Re: this coffee tastes astounding!

Good for you! I probably have to undergo a few more before we figure out what's going on, and I'm being made to take time off of my day job until we do and get this under control. The upside is that I get to spend more time writing. I've finished the script for issue 1 of The Real Women of the US Mi...

Re: Tiger on the Storm

Well the drawback to trying to crowdfund a project like what I've been trying to do on Indiegogo, is that if it doesn't catch on, I end up largely self-funding the project. And the drawback to largely self-funding Tiger on the Storm when I make my living with freelance work and workers' comp checks ...

Re: Tiger on the Storm

As the drive to raise funds continues for Tiger on the Storm , I received news that another book for which I'd done a bit of writing and PirateKurt did a bit of art a while back will finally go to print- when publisher Heroes Fallen Studios gets the funding together. That's right. The second volume ...

Re: Tiger on the Storm

Due to funds trickling in a bit too slowly, I've had to restructure how Tiger on the Storm will be released. It will come out as a three issue mini, then later be released as a hardbound trade. The good news is that I've brought our own PirateKurt on board to do interior pencils and inks! Dan Monroe...

Re: Tiger on the Storm

We're just going to have to imagine a small string orchestra backing this statement, since I can't afford a real one. We've got seventeen days left in the Indiegogo campaign for Tiger on the Storm. While fans at Salt Lake Comic Con have been generous with cash donations, I worry about being stuck co...

Re: Tiger on the Storm

It only seems quicker paced because I've done similar things before. The more experience you get, the easier it is to figure out who works with you best and how to motivate them to work on your project. Of course the trick is to get experience as a published comic book writer first, and I have to ad...

Of course we can't have an Indiegogo campaign for Tiger on the Storm without offering a lot of related perks- and more! I've written more about it here. https://valeriefinnigan.wordpress.com/2 ... ng-perk-y/

Tiger on the Storm

I seem to have a knack for getting roped into writing military comics. First there was Untold Stories from Iraq and Afghanistan, for which I volunteered because of my friends off fighting the war. I also pushed to do a project on the Korean War because my work in elder care put me in regular contact...

This has been going on for about a month. I try to get to sleep (which is not very easy for me), or I've managed to get something resembling a good night's sleep, and suddenly, I hear the crash of objects being thrown, the thump of blows to flesh, crying, and most notably, one of my neighbors- who l...

Re: this coffee tastes like ass

"Woo surgery?" sounds about right. I can't say I've exactly got bad news, as the state finally decided my doctor and I were right, and I've got my surgery scheduled. Now I just have to wait in pain the rest of the week until Monday, when I go in for pins and screws in my hip, then spend half the sum...

Last cortizone shot failed. I now get to wait in pain for the state to admit what my doctor and I already know, that I'm going to need the SI joint fused and some additional work done on my hip.

Re: this coffee tastes like ass

Today I finally got a talk to a doctor, and he informed me that they had been unable to find any organic causes for her condition, ruling out any kind of stroke. Instead she appears to be suffering from an acute psychosis, and that they were unable to treat her for that, and also could no longer le...
