I’ve been pretty bummed out by the lack of progress in trying to get an agent for my novel. I’ve lost a lost of steam and have seriously slowed down on sending out the query letters. That said, I haven’t been totally unproductive in the creative realm. While the novel languishes in limbo, I have been working rather hard on a new, multi-media project I call The Dead Regime. It’s a mixture of assemblage sculptures and short stories both set in a fictional universe in which a scientific mishap has opened a rift between dimensions and things start bleeding through. Each sculpture is to be accompanied by a short story telling the history or tale of that particular piece. The first piece is entitled The Shepherd. The sculpture and short story can be seen over on The Dead Regime website I have dedicated to the project.
