and with new year come updates and clarifications
so, 2014 was both amazing and crappy. those who were paying attention noticed a recurring theme of me mentioning a family health issue that made me focus on paid work in 2014
i don't like sharing details about this so i will leave it at this.
this has improved. it is not resolved but there is optimism.
which is good for sunstone as i can focus on this more !
so as things are looking right now, chapters 5 and 6 will be done this year with some bonus stuff. in a week or so i will post the final strip of chapter 4 in which we finish destroying what was built on poor unstable foundation. and then...
chapter 5. in which a month and three weeks after their first encounter you get to see the moment
after that we will take a step back into the past as for the story to progress, you will need to understand alan....and to do that we will show his time in college with ally, their fallout and reuniting, his time with marion, and ultimately his last 2 defining relationships culminating with anne.
if you find these notes of mine to be spoilery...you haven't been paying attention XD. that is the point of sunstone.
you know it has a happy ending. i make no pretenses about it.
it is not about the ending, but about the journey.
now, about printed versions
book 2 with expanded and improved chapter 2 will be out in april. once that one is out i will post the digital version of book 1 here for free.
i made it clear from the get go that sunstone was not about making money and i stand by it.
i would post it immediately, but there is something to be said about not pissing off the publisher XD
i will soon be annoying about the importance of preordering book 2 also...
reason is ma simple one. i was an idiot and learned much from death vigil.
comics usually sell a lot of issue 1's. reason are speculators. people who buy copies of first books of comics just in case series makes it big, or is made into a movie and then they resell it for a large profit.
you would think this was a good thing...here is the kicker. publishers know this, so they usually overprint fist issues, and then print significantly less copies of book 2 as there is an expected massive dropoff in sales numbers.
so bottom line is this, preordering once again helps regulate the printrun numbers so if you want to own a printed book, i do wholeheartedly recommend it.
if you don't want a printed version then ... yknow... this part wan't about you
so anyhoo, for now amazon has opened book 2 preorders
and because amazon canada is being utterly useless i'm gathering comic stores that carry the book and can have it preordered as well
so this store here offers mailing of the book Big Pete's128 Lonsdale AveNorth Vancouver, B.C.Canada V7M 2E5Twitter : @bigpetescomicsWebsite : www.bigpetescollectibles.com/Blog: bigpetescollectibles.blogspot.…email: firstname.lastname@example.org: 604-983-2325
