At this time, HELLWATCH is on indefinite hold due to a computer crash and loss of important data. All efforts are currently being focused on DARK ZOEY in the Comics section.
A young disabled woman in a wheelchair protects an unaware world from demons and monsters.
Ester Vasquez, born with arthrogryposis, hunts the monsters and demons that hide from the unsuspecting masses along with her 6’8, 360lbs Samoan care provider, Sammy. Hellwatch is planned to be an ongoing serial fiction series told in 9 monthly ‘episode’ novellas per ‘season’. The pilot episode is available now, and 8 more will follow each month starting in January 2012.
Critical response to Hellwatch:
“Urban fantasy has been somewhat overrun lately with vampires, werewolves and the various men and women who love them. It’s hard to find a new angle on what seems to be a now-familiar subject and even harder to make that angle fresh and interesting. Larime Taylor succeeds at both with his new serialized book, Hellwatch.”
-Corrina Lawson, Wired.com’s Geek Dad blog
“Patterning itself off of a tv pilot makes Hellwatch a short book. A novella. [...] However, if the pilot is good, you are interested to see how these questions will be answered and get excited about the series. In this regard, Hellwatch does an excellent job.”
Episode Two: Mephistopheles (Available now!)
The enigmatic Demon in Black, an independent agent and Ester’s occasional contact, surfaces with some important information. As he looks to be playing both sides of the fence, whose side is he really on? Can he make Ester an offer she can’t refuse?
Episode One: Pilot (Available now!)
In episode one – ‘Pilot’ – Ester and Sammy travel just over the Mexican border from their home in Arizona to help a little boy possessed by a demon, but what awaits them when they return home is far worse than anything they’ve ever faced. It will take all of Ester’s brains and Sammy’s brawn to repel an attack that threatens not just years of hard work, but their lives as well.
