Stowaway Backstory Art – Molly’s Island -
August 21st, 2015
Some backstory art from the Stowaway series. I like to visualize stories that go into multiple chapters, and sometimes I get… distracted. I have at least one more map I’m working on for this series, though there will probably need to be more. I love doing maps. Cartography uses so many different aspects of graphic design to create clarity and solidify spacial concepts. That I can have so much fun making something that helps to visually bring a story into reality – that’s just icing on the cake.
Stowaway – Chapter 11 -
August 11th, 2015
Chapter 11 added. Just a quick update.
Stowaway – Chapter 10 -
August 6th, 2015
Chapter 10 added. I am currently up to chapter 15 locally, so there will be more posts in the near future. I also have some art for this series, which will go up at the appropriate time. Not really sexy stuff (yet), but more for fun and character development. I realize this tale is pretty far off from my normal fare, but occasionally doing something out of character is a good thing.

This is the first of a number of updates I plan to make in the coming weeks. Yet another colony story, pretty much just playing with a creature concept I was interested in. [X] [Plant] [Colony] Enjoy!

Chapter 9 added. The plot thickens…
New Section – Reading Room! -
October 10th, 2014
I don’t know why I have been putting this off for so long, but I finally went ahead and made this section live. The Reading Room is where you will find ebook versions of some of my works. Right now, I have a single entry, but it covers most (if not all) of my completed shorts. Sunday Afternoon Quickies has been sitting in various forms on my computer for the better part of a decade, slowly acquiring new additions. It’s my very first foray into ebook publishing, so please forgive me if there are errors, etc. You would think outputting an ebook would be an easy thing. Don’t be fooled. It’s easy to do poorly, not so easy to do right. For now, I have a simple placeholder cover. I’m working on an actual graphic, but getting where I want it is proving… most frustrating. As I mention in the section itself, I may edit or add to these works, and if I do, I will try to release them as a new file with an updated version number in the title. I’ve found that most readers won’t actually update if you don’t change the file name. Go figure. Also, I am putting these out there in epub format, which is readable by most, and is readily converted since the text is completely flowable (unlike a pdf). If you are interested in the process and problems (and solutions!) I have had in creating ebooks, let me know. Maybe there’s a tutorial in there somewhere. Enjoy!

New Story – Stowaway -
August 31st, 2014
I’ve always loved pirates (who doesn’t?), and have wanted to apply my certain, er, tastes – to such a tale for ages. Unfortunately, it’s rather difficult to step into a new genre cold, especially when it’s so easy to look silly doing so. There’s no shortage of pirate books and movies, and most of them don’t really capture what it was like to live for months at a time on a ship with extremely loose command structure and even worse hygiene. Sometimes realism doesn’t make a very good backdrop for sexy encounters. None the less, I wanted to do something with SOME degree of maritime authenticity, so I settled on a blend. Why “Stowaway”? Because that’s how I started it, and until I can come up with a better title, Stowaway it is. Titles are HARD. Here are chapters 1-4. I’ve written up to chapter 9, so there will be more updates in the near future.
