Just got the thumbs-up from Mark Heike on a new script.
Mark asked me to write more scripts featuring the main FemForce characters. Now, this isn't the first time I've written non-giantess material for AC. Previously, I've written the dialogue on two Yankee Girl stories, and did a two-part story with She-Cat, Ms. Masque, and Firebeam. But this is part of a shift where I've been told I should feel more free to write side stories with the FemForce main characters and submit them, in addition to being a regular submitter with some of the giantess characters.
I need to take advantage of this opportunity, and write enough FemForce stories where I have a larger body of work that I can show off, without the giantess theme being quite as overwhelming. Which, hopefully, will give me something to point to if I ever pursue writing opportunities with larger comic book companies.
Which doesn't mean I won't be writing more of the Gammazon Housewife or Marla "Humonga" Allison. Those stories are fun!
As to the script itself. It's an 8 page story, featuring Stardust. Takes place in outer space, so I do get to use my science geek knowledge for a plot point or two. Also turns out, AC had a piece of cover art sitting around featuring Stardust which they hadn't been able to use for a while, so my story gives them an excuse to use that cover.
I think FemForce #158 is mostly in the can, and #159 (March / April) already has cover set, so I'm guessing this story will be in FemForce #160 or thereabouts, maybe sometime in June / July?
