Digger Omnibus Kickstarter Is Launched!

6/10/2013 10:42 pm

We have officially launched the Digger Omnibus Kickstarter project! And, as of this writing, we are already 1/3 of our way to the base project goal. Tonight has been quite a ride, but we still have a ways to go, and we also hope to get into stretch goal territory so that we can make the Digger Omnibus Edition even bigger and better.

You can view all the Kickstarter details here:

And you can share the campaign via this short link:

The goal of the Kickstarter campaign is to help us fund the printing of this omnibus edition, but we have come up with a number of fun rewards to give backers some extra fun Digger-related items to commemorate the event. At the upper levels, we have some exclusive merchandise like stained glass suncatchers and hand-forged pick axes! Please stop by the links above for details.

We've also laid out some extra stretch goals that will allow us to turn the basic black-and-white book into something with a bit more pizazz, including both extra content and extra finishing details. So even if you've already made a pledge, please spread the word and help us make this book as awesome as it can be!

Digger Omnibus Kickstarter Coming Soon!

5/21/2013 3:26 pm

Sofawolf Press is excited to announce that we are preparing a Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of the Digger Omnibus, Ursula Vernon’s six-volume graphic novel series collected in one thick volume! This is something we’ve had in the works for a little while, and we’ve been trying to keep it hush-hush before the launch, but it has been getting harder and harder to keep it a secret. People keep sending us emails asking whether we’re going to do a single-volume edition of Digger. They keep asking Ursula and Kevin about it on their blogs and their KUEC podcast. Digger’s fans very helpfully and enthusiastically suggest that a Kickstarter campaign would be a great way to fund the project. They’re all correct! And now that we’ve made it official that we are doing just that, we no longer have to dance around to avoid direct answers.

We are funding the Digger Omnibus via Kickstarter because we think it will be a fun event in addition to helping raise the funds for printing. Sure, we probably could have figured out a way to pay for the initial print run ourselves, but that would have put a crimp on our finances and created challenges for the other exciting projects in our pipeline. Getting the funding for printing up front relieves us of those worries, and through stretch goals, it allows us to consider making the omnibus bigger and better, depending on how much interest we can raise in the project. We’ll start at a basic black-and-white book, but then we can consider adding color inserts for the original cover art and guest art, embossing on the hardcover edition, and so on.

To make things fun, we have a bunch of unique rewards for those who want to pledge for more than just a copy of the book. What these awards are we will keep secret for now, but we will say that we’ve got a variety of Kickstarter-only Digger-related collectibles at a variety of pledge levels.

We hope to make the campaign go live in the next couple of weeks, so please keep an eye on our blogs and our Twitter account for more details. Ursula will undoubtedly be making announcements on her various social media accounts too.

Announcing Heat #10

4/8/2013 8:22 am

[Alopex] I am happy to announce that production on Heat #10 is well underway and that we plan to release it at Anthrocon this summer. As usual, the stories and comics come from a mix of new and old contributors, and they include relationships of a variety of sexual orientations.

Stories:

  • "Best of the Best" by Franklin Leo, illustrated by ShinigamiGirl
  • "The Delicate Game" by Dark End, illustrated by Dark Natasha
  • "Flight Path" by Huskyteer, illustrated by Anyare
  • "Pushing" by TrianglePascal, illustrated by Kacey Miyagami
  • "Repaid in Silver" by Kandrel, illustrated by Toulouse

Poems:

  • "The Fangs of Love" by Bears from Arcadia!, illustrated by Stigmata
  • "In Season" by Tempe O'Kun, illustrated by Katie Hofgard

Comics:

  • "I Miss You, Too" by 333456
  • "Isis" by Keovi & Kyell Gold
  • "Mail Bonding" by Blotch
  • "Rough Day" by Donryu

This volume's cover will be by Serene Wyatt, and we'll have ads by Sefeiren and Blue_Panther. The volume wraps up with an Afterglow Husky by EclipseWolf.

Although we had discussed making this tenth volume an all-color publication and we considered delaying its release until fall, in the end, we decided to keep Heat #10 in its traditional black-and-white format, and we will be releasing it on schedule (barring any unforeseen complications). The Teagan half of Blotch is responsible for convincing me that we actually could keep this volume on schedule, despite having a delayed start, and has taken over management of all things artistic. For editing, Dark End stayed on after his work on Hot Dish to help out with some of the stories, and Jeff Eddy has returned as editor for the others. I am greatly indebted to all three for their roles in keeping Heat #10 manageable and on schedule!

(We do have plans for expanding Heat into more colorful realms, but we have moved those ideas into another project, to be announced at a later date.)

Can't wait until Anthrocon!

New Distributor = Cheaper Shipping for Australian Readers!

4/7/2013 4:46 pm

We're pleased to announce that we now have a distributor in Australia. Fans of our publications in Australia and New Zealand will have a much cheaper shipping option than ever before!

Australian Fandom Conventions, the people who bring you ConFurgence (formerly MiDFur), have opened up an online shop at ausfancons.bigcartel.com. Having just launched the site, they are currently carrying only a limited number of our titles. However, they are happy to hear what other titles you may be interested in! Let them know via their contact form, and if there is enough interest, they may expand their offerings the next time we send them a shipment.
