This was a challenge accepted.
Didn't win though, but it proved I could still get through with my own stories. This was actually fun since I have so little time and with a shortage of funds, I pushed hard just to see if I could produce something worth while.
The idea is to stick to my guns and do what I want readers to see. getting this out means I could use some of my old illustrations (what's left of them) and still draw new ones. This is a one-off and mainly to claim them as my own.
Writing was harder.
But as they say, if you are having fun doing it, it's not work at all.
