ghost academy

Ghost Academy progress.....

I just e-mailed off the revised proposal for the first volume of StarCraft: Ghost Academy to TokyoPop and Blizzard, along with an overview for Volumes 2 and 3. I think this puppy is shaping up nicely. We'll see if the folks at those two companies agree. *grin*

An artist has also been assigned, but hasn't been formally announced yet. However, I've seen samples, and the work is excellent.

Tomorrow, I dive into "The Unhappy Ones," my Klingon wrath novella for Seven Deadly Sins.

remembering....

IN FLANDERS FIELDS the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

---Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918), Canadian Army
