We did it! Yesterday evening, Rosarium Publishing (the publisher for my comic, Chadhiyana) reached the goal for their IndieGoGo campaign, the funds of which are, in part, going toward print runs for a number of upcoming books, including the first Chadhiyana trade!

This is a final reminder that the Rosarium Publishing IndieGoGo campaign (publisher of my comic, Chadhiyana) ends during the day on Wednesday, May 4th: http://bit.ly/rosariumpub. Thus, this is also your final chance to pre-order Chadhiyana volume 1 (collecting issues 1 - 6) and get the exclusive 8-page mini comic that comes with it (see my blog post last week on http://jmdesantis.com for more information on the comic).

Early this morning, Rosarium Publishing, the publisher for Chadhiyana (my medieval Indian assassin comic) and many other diverse books, launched its first major crowdfunding campaign. Appropriately named Rosarium Publishing: The Next Level (http://indiegogo.com/projects/rosarium-publishing-the-next-level) through the campaign, Rosarium Publishing is hoping to move out of the print-on-demand market and into a position to make small print runs of their books (Chadhiyana included).

The wait is finally over! The third installment of the In the Company of Shadows storyline is available in Chadhiyana #3. For those who don’t know, Chadhiyana is my medieval Indian fantasy series published through Rosarium Publishing, and this next installment promises to be a good one.
