Prints available

Published March 25, 2014 by swankivy

Just so y’all know, you can actually buy prints of any of these comics if you want them, fairly cheap through DeviantART.

My shop

Most of them are available in little 5 x 5 prints and a few are 4 x 5, 4 x 6, 8 x 10, or 8 x 12.

First off, I’m happy to say isn’t just a hypothetical situation I wrote up for this comic.  (In case you’re curious, I ended up signing with the agent who asked me to cut 30,000 words out of my book–the situation from this previous comic.)  Getting representation feels like a giant step forward–and I’m hoping it is!–but once you’re out of the query trenches, it’s not like you’re home free. . . .

So now that I no longer have to query agents to ask if they want to represent my novel, my agent gets to start querying publishers to see if they want to take a look at my book.  And the cycle begins again.  I’m glad to say my agent seems confident that publishers are going to fight over me, but I’m far too jaded to expect it to be easy. . . .

But who knows.  Maybe soon I’ll be doing comics about bashing my head in over line edits from the publishers and stressing over cover concepts and sequels and movie deals, huh?

We’re swinging for a three-book deal for my fantasy trilogy starting I guess this week, so wish me luck!

So You Write: A webcomic about being a writer

Published June 10, 2012 by swankivy

This is my webcomic about being a writer.  It’s very silly, with autobiographical details about my life as a writer and what sorts of things we creative types deal with while interacting with the outside world.

There is no update schedule planned; I’ll add a new one whenever I feel like it.  It’d be too demanding for me to try to keep this one regular too since I already have another webcomic that has been updated every Friday since May 20, 2005.

Please send me a message if you’d like to leave private feedback or ask questions about any of my projects.
