Production note extravaganza! Lost Tribe: Collected Stories and more

Regular readers of this site know I keep production notes and trivia on just about everything I write. I’ve been posting them since I launched the site in 2003, not long after my first professional comic book was released. Normally, I like to get them done the same week a book comes out — but then I also like to wait until I get feedback and hear what questions people …

Mass Effect Redemption production notes online

I’m finally beginning the process of getting the updates onto the site that I missed while in novel-land; good timing, too, with more news coming from San Diego this week. (No, I won’t be there after all, but that’s not the news!) Anyway, let’s begin with Mass Effect: Redemption. Notes are now online for issues #3, #4, and the trade paperback. That trade paperback is now available in wide release …

From a secure and undisclosed location

In case you’re wondering where I’ve been these last weeks — and where a few of the updates have been — I’ve been in heavy-duty Star Wars: Knight Errant novel mode. The good news (well, great news) is that it’s going very well, and will result in a lot more to write about here on the site. Hang in there!

Behind the tentacles of terror

And there are now a few thoughts online on the ideas behind Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic #44. How were The Beagle Boys, the Star Frontiers role-playing game, and the United States Navy tangentially connected with this tentacle-covered comic book? Read on, Macduff, and learn how! (Er… there are tentacles on the cover, that is. The comic book isn’t tentacle-covered unless you’re reading the issue while in the …

One (1) update, belated

Well, I sure as heck didn’t mean for it to be close to a month between posts here — but I’m working on several projects simultaneously, and it’s kept me busy enough that I haven’t had time to discuss those that I can talk about. And none at all to delve into the other bloggy things that bloggers do. So hang in there — and make sure to grab Star …

Filling in the gaps…

The production notes are online for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic #38 — and also for Star Wars: Vector Vol. 1. And in so doing, I discovered there weren’t notes yet for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Vol. 4 — so those are there, now, too. Not much to say — there weren’t many corrections in these later volumes. Whittling away, but writing is not leaving …

Lego! Lego my comic books!

A few updates on the site: • The notes for Knights of the Old Republic #37 are online, including a stranger look behind the curtain than usual, this time involving my son’s Lego set. See for yourself how the creative process really works. (Well, there is such a thing as Lego Star Wars….) • There are pages for Knights of the Old Republic #40 and for the next trade paperback, …

Humpty Dumpty reunited

And it only took the better part of a month, but FarawayPress.com 4.0 is finally about done. The only things that need to be added are the pages for the non-fiction books, and there may be a few odds and ends still missing. But the production notes for everything should now be there. And, no, I regret that does not include notes yet for the RPG supplement or KOTOR #33. …

Hitting “reset”

OK, sorry for the intermittent presence online lately — it surely wasn’t planned. Here’s the scoop: The database that was running my Faraway Press publishing site, my Comics Chronicles site, Sword & Sarcasm, and Maggie Thompson’s site was doing a fine job — until it wasn’t. For some reason, at the end of August, it went into a computerized funk and the none of the ministrations of People Who Know …
