Earth Out of Place – a serialized novel https://tonij.com/2017/10/20/earth-out-of-place-a-serialized-novel/ https://tonij.com/2017/10/20/earth-out-of-place-a-serialized-novel/#respond Fri, 20 Oct 2017 18:11:39 +0000 https://tonij.com/?p=6455 Looking for more stories to read? Like science fiction that looks and acts like an alternate-present dystopia until you get deep into it? A few years ago, I wrote exactly that: Earth Out of Place. I’ve decided to post it in serialized form on Wattpad. It’s free to read, and the first few chapters are already up! You can check it out here.

Don’t worry, the steampunk cyborg zombies are tame https://tonij.com/2017/09/22/dont-worry-the-steampunk-cyborg-zombies-are-tame/ https://tonij.com/2017/09/22/dont-worry-the-steampunk-cyborg-zombies-are-tame/#respond Fri, 22 Sep 2017 21:37:42 +0000 https://tonij.com/?p=6443 The short story series I edited and wrote for, Tales of the Automazombs: A Desperate Plan, is available now on Amazon in ebook and paperback!

The stories within A Desperate Plan are set in a steampunk world gripped by plague that preserves its victims after death. To cleanse the land, inventors create a shambling horror that can devour infected flesh without spreading it further. It’s the best plan they have, since they exhausted every other option. But don’t worry. There’s no way these cyborg zombies (the Automazombs!) would ever turn on their creators.

Sound interesting? You can pick it up on Amazon.

After reading, I welcome your honest review. Reviews, on Amazon especially, help other readers notice little indies like me.

I love my bats! They eat the many, many mosquitos in my yard/forest.

This little monster is a character from a potential children’s book I’ve been toying with. I can’t remember if I ever posted the original concept art for him (like, an actual pencil and paper sketch!), but this idea’s been floating around my head for a while now. Maybe now that there’s a specific kid to write it for, it’ll get done!

off-hand drawings for my kid https://tonij.com/2017/02/12/off-hand-drawings-for-my-kid/ https://tonij.com/2017/02/12/off-hand-drawings-for-my-kid/#respond Mon, 13 Feb 2017 02:48:28 +0000 https://tonij.com/?p=6419 So, the little one’s 5 months now (!) and loves the white boards. Since she’s a little too small for drawing (she just wants to eat markers, not draw with them), I’ve been doodling for her with my non-dominant hand (I’m holding her with my left). They’re super goofy. 🙂

First up, a triceratops with a busted nose horn.

Next, a plethora of purple pigs.

And I took over my husband’s board to make something with each dry erase marker color we own. He added an Allosaurus who looks to be having none of this nonsense.
