Greetings, it feels right to start this year with news. The digital edition of the 3rd novella (Crossing-Over: The Sustenance Festa) is now available on Amazon: www.amazon.com/dp/B083S3CGLJ
The word count is a bit higher than the 2nd book. Now the print edition will be in the works and is expected to be available during the Summer. It's gonna look great and I can't wait to get my hands on it. I can write 'make a book trilogy' out of my bucket list soon enough. Other than that, I was able to get in touch with art partners to handle some stuff I'd like to get done... That said, I am a bit behind on some buffers even though I took December off. But yes, I can go back to focusing my efforts on catching up what I've missed for comic pages.
I think I will be mirroring Chapter 8 releases on Webtoons, just to try it out. ComicFury is a nice host but I could use more exposure. I will be sure to drop a link so let everybody know when it starts. Reminder to support the Patreon if you are feeling generous. Thanks!
Moving to Pixiv and Mastodon
What it says on the tin, I will edit this journal with links when the time is right. As someone who's used this site for frankly too long, this isn't a choice I make lightly. Had a lot of good times here back then when it was the main art hub. I've enjoyed seeing works from talented folks here & interacting with them too. Of course, I'll still take a look at the forums in case I need help for special projects. Anyway, see you all on the other side.
Christmas Break News
Hello, Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas all. Hope you all are doing well. Some news to show some activity before 2020 rings in. Edits for the 3rd novella have reached the final 10k- words. It's the month of celebratory preparations so Ch 9 should be in soon enough, while the last Ch will likely bleed into the following year. I take Miyamoto's view when it comes to making stuff: A good game later is better than a lacking one now. As for the webcomic, we're on the usual break as new outlines and scripts are being made. Of course, there's something to clarify: I'll be taking an overseas trip next month which will affect the schedule a bunch. That
Watched Joker (2019)
That film was kinography. Managed to be good without relying on special effects and the acting was superb. The creative liberties taken were not too bad to the source material. It's not the Joker who Batman fights but more of an inspiration. What you see in the Oscar-winning movie trailer is exactly what you get. More stories need to go back to the basics and take risks like this one did. If you don't take care of your brands, you end up with something like Nu-SW.
Comic Promoting Opportunities
Any ideas? Any good ideas? I might as well as this question while it makes sense to. I believe I've done what's normally expected as far as signing up for comic lists and such places for promotions. Things were much simpler when that advertising site still existed, it's name isn't coming to me at this time. Just wanted to throw that out there since I'm open to suggestions as usual. What outlets for exposure do I still need to tap into? If it's not too ridiculous then it's worth giving a shot.
This is more like a reminder for myself but 20% off previous e-book novellas (Kindle version) will take place during this month and next month for this year:
CO: Forty Year Feud - 1/17 to 1/24
CO: Shade Ops - 2/14 to 2/21
I call it my 2020 [heh] % promotion!
