Journal Entry: Thu Jun 25, 2015, 5:49 AM
I've just been drawing like a machine lately. I mean, I'm impressed with myself for having Chapter 25's art done a few days ago, and already starting the next chapter. This puts me a good couple weeks ahead of the posting. It's nice to feel so focused. ^_^
On another note, a lot of people have been asking about the status of Rain - Volume 3 lately. I'm thrilled people are interested, but I'm sorry to say there's not as much done as I'd like there to be. The truth is, it's been a bit difficult juggling the regular posting and working on the book at the same time (and life and stuff). So I may try to take advantage of this buffer and work on that for the next few weeks. I may also take a short (one week?) hiatus after the current chapter ends to really get ahead.
I'm sure you're tired of my hiatuses after the two very lengthy ones I've had to take in the last year (I know I am). And I'm sorry to say that the current chapter does end on a bit of a cliffhanger (if you can believe that). But with that said, I really wanna get this book done sooner than later. I know you guys are itching to have it on your shelves, and it would just be a huge load off my mind. So one week in early July is all I ask. I even have Rain Delay ideas in mind for once, so maybe we won't feel the wait as much.
Now, this doesn't mean I'd be ready to release it immediately after the hiatus. But it would give me a lot of extra time to get a lot of extra work done on it, and make the rest of the task much less daunting for when the hiatus ends. This way, I won't feel quite as stressed about trying to divide my time between the posts and the book.
More details as that time gets closer though. There's still almost two weeks of posts for this chapter. ^_^
