Raphael and Gabrielle- Playing Card

It’s been a while since my last post.   But been busy preparing GOD GAMES for a December 2021 eBook launch.  To that end, I’ve commissioned Jon Stubbington to create images of key GOD GAMES characters that shows their relative roles in the story.   Wanting to have fun with the book title, I decided to present the characters as playing cards.   See the post, “A New Book Cover and a Dark Side,” on how that idea…

Sorry for my short writing hiatus this past week or so, but I was drafted to do some heavy (and free… sigh) videography work for my family’s grand Zoom Family Reunion event. It was a smashing success! But in between breaks and the working to 5:30AM sprints, I thought about what’s in a story.
