To my readers, Sunnyville fans and all of you out there – I have to apologize to all of you for neglecting my blog. I have been very busy with a variety of things regarding Kickstarter, writing, publishing and my comics. Let’s get started first with Kickstarter.
I announced some time ago that I’m doing another Kickstarter to fund the Sunnyville Super Special #2. I originally slated that for launch on June 13, but I am now delaying the Sunnyville Super Special #2 Kickstarter until JANUARY 2019! I was reluctant to do this but this is probably a smart move. Doing one so soon after I wrapped up another one could strain me too much. Plus this may very well interfere with fulfilling the rewards for the Sunnyville #17 Kickstarter. On top of that, I’m still hammering out the content of the second super special; I originally wanted to do a short story with Rusty and his cousin Dominic. I’m thinking of maybe making this an anthology of short jokes with one longer story. But that still needs to be decided. I’ll have more news on that later.
There will be a Kickstarter around September to fund Sunnyville #18. I want to have ample time to plan this one, promote it, devise a stronger strategy in funding this and, most of all, I want to get as much of Sunnyville #18 drawn as possible or even finished. Tomorrow, I’ll be discussing Sunnyville #18 more with you readers.
Right now, I need to get the rewards for Sunnyville #17’s Kickstarter finished. At the time of this post going live, I’m constructing the digital file for Sunnyville #17 that will be sent to the printers and to those backers who opted for a digital copy of the comic. In a few more days, the funds from the Kickstarter will clear and I can have the comic printed up.
It’s also important to review this Kickstarter and take it apart in a careful analysis. I need to see how it performed, what I did right and what I can do next time to do better. To be honest, I am pleased it got funded but I wished we hit at least one stretch goal.
On another note, I finished that novel I spent nine whole days writing. For now, that’s sitting inside my computer hard drive; I’d prefer to let that manuscript “cool” for awhile before I go back and start editing. But that’s another discussion.
