Seeking Talented Artist

With "Necromancy For Dummies" completed (but still going through the self-editing phase) I'm looking for any talented artist willing to draw a cover for its potential release.  Please message me if interested!

Profile Information

I have a passion for creative writing, particularly in the genres of horror, science fiction, fantasy, and the ocassional comedy.

In real life, in contrast to the subject matter of my works, I am a funny guy who delights in making people laugh.  I may be misanthropic in my views of humanity as a whole, but I adore individual examples that argue against that view.  The human mind fascinates me to no end, whether for better or worse.  I don't so much pick apart people's brains; rather I revel in the journey through their psyche, what makes them tick, and (if I like them) allow them to do the same through my mind (God help you).

I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome at the age of 15 since AS wasn't well known in the early 2000's.  To no one's surprise, my autistic savant happens to be writing.  I completed a sixty-seven page fantasy story in the eighth grade years before I began reading recreationally.  Today I read to improve on my skill and to be of benefit to future authors.

If your seeking constructive criticism with a dash of praise if applicable, I'm the guy for you!  If you ask me to review your work, please keep in mind that I can't really bring myself to read anything outside my aforementioned genres of choice.  If you wish for me to step outside that, you'll have to REALLY grab my attention. 

Also: If you comment any of my works with a, "This is good please read my stuff", I will not do so.  It's nothing against you.  It's just counter-productive to why I love this community.  Give me something to chew on and then I'll give you the same courtesy.  Even if you can't find faults in a piece, at least tell me what you thought of it and why you think it's fine just the way it is.

 

And now, for your viewing pleasure, a list of my favorite quotes:

"The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown."  - H. P. Lovecraft

"I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity."  - Edgar Allan Poe

"Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win."  - Stephen King

"I do not love men: I love what devours them."  - André Gide

“Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn.

In his house at R'lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.” – H. P. Lovecraft (again)

"The Nightmares and Monsters I've fed are safer on paper than left in my head."  - Me  (PLOT TWIST!)
