#IndiePrideDay2018 Giveaway

0

Keep in touch with me via social media. I’ve been spending a lot of time on Instagram (@thesickrosevamp) participating in the #junetoon drawing challenge this month. BTW, I’m drawing again after not being able to for a year. Does that mean my third book will finally be happening again? Let’s hope so!

I’m giving away copies of my first two books as part of #IndiePrideDay2018. The giveaway will start on July 1st powered by rafflecopter. It’s free to enter. I will post the directions on my social media sites via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. I would also like to do a sale on my books as I have done in the past for this occasion.

My YouTube library of fan videos continues to grow, and I have reached 100 subscribers to my channel. I believe this unlocks new customizable features to me as the user, which I will need to investigate further. Thank you everyone that has subscribed and been enjoying my videos.

I had a nice time at Bowl-A-Con this past weekend. I got to hang out with some of my comic convention friends and make new ones. I also got some good drawing in! You can see for yourself in the time lapse video and photos below.

#GivingTuesday

0

There has been radio silence from me during the time Black Friday seeped into Thanksgiving, the weekend, and became a whole Black Friday Week. Now it appears Cyber Monday has turned into Cyber Week. (a/s/l?)

No, I haven’t been shopping. I didn’t do any special sales at my webstore on my books either. I spent way too much time promoting sales last year and did not make one sale. Instead, I used that time recovering from throwing my back out two weeks ago moving furniture, getting caught up on cleaning, and decorating for the holidays. also-availableDuring that time, I also had a breakthrough on figuring out which software to use for the layout of my third book in The Sick Rose Vampires series, The Heart is a Rebel.

I will save you the details, but I had beaucoup problems and frustration putting together my last book. There was time and energy lost with using sub par software when it could have went towards making additional and better quality illustrations. Despite lack of funds and training on the fanciest and current ways of putting together a book or the means to hire someone who can, I may have figured out a way to make this go easier. This has always been a fly by the seat of my pants operation. Without yet saying what I’m specifically using this time around, so far so good.

So, it’s “Giving Tuesday”. A day set aside to make consumerism feel better, if there is money left after Black/Cyber Week/Month/Whatever events to donate to charity. Let’s make giving a part of our lifestyle, and not just because we need to feel better about our spending habits, or because it’s the holidays. If you don’t have the moola, donate your time or skills. Last week I got to spend time with elementary school kids making art.

drawing-for-a-cureI thought today would be a good day for me to announce that I’ve been working with Drawing For A Cure, a non-profit organization of artists who contribute artwork with all sales going towards the American Cancer Society. You may have seen my Joker/Harley fan art as a coloring page. Soon you can get it as a full color print exclusively from Drawing For A Cure, with all proceeds going to a good cause. WIN

Did you do something special for #GivingTuesday? How do you make giving a part of your life the rest of the year?
