so... sunstone book 1 was the fifth place on the top seller graphic novels lists
this was your doing and you have my sincere thanks.
i did not expect this. sunstone was never supposed to be a moneymaker project and will continue to be a free webcomic to it's very end. but your support meant a lot
last year was tough...
you noticed that my output was significantly lower...well... in the number of strips, but taking into consideration the much longer strips of chapter 4, difference is not that drastic.
there was a reason for this. i kept alluding to a family health crisis. i prefer to keep these things to myself
but now that this is behind us, i can say what made a mess of the year
my mom was diagnosed with a severe heart condition. day before book 1 came out she was admitted to hospital to have stents implanted and the procedure was a success.
last year i was operating under a constant prepare for the worst case scenario kind of pressure.
to ensure i would be able to pay for any unexpected expenses, i took on more work than was perhaps healthy for me... but thankfully now that this is done and behind us i can stop taking on projects.
however, before i found out of sunstone's success, i took on one last additional project, this being an arc of a comic called rat queens. it is a fun book, that i personally like... between that, generation 9 and death vigil, my schedule till april is a bit of a mess but a doable mess.
however, time for the good stuff
this week i will be posting snippets of the final strip for chapter 4- just so you know that it is under construction- and it should be done by next weekend. it is a lengthy bastard XD
then after that i will take a few weeks off just to work on clearing my schedule before we venture into the final chapter of this story.
....beeefore i start on chapter 6 XD
but... there is some very good news.
you see... even tho i can't ditch the previously accepted projects, i will not be taking on any more after the current ones are done.
you made this possible, and the least i can do is focus my output for the fans who surprised me with the overwhelming support
thank you everyone!
