Now that I'm a published indie author, I've branched out a little bit. I'm also on Goodreads, for anyone that's curious; you can check out my profile in the link below.

Current Residence: In the deep, dark depths of my own subconscious.
Favourite genre of music: Almost any kind of rock, techno, OSTs, and classical.
Favourite style of art: Anime (Shonen, Shojo, pretty much any style as long as the characters don't look supremely deformed or ugly), surreal, black and white (including contrast works), and watercolor paints.
MP3 player of choice: Headrush--because 'Headbang' is so last season's concussion.
Wallpaper of choice: Black Rock Shooter or Akira or Ghost in the Shell or any cyberpunk-themed desktop wallpaper
Skin of choice: The only skin I have
Favourite Cartoon Characters: Deadpool, Black Rock Shooter, Dante (Devil May Cry), Batman, Edward Elric, Roy Mustang, Kamina (Gurren Lagann), Sakata Gintoki (Gintama), Alucard (Hellsing Ultimate), and Moon Knight
Favourite Movie Characters: Jules Winnfield (Pulp Fiction), Inspector 'Tequila' Yuen (Hard Boiled), Brother Mark (A Better Tomorrow), Ken (A Better Tomorrow II), John McClane (Die Hard), John Matrix (Commando), Sergeant Hartman (Fullmetal Jacket).
Personal Quotes: Because (-INSERT WHATEVER HERE-) are cool; Real men stare at walls; What the hell is this, I don't even...; because I'm just THAT. DAMN. AWESOME; Hwunh?; That is BADASS; VICTORY WAVE!! *Waves arms back and forth*; NO, I do NOT like WWE!; Piss off. (Lots other sarcastic/cynical comments I don't feel like writing out)
Likes: Awesome anime with well-developed/thought-out/executed plots and characters; Drawing; Daydreaming; watching violent/dark movies; listening to music; ignoring idiots; back talking big-mouthed idiots, especially if those idiots are cops who don't know what the hell they're doing; ranting about things I like; coming up with new stories to write; writing those stories; constantly trying to surpass myself in everything I do; Grindhouse flicks and other intentionally/unintentionally trashy movies.
Hi, all.

So I'm working on a short, stand-alone novel that I might get published this month, depending on how picky I am when I proof read it.  It's called The Tea Party Affair.  Yes, I'm serious about this project (having written a little over fifty pages in a week--it's proving to be a pretty quick write-up).  I'm only intending on it being somewhere between 100-120 pages.  140, max, but I have serious doubts the page count'll reach that high.

It's about a group of partygoers who discover that Nancy Corbane, the trophy wife of an extremely volatile ex-mob enforcer named Kaiser Corbane, has been murdered.  On top of that, one of the partygoers was having an affair with her, so he's a prime suspect.  To make matters worse, Kaiser Corbane is on his way over to the estate, and no one can leave the estate due to their ridiculous paranoid feelings towards one another.  "If we all leave, the real killer will play us like cards and turn Kaiser Corbane on us!"  So everyone's stuck in this house, and nobody wants Kaiser Corbane to find out his wife is dead, because if he does, he'll kill everyone who attended the tea party just for being involved.  The partygoers decide they should cover up all evidence that Nancy Corbane was ever there while rooting out the murderer among them.

Yes.  I know it's got the title of an erotic thriller, the premise of a mystery thriller, and the execution of an action thriller.  With a little comedy on the side.  But fear not--the action will be more-or-less a minor characteristic in the overall story.  It should pose as a good challenge for me since all I've written in my official published career (well, except for the Clockworld one-shot... but that's eleven pages long...) is full-on action.  And then there's the comedy... I understand now that I can't do a full-on comedy... only a story with comedic elements.  Well, that's just fine.  We all have our strengths and weaknesses.  And I plan to pull off this little project with the utmost care. ^-^
