RAIN OF THE GHOSTS, BOOK ONE UPDATE: NICE THINGS FAMOUS PEOPLE HAVE SAID #2
In my on-going shameless attempt to maintain buzz about my new novel, RAIN OF THE GHOSTS, due out in stores and on-line on December 3rd, 2013 (but available for pre-order NOW on Amazon, etc.), I'm going to direct you to Rain's page on Amazon:
They've posted some quotations from a handful of folks, who have already read the book. More often than not, these are merely partial quotes, so I'm going to post the full quotation here over the next few days. Next up:
"The perfect book for the young adult reader." -Stan Lee
Stan "The Man" Lee is, of course, a legend. He was also the voice of "Stan" on The Spectacular Spider-Man. Oh, and... he kinda co-created the ol' Web-Slinger too.
There's only a little bit more to Stan's quotation here:
"On a haunted isle in the mysterious Caribbean, a 13-year-old girl discovers her magical heritage! It's the perfect book for the young adult reader."
But I mean, Stan Lee! Not too shabby, huh?
RAIN OF THE GHOSTS, BOOK TWO COUNTDOWN, Chapter Eleven:
In my on-going shameless attempt to maintain buzz about my new novel, RAIN OF THE GHOSTS, due out in stores and on-line on December 3rd, 2013 (but available for pre-order NOW on Amazon, etc.), I've decided to countdown my progress on writing the SECOND book in the Rain franchise.
I just finished writing Chapter Eleven. That's right, folks. I'm on a roll. Admittedly, this is a pretty short chapter, dedicated to connective tissue for a number of different characters. But still, I finished my first pass on it in one night! Doesn't that mean it HAS to be good? Right? Right?
Ummm this isn't really a question but I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate you and LOVE Young Justice... It's been my favourite show for over a year now and ugh it's just so amazing. There are literally no words.
I'm so upset knowing that one day it will be cancelled, although I hope it's later rather than sooner... I just wanted you to know that I love you and your work (especially Young Justice) and you've really turned me into such a fan.
Thank you so much.
Thank YOU, Riki.
(I guess producing YJ's not such a no-win scenario afterall.)
In Young Justice Issue #24,Seeing Superboy using the shields. Is someone giving them to him? To be exact, Lex Luthor? Or from a different source.
Didn't you see him get them from Luthor in episode 122? If not, go watch it. It's a really fun episode!
Dear Mr. Greg,
1. In Happy New Year Dick says this to Tim, "Just don't die okay. And no unnecessary risks to the squad. That's an order." Is this some subtle reference to Jason?
2. Why did you choose to exclude Jason from the story altogether? I understand that Jason't story is dark and sad, but what about non-comic-reading people who don't know who the Robin in the Grotto was? The world will never know about Jason Todd's sacrifice. (3. See what i did there?)
Okay, my Jason Todd rant is over. Nightwing out.
PS the show has gotten to be just outstanding recently. Give yourself a figurtive pat on the back.
1. ASKED AND ANSWERED.
2. If, as you suggest, we had chosen to exclude Jason from the story altogether, why would we INCLUDE him at all?
Everyone's SO impatient for everything to be included instantly. And then they also bitch when we include too much and THEIR favorite character isn't getting enough screentime because of it. Talk about a no-win scenario.
I've been a fan of Gargoyles since ever, but i didnt know it co tinued i comics till two days ago!!!! OMG!!! THATS AWESOME! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! but now i have a questio about gargate biology. I read that they go into heat every twenty years, on years that end in "7" but ...
What about just physical maturity? At what age are they physically mature, and Is this different from when they are seen as adults by their clan?
Okay, first, it's years that end in 8 not 7. (How weird would '7' be?!!)
Second, it depends on how you're defining physical maturity. The Trio were old enough to be considered warriors in 994 when they were 36 years old chronologically (and 18 biologically). On the other hand, Kermit and True would still have been considered children then, when they were 16 chronologically (and 8 biologically).
A few months ago my post in witch I said that I was looking forward to Mal taking on the roll of Guardian was deleted three times.
Now that it can no longer be considered a spoiler, I would just like to say YOUR AWESOME.
Mal as Guardian (and not a lame Herald or Vox) is the coolest thing! Predictable...but still cool!
But, since this is ASK Greg, not tell Greg, here is a question for you:
Does Jim Harper aprove of Mal taking his moniker and costume?
Does Black Manta really care about Aqualad? Or is he just being egoistic about his son success? How does Aqualad feel about his father?
I think those questions have been answered by now in the show itself.
So in a previous post I said I wouldn't ask a question, but it turns out I have one about the production/voice recordings. When Nolan North is doing an episode of Young Justice where is playing both Superman and Superboy, does he record their voices in the same session? Like in Auld Acquaintance when the Supes have interaction did he record both of them? (PS I checked the archives and I didn't see if anyone had asked this)
Generally, we record all our actors together and proceed from the first line through to the last. SOMETIMES, if an actor has more than one character he or she may prefer to do that one character first and then the other. But Nolan has a pretty complete command of Superboy and Superman. So, as far as I can recall, he'd just talk to himself.
FINALLY get to post my response to the last episode of YJ. First off, nice work with Arsenal, I like the laser arm and the attitude. The biggest surprise for me was seeing Deathstroke, did not see that coming. I love the design, but why doe he have a ponytail? Also, I like Vandal mentioning also havig kids, since I read Secret Six and thoroughly enjoyed Scandal. Finally, the Green Martian beetle? Very cool, I like the reference in his name; B'arss O'oom? Cute. But I'm not sure if he should be trusted yet. Guess I'll just have to wait & see.
Thanks for the great episode, look forward to next week's!
I've dealt with the ponytail already.
Oh, and it's spelled B'arzz O'oomm.
