And so it begins...

I put the first twenty five pages of my graphic novel Hip Deep, Mountain High up on the interwebs. If you click on the title to the project in the previous sentence then it will take you to the free sample blog where I posted it.

The first 25 pages are free, the rest of it will cost you a minimum donation of $15 to me directly or to my PayPal account. That's a one time donation and if you donate now you will not only get an invite to the invitation only blog where the rest will appear when it get it done, and that will probably be in late spring or early summer of next year if all goes well, you will get the chance to buy at a reduced rate the CD version of the project which will contains numerous extras.

As of right now I have no publisher so it will not be available in a 'book' format, so there will be no signed copies for anyone. I may, at a later date, go the self published route if no publisher is interested.

The story is a twisted criminal tale about a fictional county in the mountain south that's run by a crime lord and his henchmen. A young man finds himself unwillingly thrust into Jones County and along the way he crosses paths with a dirty sheriff, an unscrupulous televangelist, members of the Willis crime family, and some TV personalities who like to make his life even more crazy.

This project has been a huge collaborative effort between myself and my friends and their families who have served as models for the photos. So far photos from three countries and two states have been used in this project and there many more photos to be taken.

This project is stretching me creatively, which is what I wanted, and it's consuming a lot of my time. I hope you like what I've done as much as I like what I've come up with, and if you don't then that's fine too.
