The Olympia Heights Comic: An Update

The Olympia Heights Comic: An Update

 

The Olympia Heights comic did not fund on Kickstarter, but the fact that the average pledge was almost fifty dollars means that the people I did reach really wanted to see this happen. The failure to fund wasn’t so much a failure of the idea as a problem with reaching the right audience. I love novels and comics, so it was my own hubris in thinking that everyone who loves novels must love comics, too. It’s going to take a lot of work to build that comic audience, and having a comic is kind of an essential part (otherwise what am I promoting?)

So Sam Albro and I have come to an agreement to make this comic happen anyway. It’s going to change some things about our initial plan, but after rescripting and discussing this with friends and family, I actually think the new plan will produce a better result.

So watch the video below to hear about the plan.

Here are the links mentioned:

I’m working hard on a few projects at the moment. One is a short story for a submission call. The second is the final edits of Royer Goldhawk part two. The third is preliminary planning for my next novel series. The fourth is the Olympia Heights comic spinoff.

Olympia Heights Comic?

I’ve been teasing about it here and there with character designs and stream-of-consciousness ramblings about canons of mythology. The script is outlined and being written right now. If I get my way, there will be 16 comics total (roughly 3200 pages of Olympia Heights awesomeness). But I need to pay for art.

In October I’ll be launching a Kickstarter to pay my artist for the first 200-page volume. That Kickstarter campaign will be your chance to grab exclusive shirts, posters, buttons, and cover designs. If you think that might at all be something you’d be interested in backing or at least sharing to your friends, I’d appreciate if you sign-up for an email notification when it goes live. I’ll be working my butt off at events all summer to build this list so the project can be a success. I just hope you’ll help out in whatever way you can.

Cover Reveal: Mars 01

mars01Mars01smWhen mars 01 is bombarded by panicked transmissions from Jupiter, the United Terran Nations begin to prepare for war. The enemy should be months away by the fastest known means of interplanetary travel, but should and known don’t apply when these strange creatures don’t appear on video feeds and can survive unarmored in the void of space.

The challenge for the brave men and women of Mars 01 is to get the nations of the UTN to stop posturing and bickering long enough to save the human race from an impending invasion. As Captain Sara Moore fights to defend her crew from annihilation, it becomes increasingly clear that the people of Mars are just a pawn in a much bigger game.

 

You can sign up to receive an email when Mars 01 is available for sale here. ARC copies will be available at the Alabama Phoenix Festival May 30-June1.

I’ll have more art to show you in the upcoming days, and the details on how you can get your hands on an exclusive, signed Olympia Heights poster.

Until then, don’t text and drive! (Sorry, I’m teaching high school, it’s what came to mind for parting words.)
