Hey guys! I’ll be at Arlingcon this year. It’s a one-day event, family friendly and it’s free! I’ll be presenting on Saturday the 30th from 3:15 – 4:00 p.m. Details … Continue reading Arlingcon 2018 – June 30th – Japanese vs. American Horror Comics!
Hello all! We are already in March (holy hell!) And I am working toward finishing the last part of Vengeance (my latest audiobook) You can find the others here.
My past audiobooks are completely free so that all of you can sample my work. However, starting this year I’m going to have to start charging for them as each piece can take upwards of 8-24 hours to make, depending on the sound effects. I wish I could keep releasing them for free, but something has got to give! I’m about to start a section in my Patreon specifically for audiobooks.
I’ll be posting all my podcasts for free as per usual and this next episode we took a vote and decided that my When East Meets West podcast would cover Japanese vs. American horror films. As most of you know, I have a real affinity for the dark side. You’ll find it in all of my writing. Spring is in the air, which means I love to talk about the supernatural. hehe :3

Hell’s Gate is currently under revision and will have it all released together this year along with an art book. You can get the Kindle edition for free if you have Kindle unlimited. The first book (book 1) that I linked is 100% edited and done. Book 2 needs professional edits as I later discovered. Since I have a day job that I am currently only working part-time, I would like to finish this earlier than later so that I may continue to get more work out to all of you.
If you like my style and want more even if it’s just a dollar a month it helps! And, you’ll get it before anyone else.
I just recently opened up a story that will be included with Hell’s Gate and it’s a companion to the Hell’s Gate Series. The story of the Weaver and the Cowherd. You can see samples of it on my Patreon here.
Big things coming this year, as I further develop the company. Including our stream mini-series work (details to come later after we plan it all out) and of course more audiobooks, podcasts, and novels.
I’m only one person, and soon there will be more helpers but for now, it’s all me. That’s where all of you come in to help me in a big way.
With these funds, I can provide more content and have to do less of the backend work myself. For example, I currently do all of the social media, graphic design, illustration, marketing, on top of all of the content and writing/directing.
I don’t mind the work, but it is seriously dragging down my release dates. Thankfully, I am employing a few people this year that can help and getting our business proposal underway. I would love to finish out both Hell’s Gate and get my Sci-Fi novel released this year as well.
I don’t often like to post this because it seems like everyone is doing this that is an artist. With good reason, but it can get a little overwhelming for people to decide who to support. That’s why I offer so much of my work for free so that you can get a feel for my style, and hear the quality for yourself.
All that being said, thank you for taking the time to read this and hear me out. Any and all support goes directly to me and building my stories, illustrations, and writing to all of you. Thank you to all of my fellow supporters, artists, and a big hug to all the other struggling artists out there.
Take care and happy St. Patrick’s Day to all of you.
I’m so excited to be a part of this wonderful event where we celebrate women creators everywhere! You can find my updates and details on my panel here:
I will be speaking at a panel tomorrow morning at 10:20 – 11:20 a.m. on starting your own business and the finer details on how. Here is a link to the panel room:
This year we are working with Guinness world record on the largest gathering of female superheroes. Any gender can participate!
I will be finishing the final chapter of the short story Vengence this month along with a new podcast to kick off the spring. We took a vote on FB and Twitter for my next podcast and decided that everyone was in the mood for a chilly tale of East vs. West style horror films and how they differ. I usually do a few podcasts a year and they are super in-depth. See my past podcasts here. If you like audio stories and audiobooks, check out all of mine here. They are free for now, but I plan on making these into an entire collection for audiobooks on Audible.
If fantasy is more your thing, you can find all of my books on Amazon. I’m going to have an audiobook version up soon, however, I felt I wanted to combine all three books into one audiobook for you guys so it’s just easier and you don’t have to buy three separate audiobooks. Plus, if you’re anything like me, you usually wait until everything is out before purchasing it. It’s just nicer for your sanity.
Much love to all, and see you at tomorrow’s event. My events need to be updated for the year, but you will find them soon all laid out here and on my FB.
Happy Friday, All!

Today was my drawing for the contest winner. Lucky numbers 27 and 13 had it! See below video for more details on what is to come this week.
On Tuesday, February 14th, I will be releasing my podcast. It will be covering from the west:
Slenderman and NoEnd House
And from the East:
I’ll go into the story, and then muse over the urban legends and their roots. If you’re a fan of the creepy, like me, you won’t want to miss it! Since this week, I’m releasing my podcast on Tuesday, my normal Tuesday comic will be delayed by one week, but will be back on track next Tuesday, the 21st.
I called to a vote last week on which people would want to see, and at just 2 votes higher, the Manga-style comedy comic panel won for next Tuesday. I can’t wait to draw this, it was such a joy to hear from all of you. Thanks for all who voted and congrats on this month’s winner!
Monday’s Japanese Blog Recipe (2/13) – I originally set it for today, but completely spaced that I was doing the drawing today and had to delay it by one day. (sorry guys!)
