The Comic Team Behind “The 9 Circles” at Tampa Bay Comic Con

Panel “It’s a Book! It’s a Script! It’s a Comic!” presented by Jaimie Engle, KoolasHeck, and Keith Rommel, Blood Moon Comics, LLC

Tampa, FL, July 29th – July 31st – The Tampa Bay Comic Con welcomes many artists, celebrities, creators, and fans including the creative team behind “The 9 Circles” written by Jaimie Engle with art by KoolasHeck, and published through Keith Rommel’s Blood Moon Comics, LLC. In addition to having a booth space where fans can buy comics, meet the team, and even take a photograph with a six foot cardboard cutout of the main character, Simeon, the three will be on a panel titled “It’s a book! It’s a script! It’s a comic!” to discuss the collaborative process of writing in books, film, and comic mediums. The convention will be held at the Tampa Bay Convention Center from July 29, 11am-10pm, July 30 from 9am-10pm, and ends on July 31 from 9am-5pm at 333 S. Franklin Street in Tampa, Florida.

Engle recently presented on “How to Write Comics” at two Hillsborough County Libraries during their summer youth services program supported by the Friends of the Library.

“Comics continue to grow in popularity, and young writers are especially interested in learning to write in this specialized format,” shared Engle regarding her visits. “It’s different from writing novels or screenplays, which is so fun, offering a unique outlet for creativity.”

“The 9 Circles” comic was first adapted from a short story in Engle’s collection titled “The Toilet Papers” after she adapted it into a script for television first. The script won multiple prestigious film awards and caught the attention of Keith Rommel, who offered her a contract to write for Blood Moon Comics. Engle reached out to the artist known as KoolasHeck, who is a Sketchcard Illustrator for Upper Deck/Marvel Comics and an illustrator, writer, and executive producer on multiple comic series. The collaboration has proved to be a powerhouse combination and the team are now producing a one shot titled “Gaijin in Tokyo” with a projected December 2022 release date.

“Blood Moon Comics who has been featured in the Key Collector app as well as Comics Heating Up!” shared Rommel. “As Indy title of the year as well as monthly picks, we will be in attendance at the con accepting submissions in the horror, science fiction, and fantasy categories.”

Engle and KoolasHeck will be signing books, selling merch, and giving away swag as they interact with fans all weekend!

Podcast E5 What Did You Say?

E5: What Did You Say?

Your words have power. Did you know that? You can shape tomorrow with what you say today. In fact, your present is a result of what you said yesterday. Think about it… What are you saying about yourself, your art, your business, your family? Are you sowing seeds that will produce a harviest of fruit or weeds? In this episode, I work to inspire you to think about your words and how they affect your life, keeping in mind that your speech isn’t the end of the journey. It’s the compass that provides you with your next steps, your next door, and your next big thing!


Podcast E4 Why Do It?

E4: Why Do It?

In this crazy world of show business, we have to ask ourselves, “Why do it?” If you don’t know your ‘why’ then it will be very hard to stay in the game. If you don’t know ‘why you do it’ it will be impossible to find satisfaction and joy when you actually do achieve your goals. In this episode, I look into the importance of finding a reason that is not related to the goal but rather to the journey.


Podcast E3 Confidence is a Mindset

E3: Confidence is a Mindset

Confidence is a mindset. It is not a result of our efforts. Too many of us make the opinions of others the root for our confidence. What happens when those opinions falter? The whole confidence tree falls to the ground. In this episode, I break down some ways to think differently about confidence and some places to find some that lasts, regardless of the whims of others. Please follow, like, and share to inspire others!
