Word Smith 3 – Back Cover

Production of Word Smith Volume 3 is powering ahead. There’s a lot of things happening in parallel but I thought I’d provide a quick sneak peek at the back cover layout. Enjoy!

The back image is a completed panel from inside the book. I love the different expressions on their faces. I really can’t wait before I can get this graphic novel out to you to read.

Word Smith 3 – KS and IGG Finished

It’s been a long couple of months but the Kickstarter and IndieGoGo campaigns for Word Smith Volume 3 is now over. Firstly a huge thank you for everyone’s support. I’m so glad to be able to bring this story to life. There is a long weekend coming up so I’m going to take a short break before getting back into it.

I received the completed sketch of Victoria and Sparky from Malaysian artist Wallace Cheong! It will be used as an A5 print for one the rewards. I’m so happy with how it turned out. As the production of Word Smith 3 progresses, I’ll keep posting updates so you will know how everything is going!

Word Smith 3 – Kickstarter Finished!

I know this post is a little late but a HUGE thank you to everyone who supported the Word Smith 3 Kickstarter! This has my biggest campaign ever with over 500+ backers (542 backers) and coming so close to AU$20K raised (AU$19,862).

I’m so excited to be able to bring the next chapter of Victoria’s story and I can’t wait for you guys to read it. I’ll provide updates as production progresses but all the artwork is done except for the drawn in pages. Thanks once again for backing Word Smith!

Word Smith 3 is now LIVE on Kickstarer. YES! It’s just been launched! I’m always a mess of nerves when I press that launch button. I do hope you can check it out and any support will be much appreciated. Let’s see how many backers we can get and break some stretch goals!

Word Smith has been absolutely amazing to create. I love the steampunk fantasy genre (aetherpunk) and I’ve got the first arc all planned out. The stakes are going to get higher! What will Victoria and her friends get up to in this latest volume?

Transhuman – All Posted

Today is a big day for me! I now have posted out all the rewards for Transhuman – Rivka’s Story. On a rough count, it was around 250+ parcels. Whew . . I’m so glad to get it all done. If you’re in Australia, I’m hoping it will arrive before Christmas. Otherwise, it could take 2-3 months but I’m always hoping there could be a Christmas miracle and you receive it early!

Right now I feel exactly like Mei-Li. I think I will take a chance to relax. After that, it’s back to the production of Word Smith 3. I’m currently planning for a late January 2021 Kickstarter launch.

Here’s a sneak peek at one of the limited edition prints for the Word Smith Volume 3 Kickstarter. The painting done by Emmet Grind and Isabelle Chamois and the characters were done by P.R. Dedelis and Peyton Freeman. I really love how the final piece turned out combining 2 very different styles into one image.

Transhuman – Sketches

In a world where the body can be replaced with cybernetics, what does it mean to be human?

I’ve been so excited waiting for this arrive. I finally got the chance to pick it up this morning and it’s absolutely gorgeous. This is the rewards sketches for Transhuman! Sebastian Navas has done the most incredible job on them. Wow! I am totally stunned.

I’m in the process of getting Transhuman laid out. Still hoping to get the proofs ready in the next week or so, then it’ll be a full review before authorising the first print run. It’s definitely getting very exciting now.
