Good things all around!

Heya!

Happy May to ya!

Hope you're getting some spring weather where you are! Here it's been cold, even as Minnesota goes. But there's warm weather on the horizon and good news to share!


First, I'm very pleased to report that Mind Astray 2021 is %75 fulfilled and well ahead of schedule. All digital and hard copies should have found their way to their new homes by now, as well as about half of the hardcopies that have commissions. I had anticipate having all the hardcopies out by the end of may and all the commission done by the end of June, so that puts us almost two months ahead of schedule!

Huzzah!

If you ordered a digital copy or a hardcopy without a commission and you haven't received it yet, please reach out to me so I can make it right ASAP.


The other big thing I wanted to share is that I have just launched my latest online comic project, The Canon of Vangel!

CLICK HERE TO READ IT!

Set 10 years after a magical reawakening, a wandering paladin must face her demons (internal and extrenal) if she's going to make a last ditch effort to stop the apocalypse in progress. If you're into stuff like Dresden Files, Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Supernatural, then you are going to love The Canon of Vangel!

AAANNNDDD...

To celebrate the launch of my latest project I'm holding my first ever May Member Drive on Patreon!

CLICK HERE TO CHECK IT OUT

During the entire month of May, I will be dolling out all kinds of exclusive bonuses just for the folks who sign up this month. Digital comic bundles, original art raffles, personalized shoutouts, and more! And that's on top of all the exclusive bonus content you get just for being a Patreon member!

You get cool stuff, and you make The Canon of Vangel happen.

Win-fracking-win!


I'll bop back to let you know when Mind Astray has wrapped completely. I think I can  get it all done before June even starts! So much cool stuff goin on! I am so very excited to share it with you! This is going to be fun!


More soon!

Till then, be good!

But not too good 😉
