... the plan is to be creative. Not go broke. Why does an artist have to starve? They don't. Nor should they. I designed / layed-out the cover for my upcoming novel using a $30.00 program. Comic Life. No ... it does not have all of the features found in your programs costing several hundred of dollars. But guess what? You won't need or use all of the bells-and-whistles found in those over-priced and super bloated applications.

Keeping it simple, getting it done

Now that my second novel, SJM is done; at least the first few edits, I'm getting back to working on the NETERS™ comics. Not just building the characters from scratch in 3D, but the actual comic books. I fired up Comic Life to add some updated images to issue zero. Can't sing enough praise for Comic Life. This program makes laying out a comic fairly easy. My operating system on my desktop is a little old and hence wonky, but this application gets it done. And it's under $50!


And then there's celtx. It's free. It's a script writing program that has a ton of power under the hood. I use it to write my comic book scripts. The above is a sneak peep at issue 3 of Neters. read more.

Many of you know that my second novel is complete. I'm currently doing the second re-write ... again; which is really like the fourth edit, but hey, gotta do it right. I had to put the NETERS™ novel to the side in order to finish Sun Juice Mechanics. Man ... cifer-RA, a brand of African American Speculative Fiction; or simply put, African American Science Fiction is a genre unto itself. Keeps me busy.

So ... I opened the Neters novel file and took a good read. I'm afraid the time for a pure Neters novel is over. The story still needs to be told though. Problem is, I'm writing other novels AND I'm rebuilding all of the characters from the Neters universe from the ground up. Taking a bunch of time, family.

Solution -

Going old school to bring a fresh approach. Illustrated Novels.


Doing research for the exact approach and look or format for the Neters novel. I'm sure the illustrated novel format will work for a wider crowd. Found some pictures online for study purposes...
