It is All Relative

Get Ready for the Storm...



RELATIVITY is a character drama that centers around a team of superheroes who operate in the fictional Gale City. The focus of the series, however, is the people behind the mask, and how they juggle work, life and love while donning a mask at night. While essentially a prose-comicbook series, Relativity is also firmly planted in the mystery genre as the team investigates and solves various crimes, while also contending with a menagerie of strange and interesting villains.

Lost and Found Scene 1 - Relativity Episode 1The light above the vanity flickered, throwing the room into a series of shadows. Babs Stone tapped the plastic casing with her finger, hoping to jiggle the bulb back into place. The room fell into complete darkness. After a moment, the light snapped back on, shining bright and steady. The prostitute leaned back towards the mirror.
Pulling up her chin, Babs checked her throat carefully. While she didn’t have a policy against rough stuff, she didn’t like when her clients left marks. It made it difficult when picking up another john, not to mention she simply didn’t like bruising on her neck. Satisfied, she tousled her long platinum blonde hair so it framed her face, then twisted open a cylinder of Fire Engine Red and  smeared it across her lips. She could hear shuffling and smiled at the thought of the man on the other side of the door.
While she had several regulars, Babs liked Denny the best. He was always clean and smelled nice. More than that, he always called

It was early afternoon and traffic was light; only a few other cars were on the road. A white hatchback zipped past and pulled in front of her. It was travelling at a steady pace, but soon it started to veer left, then right. While it didn't cross into another lane, it was rolling back and forth over the line, making it dangerous for anyone to pass.
   "Drunk," she whispered under her breath. She eased up on the accelerator and wondered if she should call the highway hotline.
   Before she could decide, the car jerk sharply to the left. She could see through the back window. The driver was thrashing and jumping out of her seat. A moment later, the car veered sharply to the right and off the road.
   Melody gasped. Thankfully, the surroundings were mostly level and the area beyond the road was a shallow incline to a grassy field, rather than a deep ditch. She pu

Three Years

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 15, 2014, 7:41 AM
On October 31st Relativity will turn 3 years old. Actually, it's a bit older than that, considering it was "born" a year and a bit before that. But it will be three years since we first started publishing the series. Last year I made a huge deal of the anniversary, with all kinds of special art and a feature. While I don't have the time, or finances, to do something on-par this year, I had planned a low-key celebration with a few art pieces and maybe an extra story. But recently, I decided to skip it. I am so proud of the series. I feel we are at our best point story-wise and writing-wise, ever. However, I see interest in the series dropping. That, coupled with IRL stuff that is kinda pulling me down, it makes it hard to feel celebratory. Anyhow, this is not a death sentence or anything. The stories will still go on. In fact, Jim and I had a mini-date night last night where we worked on plotting through Book 9. It was neat. And we simply love the story too much to stop. However, I guess we've notched down our aspirations and dreams, which is okay. Having a small, but loyal fan base is more than many people have--so we're grateful.

Anyhow, thank you for three amazing years. Here's to many more ahead.

The Beginning...



Black Torrent commission by shamserg

Twenty years ago the Black Torrent patrolled the streets of Gale City, protecting the citizens, until he disappeared without a trace...

Michael Bruce is one of the world's richest men, head of a real estate empire that spreads to all corners of the world. Many wonder what is the secret to his success, but Michael's secrets travel far beyond the boardroom...onto the rooftops of Gale. Taking over the role of the Black Torrent, the young CEO follows in the footsteps of his father, keeping the streets safe from crime. When Martin Bling, the billionaire casino mogul, shows up on the scene, Torrent and his team start digging into the man's less-than-ethical affairs. They are aided in their investigation by the mysterious Dark Flame, a relative newcomer to the crimefighting scene. Expecting to uncover corporate corruption and dirty business dealings, what they find threatens to shake Michael to the core – a connection to Bling's girlfriend he never dreamed of, and a revelation that the past he knew wasn't what he thought it to be. As crimefighting and family drama collide, the team must deal with secrets, lies and betrayals, and the prospects of an uncertain future. -- Click to Read
