Updates, Updates

I finally updated my website. For some reason I could not upload the new pages that include The Adventures of Molten Man, No. 1. [It's available now, btw! As you can probably tell by the fact that the cover art appears in the side bar. If you click on it, it's a buy link, too!]

I just love this cover! Even though my husband says real super heroes don't wear their spandex that tight.

I think if they had a butt like Molten Man's they would.

Anyway, I'm closing in on the end of my Beastmaster Pax submission. I think I've settled on a title, though I wonder if it sounds sort of like a Nancy Drew mystery.

What do you think of The Demon of Pelican Bluff? It really is the title that fits best. I've toyed with calling it The Avatar, but the reference is just too obscure.
I'll probably just be hitting 30,000 words and all I really need is a great last couple of lines to really bring it home. Of course this is the hardest part. I should probably let it sit for a day or two and something will come to me, but I love that feeling I get when I write THE END and I really want to get there. I love having finished things that I can submit and even though I know where this one is going, it's the idea that I've accomplished something, another story to put out there.

Ah well, back to the drawing board.

No. 1? Got me curious about future plans.

I shouldn't say anything definitive one way or the other, but originally I wanted the cover to look like a comic book since that's the style of the story. It needed an issue number, so I gave it No. 1, which makes it seem like there will be more, though I really don't have any plans right now to continue. If there's another superhero Pax I might do #2 and introduce one of the other characters as the hero in that story.

How 'bout Pelican Bluff's Resident Demon?

I love The Demon of Pelican Bluff. Maybe it does sound like a Nancy Drew mystery, but hey, what's wrong with that? Think it's great!

Speaking of tight superhero outfits. The other night I watched a few minutes of the Batman movie with Tommy Lee Jones as Two Face. Val Kilmer's tight butt in the bat suit gets some screen time. I was smiling at that. Think they molded the suit to him, or to perfection? Or maybe both? ;)
