Vote over at TWC and you can see part of a panel from tomorrow's page! Exciting

Thank you for all your responses from last week! It's helped me narrow down what's working and what isn't. I'm surprised by how many people found me through TWC! I don't know if that's the case anymore, but I'm glad it worked so well in the beginning. I think I might throw my money after more banner ads, because that seems to get eyeballs, maybe if I push them towards sites people go to for comic-related news. The downside is that I need to find some energy reserve within myself to focus on advertising and woooah I do not have that right now. It's getting dark at like, 6:30. How do you find spare energy when your body is ready to be in bed by 8pm? My sun lamp, it cannot compete with this.

People tend to get a little hostile when I feature irrational parents in this comic, so I'm just gonna remind you that Sara is a complex character with complex feelings towards her husband! I actually based her somewhat on my gramma and her relationship with my grandpa. He wasn't always a great guy or a great father, but she was hopelessly in love with him even after he died. Sometimes people's feelings can't be rationalized away even when you know all of their flaws. 


May merch drop! New tote bags and hoodies are being added to the Hivemill store! (I may be the webcomic on Hiveworks who utilizes the merchandise the most, from what I've seen...hm.) The hoodies are unisex sizing, but the tshirts run rather fitted, so I recommend sizing up!  (Two of the moons are flipped on the product images, but the files the shirts are printed from are corrected, so you should have moons in the correct order. My bad!)


HTBAW Fandom Wiki is up and running! Thanks to Myk Streja and ShitaraRen for tons of help with moderation efforts and everyone else who's done a ton of work on adding information and filling out the Wiki. Thank you everyone for contributing and it's an amazing and super detailed resource!

Feel free to check out my goofy Amazon store if you're so inclined (this is an ad, as I get a tiny commission if you do buy something), or I have some merch up on Society6 if you're looking for my old store link! Thanks to everyone who's come out to support me through Ko-fi and Patreon!
