And now, a classic Bethany moment.
Hey darlings! I know the 2016 release schedule for Sorcerer’s Apprentice has been all over the place, but I’m back. There are a load of new pages qued up and I’m still marching towards Sorcerer’s Apprentice v.3. Chapter 15 is effectively done on my end, and I’m revising chapter 16 from its original version because while it was a sound chapter, it was a little rough. Chapter 16 will mark the end of the reboot and return to all new storylines. New characters will be introduced, new powers will be mastered, and Allister’s past will finally come to light! I’m getting excited for it, you guys, I hope you are as well!
Hey guys. Some of you might be wondering why the site hasn’t updated. There hasn’t been any news since December and no new pages since February. The past few months have been very hard for me, physically and emotionally. It’s been very hard for me to work, and I’ve been thinking very seriously about quitting. After much thinking, I have decided not to, but I still need a little bit more time before I can update again. It’s very hard to motivate yourself to work, especially when working on something creative, when it feels like no one really cares. Sales of books are slow, and comments from you guys are few and far between. When I get no feedback, I get very badly discouraged, and very depressed.
I’m not ready to give up just yet, but I need to take a break until I get my motivation back. If you want to help, remember that copies of Volume 1 and 2 can be purchased through Indy Planet, and I do have a Patreon page. Financial support is necessary in order to keep going, both for living expenses and for supplies.
Hey kids! Been a while since I had anything new to report, but this is kind of an important one. I didn’t want to announce it prematurely because I hate delaying things and pushing stuff back, but I’m fairly confident I can finally announce a release date for Sorcerer’s Apprentice v.3.
The book will be available for the general public May 3rd 2016
I am trying to get the book ready in time for Anime Southwest which will be at the end of April. Attendees of the con will have first chance to get the finished book, as well as have it autographed (which has and always will be free. I think charging for autographs is really skeevy.) So I will probably be using the majority of my energy to work on getting the book done. So if you don’t see or hear from me much beyond update announcements, that’s why. We’re getting past the half-way point of Chapter 15, and after Chapter 16 Sorcerer’s Apprentice will return to all-new content. So for you older fans who have been waiting for what seems to be FOREVER to find out what happens next, I assure you, the wait won’t be much longer now. But you guys can help it along by contributing to my Patreon Page. If I start making $500 a month through the site, it will mean Sorcerer’s Apprentice will return to its old 3 page a week schedule instead of the 2 you guys get now.
Hey kiddos. After lots of requests from people at cons over the years, I have bowed to public opinion and opened an Etsy shop. Etsy is the easiest and most convenient way to buy anything in the ‘handmade’ department. So if you’re interested in buying prints and Sorcerer’s Apprentice merch, with more on the way, go to: http://www.etsy.com/shop/BwillettComics
Hey fans! Sorry that updates have been a little screwy. I’ve been feeling really badly this week so pretty much everything is a little off across the site. Another reason why things were delayed is because I’m going to be tinkering the site soon so certain links are easier to find. Because I sell my books through Indy Planet things can be a little hard to find. I’ll be updating the website so that instead of having to navigate their site, you can instantly get linked to the books on mine. As well as links to my Patreon and upcoming Etsy shop. I’ll also be updating the character pages and that planning is what I’ve been working on this week.
For those of you who have been buying the books in spite of Indy Planet’s shortcomings, I am truly grateful. I hope you enjoy the quality of the printed pages. Knowing that so many have been bought this year really motivates me to get v.3 up and running, especially before Anime Southwest coming in 2016.
Lastly a note about comments. Because Sorcerer’s Apprentice is an all-ages comic, I have a fairly strict policy about comment content. So if you see your comment has been deleted it was less because I didn’t like it, and more it was something I wouldn’t want kids to stumble across. So please, try to keep your comments as kid friendly as possible. Think a PG movie at most.
