In 8 Days: Matthew is Back in Training


Last year’s winner of the Joseph Devon Fan Art Contest, Victoria Spurling, gives us this painting. Here we visit with Matthew trying to get back into his groove after the whole zombie uprising thing has settled down to a manageable level. As Victoria said, “Trying to paint everything as pieces of energy was harder than I expected.” I don’t doubt that but I think she did an admirable job just the same. Come on back tomorrow for a new painting.

Book Two: Persistent Illusions is coming in 8 days.

Bring your friends on board, use the buttons all over this site to share, and get everyone you know hooked on Book One: Probability Angels.

Want an early start? Don’t mind eye strain? Persistent Illusions is available as a Word Doc right here. AND it’s open for The Great Typo Hunt. So you can help me stomp out those last few typos while winning fabulous prizes.

And keep in mind the prestigious Second Annual Joseph Devon Fan Art Contest is underway!

    Not a huge fan of this one but that’s because I’m not a big fan of Japanese cartoons….and this is what it looks like to me. I’m expecting weird string music and gongs to start going off…..and then this dude to go running across the screen with the colored clouds chasing him. I know people love Japanese animations and they have huge followings so it could sit well with tons of people.

    I can’t wait to read the book, am getting REALLY excited!!!

  3. I like her idea of energy – although I agree with Charles about the Japanese animation. This would work well for a portrait of Kyo, though! I guess the artist just likes Matthew most – who doesn’t? Can’t wait to see what he’s up against next!
