Edited, revised to fit the current pravda, with only two Unpersonings (we have always been at war with the Exile. We have never been at war with Azurewing. And Shroud? What Shroud?) and a few changes here and there... we have the revised opening chapter of Vilify 5 -- the fifth annual Vilify convention celebrating… Continue reading Vilify 5 (Revised) #1
New on Patreon today, and scheduled to appear here free tomorrow -- the revised "Vilify 5 #1!" The Justice Wing universe has evolved quite a bit since the first couple of episodes of Vilify 5 came out, and as a result "Vilify 5" needed some reworking and adjusting. Episode 1 is, as stated, out, and… Continue reading Vilify 5 Revision! #1 on Patreon today, Free on Banter Latte tomorrow!
And now, as could be expected, we Interview Trey. Except, of course, that Trey’s not actually physically in this episode. On the other hand…
A few months back, after literally years of being away from writing on a regular basis, I decided to begin the relaunch of my online life. Like many people in today's day and age, I decided to use Patreon as a means of organizing my activities and hopefully giving people value for their money --… Continue reading Storytelling in a Hybrid Serial Model
As we move into more of a regular rhythm, over on Patreon we see Interviewing Trey #14, with its Banter Latte appearance scheduled for tomorrow! Aside from the recalcitrant myth, we seem to be settling down. Justice Wing stuff -- including new and revived serials both exclusive to Patreon and shared here -- is gearing up… Continue reading Interviewing Trey #14 – on Patreon today, on Banter Latte tomorrow!
Even as Folio #1 gets assembled for PDFing, and the Myth gets ready for being put out... Folio #2 is rearing its head. Folio #2: Generations and Originals stakes out beginnings and expands our options a bit. This includes the next Justice Wing Banter Latte serial -- alongside Interviewing Trey and Vilify 5 (which is… Continue reading 001JW: The Paragirl from West Littleton (Tease)
I posted this Concept Art of second tier Justice Wing hero Greyfalcon over at the Patreon (with explanation of her uniform because blah blah blah along with some background details not here). On Twitter, I made mention that Greyfalcon isn’t “Black Canary,” but is enough of a pastiche that I wanted to do the ‘fishnets’ visual… Continue reading Justice Wing: Greyfalcon
An interesting comment came up, regarding one of my beta stories on my Patreon. It was a short story -- not, perhaps, the most common thing I write these days (though there's a myth partially completed which would beg to differ) -- and the reader didn't care for it. It's not that he thought it… Continue reading Patchwork Worlds: Structuring an inter-related anthology
As promised and finally here (on the Patreon for $5+) -- a short story that actually had the good manners to stick to being a short story. It's a faster read as a result. It's got a lot in it for shorter, though. (And it's not a short-short by any means.) Marco and the Bagmen… Continue reading Patreon: Debriefing Leather
A fast shot of a smirking Leather, mostly to show off her piercings -- though looking at the shot, I realize we can see her right ear, which has a few, instead of the metalworks in her left ear. As this is one of her formal suits (for slinking around a base or captive heroes,… Continue reading Leather – a face detail
After a rather long way away, as we've discussed elsewhere... Interviewing Trey returns -- the second of these serials to be revived. As you'll recall, Todd Chapman's in a bit of a pickle, and I'm afraid his brining isn't over just yet. One aim I have, in the "explaining how villainy works" vein, is the differentiation… Continue reading Interviewing Trey #13
In Interviewing Trey #1-12... Some years before, Todd Chapman had been a music journalist for Amplifier magazine. He was given the opportunity to interview a third tier, C-list supervillain named Leather -- an interview which went over the course of a week and served as a crash course in the economics of making a living at super villainy,… Continue reading Interviewing Trey: For Those Who Came In Late
