sunstone book 1 collage+ info by shiniez
sunstone book 1 collage+ info
okay, so book is now out of my hands and being assembled.

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 :)

about 20ish pages of bonus comic content  has now been finished for printed version of sunstone.

off to finish assembling and sending the book to print and then to urgently do some new strips 

huzzah!


for those curious about where to buy the comic, i have a journal posted with  preorder info

we are still working on that second cover as there was a bit of a fuckup with solicits, but  that  second cover will be made, just not sure itf it will require a resolicitation....

sigh...this is actually the most hated part of the whole comicmaking business for me XD


as usual tagged for mature just in case as i don't want people to wander in , see this page and go.. heeey, this looks like something i might like and then BAM BDSM! XD

I think I've been pronouncing your name wrong all along. It's like "shiny" but "shinies" but "shiniez"

I've been pronouncing it "shin-ee-ehz."

Also sad there is going to be an ending, but a story needs a defined ending. Otherwise the stories become so convoluted that you forsake all the time you invested into reading. Having a defined ending is good for both the author and reader. Nevertheless I cant wait till your next work after you finish Sunstone. I'm sure it will be just as good if not better.

hey, sorry, just noticed you said you had a planned ending (which I adore).  It would crack me up in the BEST (most well intentioned) of ways if that ending involved someone or some couple having or adopting a baby.

your story is chock full of really promising parental candidates.

Since we have seen this picture from the "future": shiniez.deviantart.com/art/fif…
i guess that is definitively a possibility (unless anne has just eaten too much).

Of course this is one of the older images so there is a chance that it will be changed and not appear in the soryline.
