In the works 2014

I’ve received quite a few emails from those who’ve read my novels, asking, “Rick, when are you going to release your next novel in your horror series?”  With all kind words and compliments, I’d like to thank those fan emails.  I enjoy responding to each of them.  So, I decided that to answer the questions asked, I’ll post on what is in the works.

First, my novels:  Now that copyrights are in place and my agent gave me the okay, I’m finally able to give a hint as to what the next book is about.  “Genetic Morsels” begins a new trilogy of novels that take place in the not so distant future.  The next step in human evolution has begun, and with it is presented a whole new era of conflict.  As people with extraordinary abilities struggle to control their genetic code, those who are “normal” worry about extinction.  This is not just a novel where people run around in tights like superheroes…. no… in fact, it is the contrary, and based in this physical world, where it is a much more realistic and horrifying take on what it would be like to develop powers.  Think about if you could generate fire from your hands, but each time you do it, your hands burn as if placed in a heat source.  The powers could be a gift, but they could also kill the user or severly hurt them.  Look for this book in 2015.

Also in the works is the “Pandora’s Chaos” trilogy.  This will compile my novels: “Souls 4 Supper,” “Devil’s Dessert,” and “Techno Feast,” and will have the added bonus of the spinoff graphic novel stories, and some hints as to whats to come for the next trilogy.  This is a stand alone trio in the series that will be released in 4th Quarter 2014.

Finally, my first book, “Flesh And Leftovers,” is being adapted by sCrypt Sound into an audiobook.  I’ve been working around the clock with adapting the audio and working with some amazing voice actors/actresses.  It’s been a lot of fun, but consuming much time.

Next up, sCrypt Comics: Dan and I would like to officially announce sCrypt Sound.  This is a component of our sCrypt brand that opens new doors for us.  I record music often, and now that we’ve got a halfway decent studio in place, sCrypt Sound will focus on recording not just my music, but our audio book conversions, as well as any potential future podcasts.

The next graphic novel, “Devil’s Dessert: Demonic Entities” will be released in 2015.  We had to take a break from the overwhelming work load of the graphic novels, and are perfecting the stories to be converted into graphic form.  We will be announcing artists as soon as this kicks into high gear.

Instead of the graphic novel, however, we are working on a children’s book. “A Little Girl In the Land of The Hiccups” is a short story written by myself (Rick Pipito) and will be illustrated by Dan Pipito.  To be released this holiday season.

Other Miscellaneous works:  While Dan is working hard on his own artistic endeavors, I’m gearing up for a summer season of musical fun.  For the first time in a long time, I’ll return to the stage as a solo act, playing guitar, singing and harmonica.  With a mixture of originals and cover songs, the plan is appeasing all audiences of every type of music.

My podcast, “Think About This” is on indefinite hiatus at this time.  My cohost (and wife), Roberta, is hard at work with her Homemade Delish brand, and the podcast has had to take a back seat in order to accomplish some goals.  We do plan on returning when we can though.  In the meantime, I’ve been assisting with her success, and we are both confident that this will enable me to take sCrypt and my works as well as hers to a whole new level and beyond.

Also, don’t forget that our new sCrypt store is up.  While you can’t get my books (available at http://www.lulu.com and http://www.amazon.com) or the comics (available at http://www.indyplanet.com) there, you CAN get other cool merchandise to support us.  Bumper stickers, T-Shirts, collectible glasses and coasters and more are all available at http://www.cafepress.com/scrypt

As always, feel free to ask any questions, and if you are interested in working with us on a project, feel free to contact us here or at scryptcomics@gmail.com  .  While you wait for our new releases, we will continue to put some in depth reviews of upcoming movies, TV series, and animated projects.  Thanks for following, and stay tuned.  🙂
