I've said for some time that comics needs more female creators.  Happy to see these folks are doing something about that.  Emet comics is rolling out a bunch of new comics this month.

Now there's some true "Wizardly" wisdom. Click the link... enjoy the discussion. Perhaps you'll find a question or two that you can collect along the way. I certainly did. Thanks for posting this, Duncan!

WHITE KNIGHT

Bracken MacLeod's second published book, White Knight, confirms that the brilliance of his first novel, , was no fluke.   It's got a headlong, nonstop pace, a grim noir atmosphere, and tightly drawn characters who step off the page and grab you by the throat.   It's a short work - a novella or novelette (I've never been sure which term is correct, or what the difference might be) - if it were longer, I'd have to say it's not a book to start if you have to get up for work in the morning, because once you pick it up, you won't put it down until you're done.

My first novel, DARKWALKER,is finally out, and available on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/dp/1939056047/

One of my all-time favorite authors, Charles de Lint, was kind enough to provide us with a cover quote:

"I loved this book from the moment I met Wolf. It's got high-stakes action and great characters without sacrificing any of its wonderful mythic resonance. What's not to like?"

Wow. Thanks so much, Charles!

More art going up. Took one of the rejected sketches for "Bleeding Hearts" and finished it, just because I liked it:

The interview is shorter and less in-depth than I had hoped, but still interesting.  Funny, turns out toward the end they touch on the same points about questions and answers as that Mused comic I posted a few days ago.
David Lynch can be a tough interview -- check out my attempt back in 2001. Patti Smith does a bit better in this joint interview on the BBC2 Newnight's

THE GLASS

Catching up on some signal boost I've been meaning to get to...
Angels and demons and con artists, oh, my.

In the interest of full disclosure, I should mention that I created the cover for Stuart Sharp's The Glass. I try to read all the books I do covers for, and admittedly sometimes that's a chore, but this one was pure pleasure. Not a big surprise, as I enjoyed his earlier book, Court of Dreams, which was published by Pink Narcissus.

The Glass is an urban fantasy in a somewhat lighter vein, reminiscent of the works of Tom Holt, Christopher Moore, or Charles Stross' "Laundry Files" series.  Despite the light tone, however, there's some pretty serious violence and mayhem along the way.  Highly recommended.

So my friend John Dixon was fortunate enough to have the CBS TV series "Intelligence" based on his book "Phoenix Island."  Way to go, John.  I managed to miss the premiere, but caught up with it online (you can catch the pilot at the link below).  Based on the pilot, it looks to be a good series - which is pretty unusual, IMO, for a regular network series.   Second episode plays tonight at 10/9c.

RIP Elmore Leonard.  Like Stephen King, Leonard was a great proponent of the "transparent prose" school, and a "pantser" as opposed to a "planner" (he never outlined his books).  His summation of his "Ten Rules for Writing":  "If it sounds like writing, rewrite it."   

My own favorite rule is No. 10: "Leave out the parts readers skip."

Story
Introduction
A writer, painter, sculptor, and digital artist, I'm best known to print comics fans for work on Neil Gaiman's Sandman, and my graphic novel adaptation of Anne Rice's The Witching Hour.  My paintings and cover designs have appeared on science fiction and horror books by authors like Fred Saberhagen, Graham Masterton, Les Daniels, and Robert E. Howard.  I've illustrated magazines, book covers and movie posters like Nightmare on Elm Street & Blademaster, and theatrical billboards for the Pittsburgh Public Theatre, Lamb's Theatre, and internationally reknowned magician Jeff McBride. The Who, Phil Collins, Eric Clapton, Def Leppard, and many other rock groups have used my designs on their tour T-Shirts.

I'm also a professional maskmaker - I create hand-sculpted leather masks, and have won a few awards with them.  Mask clients have included the aforementioned Jeff McBride (known for using masks in his magic performances), Wes Craven, the Smithsonian, The Big Apple Circus, and assorted small theater companies and independent films.
Bragging rights
These days, I'm focused on my writing. I've had a few short stories published, and have four novels making the rounds of publishers and agents. I've been getting some very nice personalized rejections, explaining why I've been turned down. To those who don't know the publishing business, this will sound like nothing to boast about, but other aspiring authors will get it.
