This seems like a pretty good time to pause and ask you guys a question! Can you folks check out the blog entry on the home page and let us know what you think about next week’s update? We could go one of two ways at the moment, so we’d like to know what you think!
In light of the printers warning us of a delay in the delivery of the books due to a large demand on their resources, Suzana and I have been wondering – would it help to stave off some of the wait if we posted the prologue that we wrote and included in the book?
We hadn’t intended to post it until after Chapter 5, but this is actually a fairly good place in Chapter 5 to take a break for it, so we figured we’d offer. (This isn’t the NSFW digital comic, by the way. That’s coming soon, at the same time as the books!)
The prologue takes place before the events of Chapter 1, and shows a little bit of how Liam and Milo’s friendship felt before the comic really started. It explains some things we’ve only hinted at, delves into some things we haven’t had the chance to show, and sets up some things that happen at the end of Ch5 (no spoilers, no worries!)
Also, since we have 10 pages just sitting around, it would mean that we could start twice a week updates immediately instead of waiting until the Kickstarter stuff is sent out. We wouldn’t have to downgrade to once a week when we came back to Chapter 5, either, as it would give us a chance to build a little backlog! :)
However, we know it might be frustrating to put Ch5 on hold – we’re pretty excited for it right now, ourselves. That’s why we’d like to hear what you guys think and which you’d prefer. If people lean toward continuing Ch5, we’ll go ahead and post the prologue at the end of this chapter and continue on the once-a-week schedule for just a bit longer. If not, we’ll show you the prologue now and jump start the two updates.
Let us know what you think! We’re pretty flexible either way and just want to ease some of the anxiety around wait times. ♥
