Dialog for This Comic
My life has gone crazy for the past few months.
I've had both a shoulder injury (osteoarthritic tendinitis) and a leg injury (sprain), and we're moving (not far, but we have to prep and sell our house).
I will be taking a hiatus from Saijiki Stories for several weeks (I am not sure how long, I'm sorry) in order to heal up and get my life in order.
This doesn't mean no comics!
I'll be posting Crow Feathers #1: Poached Egg, plus additional work-in-progress art until I'm back on my feet again.
I hope to be back with Summerside within the next two to three months. I have a plot and everything. I just need the time to write it and prep it for you all.
Please be patient with me so that I can bring you the awesome, because Summerside is awesome, and will be a fitting closure to the series. Promise.

So this is Mark typing:
Some of you might be familiar with a little site called www.PurpleFuzzyMonster.com. It’s where I’ve been working on some game designs, and Leanne and I have decided (for accounting simplicity’s sake) to wrap PFM’s products in with Saijiki Stories. In other words, Autumnside Productions is now the umbrella of a micro-scale entertainment group, so there are going to be some changes to the sites to reflect that. The immediate changes will be here at Autumnside.com, so no worries for those of you with links to Saijiki Stories.
Purple Fuzzy Monster’s first game is Starships, a space combat miniatures game. After we make it available through all sorts of on-line stores, we should have learned enough with it that the Saijiki Stories will be made available through those same outlets.

There are reasons why Summerside is taking forever. At this point, the question is to the tune of … “well, of course X is going to do Y, X would be a fool not to, what with having the means, motive, and opportunity for grand success at it. How does our heroine escape that particular peril?”
I will actually script Summerside and get it up and posted one of these days. I swear. It’s just a lot more complicated than it looks on the outside.

Still working on video game content, but I’m pleased to report that scripting has started for Summerside, if only in fits and starts. I have one of the missing pieces that I needed for it to make sense. (:

Hi everyone! Happy Thanksgiving, if you’re in the US, and if you’re elsewhere, have a terrific day! (:
I have a guest strip up in the blog over at Little Vampires! Drop by and check it out, and check out Becky’s great comic while you’re there. (;
Hope you’ve enjoyed Springside! There’ll be full details on Tuesday, but I’ll be taking a short break for a while. This doesn’t mean no comics (there will be comics!) but it will be a bit before Summerside starts. Take it easy, and have great holidays!
