Nick’s Upcoming Personal Projects

How to Write Manga!

The third in my books on writing comics, this entry will focus on how to write Japanese comics, commonly known as manga.

Expected Fall 2024

’40s NYC Hardboiled Detective Novel

The idea to this hardboiled detective novel came to me years ago under the title, “The Creature that Bled Luminous Toxin.” It follows a tough, burnt-out detective in 1940’s NYC struggling to cope with the rapidly changing times… and cultists trying to summon a demon to take over the city.

Expected – who knows, I never have time to work on it. But I really want to get back to it.
