Oren’s Forge will be printed and available in French from Paquet (www.editionspaquet.com) early next year!
I’ve been going back and forth with the publisher for a few months now, working to get everything in order.
Largely, that consists of finishing the comic itself, adjusting pages with full bleed panels to accommodate the French page size, and going back and re-doing a few things from early on that have been bugging me. I’m also currently working on both of the French edition covers, for the first and second book.
For publishing/printing/sanity, I’m splitting Oren’s Forge into two books, both ~62 pages. From Paquet, the French language edition of the first book will be out January 2017, and the second in the summer of 2017.
But what about Oren’s Forge in English, you might ask!
My plan for the English rights has always been to pitch the comic to a short list of publishers first, and see if anyone’s interested. It’s off to make the first stop on the rounds soon.
I’ll know more about English editions in a few months, and (fingers crossed) you’ll probably be seeing one sometime next year!
Update to Posting Schedule:
I’m dropping down to posting once a week for now, to Mondays (sorry, guys.) Why? I’ve got a lot of irons in the fire right now and just need to free up a little extra time/flexibility.
Will the whole of Oren’s Forge posted online?
That’s a good question. The entirety of the first part (62 pages) will be posted online. Right now, my plan is to stop there, and probably post the first part of the second half starting sometime next year. I honestly don’t have a plan yet!Who knows!
I do know that I want to make as much of the story available as possible, in balance with one day making a little return on it.
Thanks as always!
