In case it wasn’t clear, yes,the latest comic pageshows Catharine as her younger self. I had actually drawn the design for Kid!Catharine a few years ago for a different Sister Claire related project which is now on the backburner.
There’s a reason why Catharine is imagining herself as a child in her own mind right now, and it will be revealed eventually! It’s definitely interesting seeing Claire be the oldest one for once…
I am typing this from the train back home after a very fun, productive, and exhausting trip to PA and NYC to sicn, package, and distribute my Kickstarter rewards! I couldn't have done with without tons of help from Megan Lavey-Heaton (author of Namesake) and her awesome husband Mike, who have been an incredible help by helping pack and ship everything. Megan will begin sending out the packages immediately, and she is emailing tracking numbers as she goes, so keep an eye out for yours!
I can't express how much relief I feel to have the majority of this work behind us. It's been nearly a year since we began this Kickstarter, and we learned a lot from it. I am confident the next Kickstarter will be much, much faster now that we have ironed everything out. Thank you so much for your support and patience, it shall soon be rewarded. <3
For those who wanted to back the Kickstarter and/or get a book but missed the chance, Megan will be putting some of the extra books up on her online store. I will make an announcement as soon as she does! But be warned that the leftover stock is extremely limited, so it is first come first serve. I will make a re-print of Book 1 a stretch goal for the Vol. 2 kickstarter, so there will still be chances after this, just not as soon. I am also taking some books to sell at future conventions, so look for my announcements on those soon!
Now that I have one less thing to stress over, I am going to focus on increasing my page output to 2 pages a week. Before I do so, I need to build up a buffer in case of travel or sickness, but I have alread scripted most of the next book out and I am very excited to get to work drawing it! =)
