A Note From Doc Wilde’s Workshop

Wondering about what’s happening with Doc Wilde?

You’re in the right place. As you may know, I pulled the series from Putnam in order to use the tools of the new indie publishing revolution to produce the books the way I’d originally envisioned them, including covers and a lot of incredible interior art by comics maestro Gary Chaloner. The original plan had been to have three of Doc’s adventures out by the end of this year, but as I’ve explained previously, this plan has fallen to Murphy’s Law.

I’m not at all happy with that, but the situation is what it is. Gary and I are working steadily on getting the first book, the re-release of Doc Wilde and The Frogs of Doom, out in time for Christmas. I’d say even sooner, but such statements seem to like to come back and bite me on the ass.

As you can see above (as well as in previous posts, and in my “Doc Wilde” photo album on Facebook, which is viewable by the public), the work Gary is doing is amazing, and well worth the wait.

In other exciting news, we’ve added a brilliant new member to Team Wilde, taking an important step toward global domination. My lovely friend Nydia Macedo has contracted to translate Doc Wilde and The Frogs of Doom into Portuguese for release in Brazil. The Brazilian edition will include the same Gary Chaloner design and art as the English edition, and will be just the start of worldwide availability of Doc Wilde’s astonishing adventures.

Welcome to the family, Nyd.

    Yes! As I said, I’m thrilled and honored to be part of the Team Wilde family! :o)

    It’s been a pleasure to follow Gary’s work in progress, that will add this cool spice to your book, and I know Doc Wilde and The Frogs of Doom will be totally worthy the wait. This is going to be… Good!

    It’s happening at the right time, and we all know it, that’s what matters. ;o)

    Any further update as we come down to last minute on Christmas 2012?

      An update is nigh, I’m just waiting to hear some answers back from Gary. At this point, I think having the physical copies of Frogs of Doom into people’s hands by Christmas is unlikely, but not impossible. But we’ll probably have the ebooks out on time.
