Open Call for Contest Ideas

Because we still have a small stash of limited edition, numbered hardback copies of volume 1 to give away, we're asking all of you what kind of contest we should run to give some of them away!

If you have an idea for a fun contest, send us a message.

Volume 2 Update

The 2nd volume of 13 Legends is coming along nicely, and we're on schedule to begin posting pages soon after the conclusion of the first book. As of today, we're exactly halfway through!

Flash Twitter Contest

We're giving away a copy of the 13 Legends Kickstarter Edition for FREE (shipping included) to one lucky winner! Simply follow the series' twitter account and Retweet the the contest tweet to enter. * This edition cannot be purchased... only won...

Here's the fine print...

A single winner will be selected at random from twitter users who retweet the original tweet announcing the contest no later than 11:59 PM, December 6th, 2013. To be eligible you must be a U.S. resident and the book must be shipped within the United States. Entrants must not use multiple twitter accounts, and must only retweet one (1) time. Retweeting multiple times will not increase the odds of winning, and is against Twitter's user policy. (It will also piss off your friends)

UPDATE

And the winner is...

Congrats, Sarah!

Congratulations Book Winners!

APE was an excellent experience, and I was so thrilled to meet some readers in person! Here are some of the lucky winners of the limited edition books we had drawings for:

(* from left: Jacob, Lane, Jon (me), Karina, Angelica, and Maia.)

Karina is a fellow writer who's written a book, and Maia has her own webcomic!

And keep a lookout for an ONLINE CONTEST I'm cooking up so some of YOU have a chance to win a book as well! I'm working on the specifics and will make an announce in the coming weeks.

P.S.

Angelica was nice enough to forward me the center photo to post. It went down like this: I opened the email she sent, took one look at the photo, realized that's really what my hair looked like, closed my laptop, walked out the door, two blocks down the street, into the nearest salon, mumbled something about the photo and might have even used the word "stat" like in an emergency room, and had new hairdo within like 30 minutes of the receipt of the pic. True story.

Angelica, if you're reading this, I owe you a debt I may never be able to fully repay.

Alternative Press Expo (APE) 2013

SAN FRANCICSO, OCT. 12th — 13th

I have a table at this year's Alternative Press Expo, so if you're in the Bay Area over the weekend of October 12th & 13th, please stop by and say hello! (TABLE #534) Attendees will have a chance to win free, hardcover, numbered, limited Kickstarter editions of the first volume of 13 Legends! These copies are from the tiny stash we had leftover from our 2012 Kickstarter campaign, and are not available for sale. The only way to get this particular edition is to win it!

A Bright Future for 13 Legends

After nearly three years of development and production, countless hours honing the story and world, a Kickstarter campaign complete with the inevitable (and unenviable) learning curve of orchestrating a limited edition hardback print run from the across the Pacific, not to mention the hundreds of blood sacrifices... ah, you guys don't want to hear any of this...

What you want to hear is that 13 Legends is now a free weekly webcomic!


WHY A WEBCOMIC?

Simply put, I want this story to be read and enjoyed by as many people as possible.

Since 13 Legends is sprawling in scope and challenging to produce, a traditional print publishing deal was quite tempting. But when I took a hard look at anything that might stand between the story and its readers, I found that a traditional print-first publishing deal felt a lot like a wall. And an outmoded, 20th Century wall at that.

So join us each week in the 18th Century that never was, as we unravel the mysteries and magic of 13 Legends!

Volume Two Production Kicks Off

It's official! The second installment of the 13 Legends saga has moved into production. Stay tuned for some sneak peaks in the near future...

FEBRUARY 2013

Exclusive Kickstarter Edition Ships Out!

It was (almost exactly) a year between the end of our Kickstarter campaign and the day we finally shipped our last book. What a mammoth undertaking! In all we shipped to 39 states and 23 countries. The postage bill was a thing of pure nightmare. But it was an awesome experience. No regrets. We also received a lot of extremely nice notes from backers praising the book. That kind of feedback really means a lot. Thanks peeps. We'll work hard to make those first editions collectors items.

MARCH 2012

Kickstarter WIN!

The results are in, and our Kickstarter campaign was a tremendous success. A big, heartfelt thank you goes out to all of you who backed us.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Now comes the real work! We're going full steam ahead on the completion of Volume One, and have already started work on the script for Volume Two. Stay tuned!
