New Dear Creature Website!

And whaddayaknow, a second new website is here!

Along with my new store, today I’m launching an updated version of my old Sea Freak site under its new title, Dear Creature. Check out a fresh version of the polished first chapter, still free to one and all. I’ll also be keeping Dear Creature specific news and promotions up to date over there, especially in these months leading up to the October release from Tor!

New store

It’s high time I had an online store. With Dear Creature only a couple months away from release, it made sense to have a way to start taking preorders. Everyone else is doing it! It’s been available for preorder from the major and indie bookselling sites, but I now have a place where you can order from me personally, and even get a copy signed and delivered in October with a bit of original art to boot!

I also have a few prints for sale and a section for taking commissions. Soon enough I’ll probably have some original art up there too.

Have at it!

People’s Pets in Paintings

 

Here’s a fun one. An anniversary present for a guy who has a black cat named Mifune, after Mr. Toshiro Mifune of Japanese moviedom. The girlfriend wanted something in the vein of a monster movie poster (what a girlfriend, eh?).

Another note: the recipient of the electric fire is none other than Tendril, from the 80s cartoon show Inhumanoids. Another bit of nerd lore. Now the madness is complete.
