I’ve gone back to a blog-style interface for my main website, so that I can more easily post updates here.
Why hello, winter. You seem to have come early this year.
The big news is that KISMET IS BACK! Sun-Cutter is updating every Monday and I hope there will be no more downtime ’til the comic is done. I also have a Patreon funding page where people can support the comic — I’m hoping Kismet can at least pay site hosting costs (it’s actually about 1/3 of the way there already!). The Patreon will also offer behind-the-scenes glimpses as a donor perk.
In addition to that, I have a Kismet tumblr, kismetcity, where I’ll be posting update notifications as well as art, reblogs of things that remind me of Kismet, and so forth. It’s not very active so far, but once things settle down in my personal life (September there was a major illness in the family; October I’m mostly traveling) I’m going to start getting into it in a major way, so look for that!
One of my short stories (The Bride in Furs, which you can read online) is reprinted in Heiresses of Russ 2014: The Year’s Best Lesbian Speculative Fiction, edited by Melissa Scott and Steve Berman. This is the first time I’ve had my work solicited for an anthology (as opposed to submitting it myself); I’m pretty jazzed about it!
I also have a romance novel coming out from Dreamspinner Press under my Layla M. Wier alias.
And I’m going to try to be more active on social media starting in November. Right now, the place where I probably spend the most time is on Tumblr, where my main tumblr is laylainalaska — there’s some original art along with reblogged stuff having to do with comics, fandom, politics, and whatever else strikes my fancy. Here again, I’m going to aim for posting more original content starting in November.
And in conclusion, here’s another picture of early winter in Fairbanks, Alaska! This and the above were taken on Saturday around our yard.
