Two Conventions and a Signing!

9/11/2014 9:01 am

It has been a busy time for Sofawolf Press. We're back from Eurofurence and have finally begun to settle back in to our normal routines when once again we are off to a conference to be guests of honor, this time at Furry Migration. Since Kyell Gold will be in town to share the guest of honor spotlight, we're offering another book signing opportunity on our website. Please read on for summaries and details!

Eurofurence 20

Last month we flew to Berlin for Eurofurence 20, returning to Germany for the first time since EF 14 at the Ringburg Hotel. We tried learning a bit more German in preparation for this trip than last time, but it wasn't enough for us to be really conversant, so we ended up slipping back into English most of the time. Fortunately, Berlin is a lot more cosmopolitan than Suhl, and we were able to navigate the train system and wander around on our own with confidence. After arriving in style, we wandered around Berlin, checking out its beautiful sights, exploring cultural differences (check out the retweets and favorites on that one, seriously!), and even wandered to the countryside for a bit of birding.

Eventually, the convention got rolling and pulled us in from our explorations. The Eurofurence folks really put on a fantastic show, and the new Estrel hotel is a great place for a convention! People really got into the con's CSI theme, and the hotel staff enthusiastically embraced and participated in the joy and excitement we brought to the place. We helped out BlackPaw in the con's bright and airy dealer's room promoting local talent, checked out the very popular dances, and enjoyed the impressive variety of entertainment (dispite a bit of waiting for things to get started...), and got to know some of the other talented members of the furry community a bit more intimately.

But all good things must come to an end, and we finally made our exit from the Estrel, and endured the long trip home, complicated by combined impacts of con crud and jetlag.

Furry Migration

This weekend brings the exciting debut of a brand new furry convention, Furry Migration right here in our own back yard! Once again, we get to play the role of guests of honor alongside Kyell Gold, but also with our more southerly neighbor, Foxfeather. In addition to having a table in the dealers' room, we'll also be hosting several panels.

We're looking forward to seeing what our local furry community has put together for this new venture into hosting a convention!

Kyell Gold Book Signing

Because Kyell will be in town for Furry Migration, he's graciously offered to stop by our warehouse and sign any orders that contain his works. So, if you have always wanted a signed Kyell book, now is your chance! Just stop by our website (remember to enable viewing of adult products) and check out all of Kyell's titles. Don't forget that he's also appeared in many volumes of Heat, too!

Deadline: Saturday, September 13.
Kyell does have to fly home eventually, so please place your order by the end of Saturday in order to make sure he has plenty of time to make his flight!

Off to Eurofurence!

8/15/2014 8:05 am

We are off to Germany for Eurofurence 20: Crime Scene Berlin! This is a special trip for us, because we will be appearing as Guests of Honor and doing guests-of-honorly things. Our last visit was in 2008 when EF was being held in the Ringburg Hotel. We had a great time then, and we loved having the Black Forest right outside our door, but we're looking forward to some great new experiences in the much more cosmopolitan city of Berlin.

We will be keeping our online store up and running during our trip. Larry The Intern will be stopping by the warehouse a few times during our absence to process orders that come in. There may be a couple more days for orders to go out than usual, but we hope to keep our customers from waiting too long to get their books.

We look forward to meeting up with the fabulous folks on the other side of the Atlantic in their home territory. If you'll be at EF, please stop by and say hi!

Announcing A New Project: Franko, Fables of the Last Earth

7/23/2014 8:34 am

We are excited to announce that we will be publishing the English translation of Franko: Fables of the Last Earth by the Chilean writer and artist team Ángel Bernier and Cristóbal Jofré! Franko was released in its original Spanish translation a year ago, and it has received great reviews in the world of Spanish comics and literature. We are proud to have the opportunity now to bring Franko’s enchanting tales and strong, vivid images to our English-speaking audiences.

Franko and Sofawolf business meeting

Franko is a collection of six fables about the eponymous lion and his friend Shin who live in the challenging environment of the arid high deserts of Chile. Throughout their daily lives they encounter a variety of characters living and dead (and of other unquantifiable states of existence) who, in the proper tradition of fables, teach them valuable lessons or give them a richer appreciation for the world around them. Franko’s world is foreign, yet familiar, with a rich mythology that feels ancient, even though it is totally the creation of Jofré and Bernier.

Translation is already under way. Our hope is to present Franko’s stories in a readable English version that allows the reader to become fully immersed in the stories, yet still preserves some of the flavor of the original Spanish. We’re grateful to our collaborators in Chile who have been responsible for the majority of the translation work, while we have been working on our end to make sure things will sound natural to our English-speaking readers’ ears. While most of the work has been smooth, one poetic piece at the end has posed a special challenge as we try to preserve both the original meaning and the poetic flow of the words.

If all goes well, we should have Franko ready for release at Further Confusion, 2015. We are looking into options for funding the print run with pre-orders, and we’ll announce details as they are confirmed. Our goal is to print Franko via offset processes, which will keep the cover price down in the range of Nordguard or Prydwen, as opposed to the price point of our digitally printed color graphic novels such as Dog’s Days of Summer and Red Lantern. Offset printing would also enable us to more easily offer a quality hardcover edition.

So please keep an eye on our blog, LiveJournal account, and Twitter for updates!

In the meantime, you can hop over to our Coming Soon page for more previews. You can also follow Franko's progress on Tumblr and Facebook.
