Four people have claimed free exclusive sketches for the back of Issue 2…but two of them have asked for scenes that would spoil Issue 3. (And one of them still hasn’t worked out what he wants. Somehow I suspect he’s overthinking it.)
The spoilery sketches are getting drawn, but will be put in issue 3. Which means I may as well make that issue’s last two sketch slots available to everyone, along with the two remaining for Issue 2.
In other words, if you want to claim a sketch, here’s what’s still up for grabs:
- Sketches that DO NOT SPOIL Chapter 3: Two
- Sketches that spoil merrily away: Two
Same rules as before apply.
In the meantime, the current round of fundraising to put all this together is still ongoing, with fabulous prizes for anyone who donates before September 30. And remember issue 1? It’s now up on Amazon. So please, if you pick it up, go there and leave a review!
Now that issue #1 is in print, it’s time to start thinking about issue #2. Specifically, bonus material. Even more specifically, the extra sketches in the back.
In that spirit, the first four people to reply to this post will get a free custom sketch. It will be emailed personally to you, and not made available to anyone else in the world, except those discerning, intelligent, sexy people who who purchase issue #2.
Same rules as last time:
- The sketch has to be BICP-related. Crossovers are allowed; they’ll count as parody, so they won’t violate copyright law.
- No porn. My grandmother is planning on buying this (assuming she can figure out how to navigate Lulu, anyway).
- Don’t ask for spoilers of future events. In fact, please don’t ask for things that were revealed in chapter 3, either. Keep it to chapters 1 and 2.
As usual, general commissions are also open.
Four Three Two One slot still available!
Between technical glitches, a shipping problem, multiple test printings, and a visit with family smack in the middle of it all, sometimes it felt like this was never going to come together. But here it is, folks: But I’m A Cat Person, chapter 1, the print version!
It will also be available directly through Amazon in about a week — although my profit margin is lower there, so please buy through one of these two channels if you can ^_^
As with the ebook, this contains new bonus art on every page, plus four pages of exclusive bonus sketches and material in the back. Plus, look at that shiny cover. How can you resist?
The two versions of the printing are slightly different. Amazon’s has nicer binding and a stronger cover, and handles the page margins better. However, Lulu’s has higher-quality paper in the interior, and the printing of the text is slightly cleaner. I’ll make photos of both versions available soon, to help you decide which to buy! (Or you could always get one of each and compare them yourself ^_~)
Thanks to everyone who’s supported this comic so far. Information about issue #2 will be coming soon!
All right, folks, this is it: we’re officially in the “asking for money” stage.
The short version is, I have a proof copy, but it has some issues which need to be fine-tuned before it’s high-quality enough to sell. I hope issues 2 and 3 will come together more quickly, but it’s still going to take time…and money.
That’s where the fundraising comes in. I’m trying my hand at raising funds through Kickstarter, a site that helps creators and innovators collect donations for a wide variety of projects. If the funding goal isn’t met in the next 30 days, I get nothing…but if it is, not only do I get the money, donors get all kinds of awesome rewards, including:
• Ebooks and print issues
• Custom artwork
• Original lineart from BICP pages
• Thanks in print
• Thanks in a video, starring myself and a real live cat
• Fame and glory
At the highest level of donation, you get…one spoiler. Seriously. Ask me any question about where the comic is going, and I’ll give you a straight answer. No waffling, no creative nonanswers, no misdirection. In fact, if the honest truth is “I haven’t decided yet”? I’ll let you pick a new question.
But none of this will come through unless the project is fully funded.
So please, support it as far as you can, pass the link around, and wish me luck!
