Webtoons! (ie. My New Webcomic)

Okay!

I didn’t send out a newsletter chapter this last week because I have been working on a huge project. Starting June 15th, I’ll be uploading comic “episodes” on a site called Webtoon. Afterward, new episodes will post online every other Friday. The story I have chosen for this project, titled Captive, fits neatly into both Romance and Fantasy, but it will primarily be a Romance. I love romances, so I reasoned that that should be what I write (and draw).

These webtoons are different from what I am used to doing. They are longer and have an interesting, episodic layout – with panels set at wider intervals, and a vertical-scrolling layout. It’s not unlike watching a movie with the way it ends up playing out. I have found that I enjoy this format immensely, so I am going to play with it. Here’s to hoping I manage to nail the execution and make some noise with my epic romance! It’s a story I’ve had in the back of my mind since I was twelve years old. I already have a map and everything.

The prize money sits between $5,000 and $80,000. While I’m not going to expect to win the grand prize, I’m going to give the competition everything I have and truly work for both the much-needed exposure and the prize money. After all, I can’t win if I don’t try, right?

As such, I have a second announcement. I won’t be sending out newsletter chapters or posting any other artwork until after the first episode posts on June 15th. The reason for this is that I need to figure out a routine and plan, and get as many episodes done before the 15th as physically possible. I’ll be treating it like a second job, since that is what it is to me. A second job which I love and want to make money doing.

I will have other projects going, of course, and my second book is still coming! But I just wanted to be up front about my time constraints. I wish the competition had been announced later in the year. I’d be much more prepared!

As always, thank you for reading! I’ll make another announcement when the comic goes live on Webtoon.
