Hello Everyone!

long time no talk! what a crazy couple of months it has been... so much has happened (as usual!)

So what's been up? honestly it's been a very hard year, a hard summer even, but I'm glad to be updating you. I went through a lot of shit esp these past couple months; I became extremely ill and had been in and out of the hospital, but I'm back on my feet! It was pretty scary actually...

so I woke up one day in the middle of the night covered in sweat and shivering... i thought maybe i ate something bad, but i ended up collapsing from this! the next day i was in the hospital and from then on i experienced the worst abdominal pain i'd ever felt in my life for 10 weeks. I eventually had too much trouble eating and started to lose weight, and became very fatigued and anemic. everything was out of wack. i became so ill i couldn't drive or work! :( and so many doctor and hospital visits, so much blood drawn with no answers. FINALLY, i went to a new doctor and specialist and had a procedure done where tissue was taken from my stomach and intestine (YUCK!) turns out I have celiac disease, and autoimmune disorder where your body attacks itself when you ingest gluten D: and so now i am on a super strict diet forever lol, but at the very least symptoms should clear up after adhering to a strict diet for a few months.

aside from that, I've been working again, moved to a new town, and am about to move to another... (life is crazy!).

Its been most painful to not be able to do updates with my comic. I switched to a new profession in the hopes that I can organize myself to be able to resume working, and I anticipate that I will be able to very soon.... it seems each time I wanted to get back to launching things, something would come up!

but aside from that, some great things have happened too. Connections, the anthology that I participated in came out…

and Dirty Diamonds is next! I'll post links to those things soon.

Despite any difficulties I've endured, however, I am glad. I have gained so much inspiration from these struggles. I want you guys to know that I NEVER stop working, even when I'm not here. NEVER. and I'm happy to say that the experiences I've faced this year are giving me a lot of artistic direction. I feel no doubts that I will be giving you something good soon, and I thank you for your patience.... but aside from me, what have you all been up to? please update me and link me to your shit!

Hello I am promoting my Christian Book series Seekers,

Seekers tells the story of Wilfride Beth Carter, a child born of  evil's fire destined to become queen of Hell however things don't go as planned when she is born with a powerful Ice God has given her, an Ice so cold she can freeze the air you breathe.   No one knows

why God has chosen the daughter of death(Cryptimus) to carry this power.   All they do know is, She has made up her mind and is choosing to follow him for not only has given a gift everyone wants but also has shown her things no one can explian.   Leaving everything

she ever knew behind, she sets off to begin in an era of Tribulation.
