I know I often comment on social issues especially lately. I think after having written The Z Factor and realizing what a mess the world is in, this has become a focal point in my psyche.

Presently I am in the planning stages of my next book project, Greetings From Karpland , a vacation in dystopia (working title.) The back story is coming together in terms of living conditions, while the main focus is a continuation of The Z Factor and addresses unanswered questions from the first book. I look at The Z Factor as a floor plan. I am also exploring different formats in terms of layout and presentation. Since my background is art it made sense that my first novel is illustrated, I toyed with the idea of it first being a graphic novel. As it turned out the text became the main focus and the illustrations assist the text.  I am looking to push this much further.

Needless to say this is a continuation of a very big project that doesn’t just stop at a conventional book.  It has grown in size in just about every direction imaginable while continuing to embrace multi-levels of presentation and thought process. This includes blogging as well as talking about other visual artists and authors I admire. They are the main contributors and resource of what stimulates this project.
