Valley of the Silk Sky

Chapter 9 continues with Chadsen’s exploration of the mysterious ruins of the Red City. Read all about it here:

That Patreon post includes a bit of world-building nattering about, well, buildings. Specifically, some of the architectural innovations in the Valley. Excite! Check it out if you happen to be a giant nerd.

I expect I’ll have some Important Announcements next week, regarding upcoming conventions and panels and whatnot, so check back, why don’t ya.

Cheers,

Dylan

Valley of the Silk Sky - The Long Run

Yes indeed, Chapter 9 has begun, and you can read the first page here:

As you might maybe have possibly heard, the entirety of chapters 6-10 are collected into the newest Valley of the Silk Sky book, The Long Run Part Two. As you may have noticed, Chapter 9 only just started posting online, so you can read ahead by way of this tome, which may be obtained here:

DiNK this weekend

Unfortunately, I won’t have my own copies of the book in time for DiNK this weekend (April 14-15, 2018), but I shall be there nonetheless.

I’ll be at table 232 on the second floor, and I’ll also be on three panels:

4/14 at 4:45 PM – Back to the Drawing Board: Non Digital Mediums for Creating Comics
DiNK 2018 panel Back to the Drawing Board

4/15 at 1:30 PM – What is Queer: Discussions of Identity in Independent Comics
DiNK 2018 panel What is Queer

4/15 at 2:45 PM – Creating Comics and Community in Colorado
DiNK 2018 panel Creating Comics Community in Colorado

So! Come to by table and buy some comics, come to these panels and hear a bunch of cartoonists talk about comics. You cannot lose.

Cheers,

Dylan

Valley of the Silk Sky part 2 book is here, is now

Valley of the Silk Sky part 2 book is here, is now published on

Valley of the Silk Sky: The Long Run Part Two

Yes indeedy, the time has come. Or will be about to come, depending on what format you’re looking for. But first, about the book:

Part Two collects chapters 6-10 of the story. Right now I’ve only published up through chapter 8 online, so you get to READ AHEAD, you naughty things.

Print: 60 pages, full-color. $15.00.
Digital: 54 pages, full-color. $5.99.

[NOTE: page count difference for print and digital is due to spacer pages, content is identical.]

Where to get it in print:

Where to get it in digital:

Why is the release date for Amazon right now and the Gumroad release is delayed? Well, simply put, my copies aren’t scheduled to be delivered until the 16th, so that’s when I will have them to distribute. I decided to set the digital release for the same day to keep things kinda sorta consistent.

As far as ComiXology goes, I just yesterday got the notification that it was accepted for their Submit platform, so it’ll probably be a few weeks yet before it’s available there. But if that’s your preferred platform, know that it is indeed coming.

The first convention where the book will be available for purchase is TCAF, as part of their announced list of debut books. Neat!

Anyhow, see you next week for the commencement of Valley of the Silk Sky chapter 9, and news about DiNK, which is coming up April 14-15. Stay tuned!

Cheers,

Dylan

Valley of the Silk Sky Part Two print book out for proof, convention news

Valley of the Silk Sky Part Two print book out for proof, convention news published on

Valley of the Silk Sky: The Long Run Part Two

Yes indeed, I have finished up the art for chapters 9 and 10, put together a cover, assembled everything in InDesign, and lo, off to the printer it goes.

I just ordered the proof this morning, so the next step (after getting it in my hands and peering at it with my eyeballs) is to check it for errors and then either smash the “publish” button or fix whatever needs fixing and proof it again.

Based on past turnaround times, this has me on track for a TCAF debut. So if you’re gonna be in Toronto for their very fine Comic Arts Festival, you will be able to purchase said volume at that time. If you will NOT be in Toronto, fear not. The book will be available for online order, and I will of course have it at all the other conventions I’m doing this year.

Speaking of conventions, I got off the wait list for STAPLE! (yay!), so looks like I’ll be in Austin in September.

Next show coming up is DiNK here in Denver, just a scant two weeks away. While I won’t have copies of the new VotSS book in time to sell there, I should have a proof you can peruse (unless it turns out looking terrible, in which case no).

ANYHOW. TL;DR: lots of things soon!

Cheers,

Dylan

Valley of the Silk Sky LGBTQIA YA webcomic

Yes indeed, page 84 marks the EXCITING CONCLUSION to chapter 8, so check it out:

If you want to read the whole chapter through from the beginning you can do so either here on Studio NDR or here on Tumblr.

Chapter 9 is, of course, already finished. My plan is to start running it in early-to-mid April. I have some minor art corrections I want to do to previous pages before it kicks off.

In the meanwhile, I will indulge in the world-building appendix posts I usually sandwich in between chapters. These posts will just be on the Tumblr site, not here, JSYK.

Also, $1+ subscribers to my Patreon will get to peep some concept art during the break, so if you want in on that, gimme one whole dollar.

Spirit in Action Conference

I’ve just arranged to have a table at the Spirit in Action Conference, a community event for trans folks and their friends and allies, which is being hosted by the Mile Hi Church on Saturday, March 24. The conference is free, so if you’re in the Denver area you should come!

On Friday, March 23 the Mile High Church is hosting Janet Mock, which event is NOT free, but you should come to that, too.

Cheers,

Dylan

As is often the case, the Patreon post has some additional nuggets of world-building info, should you yearn for such a snack.

WhimsyCon This Weekend

In convention news, I am to be found this weekend at WhimsyCon here in Denver.

I’ll be in the vendor’s room most of the time, tabling with Out in Colorado. So if you’re looking to buy some books, this is a fine time to do it.

I’ll also be on several panels:

Fri, 9:00 PM-9:50 PM, Author Readings (Mesa Verde C – Maker)
Sat, 4:00 PM-4:50 PM, Fantasy Map Creation (Main Events)
Sat, 5:00 PM-5:50 PM, Gender Representation in Fandom (Wind River B – Costuming)
Sun, 9:00 AM-9:50 AM, QUILTBAG Characters and Stories (Mesa Verde B – Victorian)

To see panel descriptions, you can go to the schedule listing by participant and scroll down to “Dylan Edwards” to find my stuff.

I believe this is the first year for this show, so if you’re in the Denver area, come on down and give it a big ol’ welcome!

Cheers,

Dylan
