I am super-excited today. Well, this week actually… You see, it’s official. Halloween decorations are JUST starting to crawl out of the woodwork and make their way into the public eye. Sure, some folks like Christmas, but Halloween is my favorite holiday. I have always loved the atmospheric nature of Fall as it slides into Winter. The shadows, cobwebs (provided a spider doesn’t jump out at me…), pumpkins, love, love, love…
This year, owls are everywhere as the primary theme. It’s also the twentieth anniversary of Nightmare Before Christmas, too! I wound up picking up this light-up cup at Walgreen’s of all places.
Apple crumble, coffin-shaped cookies, KAH tequila (which comes in a sugar skull-painted bottle), ravens, and jack-o’-lanterns… I love it all. Hee. Finally decided on a costume; I’m going to go with a modernized rockabilly outfit.
Don’t really have anything to whine or complain about. Things are going really well and it’s just a matter of buckling down. Not having a ton of travel has been great, because it’s allowed me to settle into the season and concentrating muchly; I know I also owe a folks a progress report that’ll happen sometime next week.
The big news on the release front right now is that my new comic, Last
Man Zombie Standing, will be available in print. The publisher is debuting a limited edition anthology with all the digital comics in the UNFASHIONED CREATURES anthology; there will also be a standard version. Mine will be in both! I’ll post about pre-orders and the like when they’re available in October.
Let’s see… What else? Well, I decided to turn off comments on the blog and am pulling back on how/when/where I’m connected. It’s just gotten to be too much to manage with everything else that I’ve got going on. I’m keeping up with the chatter for anything related to work, sure, but outside of that? Some, but less. The politics, the latest kerfluffle… I just don’t have the bandwidth to keep up on what’s happening minute-to-minute. I mean, that’s part of the reason why I stopped watching television, so I can use my spare time to research and focus on doing the background work for upcoming projects.
Speaking of research… I’m starting some background work on the witch trials. I’ve dived into those details before, but I wanted to refresh my memory because I’m using the material in a different way. All I have to say about that is: horrifying and baffling all wrapped up into one strange emotion.
Anyway, I’m focused on wrapping up the Firefly RPG corebook at the moment and about to put up my Halloween decorations, so I’d better get back to it.
