Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I posted here. I meant to do so earlier, closer to the end of Chapter 7, but time and life did those things they like to do with your plans. I hope you’re all keeping well and in good health!
The previous chapter was a pretty long and eventful one, and I very much appreciated the comments over its ups and downs. Thank you all so much for following this story, for sharing your thoughts and worries for the Prince, and for your heartfelt and amusing observations! In this chapter 8 and upcoming chapters, there’s tribute to a number of things that are very special to me. I hope you enjoy it, and the stories to come.
I’m also particularly excited this week because Canzine starts tomorrow (Oct 22-25, 2021). It’s a really wonderful zine festival local to my neck of the woods – Toronto – and features creators from all over! Since the pandemic started, they’ve been operating in an online format, partnering with other events like TCAF (Toronto Comic Arts Festival) back in the spring. Once again, there’s a consolidated storefront to enable you to shop from multiple creators instead of dealing with separate stores and shipping. This will never cease to amaze me because of how much work it is to coordinate – and you’ll likely never see many of these self-published works all together in a big store, offline or online! They have a fun food theme this year, and I’ll be exhibiting in the “Fry Fest” section. There are so many awesome indie creators to check out; I think everyone can find something inspiring or engaging, and discover interesting artists and writers that you may not have heard about otherwise. Please take a look if you can! You can find it at canzine.ca.
Sending you all positive thoughts as you go about your day. I hope you all find many things, both big and small, that bring you joy!
