Good news: Leif & Thorn is accepting guest strips again!
I didn’t get enough to fill a week in March, but I did get a few…and those will definitely be posted at the end of October. It’ll be a nice breather after the ends of the Volume I Kickstarterand the six-month (!!) Leachtric storyline.
I’d love to stretch out that break by adding a few more strips to the ones I’ve been saving. So if you have a great Leif & Thorn bonus idea, now’s the time!
Submissions will be open until September 30.
You can use any AU, explore any era, include any headcanons.
When you submit the strip, include whatever name you want to be credited by. And, if you like, a link to your gallery/blog/fanfiction account/webcomic/Etsy store.
Format: PNG, GIF, or JPG Size: up to 825×825 pixels Rating: up to PG-13 (basically, match the tone of the strip) Characters: whoever you want!
Which is why I’m raising the funds to do a print run on Kickstarter. Back this project, and you can get your very own copy of Leif & Thorn Volume 1, plus all kinds of other cool rewards. You can get wallpapers. You can get postcards. You can get custom art. You can get yourself drawn into the strip!
(Not in this book. In a future book.)
I kept the budget modest, so if we get funded, I get to print a short run of books. And if we get OVER-funded, I get to print a LONG run of books.
In the process of planning the Leif & Thorn Volume 1 Kickstarter, I’m starting an email list for announcements and updates. Because as much as it helps to be on Twitter and Tumblr and Facebook and so on…the first thing most people check in the morning is their email.
Obviously things will get posted on the website too — but maybe you don’t check the site every day. Or maybe you want the latest Leif & Thorn (and But I’m A Cat Person) news delivered straight to your inbox with no delay.
Well, this is for you!
I don’t actually like cold-sending emails, so I can promise you won’t get spammed with random trivia. Just the big updates, like book releases and Kickstarter kickoffs.
Second, a question for Leif & Thorn fans, showcasing DemocracyPoll‘s “if the answer isn’t there already, you can add it yourself” feature:
How do you follow Leif & Thorn?
This particular poll widget allows the website admin to mess with almost anything through the back end. So if any user abuses this to add a troll answer, it can be deleted.
(The admin also has the power to rewrite answers or change point totals completely. For me, the actual reader data here is too valuable to mess with…but if I ever try to prove Leif & Thorn has high traffic by showing you a poll that got 30,000 votes overnight, you’ll know I’ve gone to the dark side.)
