Taran J Hook
Artist | Hobbyist | Literature
I'm Taran J Hook
I'm a New Jersey actor, comic, and boat mechanic.

It's not uncommon to find me in a number of different places along the East Coast. I'm easy to find and apparently hard to forget. Don't be afraid to say hi.

Current projects:

The Star Children (novel)
The Dock season 2 1/2 (web series)
The Crown (book series)
Saving Autumn (novel)
It's Been a Long Road (stand-up)

Current Residence: Wildwood Crest, New Jersey
Favourite genre of music: metal, and polka
Favourite style of art: to look at, B&W pencil. To actually do, digital
Personal Quote: You're only young once, but you can be immature forever!
First of all, I totally just noticed I had 15,900 page views, so that means I'm almost to 16,000 page views. Holy crap that's awesome!

Secondly, I gotta promotion at work! I'll be in charge of all the social media interaction for Dark Star Pirate Cruises as well as doing media stuff for the other boats in our fleet as well. This is pretty super awesome because doing promotional material is what I started with (I did a lot of band promotion stuff in high school) so I'll get to do more of what I enjoy doing, and that's having fun with people and making sure they're having fun too. If you do the Instagram thing, look up Dark_Star_Pirates and be sure to follow our nonsense. ALL of our nonsense!

Starting in April, so like the next day or so, I'm gonna be actively writing Star Children again. I took a wee break just because mentally I felt drained from everything, I wanted to focus on other things and because I knew Camp NaNoWriMo was coming up so I could just pick things up there. The Star Children happened because of NaNo, and it was a good thing to get me into a good writing habit. So fear not, I did not abandon the story, just waiting for the right time to start back up.

I have recently started a new project, I'm hoping it stays short, but we'll see. It's called Saving Autumn. I wanted to try my hand at something more fantasy driven (being that Star Children is more SciFi). So if you're into fantasy settings (with giants), then keep an eye on Saving Autumn.

With that, I'm gonna go get some tea and finish up this chapter.
  • Mood: Eager
  • Reading: Saving Autumn
  • Drinking: Twinnings tea

For the next chapter of The Star Children what do you want to see?

Hey! I saw your comment a few days ago and am just now able to respond. I've been SUPER busy with work lately and with what little time I have to myself I'm usually catching up on sleep. I haven't forgotten about it, I actually think I have the next chapter done, it just needs to be edited before I post it. But I'll be getting to it soon. I also starting 'Saving Autumn' and I'm thinking about reworking a few things in it, haven't been able to do it yet, but I'm working on it. That one was supposed to by my Camp Nanowrimo story for April and I TOTALLY forgot about it! But don't worry, it'll be soon, I promise! :D I'm glad people are still following it, that's awesome! I guess I didn't realize how popular it was.

Of course! Saw you mentioned in Sparking Burgundy's last journal and wanted to give your work a read.

It's mostly crap--especially the early stuff--but I hope you enjoy it!
