The Waiting Game

 The splash page from the new Inquiring Minds short story.

As a small business, it's important to give updates and announcements... to talk about what's going on, in the hopes of creating buzz, and just to let people know what you're up to.  Of course, you want your posts to be meaningful, not full of fluff, but what do you do when weeks go by and you're not in a position to share?

Well, I guess you blog about it.  The funny thing is, I have a lot going on, but I'm in a kind of limbo, where I'm waiting to hear from several companies and people about things that will shape my company and where I'm going with it.  Yeah, that sounds vague, but that's the problem!  A lot of you have been involved in The Ghost Pirate Skeletons of Three Craters Lake, and have a right to know what's happening; however, I don't have enough information right now to give you the whole story.

Another scene from the Inquiring Minds short.

The comic book is done, I can tell you that. I had some really big announcements to make, but some things have changed, and thus the future of HappyGlyphs Comics is changing.  And with that change comes a lot of Plan B's, which require extra time and attention.

So... please stay tooned. As soon as I can see the big picture, I'll share it with you.  Since my last post here,  I've written and drawn a brand new Inquiring Minds short story which will be appearing in the 2013 SPACE anthology this April.  I'll also be hosting my first panel at the SPACE show, which is quite exciting.

And I will tell you much more about these stories as we get closer to SPACE.  Meanwhile, I'm waiting and waiting for a few people to find the time to get back to me, so I can decide the future of the comic book, and the company itself.

Very frustrating, but that's business these days...    JOHN :0)

The completed story, laid out for review.
