I'm so grateful to all of you who read my story, The Valiard Mansion
. I really can't express in words how much it means to me. I'm determined to do something to make the experience more enjoyable for you guys. I just feel that Valiard
is so much more than the product itself. I owe so much to my readers who have taught me tons and who have made me laugh and hold my head high. You guys are adorable!
Since I know only fans of the story will be reading well into the later chapters, I've decided that a cool way to do something for you guys is to start publishing new chapters with a Question Section
and a Fan Art Section
. It might make the PDFs a teensy bit bulkier, but I think it's worth it to keep you guys connected both with me and with other readers.
Do you have any questions you'd like to ask me?
It can be Valiard
related, writing related, drawing related, advice related, career related, or completely unrelated!
Anonymous questions are welcome, otherwise I will post your avatar and username to help get you guys some exposure.
(If you want to remain anonymous, just be sure to tell me!)
Want to share your Valiard fan art?
Draw your favourite Valiard
character or scene and get it published at the end of the chapter!
If you've already drawn a character and want it included in the next chapter, just let me know. I will not automatically publish every fan art or gift art piece I'm aware of—I want your permission first. You can also submit a short description of who you are and what inspires you to draw.
The aim is to get you guys some exposure and to develop new ways for you guys to connect.
Get in touch with me either by:
There is no deadline for this. There will always be more Valiard
chapters coming out, so if you miss this round, you'll have plenty of other chances. However, Chapter 9 is scheduled for release at the end of October
. So send in your stuff before then if you want your question or art featured in the next chapter.
And if you guys have any more ideas for ways to get you guys more involved in the project, let me know. I'm always all ears.
Big hugs to all of you!
