The first half of the year was quite outwardly productive with the release of the third year of Killing Time – Horror E-Rag(TM) issues. Then after that things quieted down. Killing Time’s fourth year will not begin this year (2011). At this point I have no expectation of when it will happen. I won’t get people’s hopes up. It will arrive when it does or it won’t at all. I have not worked any further on the serial story and I will not begin a new year of issues without that done completely in first draft this time. I will also have to do most of the short story work first. I’m keeping the submissions page open at Battered Spleen Productions(TM), but it’s all a chicken and egg process where I don’t count on submissions until the certainty of the E-Rag is resolved. I do not expect it would be any different even if I offered to pay a pro rate. That’s the way these things go. Time will tell.
R.G. Male’s Dark Corners made its transition to it’s new home. There are still miles to go before I sleep on that one but it’s been a mostly smooth transition. It was a fine year over at Learning Dark Arts. I created a number of tutorials. I posted throughout the month of October during Dark Corner’s “13 Nights of Hallowe’en” rather than taking October off entirely there. I made a fair number of images this year not even counting the ones from Killing Time. The big event of the year was On Dark Rhoads(TM). It burst onto the scene in April and ran almost every Saturday until December 3rd. It had a great run and you won’t want to miss what’s going to happen when it returns in January.
Okay. That is all I have. I wish everyone a Happy December/Kwanzaa/Hanukkah/Solstice/Yule or a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year. See you in 2012!
