Dear ladies and gentleman:
Here is a much overdue update on myself and The Poet and the Flea:
- As you may recall, I had emergency gallbladder surgery and pancreatitis this past January. Well, I hadn’t been feeling well since then and was back in the hospital with pancreatitis in April. Long story short, I’ve had a very rough year so far, but my health is finally back to normal!
- I’ve continued work on short film Death Is No Bad Friend about Robert Louis Stevenson. As of this month, our director Mary Lachapelle is finally on board after graduating from Tulane, so we’re hoping to really get the ball rolling now.
- I’ve been working on The First Reich (thefirstreich.wordpress.com) about the Jewish-Austrian psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich — specifically pages 11 through 25. I haven’t been able to work on this in a while, but I’m hoping to finish these pages up soon.
- For those in the Washington, D.C./Maryland/Virginia area, I will be exhibiting at DC Zinefest on August 9th and SPX (Small Press Expo) on September 13th — 14th.
- A few months ago, I completed my William Blake research. And as of June 10th, I finally finished the script for all three volumes of The Poet and the Flea!!! Moreover, I’ve been very busy sending out query letters to literary agents that represent graphic novels; I haven’t been picked up yet, but I’ve received very positive feedback so far.
Many thanks and kind regards,
