2017 State of the Universe

Congratulations, everyone! We made it to 2017! Now we just have to ask ourselves what it holds for us. I’m not sure about you, but I’m determined to have a good year!

I’ve got several exciting projects slated for this year, but the first thing on my agenda is to clear out my backlog. I’ve been holding on to episodes 6-10 of Supremacy: Reformation for way to long at this point, so I’m going to have those out the door this quarter. Then, I will package up the first 10 episodes into Supremacy: Reformation Volume 1, so if you’ve not been keeping up with the series, you can jump into it and get caught up.

The next item is to expand the Supremacy universe with the publication of the YA scifi novel I’ve been writing. I’ve been excited about this project for a while and can’t wait to write a teaser post explaining the premise. The working title is Mechanical Soul, but that’s all the detail you’ll get out of me at this time, but trust me, it’s going to blow your mind!

Robot Dinosaur Lazer Attack! should be making an appearance this year. I started writing this crazy idea of a retired MMA fighter who gets caught up in a galactic war that comes to Earth and it morphed into a spiritual prequel for Power Rangers. The timing on this couldn’t be any better since the new Rangers movie is going to be awesome. However, my take on it is certainly not kid friendly, because I’m writing it for my fellow Gen1 fans!

Finally, I’ve officially started the process of writing Shadeskin 3. All your favorite characters will be back in action very soon, and I can guarantee an exciting fighting ticket: Clara vs. Jailyn. Zyne vs. Astrous. Hunter vs. Katie. Darrus vs. Sams. Daniel vs. Matt. It’s all going down! I just hope my humble town of Shreveport can survive this level of brawling.

My goal lately has been to work on creating more stories that I can bring out on the convention trail, so you may see me out in the wild. If I’m feeling particularly adventurous, I may show up in Dallas or Lafayette.

So, that’s what I’m planning on bringing to the 2017 table: more stuff and more events. Look for more Supremacy: Reformation, Mechanical Soul, Robot Dinosaur Lazer Attack!, and Shadeskin 3.

Let’s make 2017 great again!
