Today I officially passed the halfway point of my first real effort in writing a long-form story and I decided that it was time to start putting together the more ancillary things like a blurb, pricing line editors,

And cover art.

And there's no better place than dA to do that, so...

It's a hard SciFi story dealing with interdimensionality so surrealism is okay.  The main protagonist is a 20s Asian female, physics PhD, science journalist. A secondary protagonist is a middle-aged African American male, photojournalist. Oh, and the other dimension has giant floating Portuguese Man O War jellyfish. And less gravity.

If you are interested and want to give it a shot, please message me what you require for compensation (money, credits, etc...). Please bear in mind that this is entirely the independent production of a slightly twisted Elementary school teacher.

Thanks!

Since dA has a mobile app now, I thought that I would post a mobile pic.

Cultural Awkwardness Made Me Change My Hero's Name

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 29, 2014, 10:08 PM
A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine who is helping critique the first draft of a book that I'm writing, told me that she really liked the name that I had given to my protagonist but asked my why I had decided to change it from what it was originally.

So here's my answer along with how I developed her in the first place.

I just finished my first short story in a very, very long time (maybe 20 years...I'm shifting from photography back to writing for a bit.) and would appreciate some thoughts & feedback on it.

Basically, it's a love letter to H. P. Lovecraft, set in the context of the Taiwanese cultural staples of night markets and fermented tofu. Yes, there are tentacled things and a touch of madness. It's ~6000 words, so a 20-30 minute read and it's paginated into 3 parts. It's also mobile-ready for reading on a phone.

All thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks much!

Who the heck are you?
I'm Brian.

Okay, what I mean is "what are you doing?"
I'm typing at my computer. Well, I mean by the time you read this I will obviously already have finished typing and saving it and will probably be doing something else... .

That's NOT what I mean! I mean, what makes you so special?
My fingerprints?

You're a jerk.
No. I'm a Brian.

WHAT DO YOU DO HERE AT dA?!?
Sheesh. No need to yell. Nothing anymore. For 18 months I was the Street Photography Gallery Moderator. Now I'm retired and enjoy being a genre Nazi.

I'm currently interested in stalking you. What are you outside of DeviantArt?
In a previous life I was a software engineer. Then the bubble burst on that and now in my current existence I am an Elementary school teacher. I was born and raised in the South Bay area of California (err...not Oakland, but the SoCal South Bay...Torrance, Hawthorne, Carson, etc... .). A few years back I took a software engineering contract in Taipei, Taiwan and moved 10,000 Km to the left. I've been here in the R.O.C. ever since.

Brian, will you FAQ me?
