Work on “Darkness over Cannae” is done!!
I finally finished the last illustrations - now for layout and printing, and the cover, of course! The book ought to be available around October.

Then I saw her reflection in the mirrored well,
And I looked deep in her face,
The old woman gone, a maiden now knelt in her place…
Thanks to six weeks of fantastic support, this project has made an amazing 11,000€ on Indiegogo so far. That is a staggering 565% of the original goal of 2000. We have print cards, hardcover editions, and a tie-in booklet as stretch goals, with contributions by some really exciting authors - see picture!
The project will run for another twenty-four hours.
Here’s your last chance to jump on board for an amazing ride, and grab up the hardcover and other goodies while you can!

The crowdfunding campaign is going absolutely incredibly - so many people are excited about the book, and together, we’ve already surpassed our funding goal and are at 230% - in just four days.
So stretch goals are in order! There will now be a lovely hardcover edition for every backer over 50€ - automatically!
Some of the greatest perks are already sold out - don’t wait too long ;)
A lot of liberating decisions on layout and media this week. Project going well!

Something cute, and something not to cute. Both featuring Hannibal’s bodyguard, Bomilkar.
First, saying good-bye to one of his daughters before the march to Italy (though he doesn’t know yet that it’ll be Italy); second, Bomilkar’s first week as Hannibal’s guard. Yup, it was a bad week for a bodyguard…
Bomilkar is my invention, and is one of the main characters in “Darkness over Cannae”. http://www.facebook.com/DarknessOverCannae
