Hey guys, this a call to arms, of sorts. I’m looking for a few folks who would like to be test subjects, if you will. I’m in need of some Beta readers for a set of stories I’m writing. I need people who are willing to read my stuff, for free, before anyone else has the opportunity. The downside, they may be a little rough, your job as a beta would be telling me what are the last few things I need to fix before I send the manuscript off to, Max, my editor. Please, if your interested in helping me out send me an email at email@example.com and I’ll explain more expectations, don’t worry, it isn’t hard work, if you can read and can be honest with me about my work you are perfect for this job. Like and share this post as well. I can use all the eyes I can get on these things.

Point Blank to take submissions
I have been looking at a lot of publishing houses and companies and thinking about what I want to do with my writing, and with my partnership in Point Blank Comics. And I’ve decided that I’m really going to focus on trying to get an online team together to make these comics I’m writing and by expanding Point Blank Comics as a publishing house of webcomics, e-comics (publishing through apps like comixology) and print on demand comics. An Indie Press if you will.
I have experience in self publishing and I’ve got an idea and drive. I think it’s a gripping idea that will get artists excited. The main reason for this is a simple one, almost all comic book publishers are closed to everyone but teams at the moment and with the comic book genre is bouncing back I feel the companies out there can’t handle the influx of people looking to jump into the business.
And, the mission is simple, I want to help cultivate talent and hopefully get us all noticed by one of the big boys. I’ve already set up as a publishing company when I started self publishing a couple years ago, for tax and legal reasons, so why not bring people on as a team? I don’t see any reason to not do that.
Announcements on submitting will be coming soon. We will be adding a new page on this blog very soon.
I just started on my next writing project. Here is a little log line for it.
When a man wakes up in a ditch next to a major interstate with no knowledge of who he is or who would want him dead he sets out on a quest to discover who and what he is aided by the only two clues he has, a strange brand on his right forearm and a uncanny ability to kill people with the slightest of ease.
Point Blank is looking for Artists
I have just finished the script for my latest 4 issue mini series. Worms is a horror story, a mix of Invasion of the Body Snatchers and Cabin Fever. It is set in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri and centers around Richard and his wife Mary Anne. Richard, a mountain guide is determined to get back to his wife before the Worms takes over their bodies.
