If you ever publish with a professional print company, make sure to get your stuff in before november, or even october if you can. I thought I would be able to but I ran into the print issues i previously mentioned, so here I am in the end of the year rush. Things slow down at the end of the year, and queues build up making print jobs take longer. Instead of continually pushing back the release date, I will now proclaim a definitive 'early 2014'release for Orange Crows Volume 2. I will have more details as I find them out. We are almost there!!!
As usual I don't like to comment until I know what's going on, but this has taken longer than I wanted and I apologize. I also took this long to update because I was trying to think of something I can do to make up for the delay. So after much thought I am going to do not one, not two, but THREE things for you!
1) First of all, all Kickstarters and Pre-order folks will be recieving another 5x7 signed art print that will ONLY be available to you guys and gals as a symbol of being first in line, and these won't be available after the book is released. So now you will have two pieces of exclusive orange crows art, and and orange crows button coming your way! (plus more for the kickstarters of course!)
2)Second, I will be revealing a new outfit for Natalie this week from volume 2! Don't worry, each character wears multiple outfits in volume 2, so there will still be some surprise left when you read the book!
3)Lastly, This week I will be sending you the first chapter of Orange Crows volume 2 digitally for you to enjoy while you wait! That's 29 pages of fun! I've just been trying to research and find out a good filehosting site i can use to distribute the chapter to you all. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know!
Moving forward into next year, I wll be trying to interact with the community a lot more! I've just been so busy getting everything together as a one man show that I haven't been on and updating as much as I'd like to. I really appreciate you all for hanging in there with me for this long and for still caring about Orange Crows!
At least once a week I want to put up some fun sketches and drawings of the characters. But I never know what to draw so I want you all to help me! You can post on my deviantart, the orange crows facebook, or the orange crows website with suggestions for what drawings you want to see of the characters. Want clown Cierra (i don't...)? Then suggest it! If you don't have any suggestions then you can just post a +1 saying you agree with an idea that was previously posted. I'll draw at least one of the most interesting ideas or the ones you all want to see the most each week!
Happy New Years everyone, and here's to an awesome 2014, filled with witches, warlocks, and all sorts of fun!
