create a pin-up that I can include in the book).

It's been a while.

Wow, August? That was soooo long ago. Well here is that update I promised back then. I still have 3 books for sale on Amazon (that you haven't bought, yet... yeah, I know you haven't - don't lie to me!) and I am about to start inking Gone: A Paranormal Extraction Team Adventure. It turned out to be exactly 60 pages (plus extras), I hope to finish by Christmas.

And here is my son Silas' (age 5) version of characters from P.E.T.:

And here is another sketch page from me:

The New Book Update

Over the weekend I took all my sketch ideas for the new book and just dove into the actual production of it. With the assistance of my 5 year old son I have penciled 10 pages. And today, I have designed the logo for my paranormal investigation team:

A preview should be coming soon.

"new book" UPDATE

Here are more sketches of characters from the new book. With this stack of sketches I actually came up with names, an outline of the story and the ambition to put it all together.

Look here soon for a "The Manleys Get Fit" update.

The beginning of the new book.

I have the first 10 pages of the "NEW BOOK" in my head. It's good stuff, very sad, very thrilling... Here is a first look at the characters that will make up the paranormal investigation team:

It's been awhile...

So, It's been since end of May and no updates? I've been super busy (easy excuse) and I know this site will really get going the closer I get to finishing the books. "Books", you say. I've started an all ages book that involves ghosts and werewolves and maybe even prehensile hair... Still early in it's development, more later. So, The Manleys get fit is still going well, a couple pages a month and I should be done early 2012 (just in time for the end of the world).

Now for the pitch:

All Pages So Far.

Okay, you guys took advantage of me, and I am not too happy about it. I've been posting all the pages I've done so far as a way for you to judge my progress and get a taste for the way the pages are looking. But, with the last post I realized that you could click on the image and then zoom in and read all the pages clearly! That is not what I wanted to happen... so as of now, I am making my file sizes smaller. Nothing in life is free people, you want to read this book, you will have to buy the book when it is finished!

All Pages So Far.

Just yesterday I took my page count to 10... and now today I am taking it all the way to 12! Amazing, two pages in one day! At this pace I might finish this book by next year!

All Pages So Far.

Three new pages since last time. I'm very excited about this project. I think it is going to connect to a lot of people that struggle with weight issues. And for those skinny people out there, maybe they will just think my drawings are pretty and the story is funny. See you next week.

All Pages So Far.

Another week another page. I'm keeping a glacial pace, but... I'm really not in that big of a hurry.

All Pages So Far.

Not much news on the comics front. Just keeping my glacial pace - two more pages done. Still working on getting my books in the local "cool" book store. Just need to take the time to get down there and get those books in there.

All Pages So Far.

From time to time I will post an image of all the pages I've done so far. I think it will be a fun way to gauge my progress without you actually being able to read the story for free.

Page Update

4 pages inked. That doesn't sound like much, but seeing as I have restarted this story 3 times and there are at least 7 pages that didn't cut the mustard it seems like more work has been put into it.

The First Page of the Next Project

This is the first page of The Manleys Get Fit. This page shows Jeff trying multiple times to get Alexis to agree to the purchase of a Wii entertainment system

Strips you have never seen

Here are three strips that are included in The Complete Manley Days that have never been published before.

Photo Phun

I just wanted to show you how freakin' awesome The Complete Manley Days looks:

The Complete Manley Days and other books available for purchase at Amazon.com

Manley Days: If It Weren't For Bad Luck.
$13 gets you 98 pages of some of the Manleys greatest adventures. This book covers the years 2007 & 2008. A great (cheap) introduction to Manley Days.

Manley Days: The First Two Years.
$16 gets you the first two years of Manley Days (thus the title, duh!) This collection has over 250 pages of comics, a good summer beach read.

The Complete Manley Days.
$25 gets you EVERYTHING! And I mean everything. This book has all the strips included in the other two books, plus never before published strips from 2009! Plus every strip that was never finished, and sketches, and a 24 page/24 hour comic featuring random stories about the Manleys. All total this is a 448 page collection, well worth the money.
