The Dimmer Stars blog

I’ve been doing lots of work on the outline for my novel, the Dimmer Stars, and it’s coming together quite nicely, so I’d like to announce that I created a Tumblr for it, right over here.

The Dimmer Stars is about a lesbian Jack Russell Terrier named Mo who can become invisible at will. The story follows her from dramatic, mountainous Colorado to isolated small-town Louisiana as she searches for the origin of her powers and navigates passionate relationships, all while trying to escape painful memories. The past, however, has a way of sneaking up on people…

(I mean, come on, Mo… didn’t you ever watch the Lion King?!)

There won’t be much regular posting for a while, but watch the blog if you’d like to eventually read the story. Until then, I’ll post small snippets of writing and reblog art of the characters.

"Suffering Heart"

Finished! I did play around a bit with fur texture, which you can only really see if you zoom in, but mostly I decided today was not the day for realism.
The numbers are from the Ennegram personality system: my main type, wing, and directions of stress and integration. Read more and take the test here!

1 - WIP of Mino representin’ all my Enneagram numbers.

2 - Raccoon chick who doesn’t know what to do with her hands if she’s not rummaging through trash playing video games. She’s potentially the main character in a story/comic for when writing about Mo gets too dang depressing.

Another question! I felt like drawing Mino nude, but Facebook got a less-suggestive version. :-p

The first couple questions I answered this evening… yay! A fun way to put off doing the thing I should be doing.

Ask me (or my characters) a question!

I’ve always wanted to try that thing where people ask you a question and you answer it with a drawing. So, ask me questions, if you so desire! Alternately, you can ask my characters anything, if you are familiar with them: they’re Mo, Lacey, Lucinda, and Will.

Another spotting sheet, this time for the lovable Mo!

I’m working on a “Mo Spotting Guide” because I had so much fun doing one for Mino. Mo’s silhouette looked cool, so I decided to play around with the colors a bit…
