JMD WORKS

G'day,

Welcome to small corner of the internet. I’m Joe, an Aussie artist and writer who has been scribbling in the boarders notebooks for as long as I can remember. Raised on a good dose of comics, games, fantasy and sci-fi, I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art in 2008 with my first piece of professional writing appearing on-line in 2018. I am currently working on my first book, The History of SEGA.

Thanks very much for stopping by; please feel free to poke around. I hope you enjoy what you see. 😁

15/07/24 - History of SEGA Update

It's been a little while since I posted an update on the status of the History of SEGA book I'm working on, so I thought it was about time I did so. As of right now, all is going well. The final draft is all but done, it just needs a few minor tweaks, and I'm in the process of sourcing images for inclusion in the book. The issue of images has been something of a steep learning curve as I've had to get my head around copyright and usage rules and so on, but I've only a few more to source to hit the 100-images sweet spot. 

I have a bit of a worry regarding the word count as I did not realise until relatively recently that my 60,000 word allowance includes the main text and the intro, index, bibliography and acknowledgements. The main text itself is over 60,000, so there may need to be some cuts made (I've already made a few).  Once all of that is sorted it's off to the publisher to ensure they are happy with it. 

It'll still be a few months before everything is set in stone, but of course I shall keep you posted.

29/06/24 - Another Website Refresh

I've decided to move the site back to GoogleSites. Yes, it's not as flexable as WordPress, but it's much cheaper to run. Seeing as social media is where most people gain their information from now anyway, and the majority of my stuff is on Substack, there did not seem much point in having a hugely extensive site, espeically one I was struggling to afford. Maybe that will change in the future, but for now I think this will work nicely.
