Every once in a while we get to work with an artist who is creating an illustration of a new character. This is a collaborative process involving the artist, the author, Thinking Ink, and a graphic designer. It’s fun and exciting to see a character come to life in this way.
Here’s a sneak peak at the initial sketch by Ivreese Tong for the character Izy from The Hereafter Bytes by Vincent Scott. This sketch will become a full color illustration to go with a flash fiction story from Vincent that we’ll be publishing on a postcard. That’s our Flashcard format—flash fiction paired with art on a postcard that you can send in the mail.
This project started out as a stretch reward for our Kickstarter backers, but it’s turning out so well, that after the backers get their rewards, we’re going to keep stocking postcards and they’ll be available for purchase.
Thinking Ink Press is happy to announce our newest book, Beyond the Fence: A Short Collection of Stories by Marilyn Horn. The stories in Beyond the Fence explore worlds both ordinary and extraordinary with characters who haunt the imagination. Marilyn Horn’s short fiction has appeared in many literary journals and her story “Don’t Mind the Vet” was nominated for a Best in the Net award.

Return of the Son
Don’t Mind the Vet
