Just over 2 days left on the NIGHT FOLK Kickstarter campaign, and I'm thrilled to announce that the project is already fully funded and still picking up backers. So provided we don't have an epidemic of supporters backing out at the last minute, the NIGHT FOLK project is a go!

Countdown to NIGHT FOLK

Only 13 days left to raise the money on Kickstarter to fund my first novel, NIGHT FOLK. I took a gamble deciding to finance the novel through a crowd-funding site and publish the book myself, and the response so far has been wonderful, but we're still short of our $5,000 goal.

The NIGHT FOLK project is a labor of love for me, a return to the kinds of stories I wanted to tell at the very start of my career as a comic book writer and artist all those years ago, and a return to the mythology I began with one of my very first comic book projects -- WALK THROUGH OCTOBER -- and continued in the Fade stories I wrote and drew for the latest incarnation of Negative Burn.

It's a very personal piece of work, and the first in what I hope will be many more prose projects in the future, including the Fade novel I've been working on in between comic book assignments.

(NIGHT FOLK actually serves as a prequel to the Fade novel and a bridge between WALK THROUGH OCTOBER and the Fade stories, with several characters appearing in all three in one shape or form.)

I've been posting a steady stream of updates on the Kickstarter project page, giving everyone a sneak peek at some the character designs, sample chapters, and the incredible photos my friend Ian Struckhoff shot to use on the cover of the book. There are even a couple of mockup covers from my friend and sometime collaborator, Michael Gaydos.

If you'd like to find out more about the project and how to become a backer, the NIGHT FOLK Kickstarter project page can be found HERE.

And if you'd like to read the first two chapters, you can read them HERE.

We have lots of great rewards for our backers -- digital copies of the book, an exclusive print edition, posters, original art, and a lot more. If you haven't checked it out, please do. The Kickstarter campaign ends at midnight, April 1st, and I can use all the support I can get.

Upcoming Appearance: Albany Comic Con

Still buried under Doctor Who pages, but I wanted to stick my head out and remind you that I'll be appearing this Sunday, April 17th, at the Albany Comic con.

They've got a great bunch of guests lined up, including Ron Marz, Jamal Igle, Declan Shalvey, Paul Harding, and many, many more. For a full list of guests and more information on the show, visit the Albany Comic Con website.

I'll be there all day signing comics and talking up the NIGHT FOLK Kickstarter campaign, which is ending in two short weeks. Time is running out, and we still have a ways to go to meet our goal, so if you're interested, check out the NIGHT FOLK project page.

And speaking of NIGHT FOLK, here's a little sneak peek -- one of the illustrations from the novel:
