I signed up to Newgrounds about five years ago now. I've always been pretty obsessed with creative shit. I hung around the audio forum for ages, then the writing forum, filling the time in my year off after high school by writing short stories and putting them up here. This was my first taste of creative writing and peer review. I practiced my skills and hung around for a few years, and eventually the Newgrounds Writing Anthology was finished and I, amongst a small group of other writers on this website, had something physical to show for my work.
Around November 2010, I started reading books from a small publisher operating out of Portland, Oregon. They were weird, radical, counter-cultural. They were the Bizarros: wild and fun and entertaining as fuck. In November 2012, they published my first book, a novella called 'House Hunter'.
I wouldn't have this book if not for them. And I wouldn't have made it that far without first starting off here. I don't get on Newgrounds nearly as much as I used to, but I still check in from time to time. If you ever want to talk writing, just get in touch with me on here, or on my blog, or something.
If you're an animator looking to try something a little different, I'd love to work with people on a book trailer, or an adaptation of a short story. I'm also open to creating new content specifically for animation, although part of me knows most animators will just come up with their stories themselves. I'll just make note that my style is bizarre and surreal, and my writing is highly visual, so, you know, something to think about.
I'm with a small press publisher now, so every sale counts, and every chance to spread the word means a great deal to me. So here's a bit about the book:
Finding a good house is a house hunter's job. If you want a great house, you need Imogen. She's the best at capturing young houses and training them to be homes. But all of her skills will be tested when the Association goes after the mythical Jabberhouse in order to breed houses in captivity. With a mysterious helper, Imogen and her house fight to stay alive and keep houses free.
A bizarro adventure, with cockroach people, spider-cars, assassins, house-fights, and a big-ass castle stomping into battle against an ancient temple. House hunting has never been so weird.
And yeah, I know most of you are more into gaming and movies and stuff, as opposed to reading books, but if you decide to check it out, that's awesome. If you read it, I'd love to know what you think. And if you help me to spread the word (either by sharing a link on places like facebook or twitter, writing a review up on amazon, or even just telling people you're reading a new book), I would be sincerely grateful.
Here's to hoping 2013 will be filled with weird and wonderful and fantastically creative works of art.
