Notes for August 19, 2017

This is a short update today, Sunnyville fans.  There hasn’t been much done due to being with family over this week.

Progress has been slow with Sunnyville Stories #15 but we are past the halfway point.  If all goes well, we should be able to get the story finished by September.  From there, we’ll be going straight into Sunnyville #16.

How to Advertise Free on Project Wonderful

Welcome back, readers and fans.  Last time, I told you about the wonderful website known as Project Wonderful (yes, I meant to say that twice).  You can advertise your site on there like your comic or webcomic if you have a little money to spend.  You can also make money on Project Wonderful by becoming a publisher and hosting their ads on your site.

But what if you’re on a shoestring budget and can’t afford to pay for advertising?  Well, you’re in luck, readers.  I can show you how to get free advertising on Project Wonderful.  That’s right, I said FREE!  So how does that work?

There are a few limitations on that as I’m about to discuss.  I also cannot claim original credit for this technique; it came to me from the Webcomic Police site.  I also have screenshots to demonstrate what to do.  So let’s get on, shall we?   Continue reading

Comics Progress Report and Project Wonderful

Hello, Sunnyville fans.  I apologize about not updating yesterday.  Work on Sunnyville #15 remains slow but at least we are halfway through the story so far.

There’s a photograph of proof that I am working – I’m pencilling the rough outlines of the characters (that’s our game show host being drawn there).   Continue reading

The Sunnyville Stories Blog Turns 7!

Today is August 1st.  Do you know what that means?

It was on this day on August 1, 2010 that I officially launched the Sunnyville Stories blog – a central base of operations for promoting myself and my comics creation Sunnyville Stories.

That means this blog is seven years old today!

I’ve been at this blog as well as this comics series for seven years.  I have had good times and bad times.  I’ve had to deal with good reviews, sales and praise but there’s also been problems.  But do I regret any of it?  No, I don’t.

I aim to see this comics series through to the end.  I vowed to do fifty whole stories (I call them “episodes”) with Rusty, Sam and friends in Sunnyville and I will finish every one of them.

So here’s to the seventh anniversary of Sunnyvillestories.com – may we see an eighth, ninth and (gasp!) tenth anniversary too.

To all of you readers, fans and well-wishers who have been with me from the beginning through now – thank you very much for your continued support.

Updates on Von Herling Kickstarter

I have a brief announcement to make.  You may have heard it on my Twitter earlier and the last two Kickstarter related posts have been updated accordingly.

The Von Herling Vampire Hunter Kickstarter originally slated for September of this year has been delayed.  It will be launched sometime next year.

My main priority is the Sunnyville Stories Volume 4 Kickstarter.  That will have a higher funding goal and I can’t afford to split up my efforts – it’s imperative I plan well and organize my followers to make sure that one succeeds.

While I am on the topic, the Sunnyville Volume 4 Kickstarter still remains on schedule for January 5, 2018.  Stay tuned here for more news.

Announcing Kickstarter Rewards

Last week, I announced two Kickstarters.  Now I have the rewards worked out.

First, we’ll review the Von Herling, Vampire Hunter Kickstarter.  Our funding goal for this one is US$600.  Anyway here are the rewards I have worked out:

Anyone pledging US$1 will get my thanks.

Anyone pledging US$5 gets one free PDF copy of Von Herling, Vampire Hunter.

Anyone pledging US$15 gets both a free PDF of Von Herling and one print copy mailed out anywhere in the world.

And now for a limited reward – the first 10 people pledging US$25 will get a free PDF copy, a SIGNED & NUMBERED print copy mailed out anywhere in the world to them and you’ll get an extra reward – you’ll get some digital goodies in the form of 2 Von Herling wallpaper files!  And that’s going to be images NOT available anywhere else!

And I have one and ONLY ONE special reward tier – that will be a US$100 pledge.  If any one person pledges US$100, you get a free PDF copy, a free autographed print copy (made out to yourself or whoever you want like your spouse, your wacky next door neighbor, etc) plus you will receive not one but TWO pieces of original Von Herling artwork.  But wait – there’s more!  You or your character will appear in the next Von Herling story I am planning!  You can be a supporting character, a background character or even the vampire opponent in the story that Von Herling will face!  But remember there’s only one of these rewards available.

If those rewards haven’t got you psyched up, then these next ones will – I have worked out the rewards for the planned Sunnyville Stories Volume 4 Kickstarter!   Continue reading

Announcing TWO Kickstarters!

Ladies and gentlemen, I have a big announcement to make.  I am planning to do not one but two Kickstarters in the coming months.

The first Kickstarter is a small-scale one in that it will be meant to raise funds in the hundreds.  It will be a Kickstarter for Von Herling, Vampire Hunter.

Now planned for sometime in spring or summer of 2018, this Kickstarter aims to raise about US$600 to fund a micro-run reprint of my graphic novel.  This reprint will be about 50 hard copies which will run about $283 with an estimated shipping to me of about $80.  Mailing supplies and mailing fees (one of the rewards WILL be hard copies of this micro-run reprint) are estimated to be at about $133.64.  All additional funds are meant to deal with any unforeseen costs as well as the processing fees charged by Kickstarter and their cut of said funds.  Stretch goals are planned too.  I will have further updates on rewards later.  Any information above is subject to change between now and the launch.   Continue reading
