Between Book Three & Book Four

In order to give some much needed attention to long overdue responsibilities like recreating/updating this "mostly functional" website, finally getting the visual-play-by-post Tempts Fate 9 game up and running and building up as much of a buffer as I can, Goblins Book Four will begin here on Monday, November 9th. But fear not, on every Monday between now and November 9th, I'll be posting a bunch of my concept sketches of scenes from Book Four, some with their text included, so you can have an idea of what's coming. I won't show anything spoilery, just think of the sketches as teaser trailers.

The recreated Goblins site will look cooler and contain a bunch of new features like an RSS link, a cosplay photo section (so email me pics of you in your Goblins costumes!), D&D tools and more. I hope you like it.

So to sum up, here's the schedule...

Monday, October 26th ~ Book Four concept sketches
Monday, November 2nd ~ more Book Four concept sketches
Monday, Novemeber 9th ~ Goblins Book Four launches!

As always, thanks for reading.

Well... Crumbs & Pennies. :(

I've been working my butt of on this last update, but it's taking a very long time. Too much detail. Anyways, I'll have it live as soon as it's finished. For now, I'm crawling into bed.

As always, thanks for reading.

Final Sneak Peek Of Book Three

This next update is the last update of Book Three and the last update of the Brassmoon story arc. Under the vote button is a sneak peek of a panel from that update.

And to everyone who has been pre-ordering Book Two, I offer my loudest, most obnoxious thanks ever! I really appreciate the interest that you're showing in the Book. Since this is Keenspot's first experience with publishing Goblins material, they're looking at how much interest there is and using that as a gauge to see how quickly they can invest in things like Goblins plushies, animation, etc. Your pre-orders make these fun things happen faster. As a thank you, here's what I'll do...

When Book Four starts updating, I'm going to be giving this site a much needed overhaul. Things like an updated fan art page (thanks to the artists for their patience), RSS link, D&D tools etc will be added. I was going to save a map of the Goblins landscape as a bonus in my next PDF downloadable book, but if the Book Two pre-orders pass 600 (this includes orders of both the softcover & hardcover or the combo pack), I'll instead add it as a permanent part of the revamped site for free.

As always, thanks for reading.

Book Two & Twitter

Well, after a delay at the printers, Goblins Book Two pre-orders have finally begun. Hooray! To anyone who pre-orders a copy, Thank you SO much for your support! The more we impress Keenspot with pre-orders, the faster they'll start making other fun stuff like Goblins plushies!

Last Thursday, I did 24 hours of answering every, single Twitter message I received. The whole thing was very fun and due to Twitter's ability to create quick responses, didn't taken much time off my hands at all. So I've decided that every Thursday will be Respond-to-all-Twitters-Thursday. I may still respond on other days, but not to everything. I'm not ignoring you, I'm just not always going to be looking at my Twitter account.

So this Thursday, hit me with questions, comments or goofy stuff. You are 100% guaranteed a response. If you don't already know, this is my Twitter account.

Also, I'm hoping to find the ending to Book Three into next week's update.

As always, thanks for reading.

Update Status & Sneak Peek

I'm about to leave for VCON and since I won't be back until Monday, the update is going to be late this week.

Also, there is a new sneak peek of the upcoming update under the vote button (it's nice to be drawing forests again).

This story arc is alllllllmost at an end, at which point the comic will return to the "rotate through different story arcs" pattern that it used to follow. The end of this story arc will also mark the end of Book Three. Book Four will begin by continuing the adventures of Dies Horribly and his party.

As always, thanks for reading.
