I’m sorry for the complete silence since my last update – life has been rather hectic!
It’s probably better to list the webcomic as on hiatus for the moment. I’m sorry to disappoint you and I really appreciate your support, but I want to make sure I’m making HoT as good as it can be. I need to take a bit of a break from it, gain some distance and approach the story with fresh eyes. Over the past few months, drawing HoT has become a bit stagnant and I can tell I’m not putting my all into it – which is definitely not what you or the story deserve.
But this won’t be for a long time at all!! (I think that definitely needed to be in bold.) I’ll be getting back to the usual schedule in January, and I still intend to stick to the plan of completing a volume of HoT each year. While I need to take a break, HoT is most definitely going to continue – and next year it’ll be better than ever before.
With that in mind, my original goal of getting issue 5 printed for the Cardiff mini con in Dec is looking very unrealistic – if you’re coming to CICE in december and wanted to pick up a copy, I’ll have some free swag for you (and hopefully Gertrude cookies). I’ll also still be attending conventions as usual, and I’ll be sharing artwork and snippets from other projects I’ve got going in the meantime.
Which is a great time to announce that I’ll be at ThoughtBubble next weekend! It should be an excellent con, and I’m thrilled to have been able to get a last minute table – I’ll be in the Royal Armouries on table 91, next to my excellent, incredibly talented friend Faye Simms.
Thank you all so much for your continued support and patience
Hold on to your butts, as I’m uploading the first page of chapter 5 tonight! Here’s a little sneaky preview:
Aww yes! Haven’t drawn Lettie in a while, so this was a fun page to do…
In other super exciting news – I was on the Awesome Comics Podcast this week, check it out here! Hello to anyone who’s found their way here through that 😀 It was a lot of fun, and it’s definitely worth checking out the whole series if you haven’t already!
I’m going to be doing a proper post about this after the page has uploaded, but if you have a chance please check out Vol 1 over on Amazon – reviews and ratings very much appreciated
Apologies in the delay in uploading the final page – the webcomic is now officially caught up with the print edition! Thank you so much for reading up to this point, I appreciate it
The comic will be on hiatus until the next chapter is fully scripted and designed. It’ll feature two new characters, and *gasp* fighting! Really looking forward to it, and I hope to be back to my usual upload schedule in the next few months. Thanks for your patience!
My other job (working as Games Wales admin) becomes just a teeny bit more insane in the next few weeks, as I’m helping to organize the Wales Games Development Show. If you’re in Cardiff on 19th June and love games, come check it out! It promises to be a super fun day, and is only four days before my birthday so — REVELS!
For anyone who wants to support the comic by buying it in print, you can now order copies from my store over at Comicsy. I plan on starting to send them out when I receive the last part of the Kickstarter order, which should hopefully be within the next couple of weeks.
I also had a few people at MCM ask for issue 4 – rest assured, if you’re collecting the large format single issues, I will be doing a short run of issues 2 – 4 just for you! To make sure I don’t under order, please email me or message me on your social media of choice to let me know which issues you’re after.
While the comic will be taking a break, I certainly won’t be! Please keep following me on Twitter and Facebook for updates on my other projects, and how issue 5 is coming along.
That’s right, folks – I sent the PDF of Volume 1 to the wonderful people over at UKComics on saturday, meaning that if all goes to plan, they should be ready for MCM!
I’m so happy ;_; I literally haven’t slept all week!
In other news, new page is up (17) along with Chapter 4’s cover:
Pretty happy with it – it will be one of the prints included in the £25+ Kickstarter tiers Yet to decide on the other one yet, but pretty sure it will be Gertrude related!
Thanks for your patience! You can now read the entirety of HoT so far here (rather than on DA). Please let me know what you think about the new design – the functionality is pretty much the same, but still not sure about the design so any feedback is appreciated.
In other news, the Volume 1 Kickstarter was SUCCESSFUL! Yaaaay ~
Thank you all so much for your support 😀 I’m so excited to share the printed version of HoT with you! Even better, the feedback I’ve received on the comic has been fantastic (check out the new press page) which means that the future of HoT is definitely bright!
Keep following the Heart of Time Kickstarter page for book updates – I hope to get the book printed for the end of May.
