After many months of insanity, some editing, some cursing, and some getting completely fed up, Sky is out. No shit.

Sky (print), 227 pgs, $12.50

Highly theoretical ebook edition will be out when I get around to it. If you notice any really glaring errors, let me know, so I can fix them for the second edition. Perils of not being able to afford a proper editor…

Autographed Copies:
So, that said, there are a few people who have asked for autographed copies, and to save on shipping, I’m going to try to do all of those at once. Cost for the book will be exactly the same, but shipping will be a little more, because it’s gotta come to me, and then go back out to you. If you’re interested in this option, drop me a message before 10/28 with your address (or at least the city), so I can estimate the shipping cost for you, before you commit to actually paying it. I’m looking to place the bulk order before Halloween, but shipping to me has the potential to take 6-8 weeks, so … yeah. If I get them to you before Christmas, it’ll be an act of god.

That said, there are two autographed copies I’m putting on hold, for the winners of this ludicrous fanworks contest I’m about to start up. Pompous ass? Me? Yeah. But, I’ve got at least five fans, so it’s worth a shot.

Ludicrous Fanworks Contest:
Prizes: An autographed copy of Sky. (One for best fic, one for best art.)
Submissions from: 2010.10.15 – 2010.11.30
Winner announced: 2010.12.05

Theme: Fuck canon. Seriously. In the ear. As long as it’s got at least one character from Sky, I’ll count it. Do what you will. Bend the world to your whims…

How to enter: I’ll take stuff however you can get it to me, and all entries will be reposted in a master list, with your names attached to them, so everyone can admire your awesome work. Expect to hear from me within 36 hours on any entry made, in any format. If I don’t respond to say I got it, assume I didn’t and try a different method.

Rules:
1. It’s gotta have at least one character from Sky.
2. I’ll take up to three entries per person, since there are so few of you, and most of you are ridiculously creative people…
3. You can NOT win in both categories, but you can enter both.

[ Sky – Master Post ]
Title: The White Crest – Plates I
Fandom: Sky
Characters:  Sin, Lyman
Rating: G-
Warnings: Busted lights are busted.
Notes: It’s the hotel bar — or a very small corner of it, anyway, and I had to retexture the bastard thing and light it all by hand. And yes, I figured out that I’m missing the floor lights. I got the ambients, I got the lights on the bar, but I need at least one spot from the foreground, or this shit is going to continue to look flat. No further comments, just images.

Title: Sometimes Capricious – Plate
Fandom: Sky
Characters: Sin, Sebastian
Rating: G-
Warnings: None.
Notes: "THIS IS MY DISMAYED FACE. DO YOU SEE IT? I AM DISMAYED." *coughs* Uh, I got nothing. I’m too tired to really comment on this, except to say it’s the doorframe scene.

Title: Sky – Front Cover [Part II]
Fandom: Sky
Characters:Lir, Baron, Severen, Betty, Arkady
Rating: T
Warnings: There’s an awful lot of leg.
Notes: I have done the thoroughly implausible. This is finally at the correct resolution, if slightly lower quality than intended — not that you can probably tell… I’m gonna warn you: if you click for full size, that image is 1837×2775 and it’s about 4.5MB.

Title: Front Cover [Part I]
Fandom: Sky
Characters: Lir, Baron, Severen, Arkady, Betty
Rating: T
Warnings: I think you can see Betty’s underwear.
Notes: This goddamn render… I’m going to run a defrag, clear out all my temp files, and reboot the machine, tomorrow, and then try again to get this closer to the 300ppi I’m expected to deliver for the damn covers. Highest resolution I’ve been expected to produce, to this point, was 100ppi, and I can barely get it to render that large, without crashing. (And that’s a small image, for the record — 613×925, which is what you see here.) Anyway, you guys have been watching me fight with this base image for months. The argument persists.

Title: Taste Like Sky
Fandom: Sky
Characters: Sin, Sebastian, some girl
Rating: T
Warnings: Implications of het, implications of faggotry, expletives, angst
Notes: I needed to fix this. It was the first part written, and it’s the last part revised. It was … almost right, but there were a few things that just didn’t fit. This should be right. Shout if anything looks like it’s still busted.

Title: This Winged Hour
Fandom: Sky
Characters: Sin, Sebastian
Rating: G-
Warnings: Fluff
Notes: I realised that there was one more transition point missing — the house. This is 1991. The band’s gotten popular overseas, and Sebastian’s starting to see where ‘famous’ becomes ‘rich’.

Title: The Top of the Well
Fandom: Sky
Characters: Sin, Sebastian
Rating: T
Warnings: Expletives, bizarre relationship dynamics
Notes: The last of the flashbacks from Taste Like Sky. This started at like … two or three hundred words. Now, it can stand fairly well, by itself. Sin’s married, but he was drunk at the time. Sebastian can’t figure out why he’s so upset by this revelation.
