Heh. Kind of a macabre title, I suppose, but fitting. (if you don’t get it, see previous post)
First off, I would like to thank ALL OF YOU kind and wonderful people for all of the supporting comments and emails. You guys are the greatest bunch of people, and I could not be luckier to have fans like you. Thank you all. You all have been so amazingly good and kind to me. I am going to try to be worthy of that kindness.
As such, I’m declaring an end to the general lethargy that has been prevalent throughout this site as of late. I’m updating again. Colors for this week’s page will be a little late (still getting back into the swing of things a touch), but the important part is that there is in fact a page. And more important than that is that I’m writing again. I haven’t said much on this front, but the truth is that a lot of the delays have been the result of me simply not writing script. I’ve “known” where the story is going, and what pitfalls and discoveries are awaiting our heroes for quite some time now, but I just haven’t had the script for it. That part of my brain has just been dead. But I started writing again the other week. The rest of this chapter is ready to go, just needs to be drawn. So we’re going full steam ahead again.
So here’s what I’m doing. There are roughly 10 weeks between now and Finder’s Keepers’ 2nd anniversary (Halloween). There are 8 pages left in chapter 4, and subsequently the end of volume 1. So, here’s the deal I’m making with all you amazing fans: you’ve been endlessly good to me, time for me to do the same. There will be NO MISSED UPDATES between now and the end of the chapter. With the anniversary you’ll be seeing a new website that’s been in the works to improve on some of the current site’s reading features, and to correct others that were great ideas but didn’t work out so well.
I can’t pinpoint a date, but you’ll also see Finder’s Keepers become available as a trade paperback sometime this fall (absolutely in time for Christmas). Sadly a lot of the details are dependent on the printers. But, it’s happening.
More immediately, I’m going to be at Baltimore Comic Con this weekend, table A220 (wherever that is, we’ll find out together!). I haven’t been to BCC since the early days of Comedity. It’ll be interesting to go back and be in a more traditional comic convention environment. I hope I’ll see some of you fantastic fans there.
