Ray, you've been an unwavering member of Thought Balloons for a good, long while, and I know I speak for everyone when I say that things simply will not be the same without you. Your thoughtful feedback, excellent scripts, and warm demeanour will be greatly missed. It's been a true pleasure having you aboard for so long and we wish you every success in your upcoming endeavours. Don't be a stranger, my friend.
Of course, as this post title indicates, we are also welcoming a new writer to the family, the one and only Perry Kent. Attentive readers will remember his stay with us back in October and we're thrilled to have him come on in a more permanent capacity. At the time, he described himself thusly:
Perry Kent is a writer who lives in the Pacific Northwest. He has been making up stories his whole life and has been putting pen to paper since the first time he fell in love with a book. After recently discovering that people actually want to read some of his stories, he has been earnestly clacking away at his keyboard. Still fresh to the cutthroat, swashbuckling world of serious storytelling, he hopes to be putting his work out into the world any day now. When he makes brief forays onto the internet he can be found on Twitter (@TheOtherPerry) stalking other writers and comic creators.
Ray, it's been a slice. Perry, welcome aboard.
