Wow, what a year it's been. We're already in March? How is that even possible? Time needs to slow down and chill out already.
On the bright side, this means we're so much closer to the release of Volume Three. After a few rounds of painstaking cuts, the book is now at "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" length (down from "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" length). I'm extremely happy with the current version of the book. Without giving away too much, I will say this: Some of the book 3 theories out there will be mercilessly destroyed. Some people will be happy, others might be devastated. Some unexpected characters will return. Some characters will say their final goodbyes. And we'll all finally know the answers to certain questions you didn't even know you had... Is that vague enough? I hope so.
In other news, I learned a couple days ago that the company I've been using for merch (Inktale) is going out of business soon. As much as this saddens me, it also gave me the motivational push necessary to finally open my own merch shop here on the blog. We've even commissioned a new design thanks to the immensely talented Yessica Rdz:
(I may have made a mistake in giving Jerry permission to write all of the product descriptions on the shop page. Ah well.)
As of right now, we are only able to ship to locations within the United States, although we're working to expand that soon.
Besides the shop and book three, I've been spending some time working on that super secret Gas Station project, and it is looking incredible. I'm not ready to say what it is yet, but here's a hint: While some of my stories have been described in the past as violent or gory, this new project will be a different kind of graphic...
That's all for now.
Stay tuned for more announcements.
