I apologize to everyone I was watching, and everyone who was watching, commenting, faving and collecting. Cyborg Butterfly went out of business in April of last year and I hadn't the heart to deal with any of the issues of the closing until tax time rolled around. I also killed my hard drive last year, losing all the pictures of my sold works, except for the ones posted here; very aggravating.
I decided to end the business for economic and personal reasons: for the former, I wasn't selling. The economy was bad and the time and effort and money I was dumping into the business were becoming too much like work and a lot less like fun. I want to thank my friends for helping me so much, and all you people who made me feel like my work was worth the trouble.
For the latter reason, I realized I wanted to spend more time writing, and so I have been working seriously on my novel for the first time in my life. I have almost completed the rough draft (only one and three-quarters chapters to go!) and though it still needs a lot of work, I feel encouraged by my progress in the past year. I hope you will read the first chapter when I post it up here. I don't know when that will be, but I hope it will be soon. I also hope you will offer your honest input.
