My name is Jeanne Thornton & I write fiction and draw comics. My enduring interest is long-form narrative, which generally takes the form of novels or comics in the classic "subscribe to this newspaper for twenty years and follow the dealings of these characters as they evolve, or don't, over generations" model.

Things I've actually done:
The Black Emerald (2014 & 2017, Instar Books)
The Dream of Doctor Bantam (2012, OR Books, Lambda Award finalist)
Bad Mother (webcomic, not ongoing anymore)

The deal: every month, I will take everything I've been working on that counts as personal work that can be shared in zine format, and I will give you access to it in zine format! This will include:

  • All comics I post
  • All weird sketchbook drawings I do
  • Select draft excerpts from whatever writing I'm doing (beyond what I already post to my tumblr.) This is usually a chapter of whatever novel I'm working on at the time (currently, as of February 2018, this is my third one, Crystal Heaven LLC.)
  • Any articles/reviews/stuff I have written that isn't fiction yet that I don't feel is a waste of your time
So far there are 35 issues as of February 2018. I believe that pledging gets you access to the back issue stuff as well. Therefore: join me in this! It can be our secret club together.

I'll ship ya a copy of the digest every month plus a fun cartoon, probably drawn on an index card

Goals
$143 of $150 per creation
NOTE: this goal was for screenprint covers, but my ability to do this at the $150 level was originally planned out in 2014, when I lived in New Orleans and had access to Inexpensive Screenprinting. :( I will figure out an alternative here--these goals really, really need restructuring.
