A project to help feed the hungry

I’ve always had a special place in my heart for those who suffer from hunger. And it seems at Christmastime this need is most keenly felt. To that end, I will be attempting to raise money during the holidays with my story Punch & Candy at Midnight.

A short story of 5,500 words, it was inspired by the Christmas cease-fire of World War I. The story revolves around a group of elves and goblins who are forced to fight every year. But this year, one small elf and one weak goblin sit down together and talk, and find out they aren’t so different after all.

The text is mostly complete and is now in final editing. I am also in the early stages of laying out the book. My good friend Wouter will be providing some interior chapter illustrations, including the cover illustration. The illustration above was a quick “sketch” of the original idea. 🙂

Stay tuned for more on this project as the end of the year approaches.
