Always remember when dealing with accountants, dull and boring is not the same as stupid. Loose threads get snipped as betrayals come to the surface in the heartwarming bloody climax of Vampire Holidays.   
I was enjoying the series, but reading this final chapter is what made me fall in love with it.  All the little details align in a deeply satisfying manner.
From Vivid Publishing just in time for Valentine's Day, snag VH5 on Kindle, nook, e-book format of any type for a buck:

And if you're behind, catch the first installment free:   https://vividpub.com/JBT 
The whole bloody romance begins and ends with Valentine's Day.

Convention news- the Vivid Publishing team is being welcomed to Megaplex this year.


We were looking for a good venue to do something special, and we found it- in the Dealer’s Room this year, we'll run a playable sample of the Dreamkeepers video game. 


Come visit Dave, Liz, Geo, Bone, and possibly more Vivid authors, and give the video game sample a whirl while you’re at it.
I wouldn’t call it a full demo, but you will be able to run around as Mace and get a sense of the game’s kinaesthetics. 


You’ll also be able to check out David’s exclusive panel on Crowdfunding, tips to dodge failure and achieve success. 


All this in a tropical paradise resort.


...Admittedly I may have more than business on the mind in my excitement to be at Megaplex.


Anyone else who can make it, we’ll love to see you there! Bring your sunscreen, it’ll be bright by the pool.

You scared her!


#Animation test, my first done entirely in @clipstudiopaint and I've never had easier in-betweens.  Onionskin is glorious.  The Dreamkeepers animated short, video game, & the 2020 'Vivid show' just got a big step closer.

Why should podcasters and youtubers have all the fun?  Vivid Publishing is founding a program that sponsors…
Artists!

Everyone say hello to the talented traditional artist, https://twitter.com/MURAZAKI9  


Insider-level backers voted on what she would be creating: fresh new art of Vi!
In addition to a Vivid commission, sponsored artists are granted access to the Dealer System, where they can earn revenue when people use their coupon code.   
 
So if you’d like to send Murazaki something for the tip jar, visit our store, pick out some high-quality merchandise, and remember to use the code “MURAZAKI” at checkout and save 5%.   

(Note- normally available only at conventions, we just added the poster ‘Cast in Shadow’ to the Vivid store: https://vivid-publishing.mybigcommerce.com/poster-cast-in-shadow/ )

As Vivid has more titles to offer, we look forward to sponsoring more artists. We'll be sure to show off Murazaki's new Vi art when it's ready!   

Read what you want.  
Think what you want.

Cut free, and be Vivid.

We polled the readership asking where you wanted us. Over a hundred votes, thank you! 
 
Anthrocon won by a landslide.
 
Those who were excited to meet us there, bad news.
 
Last year we were excluded, but it was the very first time AC staff took control of curation, so oversights were understandable. Thank you to the readers who took the time to get in touch after missing us. It was both heartwarming and painful to hear our absence left a hole in your experience.
We heard folks say they couldn’t find their usual friends, as our table had become the de-facto rally point, and now everything felt like a disjointed mass of strangers.
 
It felt bad over here too.
 
We’re told readers also e-mailed AC staff to politely explain our presence was desired. Plus in 2020, the dealer’s room has twice as many tables as ever before. So we had high hopes of reuniting with you this summer.
 
Staff declined our application. All those votes, I figure I better have some kind of explanation for everyone. I asked why they curated us out again, and why they were policing table-sharing so vigorously. They told us that there simply wasn’t enough room, and that they earnestly wanted our participation. 
 
The curator who had us blocked on social media apologized when we pointed that out, saying it was a mistake caused by a blocklist. We accept their apology without reservation, and thank them for reversing the error. But none of this brings you, me ‘n Liz any closer together, so let’s move on.
 
It was a fantastic 12 years. I know many marvelous people that I never would have encountered otherwise. We got to be there from the ground floor, the very first year Anthrocon was in Pittsburgh, and it’s been a thrill to watch the event flourish as more people discover their interest in the genre. 
 
We’re planning to cut down on conventions overall. 
 
Vivid is onboarding new authors, Dreamkeepers is growing into tabletop, video games, animation- our production time is becoming ever-more precious, and we must spend it wisely. 
Even so, we hope to maintain one or two core events every year, where readers can trust that we’ll be there to greet them with a wave of the red hat and a smile. I don’t want to roll the dice on waitlisting or other gambles. We want to maintain a tradition you can rely on, to make travel planning that much simpler. One less variable to worry about. 
 
So we’re trying out some fresh new things. If you’d like to try them with us, check our convention listing on the news page, and hop in our newsletter.
 
 
Thanks for everything so far, we’re excited for the next leg of the journey.

Struttin' her stuff.   Oldschool walk cycle for Namah, before Volume 1 was even out.  Feels good to be planning a return to #animation.   Archive binge available here:  http://dreamkeeperscomic.com/Intro.htm

Relaxing Prelude Vi Commission Sculpt
I made a few figurines like this back in 2011, gifts for employees.  I mentioned it in passing, and a client appeared interested in obtaining her.  Making Vi from the Prelude print is a delight, couldn't pass it up.  She's about 8 inches long and 5 inches wide.  I need to make one for myself!  If anyone else is interested, email  [email protected] for a price quote.  She lies flat on her back, but the back is also sculpted and painted.

Thanks for your patience!   Laptop crashed, but I didn't want to compromise on this painting...  The morning mist, splashing puddles, deeper pools and glimmer- not to mention, I think this is the first time we've seen sun-rays.  (Designed for the video game.)

Cowboy Bebop keeping me company the other night while the computer was recovering...   Building my own personal sublight death machine.  Even with the Vivid Battlecruiser behind us, pioneering is risky work.
