IT’S A GIRL

Maria’s been doing regular ultrasounds of Samantha’s growing offspring, more than usual for what is so far an uneventful pregnancy. This is, of course, due to the unusual nature of this being humanity’s first space gestation.
All the readings are in the normal range so far, so the big suspense has been the gender reveal. Maria has been looking closely at the images for a month now without seeing a sign of a penis, but she’s held off making a final determination. Now, she’s ready to conclude that Samantha and Dave have a baby girl on the way.
Back on Earth oddsmakers began paying off on the news, although some are holding out until the actual birth. Governor Argus issued a statement expressing delight at the prospect of a granddaughter. Samantha, true to form, kept up her usual duties as mission commander. She’s nothing if not focused.
Now she needs to pick a name.

Virtu/Noir

Just as a reminder, “Dethany in Virtu/Noir,” is an interactive novella featuring Dethany of “On the Fastrack” as she adopts a 1940s private eye persona to solve a crime in cyberspace. She finds herself in the middle of a gang war between two groups; one promoting online transparency and the other heightened data security. A crisis erupts when people begin to have their identities drained (literally).

Along with John Lotshaw and my wife Teri Holbrook, we’ve created a unique blend of words and images, available for the iPad. Readers will be able to make choices determining the direction of the plot, and we estimate that it offers roughly two hours of crime-solving fun. It’s yours for $2.99. Learn more about it by visiting its website here.

Vintage Kevin & Kell

Classic “Kevin & Kell” strips are now featured on King Features’s Comic Kingdom site. Go here, and pick up the action from today’s date back in 2009.
