This is a teaser for the bonus content of Book 1, guest-starring Princess Ari!
Now for the big announcement; for the past 2 years, ToP has been funded from Chris’ and my own pockets, and while we love bringing you lovely people weekly quality updates (and we haven’t missed an update so far), it has been a costly endeavor what with maintainance and advertising.
We’d really love for you to crowdfund us on IndieGoGo to help alleviate some of the costs or maybe break even. It’s going to be a small goal, and even then I’m not sure we’ll make it, but every little bit will be a big help to keep ToP chugging along. We love our comic just as much as you guys.
The campaign will give you folks a chance to own a high quality digital copy of Book 1 which includes the bonus content that today’s update is teasing. Higher tier rewards will also offer more digital goodies, like custom sketches (or a painting!) from yours truly.
Unfortunately there are no plans for a print run as of yet, I would love to, but the international shipping rates from my country is so expensive you’ll be paying just as much or more than the book just to get it shipped, and I think that’s highway robbery.
By doing a digital run there will less oversight of the costs as I don’t have to juggle the budget over shipping and printing. The only factor here is sending out the swag in a timely manner, which I will do my best to accomplish.
We’re currently working out the finer details of ToP’s campaign so we should be ready to launch in a week or so. When that happens I hope you wonderful readers will help support ToP, Princess Ari is searching for her knight in shining armor!
