'Harper Characters' Section Update - Maryanne Harper

Hello again, Internetters!

    As you may know, last month, I added a new section to the site, featuring character profiles and illustrations with the intent to put one or two new ones up each month through the end of 2017. This was begun at the suggestion of a fellow author, and is a project I've been slowly sniping away at over the last few months. Well, this month, it was necessary to put up two profiles, and here they are:

    First up, Maryanne Harper - Anchorwoman, writer, wife to Reggie Harper, and mother to Elizabeth Harper. Maryanne was first introduced in the short story "When I Met You" in December 2016 (which can be read in full as part of Amazon's short collection preview in the provided link).

    Next up, the ghastly specter of Maryanne Harper that has haunted Reggie's dreams since her death. This version of Maryanne made her first appearance in "Bully For You" in February 2017, and will make a return in future books (starting with "Among The Dirt and Bones" next year).

    The illustrations for these are definitely a little rough around the edges (due to time constraints first and foremost), but I'm quite happy with the way they've turned out. I'm willing to forego clean line work in favor of a faster produced end product. Not only that, but I also happen to enjoy somewhat sketchy lines.

    Anyway, next month's bio will come a lot earlier in the month (as will October's), on the 7th, to be exact. Here's a little tease for that:

    And that'll have to do it for me for now. I've got a lot of editing, rewrites, and artwork left to do before I can pull the trigger on picking my next big project. It's always good to have one foot in the future!

As always, thank you for reading!

      P.S. Don't forget to pre-order "Teenage Female", available on October 13th, 2017! Yes, I am a shill, but that's definitely part of this game.
