In the midst of all my hype for My Impossible Soulmate (launching on Monday, December 5th), I still also have a new book coming out soon! It's not ready yet, but it's getting there. I'm hoping to have it out before the year is done, though! ^_^

So, have a little sneak peak at the new cover. I hope you like it!

Today is, incidentally, also the 12th anniversary since the first page of Rain. I would've liked to draw something unique since this is the first anniversary since the comic wrapped up, but it's been a busy few months and I've got way too much on my plate as is. So I hope you'll enjoy the new cover in its stead, and maybe I'll have things under control again by the time of the 13th anniversary to do something more proper. ^_^

Until then, happy twelfth anniversary to the thing that changed my life! I hope it made yours a little brighter too!

wait, I thought the comic was over!

is this an epilogue!?
Jocelyn 29th Nov 2022, 12:51 PM edit delete reply
The story is over. But there's still books to come and an upcoming new comic that I'd like to be able to hype for, and sometimes, the whim to draw these characters again may happen.

So, it's over. But it's never really over over. :)

you know, that actually reminds me of how I Adore writing this Big Sprawling Space epic.

it's Invader ZIM meets Doctor Who... meets Oddworld...

meets Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy meets Halo meets Kingdom Hearts! I..... never animated it or made it a comic because I can't even render it in my mind how it looks. shit. I am very deeply passionate about it and it's kind of like....well, for starters, it's all I think about.

secondly ....I first conceptualized the idea in my mind when My Grandmother died in 2006.

I love writing it and I would love to have people Cosplay and Fanart it. it's a pretty interesting story. let's just say it's taking a damn long time to get published.

I’d love to see someone cosplay my characters too. It’s such a recognition of your efforts.

you have no idea.

people often tell me that my dreams of being an animator are a pipe dream, but I will never give up on it no matter what.

it's been a life long dream since I was 9. about 19 years ago.

Absolutely wonderful. Can't wait to have this on my shelf with the rest.

Hyped for volume 6 to come out so I can order all 6 volumes in one go. <3
Syter6 30th Nov 2022, 4:51 AM edit delete reply
There's actually gonna be 7 in total

NOOO! Now I'll have to wait even longer. :P
(Still buying everything when vol 6 comes out)

Will 6 and 7 release at around the same time? I’m wondering if I should wait to get them together or ship them separately.
Jocelyn 29th Nov 2022, 2:42 PM edit delete reply

They'll release separately. I originally wanted to do them both at once, but I forgot how much work putting a book together is and I was burning myself out. Sorry for that.

So Volume 6 should drop this year. And I'll start work for Volume 7 next year. The last bonus chapter is probably going to be pretty long, so I'll work on it little bit little over the year, and hopefully I can release that in time for the holiday season in 2023. At least, that's the current plan. :)

Are we going to see baby Lydia in the final bonus chapter? Because I would like to see what Rain and Emily were like as new parents, you know seeing both their love and struggles of raising Lydia.

Oh heck yeah!! This year, too? I'm super excited for the next book!

Wow, it's fitting that I finished Rain for the first time exactly on the 12th anniversary, especially when it started when I was only 5! I remember a friend recommending me Rain a few years ago - I was too nervous about anything with the word "trans" anywhere near it to read much though. I've come a long way, and I'm really glad I decided to come back to this. Seeing Rain (and all the other characters!) deal with everything and have everything turn out well in the end gives me a LOT of hope about my own future. Thank you, reading this means a lot to me.

I was gonna try to get the existing volumes with the Lulu sale, but I think I better wait until volumes 6 and 7 are out.

But I'm excited

Will Vol 6 come out in time for me to put it on my Xmas list?

(Yeah, I could read the stuff on-line, but I'm kind of a dinosaur and feel more comfortable with physical books. All this "virtual stuff" feels kind of like I'm hallucinating it all.)
Allison (not that one) 2nd Jan 2023, 4:54 PM edit delete reply
I guess the answer is "no." :-(

(How about next Christmas?)

Yay volume 6! Thank you for your hard work!

And I'm intrigued about the new comic, can't wait.

I will be ready!

Will this volume contain the last batch of the chapters? Or is there going to be a volume 7 later on?
Phrown 30th Nov 2022, 4:27 PM edit delete reply
I like this cover. It’s very cute

Got the first 5 volumes today, they look amazing! Can't wait to complete my collection!

OMG seeing these two again brings back memories! I’m really looking forward to MIS, but I can’t get over Rain yet. T-T

This is kind of an odd question, but do you have a text script for Rain? I really want to introduce one of my friends to this story, but he is blind and needs to listen to everything he reads. With a text script, I could get it to work with a screenreader program for him.
