The Start of the Blog

Hello everyone! Welcome to the official production log for my new graphic novel series, "The Unknowns" which is currently in preproduction. I wanted to start this little log up to share with you all the progress I going through in producing this new series as well as a way to keep the memories myself! :-)

For now a brief synopsis of the series as it stands. The Unknowns is a mystery series following two kids, Todd and Chloe, as they work together to reveal a sinister secret that has been plaguing their neighborhood and town. I hope for the overall series to last about 6 books and to culminate in a rather big finale that ought to be quite intense.

Currently I am seeking representation for the book and the goal at this time is get it picked up by a publisher of young adult and children's lit. I have a completed chapter that I have been using as an example of what the book will look and read like. I think it has been my strongest work without question. I have high hopes that this book will find an audience.

Today I spent some time going back through the story treatment for book 1. So with McFlurry in hand and my cat overlooking, I got to work on the last draft. I've been working on this story now for about three years or so when I was wanting to develop a story that would work well for a tv show; just for fun. The core idea for the series has remained but the particulars of how the actual story plays out and the characters involved has changed quite a bit. I finally decided that I would like to develop this story as a young readers series of graphic novels about a two years ago. Most of last year was spent drafting up what would be the final intro and developing the look and feel of the book. The end of the year I completed the 13 pages including a cover.

So as things stand I will be diving back into the actual script this week. Should only take a month or so to bang out the rest of the first draft. I will share with all of you the trial and errors I will undoubtedly incur while putting together my new GN. I hope you enjoy. Let me know all of your thoughts. Here's a peek at the cover and a few pages from the book. Click the small picture to see the larger file.
