My Comics

I have quite a few webcomics: some are continuing strips while others are one-panel one-offs. Updates are sporadic unless otherwise noted. For my comics for writers and illustrators, see Inkygirl. I'm also posting a selection of writer-related comics (from all my strips) in my Publishers Marketplace blog.

If you're thinking of using one of my writing-related comics on your blog, etc., please see my Comic Use Policy.

 Will Write For Chocolate

URL: http://willwriteforchocolate.com

My comic strip about a house full of freelance writers who work in various genres. I'm compiling my Will Write For Chocolate and Inkygirl comics into a BOOK! Stay tuned. :-)

My Life In A Nutshell

My semi-autobiographical comic. I may eventually compile some of these into a book, but not yet.

 

Waiting For Bilbo

URL: http://waitingforbilbo.com

My comic about avid fans waiting in line for The Hobbit movie. Co-written with Shane McEwan, who worked on the Lord Of The Rings movies at Weta Digital. We're aiming for a mostly weekly schedule starting in January 2012. Comic will end when the second Hobbit movie comes out.

Writer Unboxed Comics

I post a writing-related comic on Writer Unboxed on the first Saturday of every month.

Here's a list of my comics on Writer Unboxed so far. Most of these will be going into my Will Write For Chocolate book compilation.

 

My Board Gaming Comics

Posted on BoardGameGeek and geared toward those who play Eurogames. I post a (mostly) weekly comic caption contest in the Comics forum at BGG. I'm compiling these into a book compilation for board gamers, and will also be including some of these in my Intro To Board Gaming book.

 

Nanotoons

I've done NaNoWriMo-themed comics off and on over the years. Some were hosted on the NaNoWriMo site and some were on Inkygirl. I also collaborated with Errol Elumir on NaNoToons in 2010 and will be collaborating with him again in 2012. Errol did the comics himself in 2011.
