Flight Four!


So the last little while I've been knuckling down on a project and I'm happy to announce it's pretty much done! Yay! So be sure to check out my short story, "The Forever Box" in the fourth volume of Flight, which will be released by Ballantine Books next summer. It's my first ever contribution to the comic anthology (or any comic anthology for that matter.) I'm very very excited about it and still feel so fortunate to have been given the opportunity.

If you've never read any of the Flight books, I highly recommend checking them out (here is the link to the official site.) It's been a wonderful experience, not because I adore writing stories, but I was able to work with some of the crazy talented (and very nice too) Flight authors.

Now that I'll have a bit more time on my hands, tune in tomorrow for the first installment of a new blog story :)

Congratulations on finishing your huge project, Sarah! I look forward to reading it in Flight. The image you posted looks amazing.

Thanks Mark. This painting isn't from the story, I just realized I didn't mention that. I just thought it seemed fitting to draw four people flying for a Flight Four announcement :)

You see that? The cat's outta the bag!

Congratulations of finishing "The Forever Box". It's going to be amazing seeing it with alongside stories by those other great artists. It will truly be in company it deserves.

Yay! I was lucky in that I managed to pick up the first Flights 1 & 2 when I was at Comic-Con 2005 - along with some autographs from the artists that were there. I'm such a fangirl. :D

Can't wait to see your "The Forever Box" story in the upcoming Flight 4, Sarah! I'll have to get your autograph, too... ;)

wow, that's awesome sarah. I just picked up the 3rd volume of flight about 2 months ago, and read the whole thing. I was really amazed at all the cool innovative short stories and gorgeous design and coloring. There was so much great stuff in it. I can't wait to read your contribution in the next volume.
