In the Ensor crowd

Here is another image (of 34) from the upcoming, penultimate chapter (#17) of Shadow Bay, the noir visual novel I've been working on for over 6 months with friend & writer Donald J. Rothschild:

The image shows Detective Paduano of the Rosehill police among a group of "Ensor" faces at a Florida racetrack. You'll have to read the story to make sense of this. Donald & I use "Ensor" as a codeword for "dark, grotesque, disturbing" etc. It's a reference to James Ensor, the Belgian artist, who produced dark, disturbing images of skeletons, masks, skulls & the like. I like his artwork a lot. Look him up...

Shadow Bay is now about 96% (a guesstimate) done. We'd like to find a nice publisher or similar to get this out to a larger audience. If you know anyone like that, pls drop me a line.
