Last week was the big photo shoot for Well-Behaved Women, and I could not have been happier with the results. Lauren Dubois and Tricia Lupien, my photographer and graphic artist respectively, were a well-oiled machine and they wrapped everything up in a few brisk hours. It helped that my models, Jennifer MacPherson, Kateri Chambers, and Renee Sutherland, were on the ball from start to finish, along with my wife-slash-costumer Veronica.
It’ll be a while before any official cover or promo art will be ready, but in the meantime I am proud to present a selection of the best photos from the day. Enjoy!

Well-Behaved Women: I spent a few days last week going through book one and working up a third draft. I’m still waiting to hear back from a couple of test-readers before I do a final pre-edit draft. Meanwhile, I am inching my way through the climax of book two.
The Adventures of Strongarm & Lightfoot – book four: First draft in progress.
Action Figures – Issue Eight: Crawling from the Wreckage: Fourth draft written.
Action Figures – Issue Nine: Rough plotting in progress.
Action Figures – Issue One: Secret Origins (audiobook): Review completed, final editing in progress.

Do you have an ETA on Action Figures 8? Not sure if the status above means that it is being edited or…?
AF #8 is set for a February/March 2019 release.
Ah ok, so these are scheduled for one a year. Thanks.
