Blood Work has been out for a while, and the word is that Blood Crime will be out October 31st. Yay! I’ve been waiting for ages for this to come out, having finished the script over a year ago to allow for the original artist’s slow pace. But alas, he was unable to take on the project despite my efforts, so Gemma, the woman who did the coloring in Blood Work, took on that responsibility, and the style remained unchanged. I am delighted with her work, and it all turned out fabulous.
Like Blood Work, this one has a few special add-ins at the end where you can see an actual page or two of script and how it was translated to pictures. I don’t plan on going anywhere to celebrate the release for Blood Crime, but I will try to arrange at least signed books through Nicola’s. More on that as we get closer to the release date.
I had a great day yesterday at the plotting, and had a huge surprise when Rachel got caught by a curfew and had to go home on horseback . . . through the ever-after on the surface. I have got to paint the picture of Ivy with her cup of coffee, blearily staring out the kitchen window and shouting, “Why is there a horse in the graveyard?” Can’t you just see it? The sun catching the horse’s whiskers and the steam from her breath. Pixies darting over her and her ears going back when they got too close? Yes . . . I can see that.
