We've talked a lot these past few months about what Thought Balloons is. It's a place to experiment, a place to learn, a place to grow. Just as important, it's a place for friends, both old and new.
Today, I'm happy to announce that one of our newer friends, Derek Adnams, has graciously agreed to join the Thought Balloons family as a Tenured Writer. You surely remember his excellent (not to mention recent) few weeks as one of our first Writers-in-Residence, which obviously did much to endear him to us, but what we've loved just as much has been his sustained enthusiasm as he's played-at-home for pretty much every single week's pick these past few months. He's thrown down some quality pieces, and we're excited to see what he brings going forward.
But enough from me, I'll let Derek introduce himself once again:
"Derek Adnams remembered that he liked to write comics in 2012. Since then, his short stories have appeared in anthologies by Pross Comics, Indie Comics Magazine, Stache Publishing, GrayHaven Comics and Outré Press. He won the uCreate Comics 2013 Script Competition, which led to the publication of his 24-page one-shot SUITZ: Riot Act and he co-wrote Average Jo #1 for Hound Comics. 2015 promises to be his best year yet as a published writer, with over 70 pages of anthology work set to be released by publishers including Charlton, FutureQuake Press, Fat Cat Funnies and Free Fall Press."
Welcome aboard, Derek.
Don't forget that you too can play along at home by posting in the comments for each week's Why? post. We're always happy to see new faces, so don't hesitate to consider throwing your hat into the mix.
