Maya and the Return of Her Author

Hey, it's been a year since I last posted on this here blog! And I've got a good reason to post again! My long-suffering heroine's original comic/graphic novel (which I began work on waaaay back in 2004-2007) is finally undergoing a metamorphosis, resurrection, reimagining, rebooting... well, I'm working again! The core of IPTP Agent Maya has always been the graphic novel stories, with the books being "jumbo-sized" tales better suited in prose. Well, I got sidetracked, distracted and otherwise occupied by Neptune's Deadliest Rings and Moons of Ice and Fire and two things called Jaunt and Ether to continue the comics. And frankly, I was never 100% happy with them anyway. Too many compromises for too little gain and too much work. Now, with some better software, better writing chops (thanks to JauntWorld) and more computing power to drive my ambitions, Maya's official illustrated adventures are commencing.

It's still a little early to post images, but believe me, the characters are coming along, and as I'm satisfied, I'll post some teasers. This is very much a work in progress, but the years of dissatisfaction are fast melting away as I jump the hurdles that used to be mountains!

So expect a slight site revamp as those images become the new icons on the right. Stay tuned.
