Enter to win one!
I'm packing up a couple copies of Saltwater Witch, signing them for the GoodReads giveway that just finished (Almost 1200 people registered for the books, which is very cool). I'm including the print below, folded neatly inside the book. Just need to box them up and get them in the mail!
Okay, I have something special planned for next week, but you can get started now. Here's a sneak peek at a limited edition accordion folded print (signed series of 100). Each comes with a signed info document (see the single green-shaded image below) I have a handful of proofs and I'm still tweaking--paper's the main issue. It has to fold well. See my not very sharp, terribly lit shots of one of the proofs below.
Want one? Easy. Get a copy of Saltwater Witch, Seaborn, or Sea Throne (or all three) and then email me with a simple "I bought Saltwater Witch on my nook" or something like that. That's all. No addresses or anything else for now. I'll put your name into the drawing next week. If you win, I'll email for postal info and send you a cool 5x5 in envelope with your signed and numbered print and info doc.

Really like the way this one came out. This is one panel from the next set of pages for Saltwater Witch. It's about 12 x 16 inches, titled, "Oh, it's you again" --that's the demon Ephoros referring to the character in the center--a not not very nice character. Want it? All you have to do is spread the word--just a bit--about Saltwater Witch.
Here's the horizontal Saltwater Witch banner:
Title: Armored Roses and Ashes.
I'm reusing some recent themes for this one, but with a fist and an open hand, and all around her the world is ash--trying for both sorrow and triumph--with pink being the central color.
This is my submission for the deviantArt PiNKiTUDE Contest supporting the Susan G. Komen For the Cure foundation and its mission to promote early detection as the key to breast cancer prevention. Pinkitude is MGM's program for breast cancer awareness.

Here's another one for the author appearance at Pandemonium Books on the 20th. This one's called Modern Poseidon. See my last painting for the appearance/signing. (It's me, Joe Haldeman, and Jeff Carver).

Last week, that is. I'm a bit late in posting. I completed two short stories last weekend and had them in the mail and email by Monday. One is SF, the other is...not sure.
Just a quick post to ask everyone who won something in the last two contests if you received your stuff. Everything went out weeks ago, and should have reached you. If by chance--or my mistake, forgetfulness, or tomfoolery--you did not receive your stuff, email me and please let me know: firstname.lastname@example.org
UPDATE: I'm an idiot. Yup. Totally screwed this one up. I didn't remember changing the closing date to the 10th, thought it ended on the 9th, and sent out a winning email to Wendy (see comments).
Wendy gets the Kassandra and Ephoros watercolor.
Julia gets another painting. I'm working on something right now...should have it done by the weekend.
Wendy, Julia, email me an address, and I'll send you art! (email@example.com)
Simply put, I want more people to land on my blog. I'd like more people to find out about Seaborn and anything I'm up to, but as a first step, I'd be happy to get more people here.
One contest rule and some details:
1. Get as many people as you can to come here and comment on this post. You can be an individual, a blog, an entire web community. Think big, join forces.
Detail: If this is your first time here, comment with the words, "Naught but nautiluses" and who or what referred you--you can be your own referrer, yes. Then anything else you care to add, like maybe a caption to the image below (e.g., "Two doors down on the left, a big "M" painted on it" or "Bring me the head of Alfredo Garcia.")
The person/blog/online entity with the most referrals will get the original watercolor of the image below and a copy of Seaborn.
Description: watercolor of Kassandra and Ephoros (he's a sea-demon) for a graphic novel project I'm doing. (A little more about that here, even more in some later posting).
"Kassandra and Ephoros" --Watercolor and ink on 8 in x 7 in. smooth finish 178 gsm paper, signed, dated.
When does it end?
I'm going to let this contest run two weeks. September 9th
10th, I'm going to tally up the referrals--hoping for more than 3 or 4--and send the winner a painting.
