Isis Graphic Novel Indiegogo Progress Report


We’re getting closer to the halfway mark on the Isis GraphicNovel indiegogo. And… we’re 1% funded with $378 from 16 pledges.

I’m gonna need to regroup if I hope to get this project funded.

With 34 days to go I got a long way to go towards raising the $25,000 needed to publish the first Isis comic book. 

I’ve been working hard promoting on social media to meet this goal. And it looks like I’m gonna have to work a bit harder to get this project funded.

I’ve talked to Bill Walko and he's offering original cover art from Isis and E'steem Series books as a perk. And he’s gonna do some sample pages to show readers what they’ll be seeing in the upcoming graphic novel. I’m hoping to share those with you

This project means a lot to me; I’ve always wanted to see a comic book based on a story I wrote ever since I was 9 years old. And I’d love to share a comic based on a story I wrote with you!

The Isis graphic novel indiegogo has 34 days to go! Help me publish the first conic featuring The Goddess next door with a Pledge today!

Isis: All That Glitters Now Available in Paperback & Kindle Unlimited

ISBN: 978-1790889167

Bling! While Isis is making a withdrawal at the Chase bank in Chelsea, she runs afoul of Golden Shine, a blonde bikini clad bank robber who likes to steal the finer things in life. Can the Goddess Next Door and Hell’s Aspiring Angel help the NYPD put and end to her one-woman crime spree?

If you like oldschool superhero stories you’re gonna LOVE Isis: All that Glitters. This one puts a fresh take on the old superhero bank robber story and shows how everyday superheroes serve the communities they live in. In an age of reboots, retcons and mega company wide crossover events I wanted to give readers a FUN superheroes vs. super-villians story. I had a lot of fun writing this one, and I think you’ll enjoy it too!

Isis: All About The Goddess Has a New Cover!


If you’ve been to Amazon you’ll notice something different about Isis: All About The Goddess. IT HAS A NEW COVER!

Recently I was contacted by digital artist Tony Qwade who showed me some of his digital art samples. And I liked what I saw from his portfolio. So I decided to commission him to design a cover for one of my stronger selling Isis series books Isis: All About The Goddess.

I really love this piece; the digital art looks just like what a live-action Isis would look like. Tony really captures Isis’ anxieties about being in the Next School’s art studio for the first time. And the ankh pendant she wears draws our attention to her face, the place where the story is in an artistic nude.     

One of my long-term goals is to refresh all of the old covers I drew myself with covers by professional artists. There were a lot of great Isis stories like Amari’s Revenge, The Ultimate Fight, The Beauty Myth and MySister, My Frenemy some people missed out on in the early story arcs because they judged the books by their covers. I’m hoping that when I put new covers on it’ll persuade some of those readers to start giving Isis series books a chance.

You can pick up a copy of Isis: All About The Goddess with the brand-new cover on in paperback or Kindle format!

The Isis Graphic Novel Indiegogo Launches TODAY!


With this indiegogo I’m looking to raise $25,000 so I can publish the first Isis graphic novel!

The comic I’m planning features the goddess next door taking on a bikini clad bank robber in a FUN action packed all-ages adventure anyone from 8 to 80 can enjoy.  I want to give everyone a comic just like the ones I used to buy off the newsstands back in the 1980s and early 1990s!

I’d love to get this comic out to everyone but I need your help. The costs for the graphic novel breakdown as follows:

Around $9300 for Bill Walko to pencil and ink the 62 pages of the:

51 pages Isis: All That Glitters Main feature,

And the 11 pages of the E’steem: No Good Deed backup feature,

$5000 to hire a colorist to color all of Bill’s awesome art,

$3100 to hire a letter to fill in all the word bubbles and special effects,

And the rest to pay for the printing, shipping and fulfillment costs to create the books and get them to readers!

If I can get this project funded it’ll be one of my lifelong dreams coming true. I’ve always wanted to create a comic book since I was 9 years old. Back then I couldn’t draw so well, so I started making pictures with words. That started me down the road to becoming a writer. And when I created Isis back in 1999 I originally planned for her to be in a comic book. 

I’m hoping we can get this project funded so that I can finally share an Isis story with readers in the medium I originally planned her to be in!
