Also, the requested PowerPoint will be up once my computer is running again, thank you!
Hello everyone! Thanks very much for your patience during August and September. I will be doing the bonuses for August and September, as planned, and will be hosting the four Livestreams (the two scheduled for September, and the two owed from August). Preparations for YCon and Rose City Comic Con, including readying the book, took a very large amount of time, as I did not have any merchandise beforehand or any experience. There was a lot I had to learn and set up, such as the accounting procedures to ensure that I was recording my income correctly. I know that it must have seemed like radio silence, and for that I am sorry, but please know that I intend to fulfill all Patreon obligations as soon as I possibly can.
So far, I have only done YCon (Rose City is next weekend), and already I have learned a lot, though business was modest. I think I now have a good procedure and good setup, and the things that I learned about managing a table will definitely help me moving forward. I am especially grateful to my friends at Grave Impressions who patiently walked me through the steps.
I don’t expect that con preparation will ever take as much time as it did this summer, so I do not mean to make a pattern of tardiness for what I owe you. I regret that I didn’t take many of these steps earlier so that I could avoid causing disappointment, but please understand that it shouldn’t happen again. I now have a far better sense of what I should order and what I can sell, plus how to record it, store it, and display it. Again, thank you for understanding when I have been difficult.
Hi anyone new! Thanks for coming aboard, I’m so happy to have met so many new faces!
(Btw I don’t know if I got the contact info for the people for tomorrow, so please text or email me to make sure! Thanks very much!!)
Anonymous said: Dear Notation, WHO is the humanlike female figure surrounded by the seraphs in "Losing a Pet" [Aug. 14]? Is it Eve, Biblical mother of mankind, or pre-Australopithicene "Eve", source of humanity's mitochondrial DNA? Or is it perhaps Lilith; according to apocrypha, the demonic first wife of Adam? There's an unaccounted-for wing in the lower right that *might* be hers... is "she" another angel?
Hello and thanks for your question. It’s only a visual representative for humanity, in this case female because women are the majority of the world population so it felt appropriate. Both wings in the lower-right are Zima’s, since I decided he should have two pairs.
