Thanks to all of you, our Kickstarter was a success, and we’re barreling into a third year! Yaaaaaaaay! \^o^/ Check out the awesome Dead Endings “thank you” graphic from Irene Flores!

Year 3 will begin with Issue 25, and we’re already deep in production–it’s another GIANT issue and we can’t wait to show you guys. We’ll release it sometime next week, once our Kickstarter supporters have been integrated into the site and we’re ready to start this year with a bang!

Issue #024–Summer heats up, and so does our Kickstarter!

sparklermag-july2015Hello all!

I’m done with Anime Expo and moving on to Comicon, but in-between, we have a great issue for you all! New chapters of Skyglass, Knights-Errant, and Orange Junk this month, plus HUGE changes in Tokyo Demons, and a whopping pile of Witch’s Quarry, to prepare for its new pages to start in August! Whew! Plus, our Membership Exclusive of the month is a 62-page side story to Witch’s Quarry–“Rogue x Knight” covers a bit of Wesyng’s backstory, or at least the part of it that overlaps with what Deshad was up to when he came up with his crazy prince-and-the-pauper scheme. It’s sexy and funny and dramatic, and you’re gonna love it.

So the other big news of the month, which technically started last month and is now continuing, is that we’re currently running a Kickstarter campaign to help fund Year 3 of the magazine. We’ve always had great support from our loyal fans, but we want to push for more stability, and maybe even be able to grow and expand a bit more in the coming year! Our creators have been incredibly generous with their offerings in the rewards tiers, and its their work that you’re funding with your precious Kickstarter dollars, so if you like what we do here and you want to see more of it, check it out, share it around, and think about donating! We can’t do this without you. <3 <3 <3

Onward and upward!

Issue #023, and Happy Birthday to ME!

sparklermag-june2015Hi Sparkler Fans,

Guess what?! It’s my birthday this month! And guess who just completely coincidentally made all my birthday wishes come true? Jen Lee Quick, that’s who! Returning to Off*Beat for a little encore, this month features a brand new chapter, set in the middle of Volume 3. Cut from the original release of the series, we thought it’d be fun to bring it out now, and give all you fans a taste of this little missing interlude. It’s so great to see the old gang back together again… I couldn’t have asked for a better present. *sob*  You get a little sample this week in Sparkler Monthly Issue #023, with the rest of the chapter going live on June 15th. Hooray!

In other Jen-Quick-related news, Gatesmith is going on a hiatus for a bit so that Jen can return to drawing Witch’s Quarry–we’ll be updating with new pages starting in August, so from now until then we’ll be blitzing through the chapters that were previously posted on Inkblazers and SmackJeeves, getting all you Sparkler readers caught up and ready for the latest and greatest! There’s lots of excitement in store, starting with a drakkun fight in Chapter 4! It’s awesome to see Vee in action doing knight-ly things…

And speaking of knights, things get a little rough for poor Wilfrid in Knights-Errant this month. Ouch…  Plus, the modeling competition reaches its final stage in Orange Junk, all hell breaks loose in Tokyo Demons, and the healing begins and gets very interrupted in Skyglass! Not to mention our Membership Exclusive of the month is a Sparkler School from Lianne, author and English-adaptation-expert extraordinaire about writing dialogue. You don’t want to miss it!

<3

UPDATE: Tokyo Demons body pillow voting begins now!

Tokyo Demons dakimakura! (300 members)

And if you haven’t read any of Tokyo Demons before, this is a great time to do so! Volume 1 even comes in awesome audio book form, if you like to ingest your stories aurally.

We hope you join us for all the geeky horrible wonderfulness to come!



Marching ever onward!

It’s almost spring, Sparkler fans, even if it doesn’t much feel like it on the East Coast. (And we just had a freak hailstorm out here on the West Coast!) So here’s a fresh, exciting new issue for all of you to enjoy!

March brings us a fabulous new installment of Windrose along with the second chapter of our charming new audio drama, The Cat Lover’s Circumstances. Plus, things get steamy in Tokyo Demons, the revolution in Dusk in Kalevia comes to a head, and two young men work through a rough patch in their friendship in the fantastic short story “Shut In Shut Out,” from Lianne Sentar and Grey Is… webcomic artist dee Juusan! And our Member Exclusive bonus of the month will be a special Skyglass side story–look forward to it!

Anyway, I’ve always felt that March is a month of transitions and new beginnings. It’s been two months since we went paywall-free on the Sparkler archive, and in that time we’ve continued to think about ways to further improve your Sparkler experience (TM!). You’ll probably notice some subtle changes to the site over the next month, with some slightly bigger ones probably in April, but our general goal is to make your reading and sharing experience easier and more enjoyable. As always, fan feedback on that front is very welcome–we want to make Sparkler a fun place full of great content that’s easy to browse and hard to leave, and it’s useful for us to know what we can do to make your experience better!

The most obvious change is a simple tweak to our non-paywall release schedule–for comics, we’ll be updating alternating series daily. So from now on: on Tuesday and Thursday, one new page of Windrose and two new pages of Witch’s Quarry shall emerge from behind the paywall, and Mon/Wed/Fri, two new pages of “Shut In Shut Out” will be released. We’ll be overhauling our series pages over the course of the month to make each individual series easier to track in our new system; the great thing about a digital format is that if we don’t like how things are playing out, we can just keep fine-tuning. :-) And on that note…we’re close to some very big surprises in the comics department that should start to roll out this month, so stay tuned!

I think this is a particularly terrific issue all around, and I hope you have as much fun with our content this month as we’ve had putting it all together!

<3

The Sparkler Staff



Share the Love!

Apologies for the delayed update this month. The latest round of snow on the East Coast took out our main office (internet went down for the count…), and I actually don’t know how to launch the new issues by myself! (Lianne and co. do all the heavy lifting on the website. I’m just here to be snarky and edit comics…)

Anyway, love is definitely in the air this month, with the big news being the launch of our brand new original audio drama, The Cat-Lover’s Circumstances! Help us welcome new creative team Lamp (writer) and Aiwa (illustrator) to the Sparkler Monthly line-up! We’re super excited about this series, since it’s our first audio drama to come in over the transom as part of our pitch process, and we think it’s the perfect fit for Sparkler! Cute girls? Cute guys? Cute kitties?! Sold! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

But romance is blossoming all over the magazine in February, and not just the love between a girl and her cat—we’ve got a new chapter of Skyglass, the second installments of short comics series “For Peace” and “Mahou Josei Chimaka,” and Tokyo Demons even features a surprise wedding, of all things! Plus some psychically-influenced lovey-dovey feelings all around (except maybe for Touya, and seriously, %&* that guy).

Probably the only non-romantic thing we’re releasing this month is Jen Quick’s Gatesmith side-story/pilot chapter, “Hungry,” which is our Membership Exclusive of the month. It’s hard to have hot make-outs at an almost-witch-burning… OR IS IT?! (Too soon?)  Either way, it’s a great short story, and it will segue nicely into the next installment of Gatesmith, coming in March. Look forward to it! And that’s not the only thing you’ll be getting from Jen this month,so stay tuned! :-D

Anyway, the best Valentine you can give us is that if you like the stuff we make, tell someone else about it! Our entire archive is now free to read, so it’s easier than ever to share the love and bring a little sparkle to someone’s day with fun original series written for women by women (Mostly! We actually have our first dude creator in the line-up now. :-) ). Our goal is to spread the feels as much as possible, and you, our fans, are the best advocates for the work we’re doing. Enjoy!

<3, as always,

The Sparkler Team

A New Year and New Ideas!

Welcome to 2015–may it be a bright and prosperous one all around!

So you’ve probably already noticed some changes to our site… While I think they’re mostly subtle tweaks, there were some pretty big structural shifts happening behind the scenes, facilitated very much thanks to our hard-working support staff! (Great work, ladies.) We hope they’ve made it easier for you to navigate our site, enjoy your stay, and share our content with fellow fangirls-at-heart!

In that vein, we’re officially dropping our paid archive model. :) The plan was to do away with the paywall if we hit 750 members, but the paywall itself prevents us from reaching new readers as well, so this was our compromise to make things easier on the public. So now it’s gone, and our entire chapter archive is free to read! Which means if you’re new to the site, you can go right now and read the entirety of Off*Beat for free! Or check out our two awesome short prose stories. Or read all of Jess Chavez’s spooky Dead Endings, and maybe consider buying a print copy (coming soon!). (Or listen to Awake, but actually, that’s been free to enjoy pretty much all along. Although you can now purchase an awesome digital download of the full series, which has a ton of bonus content!)

Sparkler Membership still conveys what we hope are meaningful benefits–early access to new content (now about a month earlier than free readers), multi-format digital downloads of the current issue, Member Exclusive bonuses, and for VIP Members, we’ve sweetened the pot again: now every single Cherry Bomb story is yours for no additional charge! But most importantly, your membership dollars pretty much go straight to our creative teams, and help keep the magazine afloat! We’re proud of the fact that we pay people up front for the great content they make for us, but we can’t do it without you. In the coming months (and years!), we need to get our readership high enough to sustain this place. We want our magazine to be something you value, and while we think we’re getting there (we’re already incredibly proud of the work our creative teams have done!), your feedback is always welcome, so let us know what you’d like to see in the future to make that paid membership precious to you.

(From a personal perspective, I’m really psyched that each of our short comics series get their own series page now! You can really see how much great stuff our teams have produced in the last year! More about that in our podcast this month. ;-) )

On the content front, this month we’re bringing out new chapters of Skyglass, Dusk in Kalevia, Windrose, Gatesmith, and Tokyo Demons for you to enjoy! Plus our Sexy Couples Calendar from last month will soon be available as a series of spiffy downloadable desktop backgrounds for members. We’ll have a team podcast with our editorial staff, talking about highlights of 2014, and what we’re all looking forward to in the new year!

As always, thanks a million for your enthusiasm and support! 2014 was a really exciting year for us, and we think we’re on track to make 2015 even better!

<3

The Sparkler Team



The end of the year is upon us…

Happy Holidays from all of us at Sparkler!

Gracing our cover this month are Sadie and Robin, here by popular request for a special holiday sequel to “Before You Go,” one of our short comics series from earlier this year. They’re bringing a touch of winter romance to our pages this month, and we hope you’re all as happy to see them again as we are! ^_^

Also on the comics front is a new installment of Gatesmith, launching a new story arc in the frontier town of Edgeward, plus the first installment (after a terrific teaser in November!) of KaiJu’s new short series Mahou Josei Chimaka, a little Sparkler-style magical woman series.

On the prose side, things (FINALLY!!) take a sexy turn in Dusk in Kalevia, and both the drama and the romance ramp up in Skyglass!

Last but not least, our Member Exclusive of the month will be a new podcast, wherein the Sparkler team (and perhaps some special guests!) discuss writing love, romance and sexy stuff for a female audience. *wink* Don’t forget to send us your questions via our social media channels!

And even more important, don’t forget that throughout December you can get 10% off on everything in the Sparkler Shop, including memberships and Distro titles, using the code: HOLIDAY

Among the things that will be available this month are paperback editions of both Gauntlet and a pre-order of Tokyo Demons Volume 2, plus the complete digital edition of Awake, our first original audio drama, which includes an hour and a half of all-new bonus material. Just in time for all your holiday needs! <3

On a more business-like note, we’ve been doing a ton of site upgrades lately–if you haven’t checked us out on mobile recently, our mobile experience is sleeker than ever. You also may have noticed that Sparkler Monthly comes with the comforting green lock to make sure you know that we’re a secure site–we’re excited to announce that this change comes because you can now subscribe to the magazine directing through our site, no PayPal account required! And if you want your local store, library, or club to order any of our books (and quite a few of our Distro books), we just launched our first quarterly catalog. There will be additional changes to the site over the next month or so, so stay tuned for more details!

 







Places to review Sparkler titles!

One of the best ways to support independent creators and small presses is to talk about them! Discussion fuels our creators like nothing else, and they love it when you leave comments in our forums.

In addition, for completed books that we sell through various channels, reviews on product pages and other sites can help encourage new readers to find our stuff. We’ve compiled a list of places (below) where you can review any of our books and comics, if you feel so inclined.

If you have an active review blog–or are an established creator–we’re always looking for more formal reviews of our books and/or pull quotes, and we can provide free review copies. Just contact editorial(at)chromaticpress.com or Tweet us at @sparklermonthly to request!

This list will be updated as needed.

Brrr!

The days are getting shorter and it’s starting to feel like winter outside, but we’ve got plenty of sizzling stuff this month to keep you warm, first and foremost being an amazing, fiery cover by the fantastic Asia Kendrick-Horton. Things are going to heat up in Skyglass Chapter 6 this month, but Phoenix is always smokin’. *wink wonk*

Gatesmith and Dusk in Kalevia are both taking a month off, but our line-up this month is still super exciting. We’ve got a thrilling new installment of Windrose, the dramatic next section of Tokyo Demons Vol. 3, the start of the brand-new mini-series For Peace from Dinner Ditz‘s Alexis Cooke (featuring lady truckers in loooove!), plus a teaser of a new KaiJu magical-woman mini-series that will launch in our December issue: Mahou Josei Chimaka!

That’s to say nothing of DNA-RW, a dark prose short by two creators we’re happy to welcome to Sparkler: Sarah “Neila” Elkins of Here There Be Monsters, and Ru Xu of Saint for Rent! Nel has an unusual ability–she can copy DNA and rewrite her own DNA to match it. When she decides to use this shape-shifting skill to help find a serial kidnapper, she swiftly finds herself in over her(?) head.

And last but certainly not least, our Member Exclusive of the month will be a behind-the-scenes chat with the actors from Awake, our first original audio drama! Stay tuned for that in Week 3 this month. ^_^ It’s to celebrate the release of the complete Awake series set coming to the Sparkler Shop in Week 4. And speaking of the shop, we recently released a limited run of Sparkler mini sketchbooks that are available now!

BTW, if you don’t follow our Tumblr or Facebook, you might have missed that we’ve got a bunch of our comics up on Comixology now, if you like reading things that way. (I know I do! The Ring of Saturn looks particularly great on my tablet. ;-) And if you’re looking for the perfect ebook to curl up with on a gloomy day with your hot beverage of choice, Dead Endings is now up and available in a new complete edition (with a bonus story!) from our shop, or via Amazon!

In other news, Gauntlet has been sent to press, and Tokyo Demons vol. 2 isn’t far behind! We should have those available in spiffy print editions for all your holiday shopping needs before too long. <3



Get your creepy on!

Happy Halloween, Sparkler Fans! The days are getting shorter and leaves are falling from the trees outside my apartment, so it’s time to snuggle up with some new content from Sparkler! (Los Angeles is currently having a major heat-wave, so it’s not exactly snuggling weather, but it’s the thought that counts, right?)

This month marks the return of Tokyo Demons and the start of Volume 3 of the series, so we decided to go extra-creepy on this cover by featuring everyone’s favorite massively unhealthy relationship, Touya and Kado! Bad touch, Touya, bad touch.

We also get a solid dose of the supernatural with the latest installment of Gatesmith, plus the tension ramps up and clothes are lost in Dusk in Kalevia, while in Skyglass, Moss (thanks to Phoenix) makes a breakthrough–kicking and screaming, no less!

Windrose is on break this month, as Studio Kosen prepares for a big month of travel, but we’ll see chapter 3 of the series in November, along with some exciting new additions to our comics library. In the meantime, Alexis Cooke is drawing us a terrific Dinner Ditz short comic for our member exclusive of the month–that’s coming in Week 3, and it’s going to be a real treat! In Week 4, we fill the last slot of this issue with more Tokyo Demons: the reader-prompted AU short Fukuhashi Fight Club.

In other news, our Membership Drive is still ongoing, as we aim for the next raffle at 200 members. Keep up the great work helping us get the word out, friends! (Like Coco, who’s running her own Sparkler raffle in October!)

And we now have lovely digital copies of Dead Endings, and Tokyo Demons Vol 2 up in the Sparkler shop–buy them and you get additional never-before-seen bonus material. And Before You Go is also available to readers through Comixology now, if you’re curious to try it out in a different electronic medium!



Tokyo Demons 2 ebook (complete) in the Shop!

shop-tokyodemons

The complete Tokyo Demons Book 2: Add a Little Chaos ebook–featuring revised text from the online serialization, new illustrations from Romy-chan, and two bonus short stories (one about Adam, one about Nick x Hatsumi), the latter of which is not available online–is now available in the Sparkler Shop! If you were one of the Kickstarter supporters or Book 2 subscribers entitled to this, check your inbox! You should have a download link waiting for you right now. <3 A paperback version will be arriving in the next few months.

Book 3 will begin in a few weeks, in the October issue (Issue #015) of Sparkler Monthly!

If that’s not enough Tokyo Demons for you, don’t forget that Cherry Bomb has three exclusive short stories as well: Building Up (Ayase x Kiyoshi), Once & Never Again (Sachi x Kado), and the post-Book 2 Save Me/Don’t Save Me (Kado x Sachi). That last one has been very popular. :)



Back to School with Sparkler!

It’s the end of summer, much to our dismay, but you can start the school year off right with some fine original fiction from Sparkler! This month we have the second installments of our two new comics series, Gatesmith and Windrose, plus things get even messier in Kalevia, Phoenix tries her hand at something ambitious in Skyglass…and we reach the emotional finale of Awake!

Our subscriber exclusive for the month will be a podcast with Off*Beat and Gatesmith creator Jen Lee Quick—we’re recording it next weekend, so please feel free to send us your questions for Jen via social media (Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, take your pick!) so we can include them in the podcast!

Plus, Gauntlet is now available as an ebook in our Shop—print version coming soon! And later this month, we’ll get the ebook of both Tokyo Demons: Book 2 and Dead Endings!

And thanks so much for your support so far in getting the word out about our Membership Drive! Your help here is invaluable. Keep up the great work on your end, and we’ll be able to provide you with even more great content on our end. As always, your feedback is very welcome as well–this is the second month where we’re releasing all our content at once (minus the member exclusive, which comes on the third Monday of the month), and we’re curious to see what you all think! Plus, we’ve changed our member downloads to have all comics and all prose in a single file (or one giant PDF!), and “series-so-far” downloads for individual series for VIP members. Is this something you’re all using? Are you enjoying it? Let us know what you think and how we can make your experience with Sparkler easier and ever more enjoyable!

P.S. There are many fine things about living in Southern California, but I really, really miss New England autumns…
