Social Media, Comics, etc.

Social Media, Comics, etc. published on

I haven’t been posting lately, and I know it’s been a terrible blow to the sanity of many people. Please accept my apologies, I’ve been trying to focus on Kong Tower, among other things. So here’s what I’m doing now.

I now have a tumblr dedicated to supporting this whole shitshow. Also and instagram, which is more just for the comic, assuming I can actually get the damn thing to function. The links to those should also be on the sidebar there, just below the feed of my tweets and next to the little Facebook and twitter buttons. Feel free to follow them. Or not. Free country and all that. Though I should note there’s an incentive, especially if you don’t already follow my twitter or Facebook page.

If you’ve been reading Kong Tower (and if not, shame on you!) then you may have noticed that under each blurb under each comic I’ve been adding a little button to encourage you to vote for the comic on Top WebComics dot com, yet another site I’ve been using with minimal success to promote myself. I’ve been trying to incentivize your voting by putting up the first fifty comics, which were originally in black and white, in FULL COLOR one at a time. Reactions have been mixed. So I thought I’d give you all a taste of what you’re missing. Moments after this post goes up, I will post the first 10 colorized comics (we’re currently on 12 on TWC) on each of those social media sites (assuming, again, that I can figure out how the hell instagram works). This pattern will continue, where each time I pass a ten comic mark on the colorized incentives, on the next first Tuesday of the month, I will post the previous ten on all my social media. Yeah, I’m confused too.

Also, from here on, I pledge to put out at least two actual posts on this blog per month. This is more or less double what I’ve ever managed. Expect me to slip up pretty quickly. (Also, yes, this one counts for June).

So yeah, that’s about it. Keep reading Kong Tower, maybe someday I’ll start another serial story, and uh…yeah. I never know how to finish th

This Blog Turns One

This Blog Turns One published on

Well, this is it. The milestone. I began this blog, this foray into being an internet writer one year ago today. This feels big. It feels good. Twelve whole months of screaming out into the void and I haven’t given up. Who wants to see how next year turns out?

It all started a year ago with the very first chapter of Live Prey, my attempt at an internet serial, a take on modern Vampire fiction that tries to merge it with the myths and legends that gave birth to the genre before it even was one. I’ve written nine chapters out of the ten I intended in the first year (sorry, those of you who may have been looking forward to it, I’ll get around to it eventually), and have a whole mini-Encyclopedia built up about the mythology just to help readers keep things straight.

Since that began I’ve also created posts venting my obsession with pop culture, about everything from scientific details in fantasy movies to the exact reasons why executive meddling ruined a famous movie to straight up opinions on upcoming nerd movies. Did I write enough posts in that time? Probably not. I could have regaled you all with my analyses of various pop-culture properties, I could have posted more flash fiction, I could have made more movie reviews like everyone does. But I didn’t. I was lazy. Sue me. You wouldn’t get any money.

And, lastly, in what is arguably my most ambitious project, I’ve started a Webcomic. The art isn’t great, but hey, what webcomic is in the beginning? And sure, it’s still coming into itself comedically. But it’s a labor of love, and though I don’t really know where it’s going, I look forward to seeing where it takes me as much as I desperately hope you all do.

I think what I’m saying with all this is… Read more of my stuff. And tell your friends about it. It’s all right there for the taking and it’s not going anywhere fast. Hey, one day I could be some famous novelist, or at least some mildly-respected-within-my-genre novelist. And when that happens, don’t you want to be able to say that you were reading my crap all the way back when I was some dipshit kid drawing bad parodies of DC characters? Don’t you want to be able to brag that you saw my genius early, and tried to get others in on the ground floor of this? I think you do. I think you might just be that smug in the future. Don’t waste the opportunity. Read on.

New Webcomic, Kong Tower

New Webcomic, Kong Tower published on

I’ve started a webcomic! It’s called Kong Tower and it parodies and otherwise makes fun of superheroes and the superhero genre. Two strips are out now, hopefully with more to come every Tuesday. Why Tuesday? I just don’t think Tuesdays have enough going for them.

You can submit ideas for strips! Just write them in the comments, DM me on Twitter, or contact my Facebook page, and if I think your strip idea is good and in keeping with the theme of Kong Tower, I’ll try to get around to making it!
