Weaponry Chapter 7: Weigh Anchor - Cover
Hello! 

Today is my birthday, and I'll be running a Victorian Gothic Murder Mystery costume party tonight to celebrate (that I wrote, of course!). I'm still writing the script for Chapter 7, so I won't have an update next week. But! I do have a Twitch channel for streaming the colours, so if you're interested in watching me colour the pages, I generally colour them around noon PST here www.twitch.tv/cerltemius

Since we're coming back to colour pages, I'll be posting the b&w white version on the Patreon channel first, and then a week later, I'll release the colour versions for everyone. 

As a reminder, Gun won the vote, so this next chapter will be from his POV.

Thank you for reading!

Once the cover is finished, Chapter 7 will start with Gun's POV.

I'm getting ready to head to DisneyWorld (today!) so, I'm trying to get prepped for going by posting this page early. There is only 1 page left in this bonus chapter, so I need to start working on the cover for Chapter 7 again. I might do a Livestream for it, if anyone is interested?

Please note that next page might be a little late, as I return late Sunday next week.

Thank you for reading!

Weaponry - Dark Road 17
I went out on a boat trip to scatter my mum's ashes, and although it was a motorized boat, I had a bit of a Weaponry-thrill, imagining the minor nuances of life on the seas - the rocking of the boat, and the swift turn of the weather, and difference between the push of the wind and the pull of the tides. It was an interesting experience!

  • Reading: Legend of the Quill ~ Astra Crompton
  • Watching: Red Dwarf

Hello, hello, hello!

After a mad-cap pace and gruelling schedule, which may have permanently bloodshot my eyes I am happy to report:

Legend of the Quill is ready for print!

For those of you who read First Born, this is the next book in the Ul-Zaorith world, and the start of an epic high fantasy trilogy!

The book clocks in at just over 440 pages, and is illustrated by yours truly. It will be released at this time only in soft cover. The selling price is only $25 and you can pre-order your copy here: www.astracrompton.com/legendof…

If you're outside of the Victoria area and would still like to order a copy, please send me a message and I can get a shipping estimate for you. I will be basing my initial order numbers off of the Pre-Order interest, so if you want one, now is the time to get in on this great deal! I'll be signing and doing a sketch in each copy for the Pre-Order, and you'll get a limited edition bookmark to go along with it, so please do order a copy!

For those who aren't familiar with Quill:
This is an epic high fantasy, in the tradition of saga stories. If you like books like The Malazan Book of the Fallen, or Lord of the Rings, or The Eternal Champion, you will probably like my book. It does contain some scenes that may be too graphic for young or sensitive readers. Buckle in for magic, sword fights, ancient prophecies and mischievous Demons -- all set in a unique and fresh setting with new races and cultures for you to explore. I've spent 15 years building this world, with history, languages, maps, flora, fauna, gods and magics, so I truly hope you'll take a chance on me and read The Prophet's Tale, Book One: Legend of the Quill.

A few days from today, the history books show an entry.  An entry of mystery, and portent, as the great powers came down upon the Earth, and, in accordance with the wishes of the mighty King Kong, granted the world a boon.  That boon was you.  And lo, let it be said to all that you are to be wished a Happy Birthday upon that day, with the most excellent and amazing of cakes to partake in! :D (Big Grin) Have your cake and eat it too

History records that, just days from now, a tremendous upheaval took place as the ground cracked and broke apart, tornadoes spun counter to their nature, and even Godzilla bowed as you appeared upon the Earth to grace us with your art. And so it is wished upon you to have a Happy Birthday on that day....and a most excellent cake. :D (Big Grin)  Have your cake and eat it too
