yes, it is coming out  through top cow , book 1  coming out in december, more details on that soon

so i want to talk details on the book itself
it will contain chapter 1,  but more than that it will be a sort of a directors cut of it.

by that i mean there will be additional pages, fun stuff to work through choppier transitions, and some nice moments
it will feature  improved artwork. sunstone was created during the times of a massive artblock and it has helped me  pull through it.

so i believe the book deserves better than just a cut and paste job.

writing itself will also be improved. choppier sentence structures smoothened out where needed.  grammar and spelling fixed while maintaining the conversational tone and pronunciation of words. so by no means am i going oxford english dictionary on it all XD

now for the big problem. this is pretty much gonna be the final cut of sunstone, and right now there are some of you going, so i will be missing out on   stuff because i either don't have the money or live  somewhere where it's  not likely going to be possible  to get the book.

well to answer that i will first remind you that sunstone has been and will be a free to read comic.  while i hope to make some money out of this  endevour, you will not be left behind.

my plan is as follows.

every 4 months one chapter of a comic book will be published, a 100ish pager

it will be published  in print and in digital to purchase 

as each issue comes out i will post the previous issue here in digital format.

this means, when book 2 comes out, book 1 goes digitally for free, and so on.
so in the end everyone gets to read it.

and yes, i am aware that this potentially means that people will just wait for the free version. not even buy the book. it is a definite possibility. it is one that would likely end the publication of it  as well  in the end

 but it is a risk i am willing to take. because ultimately if  this is not the case, and the book does sell well... i will likely double my efforts to keep the comic strips here  coming faster and with more additional stuff.

so only time will tell, but ultimately my point is, nobody will miss out :)

aand now back to work on the new strip.. damn thing has way too many extras in way too many scenes and its taking me longer than i expected XD

also, for the preorders and where to buy, be patient, as soon as the solicits go out and preorders open up i will post notices here :)

I work for and I ran into the first comic in our shipping bins, going out to someone, and I just want to let you know that I will DEFINITELY be buying it. I'm so excited to dive into this new setting, this will be my first comic of this genre, and I can't wait to own a copy of this beautiful work.

Thank you so much for bringing it to us. :giggle:

Just got my copy, and I love it.
Book one shows all the uncertainty, and angst of a first time meeting (hetro, same sex, kinky or vanillia) and how tow people start to get to know each other
it also has the day after situations ect that are so common.
This book is defiantly worth buying and I have my pre-order already set up, really looking forward to the next story.
archmagimon Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2015
I already HAD it here for free. Of course I will buy it! X3
RoyceGrey Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2014
I hope that this is truely profitable.
bell8bestyjka Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2014
the upgraded version looks nice, but the characters do loose some frivolity in the process. 
shiniez Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
frivolity gets replaced by subtlety and nuance of expressions :) 
bell8bestyjka Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2014
i'd buy it even if it was for free on the internet already. just make sure to enable worldwide shipping :3

MUST HAVE HARDCOPY, Ive waited soooo loooooong
lohde Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2014
I just stumbled upon your comic through the 7th place in Bondage Awards (who voted for the upper six? Jeeeezuz!) and was blown away! Instantly (pre)ordered three issues of the first book and I will NOT wait for the free versions here on DeviantArt, but buy every single issue as soon as it's published, 'til the end! Keep up the good work... :-)
Syvenne Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist

Lankylurkr Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2014
Top Cow doesn't have it listed on their calendar yet. Any idea of what price is going to be?
peter-pan-pan Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2014
I'll buy it ! Committing to and looking for the next update ! We love your work
Bindwell Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2014
I'll buy it. I support the work of artists I really like.
GemiGem Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2014
Thanks for keeping us updated.

Is it possible to suggest something radical?  For example buy the physical copy and get a voucher to download the digital copy?  I am aware the digital copy will be free, then why not bundle two together?

It has always been a pet peeve when it's either/or when it comes to physical vs digital. 
Inume14 Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2014
i really would like to buy the physical copies, but i guess you won't deliver to my country :( (please if you do deliver let me know!). So i guess i'll buy the digital!
Angel-in-Black Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I'll be buying the print copies because I really really want this in print.  The free digital copies will be a bonus and something nice to have if I get something that's good for reading digital comics on.  You'll be getting my money for sure though.  Roll on December.  :)
boom17 Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2014
if you read one of my earlier comments you noticed that i requested a signed copy.. so no worries about people just waiting for the free version.. this is good enough that you'll wanna have it in the bookshelf.. ;)
tw1st3ds Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2014
I just check here everyday in search of a pre-order button because I've been throwing money at the screen for the past few days and really I will support this endeavor... So good.
MATT-OPB Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
Buying this, I just found out yesterday about your comic and fell in love with the two girls! :) 
awesomesauce00 Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2014
I plan to buy physical copies of every issue you release :) So excited
tenedria Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2014  Student General Artist
Well according to the comments, at least 500 people already want to buy it xD Just dont forget to advertise for it on comicons, bdsm festivals and other related events... it could help build a bigger fanbase than the one on deviantart. Than again who am I to give advice, you've been in this market for years.
VampirateLycan Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2014
Can't wait for the preorders. Even if I have to have it shipped from America. I will get my hands on a hard copy of this. :)

Brilliant!  Looking forward to seeing on the shelves! :D
Dunkelkatze Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I can't remember and I also can't believe that something like the first drawing was in the comic xD But this proves: the mere story is so well written that such rare flaws don't stand out at all.
VampirateLycan Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2014
I had to go back and check. And reread the whole thing for the fourth time haha
Hypothermic-Poseidon Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
