Profile

Welcome to this page!
I write short stories and the occasional novel, generally in the sci-fi/fantasy genre, and have a select few published stories out there in unheard of online magazines. I also do art on occasion, which I don't take quite as seriously as writing but for which I still try to maintain a healthy level of quality. I produce such works rather infrequently, as I'm an astronomy postdoc who's also trying to finish up a novel. When I'm not doing any of those things, I'm probably wasting time playing NES games or something.

The MLR stands for Monsieur LeRenard, si cela vous avez intéressé, but you can call me Frank.

I started a Tumblr...

I don't know what I'll do with it. Probably occasionally post things like I've been doing here. But it seemed like a thing that could be done, so I've done it.

Anyway... if any of my watchers here are interested: franklerenard.tumblr.com

I work in a few different styles, from clean lines (Paint Tool SAI) to messy lines (GIMP) to traditional media (pencil, usually digitally smoothed and colored, or India ink if you ask nicely).

Stipulations: I ask for half payment up front and half upon completion. Paypal transactions only (I take care of fees, so don't fret).
Please send me your e-mail address so I can communicate with you (sending sketches, asking questions, basically to ensure you get the product you want).
Nothing erotic/fetish. Artistic nudity is fine if you ask really nicely.
Timeliness of completion is by necessity stochastic, but I will shoot for 1-2 weeks for simpler pieces and > 1 month for more complex pieces.

    Thank you for your thoughts.

      Sure, and sorry for your first negative review. If you want, we could talk more, but if not, you can take that review as aberrant given the 23 other very positive ones and go forth as you were.
      By the way, if i didn't mention it, I did think the book's concept was really good. It was like an old sci-fi epic, but where the focus was on this unusual and tender relationship between two characters who were master and slave. I can't claim I've ever seen anything like that before.

    I decided to follow because you are a familiar face and I was hoping to get to know more about you and read your stories. I hope that is okay? I can unwatch if I am making you uncomfortable, sorry.

      Ha ha, no, it doesn't make me uncomfortable. I was just curious, was all. Came a bit out of the blue.
      In any case, thanks. Hopefully you enjoy the little I've got uploaded here.

    Greetings! How are you today?

    A question I wanted to address you: Have you by chance read "The Jewish-Japanese Sex and Cook Book and How to Raise Wolves"? by Jack Douglas.
    The way you title your writing tutorials reminded me of this book and I could not help but wonder if you have read it.

      No... I've never heard of that. But it sounds strangely fascinating.
