It’s been a long week for us, trying to get caught up with the comics, trying to figure out what to share with our patrons, trying to figure out how to get more patrons…
And to top it all off, Chelsey’s sciatic nerve and bursitis is acting up again. She’s been couch-ridden for 4 days, and is none-too-pleased that she’s missing the cooler last days of summer. But, RM is up and ready to go this week! And we’re finally back on schedule with our updates. Behind on uploads, but back on schedule. So that’s a good thing.
We really do need more patrons to sign up though, and we may have to start restricting what we share on all the pages to encourage them to do so. Otherwise, we’ll have to abandon the comics entirely because we can’t afford to keep doing things for free. :< And we don't want to do that.
The weekly vlog update:

August, August, August. It has been crazy hot around here lately and we’ve been working tirelessly through the heat to get ahead on the comics. But the biggest, and coolest thing we’ve been doing lately is our Patreon!
If you sign up for a monthly subscription, you get all sorts of bonus content for both comics like art, video blogs, and whatever else we can think of to throw in there for you! Check out our promo vid for it:

Now, our comics have always been free, and we intend to keep it that way (unless of course, you want to buy them in print form) but if you want to keep us making comics on time and doing this for the long run, then we’re going to have to start turning this into a job. Unfortunately, we can’t do that without your help! So, we’ve come up with a bunch of ideas for juicy bonuses for subscribers each month.
“But Chelsey, I can’t afford to subscribe to you…”
Then… don’t? We’re not pushing anyone into it – this is a bonus if you can and do subscribe! Otherwise, the comics are still free… so… nothing really changes.
“But Chelsey, I don’t necessarily want to subscribe for that much.”
With Patreon, there’s a bunch of different tiers, so you can choose between an inexpensive tier, where you still get some perks, or the more generous tiers where you get a lot of perks! It’s all up to you!
“Well, where’s the link so I can check it out?”
Why, it’s right here, good chap! CLICK HERE!
Like I said, the more patreons we have, the better we can do our jobs – to finish the comic on time, to keep up with quality of the images and story, to travel to conventions to meet with all of you, to offer more comic titles, and to keep us from crying in a corner.
Lots of online comics do this, and now we’re another! I hope we can have fun with the subscribers in the days to come!
Also, we are still working on what tiers should offer what, but if you have any suggestions (within reason, of course) then do tell us! It’s difficult to think of many things that wouldn’t slow down our comic production, so we’re still wrestling with what’s fair at each tier.
