Look What I Made!

No long update from me today. (Yet another sign of the Apocalypse? I think so!) Just wanted to share something with my favorite blog followers. (All of you!)

May I present the super-secret-sneak-preview of the trailer for my upcoming novelette, Blood Fugue:



What do you think? Now before you rip it apart, understand that I made this with my very own hands, eyes, and ears--so think of me as your five year old child, holding a very delicate, homemade craft in my wee hands. My eyes are begging for your approval, a tear is pooling just underneath the surface...

I'm just joshing! (About taking it easy on me ... I really did do the illustrations and music, though.) I'm a big boy, I can take the heat. And even if it isn't awesome, I had an absolute blast making it. Kind of another thing off my bucket list, you know?

Anyway, it isn't officially listed on YouTube just yet. That comes in a couple of days. I mostly wanted to share it with you all first. You've done so much to support this blog (and me!) over the years, and well, I kind of think of you as my besties. You know, my peeps. My homies. My sisters from another mister. My bro-bunch. My pack...

Oh yeah, did I mention a big freaking contest/blogfest I'm about to launch to celebrate the release of Blood Fugue? That's happening this week. Stay tuned!

Hope you're all doing impossibly great, and talk to you again very soon. :-D

  1. I am not a trailer-lover. (take that anyway you want) But seriously, this was terrific.

    The blurb was perfect, the visuals transitioned well, and you hooked me right away with "A Two Dogs Production". Even my dogs came to see what all the barking was about.

    Well done!

  4. Very cool, but are you kind of giving away the ending? I love the music and the way it crescendos. Awesome. Did you draw all of that?

    1. I did some thinking on it, and I believe it only really makes sense once you've read the story. :-) Yes, those are all my doodles.

    1. Yes, the hair, it's all about the hair with that one. :-D Did you go see Neil Gaiman? I won't judge if you didn't... actually I will, please say you saw him? He was talking about it on Twitter today!

  13. I couldn't listen to the music because I'm at work, but I did watch the video and it looks awesome! Your art work is fantastic. It was like some cool anime movie. :)

    1. Thanks Cherie! I sketched all of the drawings with pencil and paper, then scanned them into the computer. Then I used a painting program to add color and polish. I'm pretty new to using the computer stuff, and did my best to make it look fancy. :-) Kind of an exciting new way for me to draw and create!

  18. Well that rocked! I loved it, especially knowing you did the art work. I'll be honest and say I wasn't sure about the music to start with, but when the tempo picked up I thought it was perfect.
