I miss writing...

I can not believe how long it has been since I blogged on here.  I guess that I have been plenty busy though.  I only wish that I could say that I was busy writing.  Unfortunately, real life has gotten in the way some.  It's not a complaint really; life, work, family, it's all great!  I just wish that I had more time for writing.  I miss it.  My oldest son has been doing a lot of creative writing after school.  He is incredibly talented for a seven year old, and comes up with some very interesting plots and characters.  When I come home from work and I see him sitting at the table scribbling away, I find myself feeling a little jealous of his progress and the time that he has to write.  But at the same time, I'm very proud of what he has done.  I can't wait till work slows down some so that I can work on the projects that I have brewing.  I know that I will get back into the swing of things soon.

IndieGoGo: Enter The Hero

So last year, I tried raising funds on Kickstarter to help fund the completion of my graphic novel, Enter The Hero.  The funding was unfortunately unsuccessful.  But I learned a lot along the way, and found that there were several things I could have done differently and gotten much better results.  So I'm trying again, this time with IndieGoGo.  The target goal is smaller, and the rewards are better than last time.  There's something for everyone!  Please take the time to check it out, and consider making your own donation.  I would very much appreciate it.  Thanks.

Finally, The Dinosaur Farm

In an earlier blog post, I explained how my 6 year old son wanted me to write a book for him about dinosaurs and ghosts.  So it did take me longer than I had expected, but my first Middle Grade Children's Book, The Dinosaur Farm, is now complete and available for purchase.  If you have a little one of your own, or a young relative or friend, please consider checking it out.  Thanks.

About:  Mark and Danny are brothers.  They've just moved into a large abandoned farm with their parents.  At one time the farm yielded the best crops, had the largest barns, and the animals... well, they might have been dinosaurs.  Mark and Danny spend their days an nights trying to find proof that dinosaurs once lived on the farm.  The clues lead them to an old legend, and a dark cave that holds a secret that is larger than time itself.

The Dinosaur Farm is available here on Amazon.com or on my website, MHeitkemperBooks.com

My New Webcomic: Distractions

Been a while since I've been on here, but that's because I've been busy writing.  One of the things I've been working on is a new web comic called "Distractions."  I've teamed up with a very talented artist named Bret Ward, and we're going to do our best to post a new page each week.  You can follow the comic here: http://www.drunkduck.com/Distractions/  the first page has just posted, and in case you don't feel clicking a link, the first page is here too!
