The charm is real! (But the cake is a lie.)

It’s been a nifty day for two of the Apocalypse projects: good news all around. News that made me squeal in joy.

The first was an email from one of the backers of Pestilence’s book, The Page of Cups. It appears that their book finally arrived and their “girls” love it. They sent pictures: probably the best pictures of the book ever. EVER! With the girls. I thought you’d like to take a look:

And you can see in this next image, his girls are even dancing around the circle ho-down style:

What wonderful news!

Also, in an attempt to remain positive about 10 Confessions’ predicament with the Kickstarter campaign, I put out a private email to what backers there were offering them a free PDF of chapter 1 if the campaign failed. After all, I write this thing so it will be read. I certainly don’t mind giving away a free copy or two.

I also made 10 little chapter 1 charms all by myself – because if each chapter is going to have an associated charm I gotta start somewhere. Even if the campaign fails. For consistency. Here’s a movie about them.

New Chibi Charm

The campaign to raise funds for the next chapter of 10 Confessions & a Kiss on Kickstarter has 20 days to go. No new backers. The campaign on Indiegogo has… I think 25 to go. No backers at all.

Just in case people show interest in supporting this project at the last minute, I sat down today to finish designing one of the support incentives: the acrylic charm. Apocalypse readers know I love these charms and would use any excuse to have one made. =^-^= In this case, there is only one charm per chapter and they all will be limited.

If you’re curious about this first one – and I know you are, here is the sketch:

I was originally going to have her with a football but it occurred to me it was more adorable to have her hanging by her bracelet off of wherever you happen to put her.

I have to return to paying work for now, but when I get another chance I’ll be finishing this up and testing it by making some charms here. If it works out then we have our final charm design.

It has the beginnings of a character list and links to the two campaign websites.
