Tell No Lies − New Book!

New Book!

A great big Thank You goes out to all the artist’s involved and to those who helped with the DTP side of things. But especially to my girl Faye, for her support and hard work throughout the project. What follows is a straight cut and paste of a prepared press release.

TTS CoverPR: A girl trapped in a box, a boy chained to a rock and a friendship between a child and a flower. These are just a few of the themes that storyteller Fehed Said explores in this collection. Joining Fehed Said, the acclaimed writer behind SLG’s Clarence Principle, and Sonia Leong, the award winning artist behind SMH’s Romeo & Juliet is a sterling lineup of the UK’s best new talent. Featuring artwork from Nana Li, Wing Yun Man, Chloe Citrine and Faye Yong.

“It was such a varied mix of stories” says Said. “When I was trying to come up with the title for the book, I wanted to find a connection between them all. Evidently, the critical moments in each piece came up as the protagonist’s talked with strangers.”

Nana Li was the artist for ‘Box’, and sums up that story as: “It’s a short and dark story, but I think the ending will leave a tingling sensation in the spine.” The same could certainly be said about the reading experience of this title. From the morbid fairy-tale style ‘Malignant’ and the sweetness of ‘Flowers’; this anthology showcases a variety in storytelling and artistic talent.

Talking To Strangers is due for release on 24th October 2009 at the London MCM Expo and available to buy online from the Sweatdrop Studios website.

    My name is Julia, and I am a huge fan. I read your stuff back when I was 16, and some of your work was not yet published.. Speaking as an aspiring manga artist (I plan to attend a 3 year diploma course in classical animation and sequential arts) and I couldn’t be more inspired by your work, looking back now. I really enjoyed every story I have read, my favourite, and this goes without saying, is still The Clarence Principle. Its been described as a dark Alice in Wonderland, but personally, I never liked this comparison, since this was a well constructed other world, not merely an acid trip gone right (lol).

    In conclusion, I would just like to say you’ve given me a tremendous amount of hope as an Comic Artist (wannabe) and I look forward to checking out your latest work.

    All the best, and with much fan love,

    Oh yes, and do you have any advice, career or otherwise, for me?
