Alchemists and what happens next

The Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan story Headsmen ended on Tuesday. I had a great time making it, and I consider it the best short ROCR story I've ever done. It helped rebuild my confidence that I can draw and write a bit, which had been fading in recent months.
It was, however, very exhausting and labour-intensive for me to create. So I've decided, subject to me suddenly and irrationally changing my mind, not to do any more short stories to insert between the older storylines to be run on the website in the near future. Instead, I'll just focus on projects that are already partly and wholly written: Feral, a ROCR story I wanted to use for the Hurricane Relief Webcomics Telethon but couldn't because it was too involved; Muscle, an adventure story featuring Tamlin written by Adam Cuerden; Yool, a Courtly Manners Christmas special, and Courtly Manners #3. All of these need revising, but none of these will be due any time soon, which suits me just fine.

In the meantime, I'll be publishing the remaining pre-web Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan stories. Alchemists from 1992 is first, followed by the much longer The Death Warrant. After that, some old short stories I still haven't published, then King's Drama. If all goes well, which it won't necessarily, that should keep me updating regularly until October or so.
I'm also playing with the thought of colouring some of the stories that are already online, because I've grown rather fond of colour, and some of the stories alternate between colour and black and white, which is distracting.
I'm also hoping to have time to do some spin-off stuff, develop some new comic concepts and stretch myself a little. But we'll see.

Meanwhile, Chronicles of the Witch Queen will remain on hold for a little longer. Geir is exhausted from the combination of work, commuting and raising a small child, and I'm not quite ready to resume my editing work. We'll do it in our own sweet time and aim to get the new material online in a few months; note the lack of a specific ETA.
