And that ends my tale.
Well, my first one anyway. I’ve still got some work to do on it, some fixes I found after posting pages, things I wasn’t happy with, text that got messed up with a software change etc. And I need to come up with a cover and such to be able to wrap the whole thing up into a book. A 24 page story works out to a nice size to print up and make available.
So now what? Well, Jeff and I have just started talking about that. The overall goal is of course to return to the current DFS story where we left it. Jeff’s looking at trying to convert to working digital, but he needs some time to learn and adjust. And to find out what sort of schedule will be manageable. We might even explore alternate approaches to the regular grind, posting larger updates less frequently, working in blocks with pre-set breaks. It’s all sort of fluid for now.
My personal plan was to begin working on another fairy tale, I’ve started writing and doing design sketches, but as I’ve said I’d like a bit more prep time for my second story.
And there’s the whole issue of a site that’s meant for Dressed For Success that’s been featuring my fairy tale for the past few months. I never made changes to the site itself and it’s kinda a weird mess.
At the same time, a new entity has popped up on the webcomic landscape. Tapastic is a new site that is aiming to become a sort of YouTube for comics. And it’s got some neat features and is getting a lot of eyes. As an experiment I posted up the Colt Renfrew story over the last couple weeks and it’s already had a lot of readthroughs. So first and foremost I’m looking at moving Bertram’s Tales to Tapastic, leaving this site just for DFS.
We’re also looking at running the original DFS on Tapastic, hoping to reach a new and wider audience than we did at it’s current home.
All of this will play out over the next couple of weeks. Expect some minor changes on this site and be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, RSS and now Tapastic. That way you can know once we’ve figured out how we’re going to proceed. And you can follow my next tale on Tapastic.
Thank you for staying with us, Alex and Walter will return.
