CALLING ALL GRAMMAR POLICE, SPELLING ENFORCERS, and CONTINUITY COPS!  When people mix up their, there, and they’re does it send you into a fury?  Do you have very strong opinions about the Oxford comma?  Does you’re head ring when your subjected to improper contractions?  (Is it ringing now?  Yeah, sorry, that was mean of me.)  I need YOU on the TYPO TERMINATION SQUAD!

Every book that I’ve made so far, no matter how many times I check it, and double-check it, and TRIPLE-check it, has had a typo by page 2.  I’m too close to the work, and I see what I know I MEANT to write, rather than what is actually there.  It is driving me to distraction.  So for LeyLines book four, I say:  NO MORE!  LET US STAMP OUT THE TYPOS!  LET US DRIVE THEM FROM THIS LAND!  (Or at the very least, let’s make it to at least page 5, right??)

So here’s your mission, if you choose to accept it.  Book 4 will collect chapter 10 and chapter 11.  I have made a spreadsheet to record all spotted errors.  I have put a link to it on the right side-bar as well, so it’s easy to access when you’re going through the archives.  ANYONE can edit the spreadsheet.  Errors can be text OR visual components, so if you’re reading through chapter 10 or 11 and you see something, SAY SOMETHING!  Just like you would if you saw a ghost.  *Holtzmann wink*

I will of course be doing my own editing, and so will Cory, but more eyes will catch more problems.  Problems we can fix!  So if you excel at spotting the tiny details and would like to help me drive out all the typos from book 4, please join the TYPO TERMINATION SQUAD!

Spider Forest Comics of the Week 2016!


Vector always dreamed of traveling. He got kidnapped instead.

Castoff is one of my favorite new reads of the year.  While there’s plenty of drama, it’s the humor that tickles me every time.  Like the lovely flight of the Vector-bird.  So majestic.  Trust me, you’ll know it when you see it.  It’s pretty unforgettable.

Sons of the Forgotten

Sons of the Forgotten is still a wee babe of a webcomic (only 16 pages into its first chapter) but it has a very promising start.  The art is gorgeous and the story super endearing.  It has a strong DnD vibe to it, with a party of adventurers and fantastical settings.  The creators clearly have a lot in store and an active community, so I think we can expect some big things in the future!

I really hope that this is enough to start Zhiro down a more constructive path to dealing with his feelings, and addressing issues. Puncture the scab, let it bleed out, and hopefully heal better (with better medicine and dressings, clearly).

Mizha! You finally said you’re actually sorry!

Also, I love the way this page looks like a stained glass piece. I am excited to see where this conversation goes next.

I didn’t comment on the criticism thread for the last chapter because a lot of people didn’t seem to dig it–there was a lot of talk about losing the greater story and stuff. But for me, the story is more about stuff like this. I know that there’s a greater arc going on with Dream Eater and the Scion and stuff, but honestly, to me, it’s a lot more interesting to have a bunch of screwed up characters explore their feelings in this very well thought out fictional world. Maybe it’s just because Shades of Grey is still one of my fav webcomics ever, but I dig it. This feels more authentic to me than a more even story structure, I guess. But that also could be because I have all the books and reread the comic that way, which helps understand the overall structure.

It’s good for me to have both positive and negative feedback. Ideally, I’d like a balance between these character-intensive pieces and the more plot-driven pieces. Every chapter is an experiment to determine where that sweet spot is. Someday I’m going to find it!

Again with the broken glass motif (this one looks bullet-hole-y) representing the shattering of an image – of the self and of others – in LeyLines! Except here it definitely seems to be more positive? They’re shattering the old dynamic and bringing a new one in. Slowly. But zhona zhi they’re actually communicating!
