Fox & Willow is 70% Funded!

Posted in blog | Tagged , , | Leave a comment
So the Fox & Willow Kickstarter is 70% funded! Huzzah! Thank you all so much! 😀 We have about 13 days left, so I’m popping in for another plug to pledge or spread the word  – anything you can do to help would be brilliant. For those of you who have been keeping up to date with our comic on Tapas or Webtoons or even the main SSD site – we’ve obviously been on hiatus for several months to work on this Kickstarter, but we will be updating pages this week. (Patreon got the updates this morning, whee!) Also, Aimo and I were working on another Kickstarter-funded project  – a comic anthology – The Gothic Tales of Haunted Futures, and we had about 10 pages of full color to work through, between the scripting and the lettering and lovely art and all that jazz, so we were focused on that… Read more

The Fox & Willow Kickstarter is now live (actually it went live on Tuesday, but I’m silly and forgot to post here…so!) Here’s the linky link -> Kickstarter We’ve been live for only a couple of days and we’re already nearly half-way to our goal amount so I’m utterly thrilled about that – thank you all so much! In the meantime, there’s about 14 hours left if you want to grab the Early Bird pricing on a sweet hard cover edition (with or without signed bookplates) so if this was on your to-do list – go take advantage of it while you can!… Read more

Advocacy in the Time of Bullshit

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , | 1 Comment
So this week was a bit of a mess on a number of fronts. And maybe it’s just the fact that I’ve been on steroids for a couple of weeks and I’m also menopausing like crazy, but I just…have no more patience. For anything. (Yes, the steroids helped – I can hear again, huzzah. Boo, the menopause continues and hotflashing is shit and yes some of the herbal remedies help, but still. Really, body? Right now?) There have been some good things – the kickstarter I’m contributing a story to funded, so I’ve already turned in a script to the editor for that. Awaiting feedback so I can talk to Aimo about how we want to set the pages up a bit better. I also have the formatting for A Symphony of Starlight done, so with any luck I’ll have paperback versions ready to go by the end of November,… Read more

Baking and Blogging

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , , , | 1 Comment
Another year come and gone, I suppose.  I wasn’t going to bake today and I wasn’t going to blog today, but here I am, doing both. So much for intentions. I know everyone is doing a sort of end of year round up – and figured I might as well do one too – it’s been pretty crazy overall on a number of levels, but let’s see: House Stuff – if you may recall last January we discovered mice had basically trashed our basement – this led to an enormous loss of personal property. Many items that couldn’t be replaced had to be thrown out – but I tried to look at it from a cathartic viewpoint. Chances are, most of that stuff was just lingering about – pieces from our past that we couldn’t quite manage to get rid of, or just random kid crap – or just…stuff we… Read more

CrowdSurfing for CrowdSourcing

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , | Leave a comment
One of the things about side projects is that they can have a tendency to cost money. I’m no stranger to that – I ran my gaming forum for nearly 10 years out of my own pocket, to the tune of $400 a year.  I never asked anyone to contribute to it because I never really thought about it. It was my project, and my responsibility and that’s all there was to it. In hindsight, maybe I should have. We talk about what an item’s intrinsic value is, though so much of that is in the eye of the beholder. (Just look at all the crazy stuff people collect – a worthless stuffed toy to you might mean everything to me.) And the same is true for consumed media. Ebooks in particular have been in the thick of it – the argument of whether selling books at .99 is a… Read more
