I thought pyrofiends were about the size of a medium dog?
11/24/2020 10:13:50 am
They've usually been described as being the size of a small doll. Their first appearance in the series (Riley and Beck trapping in a parking garage) says something about the fiend slithering out of the tail pipe of a car. Apparently they've been taking their vitamins because they keep growing in height. LOL

So, first of all, the series is damned good, I have the first 4 parts and 4.5.

When i published my thesis to a journal i didn't have too many problems with illustration. Due to having posted self taken pictures. But, I always had credit given to my subjects through their research identifiers and their permission to include their likeness. Any used names were "street names".
2/26/2021 03:54:42 am
So, is mail a viable option for sending media along with the copyright info?
2/26/2021 10:08:15 am
And once again I can't reply to individual comments. Looks like i need to check that issue out as well.
2/26/2021 10:36:38 am
First of all, I was talking about EMAIL, and to send it via internet.
2/26/2021 11:00:43 am
Since I'm not sure where the fan art is going at this point I don't know how it's going to be submitted. It may need to be uploaded directly to another site.

I'm still confused about the colour of Riley's eyes and I want to make sure that an Archfiend has two sets of claws: hands and wings?
3/13/2021 04:54:20 pm
Riley's eyes are brown in the U.S. books and blue in the U.K.'s. The reason is the cover model used in the U.K. books had blue eyes so I changed that for those books. Either works.

Umm I have a few questions since I am trying to draw the characters..
3/24/2021 04:09:03 pm
Luckily none of my characters have goatees or beards as best I can remember.
3/24/2021 04:14:04 pm
Well thanks.. saved a lot of work.. and now..
4/25/2021 05:09:01 pm
Hey, I have been wondering what should be the role models for a few characters... for example: I prefer Ian Somerhalder for Ori, Christian Bale for Sartael, Ewan McGregor for Lucifer and Ian McDiarmid for Harper.
4/25/2021 08:30:19 pm
When I create a character they are not usually based on a real person. After I've created that individual then I might find photos that match my mental image of that characte, especially if that a character might be on the book's cover. I have no doubt that other authors work the other way around -- they see someone and then tailor their characters' physical attributes to match that person.
4/25/2021 08:21:16 pm
This is getting weird
4/26/2021 12:28:51 am
I like a story even better when it runs a movie in my head. A good book as you get into it, you don't even think about the fact you're reading, it just flows.
4/28/2021 09:46:42 pm
I’m that way as well. I “see” my stories as movies in my head. I did a little theater back in the day and so I “block” my scenes if there’s a lot of movement (or a battle scene). I helps me keep things straight.

I have written a poem about Ori, from book 1 to 4. So, If I were to share it to you, should I comment it down here or DM you in instagram?
9/18/2021 11:21:16 am
Probably best to DM it to me on Instagram. Ori is an intriguing character, that’s for sure. Also, when the new covers are revealed he will be on the cover of Forbidden. And, unlike in the books, he’ll have a short beard. I know that’s something you asked about in the past.

Hello, Jana. I have reread the series twice and it never ceases to amaze me. I was wondering if you could help how you got in contact with publishers or writers who would support your work. I am really confident that my works would take off. I have no experience in the publishing field though. Thanks. mad respect to you.
