I’ve just completed the final draft of a major project for Scyther Audio Dramas. If you’ve been following me on social media then you already know the clues I’ve dropped, but as of yesterday I can officially make the announcement.
I just completed the final draft, which already has gone out to the production team and voice actors. I’ve been hired to write the season 3 premier of X-Men The Audio Drama. My story will be an adaptation of “X-Men Days of Future Past”. I based most of it on the original print with nods to the 90s animated series and the live action movie, but all with my own spin on the events, of which I’m super proud. There’s even an alternate ending, which was cut from the final for a better version, but I hope to at least release that in script form once all is completed.
This has been a dream project of mine for years to write for a Marvel or DC story, and it’s finally happened. If you haven’t checked out X-Men the Audio Drama, then you should now. It’s on the podcast app for free and you won’t be disappointed. Catch up on the first two seasons before this one hits.
Well I’m wrapping up the writing on my new book aimed at ages 10 – 18 about growing up and the range of emotions we deal with. My daughter is putting the finishing touches on the cover art and I’ll share that as soon as it’s ready. I’m looking at a late September release for print and digital copies.
In other news I’ve been hired to write an audioplay adaptation of a major storyline involving characters that I grew up loving and still do. These are characters you are all familiar with and I’m excited to share the news as soon as I can. In addition to the writing of the season 4 premier, I’ll also be voice acting in it. I’ll announce the role(s) with my next update.
Now to get back to the tight deadlines and everything else I’m working on. Hope you all have a good week.
Oh and feel free to guess what the project is. First one who guesses correctly will get a free download of one of my novels.
Well quarantine does sure make strange things happen. If you follow @homemadedelish on Instagram, then you know we’ve been doing some live segments in the kitchen as she creates some amazing food and I assist with doing whatever I can to keep it entertaining and help out. lol.
Apparently after the last few times broadcasting, there has been a HUGE positive response about the two of us and what we do. It’s partly why we brought back Think, Sip, Write. But we decided to continue doing this a few times a week with cooking segments or something food related.
We will be going live again tonight around 4 pm Eastern Time, as well as a few more nights this week and then after that. If you feel like joining us and have any questions to add to the fun, we’d love to have you visit live.
Just make sure to follow @homemadedelish on Instagram so you are notified when we are on. This will also let you know when we go live with guest interviews for Think, Sip, Write. #bigeatssmallkitchen #thinksipwrite
My daughter, Lana’s, favorite stuffed animal has always been a pink bear since she could understand what she was holding. Her final addition to the Animals of Oz series focuses on the Bears of Bear Center in Oz. These are toy stuffed bears run by the Lavender Bear king and his adviser the Little Pink Bear.
On the back of the painting she wanted a quote by L. Frank Baum. It reads: “Time is given for us to be happy and for no other reason. When we waste time, we waste happiness.”
What are some of your favorite characters from the land of Oz?
Deciding to not have the carpenter in this scene was a wise choice by my daughter. Lana wanted to focus on the series’ animals, so here’s her vision of the Walrus and Oysters. She chose a quote for the back of the painting by Lewis Carroll that reads: “Whatever is worth doing is worth doing well.”

#scrypthalloween is over and November is a month of being #thankful. I’m blessed to have come this far and have much more in the works. What are your creative endeavors? #authorsofinstagram #book #novel
Final day of #scrypthalloween 2019 looks at my first #graphicnovel turned #book. Here are some facts: 1) it was published as a comic book back on February 2, 2012 and later became a text version. 2) I’d sworn to only create one #zombie novel but when readers began sending me letters to expand upon that threat I decided to do this spinoff. 3) When @dpipito and I began discussing how we could do it in #art form he suggested bringing nine artists plus himself on to do the work. We recruited from Craigslist and this was the official start of sCrypt Publishing. 4) the cover was a photo we took of severed rubber limbs and leftovers in a refrigerator. Then Dan took the image through a Saran Wrap filter and added a retro horror feel to resemble a creepy Hannibal Lecter type movie poster. 5) the undead circus in the book was Dan’s idea because he wanted to illustrate freaky and deformed zombies. It was a creative element that I couldn’t pass up and features a strong female lead that ends up in my novels later on. What are your favorite zombie stories or comics? #authorsofinstagram #book #spinoff
Day 28 of #scrypthalloween gets into #dnasplicing and #evolution in my #novel GENETIC MORSELS. Some facts: 1) it was originally published on June 22, 2015. 2) @dpipito of @pintsizedpages came up with the design and #art for the cover to reflect a chalkboard with biology notes. 3) I grew up a fan of comic books and wanted to write a novel about people with abilities. When I approached this #book however, I did it based on real laws of physics. It’s very grounded and lacks colorful spandex to create a feasible plot. 4) the original title was “Fatty Morsels” and it was going to be a wrap up of loose ends from the first six novels. When I decided it could kick off a new trilogy I changed the title and merged the idea to involve genetic manipulation and evolution. 5) there is an underlying political theme that runs throughout the plot that echoes a lot of what we see in politicians today. Jason Black is more than just a world leader, he’s a villain with public trust and nefarious intentions. #authorsofinatagram #dna #superheroes #supervillains #political
Day 22 of #scrypthalloween involves my #compilation #novel THE PANDORA’S CHAOS TRILOGY. Here are some facts: 1) the novels included are SOULS 4 SUPPER, DEVIL’S DESSERT, and TECHNO FEAST, but there are also 3 spinoff #books included GHOSTLY HAUNTINGS, DEMONIC ENTITIES, and VIRAL UPGRADES. 2) the trilogy was published on 11 September 2014. 3) the #coverart by @dpipito is akin to the style of statues I describe as existing in Atlantis. For the cover however Dan included hints at the content. There is a soul emanating from a technological power source in its chest while other parts seem machine like. There’s a wilted demon wing on one arm and an angelic feathered wing on the other. 4) there’s bonus content that hints at the next book in the series. That content is a list of clones genetically engineered with various traits and abilities. These are only hinted at in this collection so it gives the reader something to look forward to. 5) the book is available in print and digital formats on lulu.com, amazon and Barnes and Noble sites.
Day 20 of #sCrypt Halloween is all about #conspiracy in my #novel PLANET ATE. Here are some facts: 1) it was published on March 7, 2016. 2) the cover is a recreation of a dry erase board similar to one I have in my office with notes on the current #WIP. 3) although #aliens are a central focus of the #book it focuses more on the government coverup as to them existing. 4) The Apollo missions, The Book of Ezekiel, Neanderthals, Noah and his Ark, Area 51, the Hollow Earth, the Holy Grail, Easter Island, Egyptian Mythology and more are all incorporated into the plot. 5) before each chapter is an actual quote made by important figures in our history regarding the existence of extra terrestrials. What is your favorite conspiracy?
Day 19 of #scrypthalloween shares some facts and an excerpt from my #novel DEVIL’S DESSERT. 1) it was published on May 3, 2013. 2) the title for this #book was decided on by a vote from readers and followers. 3) every faith, religion and non-believer was taken into account when writing and researching the #demon lore within. I wanted to represent each of these in a story that would show those differences may not be as far apart as people think. 4) it earned a place in the top 100 list of novels for that year. #top100 . 5) God and the Devil are represented as Light and Darkness with their own views on the universe and those who dwell in it.
Day 16 of #scrypthalloween looks at some facts and an excerpt from my #short story DEMONIC ENTITIES. Here’s some little known info: 1) it was my first spinoff from a novel that was not presented in graphic novel form. 2) publication date 9/13/16. 3) the novel that it spawns from DEVIL’S DESSERT, focuses more on the evils that humans are guilty of with the demons influencing or feeding off of that. The short story allowed me to focus more on the fantastical elements of demonology, presenting the lore to a wider audience. 4) the cover is comprised of multiple photos of my fire pit merged together. In it you can see what appears to be faces and sprites bringing the fire to life in an eerie manner. 5) I studied a list of over 9,000 demon and angel identities to properly portray something from every faith.
