Texas Scottish Festival And Highland Games


May 4th through the 6th will mark the 26th year that clans have assembled in North Texas. I got a chance to go about three years ago and had a great time, though the weather was a little warm. When you sport the largest pub tent around, the weather tends to take a backseat. Great food, music, and Highland games are to be had, so if you get a chance, go see what you’ve been missing.

tilney1previewPutting out this news release for a friend of mine. He’s one of the hardest working men that I know, whether he’s working or out and about at the conventions. Be sure and check out some of his earlier works, also.








“The Trials and Tribulations of Miss Tilney”

A new comic series by Dusk creator, David Doub debuting April 30!

Plucky cub reporter Henrietta Tilney sits face to face with accused mass murderer Lord Beowulf Harwood. An interview she hoped would launch her writing career soon explodes into a whirlwind of deadly adventure, taking Tilney and the mysterious Harwood across Victorian London.

David Doub is the author of acclaimed comics such as “Dusk” and “Mystery Masque” and has been a guest author at conventions across the country including Phoenix Comic Con, Animefest, and Saboten-Con. His translation of the classic penny dreadful into a suspenseful comic series is the latest offering from the author who has built a reputation for crafting fast paced and nuanced stories featuring strong and complex female lead characters.

The artist on The Trials and Tribulations is Sarah Elkins, who just recently was in Womanthology. With Joamette Gil and Danielle Alexis rounding out the amazing art team working on the comic.
