A Brief Hiatus Hi Everyone,

Yay- that’s the end of Book One!

Just thought I’d write a longish post talking about some future plans I’ve got for Tangled River.

First of all, thanks to everyone who has commented and/or subscribed. I love reading all the discussions about what’s going on in the comic, though I’ve mostly refrained from chiming in because I want the book to speak for itself. I really appreciate it when you catch a misspelling or some continuity error. That’s one nice thing about webcomics, you can go back and fix stuff.

On the topic of fixing stuff, I’ve been dying to go back and do some redrawing of the first 25 or so pages. I’ve been learning on the job, and I’d like the comic to look somewhat consistant, even though I’ll be doing my best to get better as an artist.

So what I’m going to do is take a little hiatus, so I can finish up the redraws and get a few pages ahead in Book Two. I’ve managed to keep up the weekly updates so far, and I plan to get back on schedule by the last week of June. I’ll try to have the redrawn pages posted in a week or so. I’ll post updates on my rarely used Twitter page: https://twitter.com/tangledriver

Many of the earlier pages look very cluttered and text-heavy to me, so what I’ve been doing is cutting down the number of panels per page . To make this work I added a new page between pages 4 and 5, so I’ll find a way to insert that without messing up the numbering of all the pages. I might change Page 1 to Page 0 and so on for the first 5 pages, so after Page 6 everything can keep the old numbering.

Another thing I’m going to be doing in the next few weeks is looking into the possibility of publishing a print edition of Tangled River. The final book (years away) will be pretty hefty, so if there’s some interest out there, I’d like to print it in 3 or 4 volumes. There are so many options for getting things in print these days, that if anyone has some helpful suggestions I’d love to hear them. I know Kickstarter is a possibility, though I don’t think I have a big enough fan base to do that right now. Would anyone like to see a Kickstarter for Tangled River-Book One:“The Fate Wheel”?

So, sorry about the delay. I promise that Tanya’s adventures will continue soon.
