New Mortal Gods Art

Mortal Gods Art.

Back in March, I teased some excerpts of original artwork for upcoming stories. I’ve created new Mortal Gods artwork since then. And I’m teasing excerpts of these new pieces right now.

None of the pieces are necessarily finalized nor am I certain that I will use them. However, the artwork helps grow the Mortal Gods universe by providing some visuals for it.

I like this group of art better than the one I posted in March. Nothing against what I showed then; I just think I’ve made some improvements with what I am displaying now. For instance, there is more of a sense of action in this group of art. Also, there are greater differences between some of the pieces.

Hope you enjoy the sneak peeks.

Lots of detail and action in this.

Ended up much better than I thought it would when I started.

Probably will not use the blurred face in the final image.
But it is an interesting look.

Original Artwork for the Fiction of Liberate Liberty: What It Is and What It Can Be

Prose stories do not require artwork. However, prose stories struggle to find an audience without it. And what good is a story if no one is reading it? So here is the latest on the forthcoming artwork for the forthcoming tales from Liberate Liberty—here is what it will be as of now and here is what it can be if enough people support the stories.
I commissioned original artwork for both Mortal Gods: Ignition and Winning through Losing. The total of four separate commissions cost a significant amount of money. But it was worth it for those books. I’d like to commission more artwork for forthcoming stories (more of which I will post about this week—including how the first story will begin its serial publication this week or the next) but I need to make sure there is the demand for it.
So as of right now I’m creating the artwork for my latest work. I’m teasing excerpts of some of it above and in the images below. Some of what you see now might be different in its final form. And some of …

The Stought Brothers – Serialized Young Adult Series Coming Soon

Another story I am working on completing is the first story for a potential young adult series called, The Stought Brothers. I will publish the story in its entirety as a serialized story and for free at BarbWire.

I will judge how people respond to it and if it does well enough I may be able to proceed with the series, publishing the next book for sale as an eBook.

The logo you see to the right is the working logo for The Stought Brothers. If it proceeds as a series, then there probably would be an entirely new design along with cover art for the book.

Here is the general outline for The Stought Brothers.

Two brothers, 16- and 18-years old (a sophomore and a senior in high school), travel the world with their parents. Their father is a highly skilled doctor specializing in brain surgery, and he travels the world under the sponsorship of his church so he can provide life-saving operations across the globe. He takes his family with him wherever he travels. During their travels, the bro…

Mortal Gods: “HVT”: Reality Intertwined with Fiction

Mortal Gods: “HVT” is nearing its conclusion. And as it does, I’ve collected a few news items that somehow relate to at least one part of the story.
“HVT” is not about any real-life event or organization (past, present, or in the future), but it does include elements of reality and it presents a unique solution to a real-life challenge within the confines of the fictional Mortal Gods universe. Read the story to find out more. And as you do, reference the following news items to help you think about the ideas and plot the story presents.
