The comics are on hold a little bit because I’m putting hovertext in the book, which will hopefully soon be done woooo.
I’m quite anti-plan right now. It’s actually really good for me. So. Er. The whole predictable updating thing is going totally out the window, folks. I will still update somewhat regularly, but there will be no self-imposed deadlines for possibly ever. This means that you may get surprise comics when I feel like it, which I guess is a plus.
I’m not just saying that to make this look a little brighter. There have been times when I’ve had an awesome comic idea, felt inspired to make it, and then thought, “eh, a comic came out this morning, I don’t have to make this one for days yet.” And then I put it off, forget it, lose the bit of paper upon which I wrote the idea, and the comic is lost forever. This way, those lost comics might actually see the light of day.
Oh! And I also forgot to mention, in under two weeks I’m moving from a flat on my own to a house with 7 other people and the internet situation has not been finalised and basically it’s going to be chaos, both in my brain/heart and in my practical stuff. I will try to stay creative with you as much as possible.
122 pages of the first 100 Poly in Pictures comics. Trade paperback size, full colour.
- The ebook. It’s $2.99 (about £1.86), of which I get 80%.
- Alternatively, PayPal £1.50 to lotte dot lodge at gmail dot com and I’ll email you the ebook’s epub file. This option is slower, but cheaper for you and I get more money.
- The paperback. To the UK and the US at cheapest and slowest delivery it’s $32.94 (about £22), of which I get $4 (about £2.50).
You can preview the first 15 pages and everything.
The paperback really is excellent quality. Lovely paper, well-bound, sharp photos, overall I am very pleased. Just thought I’d let you know. 🙂 Here is a not-very-good photo of how it looks. Each page also has the hovertext of its comic on it, too.
Today I decided that I would spend half an hour a day working on a Poly in Pictures book until it was done. Five hours later, it was done, slightly ahead of schedule.
I’ve sent it to the printer websitey thingy, and they say it’ll be about £23 for you lot with postage included, I think. (I think I get £3.50-£4 per copy.) I’ve ordered a proof copy, and if it’s okay I’ll let you all know how you can buy it around early June. It should also be available as an e-book.
How pleasing! I’m a bit scared.
