William Kely McClung

With a lifetime pursuit of both pen and sword, directing films seemed like a natural progression for Kely McClung. Earning his black belt in a half-dozen traditional disciplines, McClung studied dozens more with martial arts teachers from around the world, has worked with police departments and the military, and won the World Middleweight Championship in Full Contact Stickfighting. As an artist, McClung's Photography is represented by the Micheal-Warren Contemporary in Denver, Colorado, while his pen and ink skills are best represented by the massive portrait of Martin Luther King, Jr, and Mahatma Gandhi that hangs at the Martin Luther King, Jr Center for Non-Violent Change in Atlanta, Georgia. McClung is an accomplished film maker, winning festival awards around the world for his three feature films, BLOOD TIES, KERBEROS, and ALTERED, his short films LOOP and A..M. SESSION, and a prolific screenwriter. He has written two novels, LOOP and BLACK FIRE, and continues to train, teach, write, and film around the world.

Writing with style — grammar, punctuation and story structure

Writing “LOOP,”  I thought much about grammar and punctuation and story structure, and wondered if my own style… whatever the hell that is… would make for a cohesive, coherent story that would ultimately inspire the reader to read each one of the 84 thousand words, sentence by sentence to a satisfying ending, and —really dreaming …

Infected with Book Two in the LOOP series, “THE INFECTED”

I haven’t yet decided if Loop should become a full-fledged book series, though I have many ideas and possible directions with Book Two in the LOOP series, “THE INFECTED.”  I can envision the second book, and maybe even a third in this science-fiction horror thriller hybrid.

A note of thanks

These cards were inspired by the book, LOOP. What is written in the book is infinitely more terrifying, but these were fun to create. They were originally modeled in Z-Brush by German artist Heiko van der Sherm, before I modified, textured and painted them in Photoshop and Painter. Lots of details that refer back to the book. Not exactly ‘cute,’ but I hope in their own creepy way, they make you smile. The printed version found on the store are much higher resolution, so take a look!

If you’ve read the hook, I sincerely hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I did in researching, writing and creating it. If you are just now discovering LOOP, you have so much still in front of you! Some terrific, badass characters, outrageous thought-provoking situations, lots of vivid action, unique bad guys and monsters, and some disturbing, creepy passages (literally as part of the story takes place underground in the tunnels of Mazeville!) LOOP has been a labor of love these past two years and the result of my love of telling stories — creating, learning, and sharing. If you like it, please pass it on, and if you get the chance to leave a review where you bought it, it would mean the world to me and the continued success of my writing.
