Catching Up

So, a lot of new things going on. We moved again, out of our rental house and into one we bought. We’re out in the country (as much as LA has “country”) and I love it. The view of the mountains is terrific. You can hear the frogs and crickets in the evening. There are coyotes around but we try to be mindful of them.

‘TIL DEATH and BROTHERS are long gone. Brenna O’Brien was kind enough to post a link on my Facebook page to an article on The Onion that speculated about the creative impulse behind the fourth season of ‘TIL DEATH. They got it remarkably right. Give it a read here if you like but be forewarned, I think it’s probably adults only. I’m frankly stunned that anyone gave the show enough thought to write such a long and considered article.

I know, I know…

My last post was in August of last year and I’m not proud. My only defense is that I’ve been busy, but it’s a poor one. So, to quickly catch you up, I’m still working on the TV show ‘TIL DEATH. We have three more episodes to shoot and then it’s the end of the season. Fox has aired the first three episodes and the rest of them have been sitting on the shelf. My understanding is that they’re going to start airing at the end of the month at 7:30 on Sunday. You might have trouble finding them, because I think most programming guides list it as “Football Overrun.”

And so it goes…

US Paperback release of book one — NIGHTMARE ACADEMY: MONSTER HUNTERS

Bunch of cool new things happening. First off, some more art for you from the always brilliant J.P. Targete. This is from Book 3 (MONSTER WAR). I know folks in the US don’t have the book yet, so I’ll try to keep spoilers to a minimum. I’ll only give you the title… MONSTER PINCH. As always, click a couple times for a bigger version (and check out what he’s holding in his right hand…)

I get asked a lot if the UK version of MONSTER WAR (now available) is the same as the US version. It is — with a few small changes. It has been slightly adapted for a UK audience, so a few of the terms are different. For instance, “mother” is replaced by “mum”. Other than stuff like that, the books are pretty much identical.
