2019: A Year of Lovecraftian Horrors

“And with strange aeons, even death may die”
H. P. Lovecraft
from The Nameless City

Happy New Year, Everyone!

     A year in which I’m returning to Lovecraft Country a full decade since my first Lovecraft fiction was published in Planet Lovecraft Magazine. New books, comics, and art are coming, including Gentleman Cthulhu (gentlemancthulhu.com), and, unrelated to Lovecraft, a return to Chadhiyana.

     I wrote about my plans at length in a two-part blog post at the end of last year, so I’m going to keep this brief. (Though you’re free to read those verbose posts.)

The Theme of 2019: A Continuation of “The End of 2018”

(if you have not yet, read the first part here)

What can I say about the year to come? Over the past few months the projects which have developed and come together for next year have unwittingly and almost completely developed into a theme for 2019. Because of the pattern and potential I saw, and the number of projects that have come together all at once, I laid out a plan—a fairly specific one—for next year. Included in that plan are Chadhiyana, Gentleman Cthulhu, Dark Fire Press and some very valuable and exciting changes to my Patreon.

Happy NaNoWriMo 2018

Happy National Novel Writing Month, everyone!

If you’re a writer and participating, I hope the start of this month is going well. If not, well, I hope it’s a good month all the same. As I wrote a few weeks ago, I’ve decided to cut down on my blog posts for a while. I’m only posting once a month as I focus my efforts on more creative output. Again, I may occasionally post an extra blog piece or two on a topic I feel like writing about, but I feel I want to move away from writing about behind-the-scenes information as much, unless it’s necessary. And as it happens, there are a few updates I feel are necessary to dive into this month.  Read more… ›

J. M. DeSantis: Genius $11 Million Write-ist

J. M. DeSantis Blog: Genius $11 million Write-ist

I’m famous! I’m a genius! And I’m rich!

You read that right! I’m a rich and famous genius. These aren’t my words. No, I’m just quoting from two different sources sources. How reliable they are, well, I’ll let you be the judge of that.  Read more… ›

It’s Been a While…

J. M. DeSantis Blog: It's Been a While...

Since starting my blog back at the end of 2012 (following the publication of the first Chadhiyana comic), I don’t think I’ve ever let so much time pass between posts. The reasons for that are many, but rather than dwell on the past, I’d like to get everyone up to speed on the new, the old, and the behind-but-catching-up (and to do so in as few words as possible).  Read more… ›

No Such Con & The Final Days…

J. M. DeSantis Blog: No Such Con & The Final Days...
First, thank you to the students at Vassar College for their hard work at the No Such Con this past weekend and for inviting me back. I had a great time catching up with some people I met last year–both exhibitors and attendees–and speaking on the panels about Cultural Competency and Self-Publishing respectively (and a special thanks to Danielle Draik and Emily Ree for inviting me to the latter). There were a few surprises during the weekend too, but before I get into that, I want to point out to my readers that the final days are approaching to get your name included in the And They Call it Mummy Love collection as a supporter (deadline: 28 February 2018).  Read more… ›

No Such Con 2018

J. M. DeSantis - No Such Con 2018
Just a brief note that I’ve been invited back to the No Such Con at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York this year. Sorry for the late notice, but this is a small, student-run show, and the details took a bit to iron out, but if you are in the area, please stop by. I’ll be speaking on a few panels, and have my new Inktober 2017 Sketchbook on sale at the table (for the first time).  Read more… ›

For the Love of Mummy

J. M. DeSantis's Blog: For the Love of Mummy
Happy (belated) Valentine’s Day, everyone!

I know my blog posts have been coming more sporadically, but (despite committing to writing less about what I’m “working on”) I really have been busy working on a lot (as my Patreon supporters can attest to). Amongst those many things, and as I announced a couple of weeks ago, I’m putting together a collection of the And They Call it Mummy Love series from my web-comic, Gentleman Cthulhu (gentlemancthulhu.com).  Read more… ›

Show (Me) Some Love this Month

J. M. DeSantis: Show (Me) Some Love this Month
I know I’ve written sentiments like this before, but February and March are going to be full of activity. First off, besides the work I’m doing and changes I’m making behind the scenes, I’m putting out a new Gentleman Cthulhu comic in a month or two (which I’m funding through my Patreon this month). I’m also planning to finally have some news about Chadhiyana in March. And those are just the projects that people who are familiar with my work know about. So with everything I’m working on and toward, I thought it would be a perfect time to do something of a funds drive, especially for that new Gentleman Cthulhu collection…  Read more… ›

Time is Running Out

J. M. DeSantis Blog: Time is Running Out
The New Year has begun, and this one in particular is a special one (even more so than last year), because 2018 marks 10 years of professionally published work for me. In observance of that, and following last year’s reassessment of things, there are going to be some changes, some familiar things continued, and even a few new things on the horizon. All of that will be revealed in good time, but for now, time (and space) is running out to get a commission by mail from me before the first major change coming this year: my prices are increasing on all services!  Read more… ›
