Character Collaboration with Jeff Thomason


In March 2012 Jeff Thomason (the superb comic artist behind the Jak Phoenix Universe illustrations) decided to create this stellar graphic depicting his character, Wandering Koala, and good old Jak Phoenix himself in a ‘what-if’ situation. Like everything he has drawn for the Jak Phoenix Universe this one is a wonderful piece of art. Jeff’s drawings took Jak Phoenix off the page and really brought him to life. His article here explains some of the technical details behind the work and is entitled ‘Teamwork in Fiction,” which perfectly outlines the relationship he and I formed through our indie publishing adventures. Thanks again, Jeff!

jak phoenix 1 and jak phoenix 2: the markazian deception paperback booksI was interviewed by fantasy author Tracy Falbe yesterday and we discussed writing, inspiration and my character Jak Phoenix. Here’s a snippet of that interview:

With two novels and a short story to his name (and a few good reviews) Canadian indie author Matt D. Williams reveals what he likes about his low-achiever hero Jak Phoenix and his writing goals.

1. Why space opera? What elements of this genre do you enjoy most as a writer?

As far back as I can remember, I’ve always been attracted to sprawling space opera-type tales with an inherent lighter tone. There is just something about an action packed pulp story told on a grand scale that gets my heart pumping and my mind racing. The big heroes, the diabolical villains, the explosions, the space pistols – fun stuff.

There are many very talented authors out there who are doing exceptional work with harder…
