About

20 years of experience working in publishing and creative entertainment.

All Day Breakfast Productions is my "solo" development studio created to produce my ideas, stories and properties some of which have been Amazon best-selling books.

The ultimate dream is to register my studio as a non-profit charity and donate any profits after expenses are paid to worthwhile charities.

If you need cover, sequential or concept art, writing, have a convention or need help to raise money for a worthwhile cause, get in touch!

Thanks,

Mike Gagnon
