The ball is starting to roll for City of Angles. Feel the hype, yo.
There’s a new VIP Club story! I figured if I’m about to launch the “Give me your money dammit” aspect, I may as well have something to throw money AT. The story’s called coa//00a: Are We There Yet? and it represents the VIP idea quite well — an in-depth exploration into some intriguing aspect of the city that doesn’t merit a blockbuster 100k story starring main characters. The VIP club is my way to chase down interesting notions and show a bit of the mystery going on behind the scenes.
The link won’t work unless you’re a VIP Club member (and remembered to write down your name and password; email me of you lost them). Feel free to discuss the story here but I ask that you be spoiler-conscious. If you’d like to join up, the Early Bird special is still on for two days; if you’re a brand new reader I’ve also got the paid VIP application up. US$7 gets you in the door for life. Less than the cost of one printed book (but giving me as much profit as two printed books, so hey, score.)
Commissioned artwork is in the pipeline for our trio of main characters — Dave Smith, and Penelope ‘n Gregory Yates. Oh, and Marcy Wei. But wait! Who’s Marcy? You’ll meet her in coa//003. After the art rolls in I’ll be doing some advertising for the series through webcomic ad networks. (You may see such ads on the site, I haven’t decided yet. I’ve sunk a lotta cash into this project and wouldn’t mind recouping it.)
Oh, and coa//001 is finished. Like, as in I proofread and spellchecked and called it a day. See? I am learning! I CAN finish a story completely before moving on to another one.
Finally, Stars Fall 06 is finished, edited, compiled, and the book is almost done. Mad thanks to Lawrence Chu and my sis for helping with all that. I’ll have it available as soon as I can, and London’s Fog will go on sale that same day. Huzzah!
Next up is coa//002: Orientation Day. I’ll be working on outlines and getting some scenes together soon. Keep an eye out!
