Alright folks, this is a post that has been a long time coming for many reasons (most of which I will cover here, the rest are covered in my patron page version of this..hahaha I’m sorry I can’t take my self that seriously, no one would pay me…or would you?(1).
Look I won’t shit my self(2): I haven’t been very good at posting lately. I haven’t posted much since I left the UK. A lot has changed. Regardless I’ll fill you in on what’s been going on in my personal/professional life since the last post.
My family life is going better than it ever has but there’s not much to say there other than: my kid turned 9, my girlfriend and boyfriend both had a birthday, and I’ve finally gotten back in touch with my best friend for the first time since his birthday (six months prior). MOVING ON.
What has been really eating up my time is both the event of my girlfriend giving me her old Galaxy Note 4, which has a VERY powerful drawing app (sketchbook) and working on freelance writing gigs.
If you like my comics please follow me at my instagram page “fin.louie”. I sent my comic portfolio to a local publication, The River Front Times (the RFT in St Louis) and I’m hoping they pick me up but if not I have a hashtag campaign to make sure they know what they’re rejecting.
Aside from my comics I’ve been working on short stories for publication, one of which I think I have a winner for publication. It’s titled…hahaha sorry can’t reveal any details until it’s bought. Soz but me being “in control of sensitive information” is probably the closest I’ll get to being a CIA agent or something.
Also I’m getting through my novel and I began the Dresden Files audiobooks. I plan to make small 500 word “impressions” of each book as I work my way through.
When my short stories get published (operative word: WHEN) I’ll re-post them here. I am actively working to find a place to post my content under “www.offbeatonpoint.com” for less than 10$ a year (3) but if not I will continue to post online in plenty of places.
What to Expect:
I don’t know. I plan to post “impressions” (like 500 words or less) of the Dresden Files because I’ve read several of these books out of order (like 6), when I’m normally an order freak but this series is an exception, My friend Evan got me to read the, currently, newest book “Skin Game” as my first Dresden Files book and I was hooked.
I have been playing with the idea of doing reviews of “play novels” because I found this nice website indiedb.com but that’s just a fragment of an idea.
Either way don’t expect much from me in the coming months except web comics. And also maybe a birthday post or something. I turn 30 next month.
- I’m an asshole. Sorry I don’t have any actual patreon content but if you wanna give me money because you’ve liked my work thus far and want to see more I’m okay with that. I just have a hard time with the concept of having content behind a “pay wall” ie content you have to pay for to view. It makes me a bad business man but a good anarchist punk ie THE STRUGGLE IS FUCKING REAL!
- Unless I’ve drank too much.
- WordPress pretty much hates me, I’m guessing its because I am winning too hard.
