Villain-in-Distress is officially up on my Patreon! As promised, the introduction is free of charge for anyone to read so head on over and check it out with handy link I’m giving you! I am kind of proud of my crappy Villain-in-Distress logo I made. I worked hard to make the font look like something on an old 1960’s silver age comic book… harder than I should have. Look, I haven’t done real art in a long time! I’m wayyy out of arting shape! Regardless. It’s made and you can go read the Introduction. Please be aware that the actual story is a downloadable PDF so you’ll have to click on the pdf attachement to the post. I hope I don’t see anyone asking me where the story is! I’ll know who didn’t read my post XD
Some of this will be a repeat of what you’ll read on the Patreon post, but unlike future installments of Villain-in-Distress, the Introduction is free. Future installments will take the place of my MGP Vignettes as my $2 Patron incentive. Why do one free chapter? Well, with MGP I have all of the MGP storyline to give a reader a feel of what an MGP Vignette might be about. So I didn’t feel I need to have some sort of preview for a viewer to decide if the Vignettes were worth their two bucks.
However, Villain-In-Distress is a completely new story that you all have no idea if you’d enjoy. I felt I should give you all a sample of what it’d be about before you’d decide if you wanted to do the $2 a month donation. I’d hate for someone to be kind enough to get all excited to read a new Taralynn story only to start reading and find out they hate the tone of it! Don’t get me wrong, I’m confident in my work and really am enjoying writing it. And yes, I know a lot of you who are already patrons would say, “Hey! I’m just giving you $2 because I love your work! Anything I get out of it is a bonus!” and trust me you have no idea how warm that makes me feel. But I know there are a few people who’d only pay the $2 to see the new story so I want to make sure those people don’t feel duped into a story they wouldn’t like. Either way, I appreciate your time and consideration.
I swear this won’t affect MGP’s release schedule. I made my goal of 20 MGP chapters in 2017 and I’m sticking to that goal! Now that I’ve gotten a better handle on my time management, I’m confident in my ability to get this accomplished! I have a rough schedule release for the year on my phone and everything! It’s going to be awesome! So for those of you who are totally here for Magical Girl Policy alone, don’t worry, you’ll be getting just as much content as last year and then some! But for those of you who also want a bonus TG story involving superheroes and supervillains… well Villain-In-Distress is perfect for you!
The first chapter (is it Issue?) of Villain-in-Distress will go around the 14th of each month, except for this month, when it goes up on the 15th. I need an extra day to finish the first chapter… or issue. I’m having a real debate on whether I should stick with calling these chapters or, because it’s got a comic book feel, if I should get a little dorky and call them issues. I made a StrawPoll that you can vote on! Enjoy!
Thank you all for your continued support and I look forward to hearing from ya’ll. You are the best fans a person could ask for!
Starting 2017 on the right foot!
