so...time to talk ravine
the book tanked...
and i mean the book tanked hard.
we are talking about 5000% losses on effort versus profit XD
on book 2 i received profits that would usually pay for me making 5 pages of a comic. ravine was a 160 page book
so... where do i take it from here
do i quit?
the book is good. i have no doubts about that. book 2 is far better than book 1 and book 3 will surpass them both
but the facts are simple. the book never found an audience.
so i have made a decision
i will apply to ravine the same approach i have done with sunstone
true, i never had any intention of publishing sunstone and it was the fans demand that made me make that decision. and you know what?
fans stepped up!
in fact the way things are going there is a good chance i will in late 2015 onward focus on sunstone very intensively. fans have more than earned it, and for that they have my most sincere gratitude
and now, i am going to do the same with ravine.
ravine is turning into a webcomic first format
don't get me wrong i have no delusions of making any big money from this book but it is a labor of love... looots and looots of love XD
same quality, same style, just, starting in 2015, book 3 will be posted page by page online first and as each book is finished it will be subsequently published in printed format
so there it is.
this is going to be my third deviantart account now XD it will take some time till i upload the first 2 books as i am reformatting them for an easier read
and please, don't think this is a bad thing.
i can't even describe to you the love that i have for the webcomic format.
it is a far more immediate format that lets me interact with people more often and far easier
