She visits her new inheritance in hopes of coping with her loss, but instead she meets the ghost of Whitney Pierce, a young girl who died in the 90s. Alex hopes whatever magic lies within the old arcade will allow her to see her dad, too. But when Alex touches an old Star Wars pinball machine, she realizes she’s reliving the chilling past decades of the arcade. A once safe haven turned murder house. Spirits both good and evil are being released with her every touch, and she becomes trapped inside. If she can’t find a way to settle the spirits, the arcade’s gruesome past may swallow her whole.

Status: First draft
17 yo Mackenzie has dreamed of competing in the Draft Games since she was nine. It’s the biggest esports event of the year, but when her dad up and ghosts her whole family, her motivation for earning a spot to compete on the main stage is even greater this year. He’d coached her for years to rival the boys her age, and she’s certain all the media attention will bring him back to her. There’s no way he’d miss such a moment, even if he’d since abandoned her.
But when Mackenzie makes the esports draft, she learns her father left for a reason. Draft Games isn’t what it seems. As amateur gamers compete in the world’s most televised tournament for their favorite war shooter, government scouts are looking to draft them for an actual war using the game’s technology. And her father’s been helping them. Mackenzie must decide whether to be on the wrong side of war, or risk her family’s life to expose the tournament’s truth.

Madison O’Malley was just a soldier who enlisted to rebel against her estranged family—until the Fallen came. The hideous creatures sought the extinction of the entire human race, and they didn’t even need to lift a finger to wipe out over 80% of the population. The Fallen summoned the dead from their graves to kill like something out of an old horror flick. Unlike the movies, you didn’t get infected from a scratch or a bite, you simple had to die. Every dead body on Earth was reanimated with magic, and Madison and the rest of the survivors had to fight against their dead loved ones to try and find a weakness in the Fallen.
Currently working on a game plan to crowdfund the Extinction comic book project. I have an artist who assisted me with five pages to pitch the comic. I will write the series—most of the issues are drafted out—but I need to be able to pay my artist for his time on illustrating, color, and lettering. I’ll post again once I’ve worked out all the details. Here are some of the pages:
