Where else can I view your work?
You can find my artwork on websites such as Redbubble, Amazon, and DeviantArt for sale, or just to have a casual browse through a mixture of fan-art and original bits and pieces I decide to share outside of my projects! I also upload artwork on the very rare occasion to Furaffinity, though this website tends to remain exclusively for my more “mature” art that can be not safe for work. Fan-fiction is available on AO3 but they are all very old and are no longer being updated.
Other than these listed websites, and StreamLabs, my artwork should not be found anywhere else.
Why do some books have multiple cover options?
I provide all paperback books in one style on Amazon as exclusives. If the e-book is also an Amazon exclusive, they will share the same cover as their paperback editions. These editions are the cheapest options available, and I didn’t want my books to all have the same cover as this could confuse someone regarding pricing.
Hardbacks are sold via other retailers and are more expensive; these books are often labelled as Deluxe Editions, and have a new cover made just for hardbacks, including those with dust jackets. This way someone knows the edition they are looking at is a hardback, even if the site doesn’t say it is.
Books such as the Edris Compendium have their hardback edition labelled as “Cosplay Edition”, as it has been designed to resemble how the book looks in the fantasy world it’s based on.
How is ZuW helping the planet?
Writing and drawing about nature is one of my passions, so it makes sense that I would do my best to preserve it, so every single one of my distributors is a “print on demand” service: Redbubble, LuLu, Deviantart and yes, even Amazon.
What is “print on demand”? It’s quite simple really: rather than mass-producing books or prints and leaving them sitting in a storage facility to be purchased, which uses up resources and space, the items are made to order meaning no space or materials get wasted. My distributors also use printers that are as close as possible to your address so that the carbon footprint is lower for getting your item shipped to you!
I want to make an adaptation based on one of your books. Is this allowed?
It depends on what you plan on doing with my beloved worlds! I’d love to learn more about your project and to help you out where I can. Please send me an e-mail at email@example.com to discuss more about it with me.
Do you provide Art/Writing classes?
At this moment in time I do not, simply because I have too much work to do right now! Please check back here in the future when I have less on my plate to do.
Do you do mature (18+) commission work?
I can, but it depends on what is being asked for if I will draw it or not. I may struggle to draw certain things and don’t want to make any promises when it comes to mature work, so please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I also ask all my clients if I can post the image onto one of my two platforms (Deviantart or Furaffinity) for future clients to see samples, so if you don’t want anyone else to see what I have drawn for you then you’ll need to tell me not to.
(Insert sales pitch here)
I didn’t ask for your services, I do not need your services, so do not contact me offering them. If I receive any soliciting e-mails relating to me paying for premium services such as editing, paid reviews, marketing schemes, social media promotions, increased website traffic, or similar I will immediately blacklist your business. What does this mean? Well, when it comes time that I may actually need one of these services I will know not to bother with yours, because you tried to sell to me when I made it clear that I was never interested. Continued sales badgering will not only net you the blacklisting, but I’ll also be sure to tell my network of fellow creators to avoid you under the grounds that you’re a harassing business.
By reading this statement you understand that I am not in the market for sales pitches of any kind, and if you contact me you acknowledge that I will ignore your e-mail and blacklist your business.
