Dragon Con Art

I’ll be in Atlanta for Dragon Con again at the end of August.

last week I got a call from the Art Show Director, John Parise, who’d found himself in a pickle. The convention had somehow neglected to secure artwork for the T-Shirts and other collateral. Could I help?

I owe John a favor (or two or three) from all the years I’ve been late with my paperwork. I blame Comic Con . . . and I’m not kidding. So I planned to bang something out. Instead I spent several days and made the piece of art below.

I’ll have prints of it at Comic Con and Dragon Con, and an oversized print at Dragon Con as well. Once those two shows are behind me, I’ll make it available on my website too.

Kickstarter Tease

Hey, folks! As mentioned in the previous post, I’m pushing a Kickstarter to fund the second volume in the anthology series begun with Tales of the Emerald Serpent. The first book was well-reviewed, and my own story got frequent praise, for which I am grateful and proud.

In case you’re interested, here are links to reviews of volume one, including a look by the Hugo-winning editor of Pyr books, Lou Anders:

I want to encourage you to pitch in. At the $25 level, you get the option to receive the first volume in e-form as well as the second volume. How can you go wrong?

As an enticement, I’ve decided to post a PDF of the first half of my story Between  from Tales of the Emerald Serpent as a tease. Give it a read, please, then head over to the Kickstarter page and opt in.

Many thanks!


Enjoy . . .

New Kickstarter to Launch A Knight in the Silk Purse


A Knight in the Silk Purse, returns readers to the Free City of Taux, a fantasy port of cursed stones, dark plots, and a core of rich characters who share space inside the infamous Black Gate District.

The first volume, Tales of the Emerald Serpent, included my first ever published fiction, the short story Between. Now Torrent faces new dilemnas in the aftermath of her fight—what to do with the magic gem she holds, how to learn what it is, and most importantly, how to avoid the powerful cabal that wants it back. Her story will interweave with others from the first volume and with new characters.

Authors joining me in this effort are Lynn FlewellingDave GrossJuliet McKennaMartha WellsRobert ManceboJulie CzernedaMichael Tousignant, Elaine Cunningham, Dan Wells, and Howard Tayler. 

Reviews for Tales of the Emerald Serpent, Volume I, included the following:


Keith West of Adventure Fantastic writes: There’s not a bad story in the lot, and some of them, such as “Between” by Todd Lockwood and “Charlatan” by Scott Taylor tell of the same events from completely different points of view.  The overall effect creates a book that is greater than the sum of its parts.  Along with reading some good fiction by old favorites, I’ve discovered some more writers whose work I’ll be reading.

Lou Anders of Editor-In-Chief of Pyr Books writes: I’d highly recommend Tales of the Emerald Serpent. I like what it does and how it goes about it. It’s a smart, good looking package with some real gems of fiction inside. I have no knowledge of a sequel in the works, but I’d certainly fund another Tales of the Emerald.

Andy Goldman of Lithicbee writes: If you like dueling swordsmen (and -women), magic-filled action and adventure, love both true and enchanted, and stories that work on their own and as part of a shared whole, get thee hence and pick up a copy of Tales of the Emerald Serpent. What Scott and the involved writers have accomplished is not only a solid shared-world book, but stories and characters that call out for a sequel. Here’s to a new era of shared worlds!


And I will do the cover art again…

Please help us launch this volume. Thanks!

Dragon Animations

I did these two animations of a Gold Dagon and a Red Dragon in flight a long time ago, but only now am I getting around to posting them. Originally intended as flip-animations for the corners of the Draconomicon, they weren’t used because it would have meant creating new graphic layouts for the corners to accommodate them. I guess that wasn’t in the budget.

These were done in Painter, which has a cell animation interface that’s good for this sort of thing. Click on the images to see the animation:
