So the plan was to get Rise From Ashes back up for August. Unfortunately, my day job has intervened, in a rather dramatic manner. Hollow Fields has a fourth volume coming out next year that I’m currently working hard on. Within the last month, we’ve come across some big issues with the art for the book, not the least of which is that a significant amount of the artwork needs to be redone. As in, an entire chapter. And a bit. I was hoping to have Rise back in at least a limited format; but right now I need to focus on doing my best with HF4. It’s been tough news, but that’s how the job is. Once the Hollow Fields art issues have been sorted, I can get back to Rise. Alas, it’s going to be closer to the end of the year than I’d like. Editorial mandate states that the art for HF4 is due in November, so after that’s done I’ll be free to pursue other mangawork as much as I like. Woop.
In any case, thanks for your patience, readers! I promise the wait will make the return of Rise all the more cromulant. In the meantime, follow me on twitter for updates and random pictures of cake. Also, feel free to send me random pictures of cake.
