Updating on stuffage ^_^

Soooooo....what's been going on in Emma-land? LOTS! I swear I'm getting worse at updating, sorry! '^_^I'm going to break this down into sections I think, far easier:

1. Vampire Academy: As you all know, book one is in the bag from my end. And I've now seen the colours too  - so amazing!! I cannot wait for you to see it. The colourists have done a lovely job :) I now excitedly await the script for Frostbite! Release for book 1 is still looking to be August this year.

2. Avalon Chronicles: Book 1 is going to be done in the next week from my end, and the script for book 2 is imminent. I can't tell you how awesome Nunzio and Christina are, so I can't wait to read what they've done with our crazy brainstorming sessions! Release of the first book is looking to be a little later than planned due to marketing; we want to make sure the readers don't have to wait too long for the next book after #1 is out...so we're looking at March 2012. ^_^

3. Thrill Electric: I've been seeing some of windflower studio's work and, boy, this project is going to look beautiful, you guys!

4. The PHOENIX!!! Some of you will recall the amazing DFC weekly comic that was sadly cut short when the recession hit the UK. Well, a couple of days ago I went along to a DFC alumni party where it was announced to much celebration that next year will see the launch of the Phoenix comic. It's got a plan, it's got funding, and it's going to be amazing. Run by the DFC's Ben Sharpe and Will Fickling; this is going to be very exciting. No creators are contracted yet as it's still very early days, but you can bet you'll see some DFC favourites in there. I hope I get a chance to do something ^_^

5. Dragon Heir: Reborn in review: I've been overjoyed at the responses to Dragon Heir so far. And, since the first Diamond shipment hit shops, I'm getting reports of sightings all over the place, not to mention a couple of wonderful reviews from the lovely Forbidden Planet International and Nottingham's fantastic Page45 shop! Thanks, you guys! *hugs* If you've read the book, do let me know your thoughts!! x

6. Events: Upcoming events I'll be attending include - Bristol Comic Expo, London MCM Expo and the all-new and exciting Comic Launchpad event (a great looking new event with a really creative focus)

Dragon Heir: Reborn available to order through Diamond

My personal project, Dragon Heir (published by Sweatdrop studios) features in January's edition of Previews magazine! @mondocomico on twitter informs me that it's on page 310. (Previews product code for DH:R is "JAN111316") This is very exciting news as it means that the book can now be ordered from all good book shops, comic shops and such. So, if you've been keen to get hold of a copy but weren't sure about ordering online, this is your time!

Sweatdrop members are of course independent creators. What that means is that it's just little old me and my book. Being picked up by Diamond as an independent creator is a huge honour, but getting stock to retailers is the harder step. Spreading the word and ordering copies is something that everyone can help with. Help out an indie creator and demand that your local bookshops order in copies of Dragon Heir, because reading epic stories filled with pretty people, swords and angst is everyone's right! ^_^

I love yoooo!

Dragon Heir: Reborn has arrived in print!

Well, I'm an excited creator today, despite the horrid headcold that's causing my nose to immitate a leaky tap. I've not even had a chance yet to write up the amazing experiences I had at Electric Picnic in Ireland and, more recently, Paris Manga in France - where I made many new friends and really had a wonderful time. But this particular bit of blogging just cannot wait, so I hauled myself out of my sick bed to let you know.
Dragon Heir: Reborn has arrived! While working for publishers is fantastic, there's always something very special about producing your own, independent book...and this one has a lot of meaning for me. ^_^ You'll note especially the GOLD SPINE TEXT!!! OMG GOLD! *jumps around*.

As you can see, I'm pretty excited! The book literally just arrived, but shall very soon find its way onto the Sweatdrop online store and amazon, for easy purchase. I can also offer out direct copies if people don't mind using paypal and waiting on me to get my arse in gear and post stuff ^_~

The official launch will be at the MCM Expo in October, where we'll have copies on sale at Sweatrop. I want to take a chance again to thank all of you who have read the online version and the old issues, you guys are amazing and motivated me to make this beast. Thank you. *hug* I sincerely hope you'll enjoy seeing the compiled story so far in this volume as much as I did!
More news when I have it ^_^
Now, back to bed and Vampire Academy pencilling :)

Dragon Heir - Chapter 40

Greetings! I've been all over the shop recently for workshops, and have met some fab students from Sunderland down to Milton Keynes. A big hello to them all!

So, where were we in Dragon Heir? Ah yes, our team are minus their Protective Spirit, and therefore their defenses (with Protus still captive in an inknown location), the Empathic Spirit is minus his abilities and stuck to a tree, the Fighting Spirit is trying hard not to let his Dragon Spirit take over, despite having just learned that Verance is possibly stronger than anyone he's ever fought before, and our Wise Spirit, mage and Spirit Binder? Well, let's head to them first, shall we?...

Dragon Heir - chapter #39

Late again! Eeep. I've had a lovely couple of days showing the wonderful Amy Hadley (Fool's Gold, Madame Xanadu) around Cambridge...so much so that I'm late with this update! I'm so sorry *bow*

But it's here now! Complete with a very cut down first page - which is part of a larger double-page spread that you guys will get to experience for real in the printed version. This was the best way I had of showing it for the web version, but hopefully you get the idea!
