Being a ghostwriter is kind of an odd emotional experience. On the one hand, I’m stoked to be getting paid to do something I’m good at (while sitting at home with my hookah and awesome music and sometimes wine…)On the other hand, I know that whoever is claiming my work as their own is being paid way more to do NOTHING because they have connections that I don’t. Based on how some of their requests are worded, I suspect that they barely have any true writing ability at all. WHHYYYY would you take a job as a writer when you can’t write?????

Seattle-ish people, mark your calendars! The wonderful Jennifer Lovely has offered to host a yard sale! (If you are a Seattle gothy type and want to come sell stuff, that’s fine, too.)
SATURDAY, SEPT. 27TH IN WEST SEATTLE!
1836 18th Ave SW
1pm to 6ish (We’re goths, none of this morning start time nonsense.)
I might visit. I’ll finally be in my new Pacific NW home.
By testing my ability to complete an image, start to finish, I’ve been working on this piece and timing myself, while reaching certain states of completion (sketch, line art, grey-scale, and eventually color). At about 8 hours, I’ve reached grey-scale, and I couldn’t be happier with the progress. Although that sounds like a lot of time, full pieces with backgrounds and multiple characters are a rarity, so given this has one main character and thirteen visible zombies, I’d say that’s pretty damn good! Plus inking and shading.
Basically, I’m super proud of myself. Now I just hope that when I’m done, and I have the new commissions list made, this will pay off! Either way, super happy so far!
So, let me guess— you just started a new book, right? And you’re stumped. You have no idea how much an AK47 goes for nowadays. I get ya, cousin. Tough world we live in. A writer’s gotta know, but them NSA hounds are after ya 24/7. I know, cousin, I know. If there was only a way to find out all of this rather edgy information without getting yourself in trouble…
You’re in luck, cousin. I have just the thing for ya.
It’s called Havocscope. It’s got information and prices for all sorts of edgy information. Ever wondered how much cocaine costs by the gram, or how much a kidney sells for, or (worst of all) how much it costs to hire an assassin?
I got your back, cousin. Just head over to Havocscope.
((PS: In case you’re wondering, Havocscope is a database full of information regarding the criminal underworld. The information you will find there has been taken from newspapers and police reports. It’s perfectly legal, no need to worry about the NSA hounds, cousin ;p))
