Democracy, Inc. Novel

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 15, 2017, 3:19 AM
 Hey there, everyone! There's several people here on dA that expressed interest, so I wanted to announce that my husband's latest novel, Democracy, Inc. is now out! It's already getting some really awesome reviews. 4.6 out of 5 stars and 31 reviews in the week that it's been out!

You can grab a copy of it on Amazon here.

If you like dystopian, cyberpunk, or sci-fi novels, this book is totally for you. It's written in a YA style, but there's also 70-year-olds that are reading and enjoying it, comparing it to a lot of the early sci-fi that they grew up with.

He's created some awesome, witty characters and the world-building is amazing. Totally something I can see happening in our future.

You may remember the concept art that I did for it a while ago:

I also made the cover and this promo for the "Top 10 Reasons to Read Democracy, Inc.":

Check out the synopsis and such on Amazon here!

On my end of things, the last installment of the Calendar Gals series is going to be coming out decently late this time. Which sucks, because it probably won't be in time for 2018 calendars. However, we've been trying to adopt for the last year (and trying to have kids ourselves for almost 10 years), and just learned that we've been chosen by some birthparents in Utah! So things have been pretty crazy here, to say the least. I imagine that my painting time will decrease a bit, with much of it spent on my RPG commissions, but I'll still make time for some personal stuff here and there. We are SO EXCITED!!!

Artist | Professional | Digital Art


I'm an army wife, digital artist, and graphic designer. I'm just starting my foray into the world of professional illustration, after having focused on ObsidianDawn.com (my Photoshop brushes and other resources website) for 10 years. I'll still be adding brushes to ObsidianDawn.com, mind you -- in case you're one of my many followers. :) As long as I'm doing art, I'll be making brushes.

However, my illustration career has been neglected for too long. I stopped painting for a good many years at one point and lost a good chunk of my watchers, and many of the ones that remain are no longer active. So, anything you can do to help get my work out there is appreciated!
