Hey guys, let me explain you a thing.
Basically I’m absolutely gutted because I won’t have book 2 ready for MCM. I’ve mentioned work problems in the past but I thought you deserved a little more understanding of why I’m all over the place, and why a significant amount of my time has gone bye bye.
I am very very lucky to have full time work, don’t think I’m moaning about my job, because I do like it, the problem is that my clients aren’t as wonderful. I work 9-5 as a supervisor in a finance company, and as of late, due to problem clients, things have gotten very rocky, which means I’m spending more time trying to fix things than usual, which has effected everything else. A fair few days I’ve gotten home too burned out to do much. Real life does take precedence, as it should. Hopefully we’ll keep our heads above water for the winter. Anything after that will boil down to how much time I can put into trying to sort things out.
Among other small balls to juggle such as long-needed computer repair, things have been hindered. This means I won’t be taking book 2 to MCM with me which quite frankly makes me want to chew through a plank of wood! But life goes on and i should have it available not long after. The good news is that due to my hard work on CR earlier in the year, Book 3 should be out earlier than I expected.
I really appreciate your patience, and I hope that I will be seeing some readers there! Fingers crossed xx
I’ll be bringing with me some traditional character sketches for CR that I will only make available at the conventions, and each one will be unique (including some MaddyxJack to get you through these long lonely chapters!).
Hi guys, sorry I’ve not been around.
Nothing else to it aside from a pile up of bad work, real life and having a massive, massive burn-out due to the first reason (which I am in the process of trying to shake off – promise. Not giving up, don’t worry!).
I will be trying to get book 2 ready over the next few weeks, so updates will be sporadic but not too far apart. At least I left you with something to chew on!
I have October MCM in london to get ready for, so yes, I have a lot on my plate, though I’m looking forward to it! Hopefully I will be seeing some of you there?
So yes, all in all, sorry for my absence. Thank you for your patience. It means a lot!
Earlier this week I was interviewed via Skype by Zach Valkyrie for his comic group, Comic Team Up.
Here’s the link to the interview, if you’re interested. It’s a little chat about who I am, how I work and why.
It’s well underway!
For anyone who gets confused or lost reading the comic, the Crankrats Wiki should be here to help!
It’s early days yet, but with the help of Crankrats’ readers and myself (when I get a chance) this should hopefully become a point of reference for anybody interested in the story.
I’ll be adding what I can, when I can, and as the story develops the articles will hopefully change and grow too. There will be some additions from myself that may or may not be in the comic, so it should prove interesting for anyone who wants to read a little more into the lore of the world that Crankrats takes place in. If there is anything that you would like to see expanded upon one this is up and running, please let me know!
This is the main page for the Wiki – currently very little on there, but that’s where Crankrats’ readers come in.
Jack’s basic wiki has now been added!
That’s all for now, massive hugs and love for anyone who wants to help with this project.
Hey guys, just a quickie to say no updates this weekend as I’m at Readcon this Saturday.
Things are a little hectic at the moment, so will update as soon as I can after!
