Hell and Pizza

Comics, My Fiction, Works in ProgressadminComment

Pages are coming in for my series set in Hell, Nebraska, which I'm going to publish digitally in 11-page installments as soon as I've got enough material. For now, though, the construction of Dis, as imagined by Anna Wieszczyk: Hell NB p.5

Also, I took the leap and set up Pizza Good Times for the Kindle. Click the creepy cover to buy or read a preview:

A book and its cover

Show of hands: would you buy this book based on its cover?

Personally, I love it. I can't stop laughing every time I look at it. Art by Anna, once again.

Pizza Good Times is my comedy novella, largely written in Scotland but very American in most other ways. I've won awards for reading it but have as yet not been able to secure an agent or publisher for it. I'm considering pushing PGT to digital devices to see how it fares—people who've heard/read it seem to really enjoy it, but it's been kind of a hard sell for agents and publishers because it's quite short. It may in fact be more suited to digital. I really, really want a printed copy of it at some point (and not a self-published one), but possibly success as a digital title would catch the print world's interest. Maybe not. A cover, though (and a really nice one at that), at least gives me the option.
