. . . self-publishing is certainly lots of work (and a long, learning experience! Not over yet!), but the creative freedom is a great trade from working with a publisher. I picked the editor, my typographer, my e-book formatter, and now even my colourist, a fellow illustrator who'll help me complete the plates for the illustrated version of my book. Is this crazy? Perhaps, but I've reached that point in life where I really would like to do things well, and with as much fun and creativity as possible. :)
Being open to collaborators has helped me find great relationships to get this first book done.
That ramble said, here's my novella, available for Kindle (Nook and so forth are in the queue):
The logo and type artist, btw, is the esteemed Tom Orzechowski, so if you are at all involved in comics, please give him a vote this year, for he is nominated for an Eisner! Thank You! :)
And a very short blurb, because you can read the long version, plus Trina Robbins' praise, at the link:
"In 1880, criminals are resurrected to fight the supernatural evils that threaten a mechanical and supernatural London."
Strong heroine, fun dialogue, horror, and mystery! Hope you enjoy! :).
