My life project Terra Aluvis is reaching a size that I can't manage all on my own anymore!
Hello, my dear followers :3
I want to share my ultra-long plan for 2015 with you - I'll need your help and support!
Anyone who is willing to help me, will be welcomed with open arms!
Please, take moment to read through my plans and it would be great if you could answer to the single points - thanks!
GENERAL TASKS I NEED HELP WITH:
1) I want to extend the "team idea" from the mere translation team, that currently exists, to a real "Van Syl Production / Terra Aluvis team".
See the current Van Syl Production - Team Structure
Team tasks, I will gladly accept a helping hand with:
- layout /website design
- translation (german - english): TRANSLATORS NEEDED for Terra Aluvis (update)
- beta reading
- PR, organizing contests, trade fairs, expanding internet presence to other social communities, finding new crew members etc etc etc
- first ideas and concepts for the Terra Aluvis RPG (another great sub-project that's to come)
- something else
- Can you imagine to help me out with something? As for now I am only one person doing EVERYTHING. So I could use help EVERYWHERE, and even if it's only a bit here and there!
In the beginning it would be all on voluntary basis (apart from the translation), since I am still fighting badly to make a living from my art at all. But when Van Syl Production establishes itself more, I'll gladly offer a recompensation for your help.
2) And I want to motivate you, my followers, of course to be more active as well!
- read and comment this journal
- fan contributions: like fan art, fan fics and cosplay (I will give you all information you need)
- support me in the Terra Aluvis deviantart group that's to come in January
- support me by reading my story, watching my art and listening to my music
- give feedack, suggestions and hints
- tell me your open wishes concerning Terra Aluvis
- fan translations of Terra Aluvis into other languages than english? (I will give you all information you need) - The fan translations would be of course available for free for anyone to read and enjoy!
- Can you imagine to contribute something?
CONCRETE TASKS I NEED HELP WITH:
3) In January a Terra Aluvis Group will be (very likely) founded on Deviantart by me.
I need some contributors/moderators to help me out with it!
- Are you willing to help?
4) In January the group translation of Terra Aluvis into English language will start.
For that purpose I will open an online forum/bulletin board, to keep things better organized. I just don't know whether to make the forum accessable to all or only to the team members, since it will contain much WIP stuff.
- Would you be interested in a Terra Aluvis Forum where you can talk with others about misc topics around my story and follow the development more closely?
5) Meet me alias Van Syl Production on German trade fairs 2015!
- Queer-Gelesen (Autorenlesung, January, Wiesbaden)
- DeDeCo (Anime/Manga Con, Feburary, Dresden)
- Leipziger Buchmesse MCC-Kreativ (Books/Manga Con, March, Leipzig)
- YaYuCo - not 100% sure yet - (Yaoi/Yuri Con + Autorenlesung, October, Dachau)
Will I see some of you there?
SPECIAL OFFER: Everyone from my Deviantart-followers who meets me on a convention will get a free little pencil sketch for their convention book!
6) Publishing plans:
- Terra Aluvis Vol. 2 (german, Vol. 1 available here: TERRA ALUVIS VOL. 1 NOW AVAILABLE!)
- first chapters of Terra Aluvis Vol. 1 (english)
- HQ Artbook with artworks, concept ideas, scenes, character descriptions all around Terra Aluvis (english)
- Calendars for 2016 with three themes: Boys Love, neutral/bright art, dark art (already available: 'Irresistible' - Sacris x Jerome Calendar 2015/16)

- Do you look forward to some of these?
Or would you wish to have something else, like T-Shirts etc. as well?
