About me

I work as a consultant in Intensive Care and Anaesthesia in Manchester. I am married with 3 kids who keep the days and weekends busy and fun. I write mainly in the late evening and have mainly being focusing on fantasy and YA/MG sci-fi. My first book, previously on CN, has been taken up by a US indie publisher called Fantasy Island Book publishing and will be available as an e-book and print book through them. My experience with self-publshing through CN has been very positive and I plan to remain on the site in order to publish other work, write reviews and look at others work. My YA book is being considerd by a UK based publisher, so fingers crossed.

I'm really trying to make it so it's not a complete ripoff of Kirkman's Invincible. And, yeah, I've been a comic book fan since I was in grade school. (more) and gained+3

Idk I had an idea from books I used to get at the library and that's what came out. And I might take you up on your offer, the problem is I don't quite know how I want them to look. I'm going to give it a few more tries and see if I can't come up with anything that I like. Thanks though. (more) and gained+3

If you told me what you thought would look good, or what costumes/supers you wanted (Chamberlain, Apollo, Stone, Slam, the Captain?) i'd enjoy doing it. Would scan and then send it to u as a JPEG which works on the cover creator function on CN. (more) and received+3

I wasn't been cheeky- it works well- it looks like a storyboard or sketchpad for a comic, which is I think what you were trying to achieve. I'm towards 200pages through now and the story has really found its feet. I assume you are a massive comics fan, at least that's what comes across. The high school goings on against the background superhero story will draw comparison to Spiderman, especially the Ultimate version- but that's no bad thing. Look forward to reading the rest (I read it on my i-phone so can only manage short bursts). Cheers, Ross. (more) and gained+3
