On the 3rd Day of Christmas…
ON THE THIRD DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME, 3 WEREWOLVES…
2 vampires, and zombies in a story.
One of the hardest novels I had to write was BONES AT BREAKFAST. There’s only so much lore to lycans that leave little ground for creative freedom and uniqueness. Thankfully, I managed to pull it off once I got past the little obstacles. The novel and its spinoff IN CASE OF WEREWOLF are perfect gifts for the holidays and beyond. The picture at the left was done by Dan Pipito for the graphic novel version of the spinoff.

Day 6 – In Case Of Werewolf
Day 6 of #scrypthalloween looks at my short story spinoff IN CASE OF WEREWOLF. This was the third graphic novel that @dpipito and I coordinated with 10 artists, and it is now in text form as well. We had some very professional artists for the comic version, and the stories within were written as ones you’d tell around a campfire….
official description: Do your bones ache? Does your instinct sometimes prevail over rational thought? When night descends, do you feel “different”? If any of these are your symptoms, then you are not alone. You may have contracted lycanthropy, and when the moon rises, your inner beast will emerge. This short story is a spinoff of the novel “Bones At Breakfast” and is available at lulu.com in print or as part of the Eden’s Order Trilogy at Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
Day 8 – In Case Of Werewolf
Have you posted something for #scrypthalloween yet? There are giveaways for those who do. Day 8 continues with the #werewolf theme. For it I’m announcing a revised release of IN CASE OF WEREWOLF. This spinoff from my Bones At Breakfast novel was originally done in graphic comic book form. Now it’s available in text form as a short story on Lulu.com in print, or on Amazon for Kindle in the Eden’s Order Trilogy download.

Artist Of The Month January 2013: Ivy Duffy
Welcome to the new year, and as we bring it in, we also want to present our first artist of the month for 2013, Ivy Duffy! As a child, Ivy was fascinated with many different art forms. Without any formal training, she taught herself the basics of traditional fine art, engraving and wood burning. Her most recent achievement was the opportunity to illustrate a story in sCrypt Comics’ third graphic novel, “Bones At Breakfast: In Case Of Werewolf”. The experience gained by illustrating this comic helped her expand her talent and realize, she wanted to prefect her skill with a more focused education in graphic illustration.
The majority of Ivy’s work is developed for her own fulfilment and the pleasure of friends and family, but she occasionally accepts commissioned pieces for gifts and tattoos. If interested in contacting Ivy, she can be reached by email at: Ivyduffy95@gmail.com
Here are some samples of her outstanding work.
