This is Raul de Parthon, your favorite character from the webcomic I’m writing. He’s a swashbuckler, a bon-vivant and the Dean of Vampires at a Military Academy in an Empire of Monsters. He likes dancing, fencing, gallivanting, and wearing a bigger hat than you. His favorite way to enter a room is via swinging chandelier. He has strong opinions regarding mustaches. He thinks that there aren’t enough “sexy” dances. He may have, at one time, owned a pirate ship. He’s made out with everybody.
Last week I fell down a story hole and did little else but write. Raul de Parthon and 14k is what came out of all that.
Natalie Kelly (artist!) and I are planning a webcomic. I’ve got Chapter One down, and Chapter Two coming along nicely, with further scenes and structure hammered out down the line. It’s a coming-of-age story that takes place in a Fantasy world. I like to think it’s like The Prince and the Pauper (one of the first books I ever read) meets Harry Potter meets Lord of the Rings meets your favorite YA book where everyone makes out.
I can’t wait to introduce you to the other characters. I haven’t had this much fun in a long time.
