Stuff I’m Digging in December 2022
Mega Centurions by
I’ve talked about Jon in my Newsletter before, (Click here to check it out), but in short Jon worked with Scout Comics to release his comic series Mega Centurion. The final book was just released. Go check Mega Centurion and all the rest of Jon’s stuff on his website: Jon Parrish’s Home Page
I’ve been busy editing my new MS, so reading has taken a back seat. Yet, I pulled this off the To Be Read Pile (TBR), Nnedi Okorafor’s Africanfuturism novel “Remote Control”. It’s a much welcomed break in between editing sprints.
The last few Newsletters I have talked about getting more into story theory and Robert McKee’s book was highly recommended. Even though it focuses on Screenplay writing (future project?), it goes through the essential elements of crafting a story.
