To my fantastic fans,
You’re invited to step aboard my Patreon galleon
and sail to new uncharted territories!
I came to Patreon at first to support my fellow artists friends. And I am still supporting them via this fantastic system.
But now a flurry of new projects are claiming for existence:
- Windmistress, YA SF, 43 finished pages on 50.
- Honor Road, manga, 200 pages, 22 finished
- Joys of the Signing Table, 100 gags published on my blog, meaning a 250-page album in manga format. I need at least thirty hours to convert the graphic files to the publication format.
I am currently working on two SF novels ( Azuras and Grasshoppers), and planning for more.
Your kind support on Patreon will make a difference for my writing and drawing fiction, especially as I write in both English and French. It will allow me to hire help for translation and design, and to get the formation I need to hone my craft. Because I am always learning.
It will make a difference for you, as your pledge will reap rewards: free reading, behind-the-scene sketches, ex-libris, ebooks…

Some of my recent English titles (ebooks and comic books) can be found below.
Ma Patreon page contains a short and funny video presentation. Enjoy its nice musical score and share it among potentials fans !
What is trendy today… will have cooled down tomorrow! Don’t lose time chasing the latest fads!
As for the publishing delays, the new realities of the writing world have reduced them. Nevertheless, that advice stays: better write/draw what you love!
Running at daybreak on August 11, I had the occasion to observe a strange meteorological phenomenon.
I was running on a small side road, making 3 km circuits. The morning mist floated above the hay fields, a large open space. Then the sun rose, and I had the wonderful surprise! Continue reading

That I am working on, hence the delay in getting new gags uploaded on this blog. A few writing and illustration contracts landed in the same week, a rare event.

The two events occurred… in separate instances. Even on vacation, the author tries to optimize her WiFi signal!

I can’t resist the call of the garden…
There’s a spring rivality between the two activities. So the next novel will wait a little!
So this was my first ever marathon, completed in a whopping 5h45min! (See my finish video and some pictures here, the exact personal time is 5h42:52)
I haven’t decided yet if I want run another full one. As you can see I got stiff knees for a few days post-race. But I was fairly better at the Sudbury French bookfair!
However, half-marathons are perfect for me: I completed the first part of the race in a fairly good 2h20!
The training (with a half-marathon group as there was no full training instructor available last January) took long hours from my writing and comics creation. I’d love to run a full 42,2 k under a more favorable weather!
My next race is this Sunday, a 15-km at the Bread and Honey Festival, of Streetsville.

To be continued…
A marathon is like two half-marathons, one after the other, right?
Well, my legs did not agree with this optimist assessment!

Are you nervous signing with a heavy block hanging over your table? I am!
But the worst situation was witnessed here, at the 2008 Paris bookfair. (Yes, it’s me under the triangular sign!)
