Love is in the Blood - return from the undead
edited January 2012 in Work Logs
Okay folks, it's official - Gina Biggs is the new artist and we'll start posting new pages on Valentine's Day. News is up at the Love is in the Blood website.
Here's the lovely promo we put up:
I'm sending out short news releases to webcomic new sites and blogs, hitting Twitter, Facebook, and G+, plus putting together a full press release for the sites that may not know us.
More news here as it happens!
Looks good, huh?
LOVE BITES... BUT SO DO I.
From an eon of slumber within the soul of archeologist Laila McCarthy, the Sumerian vampire Lamashtu is rising. Ancient enemies smell her out and strike to stop the horror before Lamashtu can fully return. But blood spilt never stopped a creature of bloodlust, and Laila must cling to love lest her heart be consumed by the first vampire.
No doubt I have the details of your story wrong, but I think you need something that connects the promo to the title a little better.
Also, every sentence features an action, "Lamashtu rising", "smell and strike", "cling to love", while the set up mileau "archeologist", "Sumerian vampire", "first vampire" are mostly nouns and adjectives.
Also, including questions in these doesn't tend to raise the tension; "can she survive?" well, she's the protagonist, so I expect she will. But the action she must take; "cling to love" presents the challange. How will she accomplish this? Sounds like it might not be as easy as one would think.
