Chapter Three Good for Launch

Hello Lovelies,

I got the second round of edits back from the editor, and I’m happy to say, we are good for launch! I’ve started painting the first pages in chapter three, and while I won’t give away any spoilers, I will say that page 57 and 58 are extra special.

The new art archival box and acid free tissue paper arrived in the mail. But silly me, it looks like I should have ordered a second pack of acid free tissue. I use the tissue to separate the original pages from one another, and this protects the artwork from discoloring over time.

The next page will be uploaded in two weeks on Tuesday, December 19th.

Hugs,

First Box Filled

Hello Lovelies,

Just sent the revised version of chapter three off to the editor. The first round of feedback was very helpfulI. I can’t wait to see how version 2.0 is received!

Also, I just completely filled an art archival box with completed pages. Dang! So many pages! In order to accommodate future pages, I hopped over to my favorite art supply web-store, Jerry’s Artarama, and bought a new art storage box and some acid free tissue paper.

The next page will be uploaded Tuesday, December 5th.

Hugs,

Hope you enjoy page 50! Wow, can you believe we hit 50 pages? Also, we are coming towards the end of chapter two. There will be five more pages, and then we’ll be in chapter 3!

Currently, I’m in the process of finalizing the story board for chapter 3 with my editor. I love how it’s progressing, and I’m excited to start sharing it will all of you.

The next page will be uploaded in two weeks on Tuesday, November 21st.

Important Update

Hello Lovelies,

Back in May, I proposed that if Patreon support reached $30 a month, this comic would switch from updating every other week to weekly. Since then, Patreon pledges have grown. And although we haven’t hit the $30 mark, I’m still very grateful! Thank you to all my wonderful Patreons!

This is why, it has been very difficult for me to make the following decision. I need to postpone my $30 Patreon challenge. I can still update every other Tuesday, like I’ve been doing. But for the foreseeable future, I cannot update every week. It’s not something I want to do, but it is something I must do, so I can meet the obligations of my day job.

My job requires me to acquire two certifications within a limited time frame. To get these certifications I need to pass two very difficult tests. However, between working full time and making this comic, I haven’t had much time to study. Initially, I didn’t see this as a problem, because I was getting continuously faster at making pages. However the deeper I dove into this comic creating journey, unexpected tasks kept popping up. Like realizing the original plot wasn’t that great, and then quickly studying story structure, character design, and plot, so I could rewrite a better story. Or looking back at old pages, and realizing that I REALLY needed an editor.

So even though I’ve gotten faster at certain aspects of the comic creating process, it’s still my first comic, and I’m learning. I want to make this the best story I can, and I want it to be entertaining, fun and inspiring to readers. To do this, and still keep my day job, I need to stick with updating every other week for now.

If any of you decide to lower or end your pledges, I completely understand. However, I would be extremely grateful for your continued support. Because even as a comic that updates every other week, it still takes a lot of time, thought, heart, and money to keep it going. You patronage is both an emotional and financial lifeline for me.

Thank you for your time.

Edited Pages are Here!

Hello Lovelies!

Last page update, there were many of you who had guesses of what the pale girl’s name might be. I was tickled pink by your theories. However, I will not confirm, nor deny any names. A girl must keep her secrets. 😉

On a side note, there have been several site improvements:

1. I noticed there was some lag time when uploading the site comic’s page. To help thinks run smoother, I’ve replaced all the page thumbnails will smaller resolution versions.

2. I’ve also replaced all previously uploaded pages with proofread/edited versions.I strongly encourage all readers to go back, and read through the updated pages. I’ve cleaned up the pages ascetically, corrected spelling and punctuation mistakes, and I’ve also gone with different wording choices on several pages. For instance, the Eastern and Western kingdoms now have proper names. Go back and read through to find out what the kingdom’s are called.

The next page update will be Tuesday, September 5th.

Hugs,

World Map

Hello Lovelies!

It’s the first day of August, which means we are one step closer to my favorite season, Fall!

As part of the rewriting and editing process, I’ve been working on some new projects. For one of these projects, I created an official map of the world that the story takes place in. I never created a “world” map before, and it was really fun project! At a future date, I’ll post the world map on Patreon.

I’ve also been writing backstories for three central characters. Two of these characters you have already met, and the third you’ll meet either in chapter three or four. Any guesses who these three characters might be? 😉

This month has five Tuesdays, so you will get and extra page uploaded at the end of the month. The next update will be Tuesday, August 15th.

Hugs,
