The books are in! The books are in! WOOOHOOO!!!
I really like how the dust jackets came out. I wasn't expecting them to be shiny, but if you hold them in the light they also kind of sparkle due to the paper I used. There was a last minute request from the printer to adjust the black box around the cover, and it ended up being too thick on the left side, so for the English version I'm going to scoot everything a bit more to the left and make that box a little thinner. I'm also going to go in and adjust some of the blacks throughout the books. I'm guessing these will go to print this weekend, and I'll be sending the clear bookmarks out to print next week. I'll also be making the e-books available in my store probably next week sometime.
The comic hiatus will come to an end next week. I'm not sure if I'll do one pages or two, but there will definitely be at least one new page going up next Friday.
Also, look at this excellent art of Maris I got! I think the artist is still doing commissions if anyone is interested. They are REALLY good: CLICK FOR LINK TO STORENVY
You can pre-order FaLLEN today! Receive a FREE postcard!!
The free postcard will not be available once pre-orders are over. You pretty much only have about two weeks left, so once I have the books in my hand the offer is gone.
I have also updated the store to include:- Maris, Vesta and Vox charms (very limited number!)
- iPhone 6 Plus cases
- Whimsical Waitress Pretty Showdown posters (B3 sized)
I have adjusted shipping for many items, mainly the posters which are now quite a bit cheaper. The newest poster is of this image: CLICK FOR LINK TO PATREON
Patreon is still getting updated despite the lack of comic page updates! I just posted a 4-koma comic strip featuring primarily Vox for the $5 tier and up, and this week I am going to start posting the inked pages to the Whimsical Waitress Pretty Showdown side comic. Those pages will NOT be released online anywhere else!! So if you want a sneak peak at those crazy pages, you need to join the Patreon. Once the books go to print, I will also post a bunch of character blogs to make up for the lack of those lately.
Putting together a graphic novel IS FREAKING HARD. Especially on your own! But just by going in and working on the Japanese version I can tell that the first book is always the hardest. Having a template to work from makes life so much easier. That said, I'm still going to have the book jacket artwork and inside stuff finalized before I do another Kickstarter ever.
