I’ve got a new desk, folks. After 20 years of sitting (and drawing) on a small cramped space that was made to contain a tower PC, I now have a… slightly larger desk with actual elbow room and drawers that I don’t use. It hasn’t changed how I do anything, though, except I now have more room to scatter paper everywhere.
Appearances: I’ll be at Sydney Kinkuniya bookstore on the 8th August, 2015 @ 4pm-5:30pm, for a panel called “Women and Comics: A Comic Con-versation”. This is going to be interesting…
Fabled Kingdom News: I’m now past the 50% mark! The story is meant to be 21 chapters, and I’m now halfway through Chapter 12. It’s remarkable how quickly things can move – I’m doing a chapter a month, and I hope to finish Chapter 14 by the end of October.
Which brings me to this: I now have Chapter 8-11 of book2 available for sale as PDFs on Smashwords. They’re books 4 and 5 in the series, and they’ll also be available on Apple iBooks (and also Nook and Kobo, though it’s best to download the sample to make sure that the file can work on those readers).
Again, I’ve had to mess with the chapter distribution. Previously, it was meant to be 9 ebooks with 2.5 chapters each, but thanks to the 10MB file size limit Smashwords imposes, it’s now 10 ebooks with 2 chapters each. Since it’s now 2 chapters each part instead of 2.5, I’ve lowered the price of each ebook to $1.69 and made book 4 free until the end of July. Sorry for the inconvenience, folks – hopefully this will be the last time this sort of thing happens.
Tumblr Posts: I’ve been posting animated gifts of my work up onto my tumblr. Check it out if you want to see more of these kinds of roughs-to-finished pics!
Comics-Prose Tutorial and Website Re-do: This is still happening, and in the works. However, I hope to at least get book 2 done first so I have some time to devote to finishing this… *sigh*
