sunstone issue 1 both variant covers by shiniez

i am working on the last 3 to 4 strips of chapter 4, depending on whether they will grow monstrously oversized.

and now, for all of you who are thinking of buying the printed version


second cover is unavailable for now due to a fuckup with solicitation... which happens to me with EVERYTHING XD
but this cover will be made and i will post all the info on this when i get the exact date :)


for the regular ally/lisa cover version:

i will paste in a journal all the preorder links we gathered so far, thanks everyone who contributed :)


 here is an image comics preordering helper for those who know how to use this :)
imagecomics.com/comics/release…




now, some important info for people who want to actually buy the printed book , and haven't preordered it


preorders are crucial. this is not a book  you will likely find in any comic shop and just buy it there.  this is the fact of the business.

indie books aren't something stores buy in bulk and stockpile. truth is, they are rarely sure sellers, which means  that shop owners can't really dump an investment on stocking them as inventory and will rather use the money to stock up on a sure seller book, your marvel and dc books and your proven independent hits like walking dead, saga and so on

this is perfectly reasonable.  shop owners have bills to pay as well XD

this is where preorders and asking the store to put the book on your pull list helps. beyond that preorders generally dictate the size of a print run with indie books, so usually  if you are late.... and the book has not been a crazy seller....there is a likelihood that's all she wrote XD

meaning, the print was sold out and no reprint is planned

so , if you plan on buying the book consider the preorder, if not , it's fine with me, don't get me wrong, it's just, i learned a lot from my other comic death vigil about how this stuff works so now , i am a little bit smarter. and soon after death vigil is all done i plan on making a summary journal on experiences and what i have learned  from the whole  endeavor which might help some other  upcoming comic creator avoid  the pitfalls :)


so, here are preorder links i got so far, if you know of a store in your country that has preorders available feel free to note me and i'll add it to the list :)

so, in general, amazon has opened their preorders 

www.amazon.com/Sunstone-Stjepa…

and for European people, archonia.com has opened their preorders

let's just keep brainstorming! by shiniez
let's just keep brainstorming!
yeah... tho this may not be a scene from chapter 5 is it indicative of her annoyance XD

by it not being a scene, i mean i am not sure if this conversation will happen in chapter 5 or in alan's story

Pre-ordered Sunstone yesterday from Amazon.com, where it's #1 in both the "Romance" and "Erotica" graphic novel categories.

Hi!

First things first: I love that comic. <3 I think I never followed any other publication in the internet as thoroughly as Sunstone!

Now to the other reason I write this:

I'm not sure if it already has been asked -or answered- but I just didn't know where to start looking for it, amongst all those comments everywhere. Sorry if it has! ^^"

The publiched book one, does it hold the complete story of that what we know as Chapter One from DeviantArt? Or will it be cut in more than one book? If so: do you know in how many, approximately? Also, if the sale for issue one goes fine. do you have an idea how fast the next book probably will be released?

I'm really sorry for asking questions like this, I know they must be difficult to answer, before even book one is out.

Thing is: I really want to order the physical book! But since it probably means, I will need to preorder every following issue as well, if I want to be able to get hold of all issues and collect the whole story... -and since I need to plan my spendings, even as little as your comic, a bit ahead: it would be really helpful to at least get a faint idea. Even if it means you'd need to do a total in-official guess, based on other releases you got published.

I guess I'd rip my hair out if I managed to get issue one, but miss the next ones and never got a raly chance to place them all next to each other on a shelf in my home. ^^"

I apologize for the inconveniences this question may cause, and want to thank you in advance for any answer! =)
