Kort verhaal tegen pesten

Mijn kort verhaal tegen pesten is op de website van Stichting Stop Pesten Nu geplaatst. Ik ben er supertrots op en als er iets waar ik mij sterk voor wil maken dan is het wel om jongeren met pestproblemen te helpen, doormiddel van mijn verhaal. Hierin probeer ik kinderen en volwassenen te inspireren om niet op te geven en door te zetten. Help elkaar en neem het voor elkaar op tegen pesters.

Het verhaal heet Belofte en is getekend door de Braziliaanse tekenaar Rodrigo Stella. Extra dank aan Robin Jones voor de lettering en Ivo Goeyens die heeft geholpen met de tekst. Voel je vrij om dit verhaal te verspreiden als je denkt dat iemand het nodig heeft.

There is some great news to tell. GrayHaven Comics has finally released the anthology You Are Not Alone vol. 4 & 5 on their website. My short story can be seen in the fourth volume, so what are you waiting for. Go get yourself a copy! 🙂 I couldn’t be happier to be published for the first time, especially writing a story against bullying.

Here is the first page of my short story Promise.

SUNSET short story

Sunset is a sci-fi romance short story, written by me five years ago. I’ve rewritten it over the years to get the best result out of it. I’ve approached indie-artist Mike Gallagher to draw the pages I envisioned for this particular tale I’m telling. Mike is known for the work he did for publishers like the American based Alterna and the Franco-Belgian publisher Rosencrantz.

About the story:
Samuel, the protagonist of the story, grew up during an all-out war between humans and the alien species called “The Hive”. After the war, the world has been divided into two worlds. One ruled by the humans, and the other part by the aliens. Samuel is in a relationship with the half human/ half alien girl Lucy. Things gets tense when a high ranking officer of the Hive, orders Lucy to choose his side for another upcoming war.

Page drawn and lettered by Mike Gallagher. The "I" in "Chris" is missing, but that will be revised in the final version. :)

My first short story (PROMISE) got accepted by GRAYHAVEN COMICS, a few months ago. Rodrigo Stella did the artwork and the editor of GH, Jason Snyder, was happy with the story and interiorpages we’ve provided. Looking forward seeing this published in the YOU ARE NOT ALONE Anthology. YANA is the fourth installment of the anti-bullying anthology.  I can relate to the overall theme of the anthology and I’m proud to be in the fourth volume! My daughter of 12 was the victim of bullying, as was I when I was her age. So to all of you out there being bullied. Don’t give in to bulliers! Stand tall and stay strong! Here is a preview page of one of the pages.
