For Your Taste Buds Accordingly

Just before you think my artistic talents have managed to improve by about 5000% I'd like to mention that the above image was done by the appropriately named Epictones (AKA Eric Toner), who graciously created this rendition of Lisa Cummings from my recent short story submission.

You can find more of his art here, and here. Pay him a visit. The full image can be found here. Thanks again fella.

Lisa Cummings is a rather entusiatic Private Eye, in a world where nobody really knows what they do anymore. She cracks jokes about video games, animes and gets wicked drunk after a case.

A full, remastered version of the short story will be coming next month, and I'm dusting off a full length novel this will hopefully go somewhere someday.

Beyond all that, take this as an early seasons greetings, and as always, thanks for reading.

Too Much Too Young

So my performance at Worlds Biggest Liar this year did not land me in the top three, which was a little disappointing given that I felt my work this year was better than the last, where I came third.

While it would be remiss of me to disrespect the fine turns put on by the winners, I do have to say that this year's turnout was certainly a step down from what we had over the last two year, with only 7 entries as opposed to the usual 12 to 15. I feel that the way the selling of the tickets was handled might have had something to do with this, and I may explore my thoughts in depth in a more detailed article next month.

In the mean time I do plan more non-Biggest Liar based stand up in the future. Also, keep your eyes peeled, a short story should be coming before Christmas too.
