Good day to you, readers! It’s time once again for an update.
As previously mentioned in the last update the Jinimaru Folklore stories are well underway, and all is progressing smoothly towards the deadline for the 1st of July. The guide is also almost ready, so by the end of July the first whole series will be available for physical printing. EPUB versions will come out sometime at the end of the year.
Next on the agenda is the website. I have made some artwork for it, and have begun tidying up the pages as well as started adding new ones like a tutorials page (which are under construction).
Okay, now onto the big thing; Comic-Con.
I have been working on the books as well as other arts and crafts for many years now, only ever selling one or two items at a time because I didn’t feel ready to put it out there, but that is changing. This October, I will be attending Comic-Con as not just a regular con-goer, but also as a seller in Artists Alley. As of this moment I have a brief list of what will be available, what day I hope to attend as a seller, and very rough pricing.
|Jinimaru Folklore (Each)||Jinimaru Guide||Prints (286 x 439 mm)||Jinimaru Cosplay Tails (Each)||Convention Commission|
|Price at the Convention||£3.99||£6.99||£9.99||£5 to £10||£5 to £10|
|Price Elsewhere||£4.50||£8.99||£12.99||N/A (Con exclusive)||Commission prices vary|
I intend on having a stall on the Friday or Saturday, as my family and I have a long drive back home on Sunday evening and we want to beat the traffic. I will be in cosplay throughout the entire convention as a character from one of the books, but right now I have nothing to even tease which it will be. It is a Jinimaru character though.
I look forward to the release of the series, and attending Comic-Con at the end of the year! To those already attending the May London Comic-Con, I hope to see you in October!
