Non-Comic Blog Posts
Greetings, all! So sorry to leave you hanging, but the Real World has brought about some big changes in our house and we’ve been out of any kind of normal routine for about a year. (You can read about it on my personal blog, DOODLEBOT.NET.) Thank you to those of you who have been checking in here and/or following me on twitter and on facebook . You probably already know all this stuff!
But pertinent to the comic, YES I am going to finish this storyline! (Hopefully before THIS Halloween.)
YES, the comic is going to continue. I enjoy it too much to quit. Unfortunately, I don’t know when I can go back to regular updates. I want to revamp the whole comic and website at this point, and bring back my tech/gadget/life-hack blog WitchyTech too.
So watch this space, follow me on Twitter (or just the comic site’s RSS feed on twitter), or on facebook to get the heads-up as soon as things get to my new normal.
You all know how I hate mirrors. And how much MORE I hate the rear view! But I am delighted that 2011 is behind us. Every bit of good that happened has been nearly run over by the bad that followed. I have lived long enough to know that after a couple of those kinds of years, there will be good years to follow. It’s just keeping yourself together so you can be ready to enjoy the good when it comes. *staples self together*
The upshot for the comic is that the real world will still take priority and updates will continue to be very sporadic. However, my resolution is to make more time for the comic. I find I am more energized when I am being creative, and I lost my zest in 2011, the whole time I wasn’t doing the comic or at least drawing *something* every day.
It is so rewarding to make comics for you. I enjoy writing and drawing, but my enjoyment grows when I can share the comics with you. Talking with you in the comments and on facebook and twitter adds to the whole experience. That’s why when I’m counting my blessings this year, I include those of you who read and enjoy Life’s a Witch.
All the profits from this book go to food banks in the US and Canada. In it, you will find recipes and comics from some of your favorite webcomic creators! INCLUDING a wonderful breakfast recipe and a little Life’s a Witch comic from ME.
In order to sell the last few, they’re letting the creators offer a 7.5% discount!
You have to use the discount code: Samantha to get the sale price. (This code is case sensitive.)
This is such a great little cookbook. It would make a wonderful gift for anyone and you know the holidays are coming up.
I understand that there aren’t that many of these books left. Let’s see if we can clear the warehouse before the holidays to give the food banks a boost and cross some things off our Christmas lists!
Remember: for the 7.5% discount, use the coupon code Samantha.
STRIP this past Saturday was a blast! I had SO MUCH fun. Husband Michael was there to help me with the table while I flitted around the floor visiting old and new friends. Touching base with the comics community is so wonderful.
I got to see the best uber fans EVAR: Adminderella and Mr. Posslq! (Links to their own write-ups on the con.) They buttered me up by bringing liquid refreshments. *wink wink* Unfortunately, I didn’t get their pics to show you, but I did get these to share! Check them out, posted in no order of particularness:
Look what I found in my mailbox this morning! Dutch (a/k/a Mr. V), creator of the Spiderforest comic “School Spirit” sent me this wonderful pic of Zelda and Wendy (who happens to be my favorite character from School Spirit, btw.
THANK YOU so much, Dutch!
And if any of you STILL haven’t checked out School Spirit after my many suggestions to do so, now would be a great time to get with it! (Check out the “Strine” link at the top of the page. That’s where I go for Australian-English translations or just for a chuckle.)
But what’s the hold-up on Life’s a Witch you ask? We’re sending our oldest off to college and then we’re moving to Dallas (we promise to give oldest our forwarding address). The husband is already in Dallas working at his new company and I’m down here getting things in order for college admission and the house ready to go on the market. Unfortunately, the comic MUST take a back seat to all that.
HOWEVER, I will still be at STRIPCON in Dallas in AUGUST! Even though I’ll have nothing new to show, I will be meeting and greeting and drawing and having fun. Come join me and a whole bunch of fun folks from the webcomic community. Admission is only $5, so you’re anywhere near Dallas in August, you’ve no excuse not to come over and say hello!
