The Heart of Time is a web comic written and illustrated by Sarah Millman. It follows the adventures of Amelia, a bad-tempered teenager and her pug, Gertrude. Amelia stole her father’s time machine (a modified Vespa) after an argument, but soon became lost in time when she discovered it was more difficult to drive than she thought.

New Page – 22/08/14, Melksham and London MCM

Hi all, sorry about the lateness of this week’s page! In other news: as you can see from my appearances post at the top of this page I’ve been confirmed for two cons that will be happening soon! First up is Melksham, where I’ll be appearing at a panel Ian from Razarhawk has asked me to be a part of :D I’ll be chatting with Ian, Jamie Lambert from Dexter’s Half Dozen and Vince Hunt from Red Mask From Mars about how to construct a story and our writing processes. If you’re in the Wiltshire at the end of this month, check it out (our panel is on Sun 31st at 3.30).

I can also finally confirm that I WILL have a table at London MCM this October, hooray! More details as they come :)

Thanks for your patience everyone x

New Page 04/08/14, Birmingham ICE

Hi all! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Chapter 4 starts today and has been updated here, on DA and over on Tumblr – I’m hoping to carry on with the mon + wed updates I was doing before the hiatus but we’ll see how it goes :)

Thanks to everyone who came to ICE! It was a lovely little con and was great to see some familiar (and unfamiliar) faces making an appearance. Next up could be Melksham – I may be part of a panel but nothing’s confirmed yet, will keep you updated!

Stay awesome HoTties xxx

CON REPORT : MCM May ’14

Another great weekend for team HoT. If you’ve been following my Twitter or Facebook feeds, you would’ve seen HoT first cosplayer EVER! Head on over to the Facebook page if you want to see Rae’s epic cosplay of Amelia :)

I’m always overwhelmed by the response HoT gets from new readers and returning ones – I really appreciate all your support! It encourages me to work hard at making HoT the best it can possibly be, and I’m confident that there is much more to come from it in the future. Thank you so much to everyone who stopped by to say hello or buy a comic, hope you all had a great weekend.

So, here’s my haul:

20140527_131053

Focused much more on artwork than comics this time round, though comic village was even bigger than last October! Didn’t get to see half the artists and comics that I intended to… Though I did manage to get round to Silvyen’s table, she’s so incredibly talented and I’ve been waiting to pick up a print after seeing her work on DA. Also, Evelyn Hewett – she had a new Akira print that was boss as always, which means I now have three of her prints on my wall (I’m such a neeeeerd…) Me and Sian were opposite an Australian artist called Samantha Calcraft, and I swapped a copy of HoT for her Fin comic. It has a really great sense of humour, and I found her mermaid character endearing and very well written (and you can never go wrong with sharkdogs). I absolutely LOVED the print I picked up from Chloe Citrine – such bright, wonderful colours, and I do have a soft spot for Kyary Pamyu Pamyu which it reminded me of in a brilliant way. Also, Paul Duffield’s “The Firelight Isle” – this is an incredible title, and it’s tone and artwork reminded me a lot of Avatar: The last Airbender, which is NEVER a bad thing. It was just a preview so very excited to see the rest of the project. NooshieBeans very kindly swapped her Pokemon print for one of my HoT cover prints – I didn’t manage to get round to her table which is a shame as her artwork is lovely! Will make an extra effort to find her stall next time…

Also got to see Anastasia Catris, Moon, Matt Dyson, Rob Cureton, Lewis Terry, Kayleigh Powis, Terra Jacks and the Footloose guys, and finally managed to actually go out after a con and socialize – which made it the most enjoyable con for a long while! Felt like I’d been run over by a truck afterwards but a fun weekend was had by all.

EDIT: I KNEW I’d forget something!! Also did an interview with M.J. Starling which was a lot less daunting than I thought it would be – he’s an excellent interviewer and can’t wait to hear the finished product (though I’m sure I’ll cringe at my answers on more than one occasion…) Will post a link when it’s up!

In other news, the book I ordered from Koyamori was waiting for me when I got home:

20140527_131436So pretty….

Chapter 3 is now complete! I will be starting 4 in a few weeks, sorry I can’t be more exact… I have a few jobs I need to finish first before I can concentrate on it! Until then, I’ll be updating filler comics featuring the HoT cast every monday. Sorry everyone, and thanks for your patience! Till next time HoTties x
