Abstract Gender available on Amazon for Kindle!

Yes... you heard me right... I have published Abstract Gender on Amazon as an eBook for people to read on Kindle.

No... there is nothing new... I copy edited half the first chapter before I put it on there as a test to see how things worked. The next publications I do should be copy edited better, hehe...

Right now the first 3 chapters are available as book 1, the price is $2.99. If you would like to have your own copies of AG on your kindle to read or share, please come support me! I intend on posting books 2 (chapter 4-6) and 3 (chapter 7-9) before Christmas. I myself am a little tight up for money so if you would like to help support AG and myself-- now you get your own copies of AG when you do it!

I am not sure right now whether or not I will keep future chapters for strictly purchases or if I will continue to post them here (I know, selling out or whatnot-- but a brothas gotta eat!) but we do not need to worry about that right now-- Chapter 10 is sadly coming along slowly and will 90% likely not be ready for the new years deadline i previously set for myself.

So please-- GO CHECK OUT ABSTRACT GENDER ON AMAZON! share it with friends! Help support small authors!

Interests
I've been tight on cash lately and the artist I was commissioning character designs from raised their prices (I supported her in that decision, although she's now gotten work to the point where she's out priced me)

 I'm trying to figure out ways to raise money to continue commissioning the artist to keep providing characters for you guys to enjoy. If anyone has ideas, PLEASE let me know. 

I was considering trying the patreon route-- although I fear people may view me as a greedy money grubber like they did during the comic days. One thing about patreon is there are supposed to be tiers of better things for people who pledge a little more-- and I don't know how to fulfill such things-- all I've got is writing-- I mean-- I suppose I could be showing patreon people drafts or maybe even post it there first and a week or two later release it publicly-- but I hate not posting work right away-- I could also allow patreon people to help choose outfits or what characters are next. 

if you actually read these journals now would be an ideal time so I can get ideas and also see if there is even enough interest out there for me to try anything. (If it takes off we could start seeing characters not yet designed-- like Willow and Karah-- and see Andie and Rachel in volleyball outfits, or just misc other outfits for characters.)

Hello.
I just wanted to stop in and say thank you.

I am not sure how you will respond to this, but back when Abstract Gender had its own website, It helped me come to terms with who I am-if only slightly at the time.

Both your work and that Anne lady's Wotch comic were coping mechanisms I used during my last year or two of highschool.
 I finally accepted who I really was after the first year of college (and a summer psychology class). 
So, to all those horrible websites that call you a "shill" (I think that is the word I am looking for...), I say that your work holds a special place in my heart.
Thank you.

Thank you for that. I am happy that stuff I put out there were able to help people out and I do enjoy hearing from those that do say that it was a help. I'm quite humbled as I sometimes forget that there were actually lots of people who read and enjoyed the story. I think :iconannie13: should get a double nod than since The Wotch was one of the three webcomics I consider an inspiration for me having stepped up. 

If you haven't read it already, I hope you enjoy the WIP novelizarion of Abstract Gender that I have here on my dA. I've felt it's really enabled a better fleshing out of characters that hopefully people who enjoyed the comic will also enjoy this.

Novelizations are frequently a way to delve deeper into a character's psyche-- unless ypu go all Alan Moore and just make a book that LOOKS like a comic... not that I have any problems with that.

That's amusing timing. I had a day off and was determined to get back to work and was in the process of rereading the first 11 pages.

still breathing! Actually the important part (well-- I guess breathing is important) is that I am still writing chapter 7-- I wanted to restart the journals at the same time I post the next chapter-- thus that delay-- this chapter is REALLY being difficult to write-- My goal is to finish it before new years.

Hey, your comic's website appears to have expired.

Please get it back up and running so I can link people to it?

The only website the comic has been on in about the last five years has been dA. Link them here.
