It's Time

If you haven't already, you should go read the note on the front page of Wayfarer's Moon. It's okay. We'll wait.

sound of bad whistling

Okay, you're back.

So yes, we will start updating on July 6th. Yes, that's two months away, but we really wanted to have some pages backlogged so we don't start updating and then immediately miss a week. This isn't as altruistic as it sounds. We just really don't want to get murdered.

The big news is that we'll be starting a second series called (tentatively) 'Wayfarer's Moon: Tales.' I'm completing scripts right now and we're talking to artists who may be interested in doing the pencils. We will announce a firm start date once we actually get one.

Tales will feature short stories about the Wayfarer's Moon world and will concentrate on events and characters around the main story. If you've ever wondered what happened to Dael and the caravan that Lily left at the start of the series, you'll find out (cause that's the first story).

The idea is that between Wayfarer's Moon and Tales, we won't ever have a dead week and there will be even more reason for you all to come back to the site. I will, of course, be doing my usual blogging.

So, thank you to everyone who's asked about Wayfarer's Moon and to those of you who kept coming back. We appreciate that you've stayed with us.

Great news!

I'm not surprised that "Leigh ... was spending a lot of time on every page." Work that good (better than many professional comics) has to take a lot of effort.

Great news!
Also, what's up with "Art the Wanderer"???? Is it being published or are we going to see the return of our favorite hero?

I admit, I am excited.

Thanks, CWC! Leigh has definately poured a lot of time and effort into the comic :)

Art is currently being reviewed by an agent. If all goes well and the agent accepts me as a client, then the next step will be getting Art in front of publishers. So cross your fingers! :)

Good to hear, Blue Sun!

Happily a two month wait will melt away like 60 tons of soft chocolate. Faster if we burn more hydrocarbons.

Though adding more work because you've got too much work to do seems like a novel way of reducing your stress.

if the agent accepts you as a client try to get him/her, (whichever) to get you with baen books, they're good people.

It's not necessarily more work, just a shifting of priorities. I spend most of my free time working on various projects, it's actually kind of nice to have more direction.

Instead of 'Should I work on X or Y or Z?' it's 'I need to work on P & P.' I'm just focusing the chaos like a laser.

I'll remember that, gunner. Thanks!
