2014 3RD QUARTERLY EDITION

GETTING REACQUAINTED WITH QPQ BLOGGING

Sunday, October 28, 2012 was the last time this blog was updated. During all that time in between since then, there’s been a number of pivotal events here at QEW Publishing that should’ve been shared, but weren’t. Now some of these recent past events and news flashes were avidly mentioned and posted about on QEW Publishing’s Official Facebook and Facebook Open Group pages, and even its own Twitter account, but it’s not the same as a periodic blog. So here’s another new attempt to rectify this shortcoming by exercising a substantive amount of discipline here at QEW HQ to dispense with this medium on a more focused and timely basis via QEW Publishing Quarterly. Following below is a careful summation of all of QEW Publishing’s in-house latest developments, successes, and setbacks that have occurred since the last posting of this blog.

--Quenton Shaw, Chief Editor

BLOOD ROOT QUADRILOGY

Progress on this special project has been terribly slow, but it continues to ensue. This is a novel that is an adaptation of an original premise created by Moya Jackie, who has officially commissioned QEW Publishing to extrapolate upon in order to produce. BLOOD ROOT is the first of four novels, comprising a vampire fiction quadrilogy series. Its length is currently projected to compose a total of twenty chapters. Chapters 1-9 have already been successfully completed.

BLOOD ROOT COVER SHOOT

Saturday, August 23, 2014 was the date of the final photo shoot session for the BLOOD ROOT Quadrilogy project. The purpose of this shoot was to acquire book cover art for the third and fourth novels in the series. Character models Jessica BrackenSteven Selvidge, and QEW Publishing’s special guest, glamour and fitness model, Maria Cedar, happily went through their make-up applications aptly by Abi Selvidege, who happily contributed her time and knowledge. Maria Cedar looked fantastic in the costume dress produced by dressmaker, Synita Luckey-Bergesen. Steven brought the appropriate props produced for the shoot and some others that helped with some shots. Each of the models then provided their stellar presences for photographer, Bobby Dee Grant, who had meticulously and expertly converted our selected venue into a suitable studio, which enabled him to produce numerous images for QEW Publishing to choose from. The cover shoot was held at the Teamore CafĂ© in Federal Way, Washington.

YO-YO PRODUCTION PROGRESS

 Again, after so many false starts and failures to actually get the production of this original 4-part superhero mini-series effectively underway, there has finally been a significant modicum of success. This is all thanks to its newest creative team of artists, penciling illustrator Chandra Purnamakelly Hatasus and inker Kelli Michelle Andrews (inker of VOID XANADU), who have completed all the pencils and inks for YO-YO #1.









EAT & RUN GRAPHIC NOVEL

After having Nick Olivo complete and submit every penciled story art page for this 75-page graphic horror novel, the majority of the inking and coloring remains to be completed. On the inking front, there’s been a successful completion of inking for pages 1-24, which lays the groundwork for the production of EAT & RUN #0, a special introductory and promotion edition of the graphic novel version, and where new colorist, Amanda Todd of Panduh Ink, is currently plying her dynamic coloring talents.

ZOMBIES MINUS ZERO

ZOMBIES MINUS ZERO #1 Cover
Penciler and inker, Kyle Shold, did a fantastic job on QEW Publishing’s first and only free and interactive web comic series, ZOMBIES MINUS ZERO, and his handiwork is finally now available in printed editions of ZOMBIES MINUS ZERO #1, which were debuted this year at Emerald City Comi-Con, and later showcased at the Crypticon Seattle. And even though Kyle has now long since parted ways with this project, ZMZ’s new penciling artist, Narayan Baidya has signed on to resume its productive momentum as he’s about wrap up completion of pages 1-8, which will comprise ZOMBIES MINUS ZERO #2.1. This is the very first installment of the newest web comic segment, which should available in later October of this year. So, to all of you Zombiephiles out there, be on the look out!

MAGISPHERE

Penciling illustrator, Narayan Baidya, has successfully completed pages 1-20 of this 50-page, 1-shot, action fantasy yarn with plenty of highly impressive results. There is still more script pages that need production and revisions, but it appears that can soon be completed. Holli Richey, the muse modeled as the main character featured in MAGISPHERE, is very excited about the progress that has been accomplished. She is looking forward to its completion in its entirety.











STRUCK SETBACK


STRUCK #1 Page 8 Penciled
Terrible decisions with prioritization have resulted in numerous setbacks with this comic mini-series ultimate completion. But some new decisions will be made to rectify this predicament. STRUCK’s penciling illustrator, Harrison Wood, has signaled that he’s still committed to wrap-up penciling for it. This is really the crux of the matter for steering it towards completion. Alicia Groom still remains the character model who is the muse for STRUCK’s main character.

FINALLY UNDERWAY
