SALT WATER MONSTER

I just had an idea regarding my reverse engineered crocodilian in my dinosaur series. Anyone who has watched a nature documentary knows that the saltwater crocodile is capable of swimming in the open ocean. The average size of a saltwater crocodile is around 17 feet in length and weigh up to 1.1 tons. Imagine a crocodilian that is more than twice the size and weighs five times as much swimming in the open ocean. Fossil records prove that some crocodilians evolved to live in the ocean like the plesiosaurs, pliosaurs, ichthyosaurs, and mosasaurs. It would make sense for my reverse engineered crocodilian to be able to swim in the sea as well. Next time you go fishing in the sea, keep an eye out for something big, scaly, and hungry.

THREE BOOKS AT ONCE!!!

Currently, three of the illustrations for my dinosaur book are complete and there are thirteen more to go. At this rate, I estimate they will all be done in a matter of months. Fortunately, while my illustrator is hard at work, I have other projects to occupy myself with. I am currently working on three books at the same time. One book is my second dinosaur book, one is my second superhero book, and one is my third fantasy book. I have been dedicating roughly one and a half hours a day on each one. So far, I have reached about twenty pages in each book and counting. Who knows? If I keep this up, I may have more than one book ready for publication by the end of the year or shortly into next year. It has been a fun and engaging process and it has kept me busy while my illustrator works. I will keep you updated on any further developments.

MY ILLUSTRATION THOUGHTS

As my illustrations for my dinosaur series are being made, I am left in a very intriguing state. Since my writing career started, I always wanted to have my books illustrated. After countless failed attempts, I am finally in the process of having this particular wish become a reality. The creation of my illustrations is significant to me on a personal level because my readers will not only envision my imagination through my writing, but they will also see my imagination take physical form through my illustrations. These particular illustrations are special on a personal level because they are depicting dinosaurs, which I have been a fan of since the day I was born. With things going so swimmingly with my illustrator, I am thinking of having illustrations done with my future books in the days ahead.

THIRD ILLUSTRATION COMPLETE!!!

My illustrator just finished the third illustration for my dinosaur series, which features my fictional species of pterosaur or flying reptile. This creature is the undisputed king of the skies over Kaligen Island, the largest flying animal since the Azhdarchid pterosaurs of the past. With this picture complete, we will move on to the super sized crocodilian. I will keep you updated on further developments.

THE ORIGINAL TYRANT LIZARD

“Big things have small beginnings.”

David, Prometheus

The Tyrannosaurs have always been one of the most iconic family of dinosaurs ever to walk the Earth. However, their ancestral evolution largely remained a mystery until recently. Two years ago, the earliest ancestor of the Tyrannosaurs was discovered. This animal was no larger than a deer and was built for speed. Its name became Moros intrepidus, which means “harbinger of impending doom”, which is a fitting name considering what this creature’s descendants would one day become. Due to this discovery, experts theorize that Moros intrepidus lived in the shadow of larger carnivorous dinosaurs such as the carnosaurs. However, when the large theropods fell into extinction, Moros intrepidus and its kin wasted no time filling the power vacuum. Over the course of 16 million years, this one small predator evolved and diversified into over a dozen species of powerful predators including Tyrannosaurus Rex itself. This goes to show that even the mightiest of beasts come from the humblest of origins.

SECOND SUPERHERO BOOK: THE FIGHT CONTINUES!

While I have not established any actual chapters in my second superhero book yet, I have been making progress with some big scenes. I am currently writing the completion of the main supervillain’s transformation. Now, he is engaging in an army of thousands of enemies. As he fights, one power awakens after another, gradually making him more formidable than he was before. It has been interesting writing these scenes from the point of view of a supervillain, which I normally wrote in a one-dimensional sense in the past. This time, I am adding more depth to the character especially the desperation he feels when fighting hordes of foes.

THIRD FANTASY BOOK (TAKE FOUR): CHAPTERS 2 AND 3

I have reached the second and third chapters of my third fantasy book. I am pleased to report that this fourth attempt at writing it is becoming a much more cohesive story than my previous attempts. I just hope I can keep it up. The main character’s companions have been introduced and we are about to be exposed to the dysfunctional relationship he has with his betrothed. Overall, the writing process has fun and engaging and I look forward to continuing with this project.
