My First Book Giveaway!

16 11 2011

Ladies and gents!  Something exciting happened today.  I got a digital copy of Stephen King’s new title, 11/22/63.  I have not read the book myself, but I hear it’s great, with a 4.42/5 stars from Goodreads and a 4/5 from Amazon ratings.  This time travel novel sends a school teacher to stop the assassination (in the past, mind you) of JFK.  (You can read the official summary here.)

Want it?  Here’s how to get it: Read the rest of this entry »


Two Days ‘Til Halloween:

29 10 2011

Have you seen TrollhunterNO!?  (Or was that a yes?)  Either way, go watch it (again?).

In the meantime, take a look at two uglies inspired by the awesome film:


Three Days ‘Til Halloween – Kerberus

28 10 2011

So I was looking through the monsters I’ve drawn recently and trying to decide what I should share next.  Maybe it’s a month old and on notebook paper–*GASP!*–however I felt I had to share this somewhat rough take on the Greek hellhound we all know and love.  My cousin asked me to draw him Cerberus, one of his favorite monsters from the Percy Jackson books.  I said sure, but only if I could put a little McGannon flare in there.

Which I did.

Ladies and gents, I give you, “KERBERUS“.


Robbie, I’m Hooome!

19 09 2011

Ouch!  Over a month since my last post.  Robbie is not happy with me.

Yes, well…moving on, I can say there’s been a good reason for my lack of posts, and it’s a darn good reason if I do say so myself.  Very soon, you’ll be privy to a–*ahem*–project long in the works.  Sadly I can’t say more right now, but look for a big announcement early this Fall!

And I’ll try to release some more sketches soon–on NOT-lined paper!  How’s that for ya!?

Peace out, and Happy Talk-Like-A-Pirate Day!

ARGH!  Thar’s tha sp’rit, Robort!

Finding the Heart

20 07 2011

‘Lo everyone!  If you keep up with my blog you’ve probably noticed the back and forth talk of my plans and schemes for future posts and features.  I won’t try to hide it, I don’t know exactly what I’m doing here.  I have many things I want to do, but what is it I need to do with this place?

Find the heart.  In trying to build my author platform, I’ve lost focus and gone all over the place with Wyvern’s Peak.  Just as we writers have to find our focus after a bout of writer’s block, I need to step back and remember what I started this blog for.

That said, I’ll try to keep from saying what I’m going to do for now, and instead I’ll just do what posts come to mind (or heart), if any at all.  Don’t expect a lot from me, I’m hard at work on two different series of books and hoping-praying-wishing-pushing for one of those books to be released later this year…which means lots of time spent writing, and less time on here.

However, I did promise a monster two weeks ago!  And I only got one vote, but that vote (from my Irish blooded dad!) won.  So here’s this week’s pencil sketched monster:  The drunken leprechaun! Read the rest of this entry »

For this week’s sketch, I give you…Piscus!  (What is it?  Stop asking that!  I hardly ever know.)

So–with a completely irrelevant conversation change–this is another short week post for me.  Sorry folks, but writing comes first.  Still, I’m gathering up research topics for my time in between writing projects, and I want to know what you think is more interesting:  An eight headed dragon, a drunk leprechaun, or a spine wielding headless horseman?

Send your thoughts of which is most interesting in by comment or email.  Or if there’s another monster that piques your interest, send that instead.  When it comes to crazy monsters, I aim to please.

Seeya folks next week, possibly Monday.


Faces and Doodles

15 06 2011

Sorry folks, short post today.  I’m in the middle of a close-to-final(yeah-we’ve-heard-that-before)-rewrite and am trying to use the time for mainly that.  As they say, don’t let the writing blog get in front of the writing.

So for this week, I leave you with some pages of random sketches that (as you can probably tell) are creative warm ups.

See you all next week!
