Fine Art Friday 7/16/2021

Hey Fans, Friends, and Fellows,

If you’ve visited the welcome page of my website, you’ve already seen that I made some new art to use for social media banners. I’m pretty happy with how each story’s art came out. I’m also excited to share that Dramamancer is live on Kindle Vella! The first seven episodes are live, and a new episode is scheduled to go up every Friday.

I changed the letters from black to pink since last I posted the art for this series.
I like this style so much that I’m planning to rebrand my books with it. Updates are forthcoming.
I need to work on my fire drawing skills, but I like how these turned out well enough for now.
No changes to this one, but I didn’t want it to feel left out.
All four combined!

Fine Art Friday Week Twenty-One

Hey Fans, Friends, and Fellows,

I liked the art I made for Dramamancer enough to try making something in the same style for Shadow-Blessed. I’m not completely satisfied with it yet, but I like the concept. I’m working with. It’s also worth mentioning that Amazon announced that the Kindle Vella platform will be launching in July. Not an exact launch date but that’s better than the vague “coming soon” that they left us with up until now. I’m pretty excited for Dramamancer to go online.

Fine Art Friday Week Fifteen

Amazon is going to launch a new publishing platform called Kindle Vella. The stories posted on there will be serialized shorts from 600 to 5,000 words per episode. My stories for Two Page Tuesdays won’t be eligible for the new platform as one of the rules is that you can’t post episodes freely available from another site. I don’t want to make people start paying for Shadow-Blessed. It started free, and that’s the way it’s gonna stay. Still, I’m excited to try out the Kindle Vella. If you’re up to all caught up on Shadow-Blessed, you may remember Storm Ryder, the actor who revealed his magic on camera. Before I knew it, I started thinking about stories revolving around him. Kindle Vella feels like a great opportunity to explore his character and the lighter side of magic. Moon Witch Taken, Moon Witch Lost, and Shadow-Blessed all explore higher-stake situations than I want to explore in this new series, Dramamancer. Long story short, I’ve designed the “cover” art for Dramamancer this week. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.
