I'm writing this post to let you all know about a new initiative I'm going forward with on patreon--an early access mini comic, for ALL patrons' eyes only until it concludes, and released over time as the community grows.
What's the theme? I've had the story of how Lys and Simon met rattling around in my head and in some form of notes for about a year now, and I think it would be fun to put those ideas to paper, so to speak. It's a bit of a comedy, it opens up some character and world backstory, and also there are smooches.
What's it going to look like? My current intention is to leave it as a sketch comic, so that if needed I can reasonably release up to one page a week alongside Lies Within's weekly page deadline.
When will pages release? My starting goal is 130 patrons. After I reach 130 patrons, and for every 5 patrons after that, a page will be released for patrons only! (Example: 130 patrons get page 1, at 135 page 2 will be made, 140 page 3, and so on until it finishes)
Pages will come out one week after each new goal is met, allowing me time to make the pages and release them in a timely manner. If for some reason I gain a large amount of patrons in, say, a few days, I will continue to post a maximum of one page a week until I've caught up to the community goal.
Will the comic be public, or a patron exclusive? The mini comic will stay on patreon (for all tiers $1 and up) until it is finished, and then it will be released as a single pdf available to download on gumroad for free, and on tapastic. Your benefit will be seeing it months in advance of anyone else!
Let your friends and whoever else you know who likes reading Lies Within know! This is an extra you can make happen, but only by joining our community on Patreon!
