STRANGER (or where the hell is PS?)

Okay, in addition to the website freaking out on us (for which I’m very, very sorry — I honestly haven’t found the root of the problem, yet — my provider says there’s network problem of some sort) I have been completely remiss in keeping you all updated as to what is going on. First, since I last posted, I’ve been working on STRANGER, and I’m really happy with how it’s turning out so far. Here’s sneak peek:

STRANGER sample

To answer your big question: When is PS coming back?

Answer: After I finish STRANGER.

Q: And when is that going to be?

A: I honestly don’t know yet. Rough pencils are finished, and I’m about 20% through the final artwork. I’m also juggling illustration projects around it. It will be finished this fall for sure, but there will some lead time as I finish up the next PS scene before anything new gets posted here.

Q: What’s up with the archive? Are you changing anything?

A: No, it’s just my server freaking out. I will get it fixed as soon as humanly possible.

Q: Do you hate us?

A: Absolutely not! I am grateful to you for sticking this out with me. I know you just want to keep reading the story.

That said please understand that I have a lot of responsibilities I have to handle right now, and unfortunately I have to put PS on hold until I finish them. I understand that I’m not very good at communicating at times, and frankly it’s because I get overwhelmed. There are people out there who live to interact with everyone they can online, but I am not one of those people. When I’m working on a project, I tend to stop interacting online so I can focus.

I admit I am at fault, and I should have checked in so I found this website issue more quickly. I’ll do my best to make sure that doesn’t happen in the future.

Rest assured, I will be finishing this book, and you will be there to see it. It just might be a couple more months before PS starts posting again. I hope you understand.

best

Site Difficulties…

Apologies for the silence. I’ve been away working on some other projects over the summer. A number of you have pointed out the problem of the archive not showing up. When I had checked before, it seemed to be just a one-off error. However, when I checked today it seems my WordPress database has become corrupted, and I’m going to have to recover it.

Oops. These things happen, but it will take some time to fix the problem. I’m currently on deadline for an illustration project, so this may take away from my time to work on the web coding necessary to fix the problem. My apologies that the archive is down for the time being. I will try to fix it as quickly as time permits.

More as soon as I can.
