Well, we now have FIVE DAYS REMAINING until the launch of the Sunnyville Stories spin-off comic, Dominic & Claire Circus.
I made a special link to direct people to the pre-launch page so sign up there to be notified when we launch.
Anyway, for some coverage, I plan to get an article over on the Root Beer Party blog. Another source of publicity during the planned campaign will the blog for Dazzleprinting, the service that printed the second Dominic & Claire title, Fun-Size. I am reaching out to a few more sources, including podcasts for more coverage.
Every tool at my disposal will be used to promote the blog, both free and paid. I won’t be active much here on the blog as besides working on the comic itself, there’s other things to do. But that has to wait for now…
Get ready for Dominic & Claire Circus on Wednesday January 29, 2020!

Would you like to have a special inside look at my next comic, Dominic & Claire Circus? (As a reminder, a Kickstarter for this launches on January 29, 2020.)
I will share material on my mailing list on Friday December 27, 2019 about the comic such as what to expect, a few new characters and even a handful of script excerpts (the script was finished earlier today). This material will NOT be anywhere else – not here on the blog, not Twitter, not Facebook, etc.
If you want to see this exclusive inside look (you know you want to), then sign up below for my mailing list!
I have a few announcements today. First, there will be no updates next week as I am taking off for Christmas. After Christmas and into the new year, I will kick things into high gear as I have a Kickstarter to do.
The Kickstarter I plan is for another Dominic & Claire work (a spin-off from Sunnyville) called Dominic & Claire Circus. The Kickstarter is set to launch on January 29. From here on, I’m going to be hammering out the planned rewards and constructing the promotional plans to get the word out.
As this blog post goes live, I’m still hammering out the script for the comic. This one will run 24 pages and will have at least two segments originally planned for Dominic & Claire Fun-Size. It is also my intent to introduce more characters. Some of the new characters we’ll meet are Claire’s mother, Dominic’s little sister, Claire’s best friend and a few friends for Dominic.
On Friday, December 27, my mailing list will kick into “high power” mode with weekly updates; make sure you join my list if you didn’t already. There’ll be another post about that list later with something special.
Today, I would like to announce my next Kickstarter project. It is titled “Dominic & Claire Circus”.
Like Dominic & Claire Fun-Size, this will be a digest size comic book. The Kickstarter will launch on Wednesday, January 29, 2020 and will run for about 30 days. The goal this time will be US$1000.
There is a reason for this higher goal this time. If I can raise $800 on my previous one, I can raise a little extra for the next one. While the planned print run is 500 copies, I may do a slight overrun leading to a final printing of anywhere from 520 to 575 copies.
On top of that, the page count will be higher as there will be 24 interior pages and the covers will use a higher quality paper this time. I may be getting a barcode too as I look for micro-distribution this time in a comics shop; that will serve as a stepping stone to get my comics into comic book shops in the future through a distributor.
I will have updates in the future here as I need to work out details, especially for planned rewards. Check back here later for more updates.
Be sure to subscribe to my mailing list if you didn’t yet. And get ready for Dominic & Claire Circus in 2020!
