The Axiom-man/Auroraman: Frozen Storm Kickstarter has fired off the launch pad and is already off to a crazy phenomenal start. Thank you to everyone who’s pledged support to these two prairie heroes. You’re going to be in for one heck of a ride.
This Kickstarter supports not only Frozen Storm, but also The Adventures of Auroraman No. 1!
I co-wrote the mini comic at the back of Auroraman No. 1 that will lead into Frozen Storm, a superhero novel with action and suspense start to finish. Fans of The Axiom-man Saga won’t want to miss out on this adventure.
It’s been a pleasure working with Jeff Burton on this project and I can’t wait to share with you the story we concocted for Frozen Storm.
There are days in this business where things get tough and you wonder why even bother with all this stuff? It doesn’t matter how successful you are. Every writer hits that wall of “what’s the point?” and then has to deal with it. Then stuff like this comes into your inbox and you’re reminded your work isn’t just about you and there are people out there who genuinely care about what you do.
Below is a piece of fan art from Axiom-man superfan Movies, Comics, and MTG. Below that is a video he made about Axiom-man and the upcoming Axiom-man/Auroraman: Frozen Storm Kickstarter.
A special thank you to Movies, Comics, and MTG for these. They made my day at a time when I needed a boost.
I will be tabling at the first-ever FanQuest here in Winnipeg, “created by fans, for fans,” as per their tagline.
The show runs May 26-28 at the University of Winnipeg in Riddell Hall.
Should be a lot of fun.
I’m going to be tabling small at this convention so that’s going to be an interesting experience, too. My main focus will be superhero and monster stuff as opposed to bringing everything. Might bring some art prints for sale as well.
I will be signing not one, but two, books at Coles Bookstore in Kildonan Place Mall here in Winnipeg on March 25 from 1 to 3pm. It’s a Saturday. Mark it on your calendars.
Books on hand will be Mech Apocalypse and Zombie Fight Night: Battles of the Dead, both of which are high-octane, action-packed novels that go hard non-stop from start to finish. As well, if you want any other book of mine signed, just bring it down to the store and I’ll be happy to sign it for you.
Coles has always been good to me and I’m proud to do another signing there. A public thank you to Coles and their staff for their continuous kindness and support of this local author.
It is with great pleasure that A.P. Fuchs and Jeff Burton announce the upcoming Kickstarter campaign for the team-up novel, Axiom-man and Auroraman: Frozen Storm.
Not only will this Kickstarter fund the novel, but also fund Auroraman No. 1. Earlier in 2016, Jeff kickstarted Issue 0 to great success so we’re excited to work on this dual effort together and bring you a fantastic issue of Auroraman complete with a short comic at the end that leads into Frozen Storm.
Jeff and I have already discussed the general outline for the story and can’t wait to show you what’s in store as time gets closer to launching the Kickstarter into full gear.
I can, however, tell you one thing about Frozen Storm and it’s this: these icy villains put the abominable snowman to shame.
Did you know now and then Axiom-man makes an appearance in my newsletter? In fact, he was just in there last week for the second time. You see, every week in Year Three of The Canister X Transmission is a piece of flash fiction–various genres–and Axiom-man likes to pop up from time to time.
These stories are canon and are part of the overall saga.
(For those not aware, The Axiom-man Saga in its entirety is made up of novels, novellas, short stories, flash fiction, and comics.)
To ensure you get the whole story, get a copy of The Canister X Transmission in your email every week.
Also note other superhero fiction shows up there as well.
You can subscribe to the newsletter using the subscription box on this site or go here.
