...Because I think your judgement will be "HOLY DAMN!"




Yeah, time for another incredibly sporadic, random Life Update, to say that the contest for the cover for Chameleon Moon, Book 1; 2nd Edition is over, winner chosen, book actually done and published, looks ridiculously amazing ...and sold more copies in its first month (20 days rather, since it was published on Oct. 11th) than the first edition did in a year, so... Yeah, Holy Damn.

And the 2nd Edition is just... better than the first. I'm so happy with it in every way. The interior design too, and the actual writing changes - of which there are Several, characters are given more detail and connections to one another, the world is expanded, questions answered and more raised, I'm just writing more confidently and happily than I've ever been.

And now I'm getting back to doing Actual Art - in the form of my own book covers too!



This prequel short story, "Runtime?"
Mine. That's also a super fun one, which I highly recommend picking up for 99 cents if you feel like trying the Chameleon Moon 2nd Edition. It intro's a few new characters and worldbuilding concepts... and is just really fun/banter-filled/action-y. And, I've been told, mess with your emotions in a borderline-sadistic way. (But because it's me, the ending won't ruin your life completely. In a bad way at least.)



And the upcoming anthology of 7 short stories, "Life Within Parole, Volume 1" was an amazingly fun collaboration with JillianLambertArt! Her wonderful ink, my colors. Felt so freaking good. :heart: We must do this again.

So I'll be... actually uploading more art. And being around, hopefully! I'm just getting stuff done, making art, writing, and living. Wow. Stuff's good, guys. Thank you for being here. It means a lot.

A Group Shot Of The Infamous CyborJ Syndicate

A group shot of the infamous CyborJ Syndicate, vanquishers of cyber-evil and bastions of truth, justice and defending this series of tubes we call home from any who would deprive us of our . This is all of them. So, just the one Chaotic Good nerd-rogue then, fighting the good fight and poking out Eye in the Sky with the Keyboard of Justice. And also Seven, the scribbly-looking amazing robot cat in the lower right. 

Translation:
This is Jay. He's one of the new Chameleon Moon, 2nd Edition characters. Our setting, Parole, is a city full of people with freaky super-abilities, and it's been quarantined over a lake of fire and everybody inside left to die. Okay, this sucks. But then the evil bastards called Eye in the Sky shut down the freaking internet. THAT'S JUST THE LAST STRAW. He's not gonna take it. No! He ain't gonna take it!

If you haven’t read Runtime, I suggest you read Runtime, the short-story prequel to Chameleon Moon. Enter this one-man shadow network, who is just so good and so fast and knows all the shit, every bit of it, he could not possibly be one person, he has to be an army, a whole Syndicate. (He does not dispute this rumor. It helps keep his identity secret.) He brought back our precious series of tubes, and keeps it free and safe... without a single superpower. However, he does have a sentient robot cat. She helps.

(Her name is Seven. Seven-Of-Nine-Tails. She can also act as a wi-fi hotspot. Get on it, reality. Give me amazing, internet-boosting, signal-masking, sonic-purring robo-kittens. It’s the 21st century, this absence is getting ridiculous.)

Lizard Is Distinctly Nervous
Wow. It's some Actual Art. Endtimes upon us. (This would be one of the Main Dudes in that book I keep rambling about, Chameleon Moon, which has recently been re-released, all better/harder/faster/stronger.) Regan is pretty fun to draw, and so is his frill.

FIRSTLY: Hey guys! I know I haven't been around forever, but I am indeed Alive. And today I've got a pretty big announcement/project/Art Thing going on that you might be interested in. Yes, on this, an art website, where I used to basically live, and keep meaning to be more active on. And I still mean to. But it has been Ye Olde Wilde Ride, and... you might see why in a bit.

So you might remember I wrote a book a while back.
And it honestly did a lot better than I even expected, I met some amazing people, and the experience was basically awesome - until, like many small/indie presses this year, my publisher closed. But I/Chameleon Moon aren't going anywhere - the rights are mine again, and it was very well-received/doing well at the time. Honestly, I'm feeling pretty good. Super excited. I have a lot more to do, and the story needs to continue. So in October, I'm re-releasing Book One as a second edition. November, I've got a crapton of short stories, and December... Book Two. (Which was like 98% done when my publisher closed. All it needed was a cover. And speaking of... That's up next for the relaunch of Book One.)

And I could do my own covers - it'd be a push to get everything ready in October with my Health Crap, but my art is up to it, and it'd save a buttload of cash, which is always great. It'd be the smart thing, right?

But for real, the one thing that's made everything worth it/amazing is community. (Damn, I'm sappy. You missed it. Or maybe not, but the love is real anyway.) And even if I'm not here as much as I'd like to be... damn, dA is still so important. I don't even really have... words. <3 And this is part community celebration too (Hence the 'Giveaway, Do Literally Anything/ALL Entrants Get Free Story' part).

So how about...

Here are some character ref examples! Because I feel like showing them off and having them on my blog.
