After a long deliberation I have decided to open a Patreon account!

As quickly as I manage to get back to my art, more and more issues arise, making it difficult to stay in an area where that is my focus. I know that my Lord of Shadows fans especially feel this because of writings that are still left unfinished. Not to mention the other books I have in my head, that I would love to be able to bring to anyone interested in my writing.

I'd like to use this Patreon to solve that issue, to bring my LOS followers the books they have been waiting for for so long, and my art followers more regular updates. if you support and follow both my art and my writing, its a perfect combination!

Reaching the ability to have a steady reliable source of income that can be COUNTED on, will bring me miles closer to reaching these goals.

Also, I want to make this a GROUP effort. I want the goals to reflect what you want, so those things may fluctuate and change as time goes on. I am always open to change, so if my followers want something specific for a goal, just make it known!

FAQ
Alright so, those of you who normally followed me prior to 2016 were fairly used to a lot of activity and regular updates. When the year started, I was faced with a very serious issue. Work conditions for my family were unstable, and while at the time I was working part time out of the house for extra cash, it was suddenly required that I bring home an actual income. 

I tried for a few months to work two jobs and keep up with my art and my family, but as the weeks went on I was fining myself increasingly tired and unable to focus on my personal work. I finally quit my second job after 8 months (the one that paid less) and have been working full time ever since, commuting an hour each way. I didn't really have the time to work on art, or writing, but I wasn't completely inactive. When I couldn't sleep I would jot notes in journals, and when I was not busy at work I would elaborate on those ideas.

I completed and continued a few commissions, but eventually those all fell away too (save one, which is still in progress) but instead I have a years worth of story ideas and world building. 

Now as we enter into 2017, my family's situation has returned to normal, if not better than before, and I no longer need to work full time. I started part time hours a few weeks ago, and now I am more than ready to get myself back in gear.

LOS fans - I have not ended or abandoned the series. In fact, the next book is entirely done EXCEPT for the actual typing and writing it out part, but the story is all there. Don't worry, I wont leave you hanging forever.

As for the art side, I am super excited to get back to actual painting and drawing. I have been almost entirely silent on DA for this last year, and now that silence is coming to an end. I'll soon be back to posting regular updates, rough chapters, new paintings, and new stories.

I have a lot I need to catch up on so it will probably be slow at first, but I am ready beyond reason to jump back in.

Busy Busy Busy...

Instagram and updates
So recently I have had to take a full time job in order to help my household income be a little better. Not to mention I need a new car so, there's that as well. Meanwhile I am also still working part time... and that makes it difficult to do much else. I am leaving my commission status as OPEN for the time being, as I am not closed for business just yet. I refuse to give up what i=I've built over the last few years, so while deadlines might stretch and progress might be slow, I am still in the game. In the mean time I have taken to Instagram, posting sketches and WIPs more than complete artworks to keep myself still publicly active while I pour most of my effort into making money. Follow me there at LiquidFaeStudios if you'd like more regular updates... even the most recent painting I uploaded here I finished more than a week ago.

Sadly, what this does mean is that my writing has pretty much come to a complete halt. I am not stopping, but the actual process of typing on the computer is nearly impossible. Luckily I do have plenty of occasional moments for brainstorms, idea branching and quick sketchy bits in journals, so progress is progress none the less.

The Seeds of Destruction and Book giveaways!

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 18, 2014, 7:18 AM
The seeds of Destruction is on its way!
It's hard to believe but the third book in The Lord of Shadows series is already on its way. I will not be able to post all the chapter art as I have previously done, because this time too much information can be gleaned from the images alone. To avoid spoilers, I will be posting PARTIAL images of paintings, enough to intrigue but not enough for you to be able to tell whats happening. There will probably be about 5 of the usual 10 images that i can post in whole, but since I haven't actually planned any of them out yet, I can't be sure.

Since we all knew what the Depth of Shadow was going to be about, I never bothered posting any snippits about it. But as requested, a short synopsis for The Seeds of Destruction:

Seeds of Destruction Cover Art by LiquidFaeStudios
Nire has been struggling to get her life back on track ever since she was 13. Now at 23, waking up in the hospital after a drunk driver smashed into her, she is faced with an entirely new set of problems. The accident left her with a shattered leg, and ever since she has been flooded with strange nightly dreams. Now the dreams have started to happen even while she is awake, and Nire cant help but feel like shes losing her grip on reality. When a strange white moth appears at her window in the middle of winter, the hold she had on her sanity slips, and she discovers an entirely new realm of impossibility.
Finding yourself in a strange new world is one thing, but finding out you have been there many times before is quite another. Her dreams, it seems, may not be dreams at all- and when a darkness threatens to take away everything she loves, it's up to her to discover the danger lurking in the shadows.

HUGE art sale! Originals and commissions...

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 25, 2013, 10:54 AM
Super low prices, in need of money big time
Hey guys, I have some troubles. Due to the governments recent problems my husband and I are looking at possibly not being able to get approved for a loan on a house we have been building. We started at the beginning of the year with a great pre-approval, but with all the issues our savings have been eaten up and 15K of it has gone as a down payment, which we will lose if we dont get the loan. The only other option is putting more money down, 10k to be precise. So I am having an art sale.

Take a look through my gallery, practically everything that is not related to LOS is for sale. 90% of my gallery, so just ask. Originals 8.5x11 or similar are going for 85-175 depending on size, and age. Smaller paintings, art cards etc, 15-35.

Super low commissions:
I'll consider anything, so posting definite prices would be ridiculous, here are a few to get you started though. 
I have tried to provide a good example of what you can expect for the starting price. Send me a note of what you want for a more accurate quote.

:bulletgreen: Sketches starting at $15 fav.me/d384b4d
:bulletgreen: Digitally colored drawings starting at $30 fav.me/d62pycp
:bulletgreen: ACEO watercolors starting at $20 fav.me/d35rwad
:bulletgreen: 5x7 watercolors starting at $65  fav.me/d54xe9r
:bulletgreen: 8.5x11 watercolors starting at 100 fav.me/d3hgvns

Willing to negotiate, and just in time for the holidays. Every little bit helps. 

NOTE ME for more info, commission request, or originals for sale.

Kindle has landed!

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 21, 2013, 4:34 AM
Kindle Edition of LOS is finally here!
 

It has taken a bit of effort, but the Kindle edition of "The Lord of Shadows" is finally available! www.amazon.com/dp/B00G1RR0EA

I imagine that the process for all of these things will be much faster with "The Depth of Shadow", as I will actually know what I am doing. 

I would also like to take a moment to introduce a side project that I have been working on a little in my free time, between LOS and actual work. (I know, I get time off and what do I use it for? more work! lol) I am going to simply refer to this as my Beauty and the Beast project. As most of you can probably tell, I have a bit of a soft spot for pretty girls and monsters, and this has always been one of my favorite stories. In case you're wondering, no, LOS was not actually based on anything Beauty and the Beast related. The opposite is true actually, I love the story because of the parallels it has with my own. I wasn't always attached to Beauty and the Beast, not until I started having my weirdo dreams that lead to LOS. I found a new love for the story, and I have read many, many versions, and it remains one of my favored Disney films, right along side The Little Mermaid and Sleeping Beauty. 

However, as much as I love the stories, especially the original version and the numerous retellings that are highly based on that, and as much as i know this fairy tale has just been done to DEATH, with a little encouragement from my friends, I figured why the hell not. There have always been a few discrepancies about Beauty and the Beast that, as much as I love the story, always bugged me. Things that seemed to almost fly in the face of the moral that was trying to be told. Disney, oddly enough, in my own opinion has the worst ones of all, not to mention all of the criticisms towards Beast considering Stockholm syndrome and other nasty, mental disturbances that seem to underplay the entire point of the story. So I'd like to make my own version, and I would also like to go about it in a slightly different way. I have no idea what this project will turn into. It may be a short story, a novella, or an entire novel. Perhaps even the start of a small compilation of stories retold from my perspective, or maybe even someone else's? No idea. But keep a look out for theme related art, and probably some chapters as well. It is of course going to remain on the back burner until I get DOS out, but fear not, I have a nice head start on the third book, so there will be more time for fun early next year.

Again I would also like to ask anyone who has read the book, please leave a review and/or rating on any of the following sites:

These reviews are crucial to helping people who don't follow me in social media get a better idea of the book, and just a few reviews so far has really made a difference! 

Also the giveaway is still going on, so if you haven't signed up and live in the US there is still time to enter!

And don't forget to follow me on my new stinky tumblr account, where I have started posting sketches and other in progress work that I have not been putting up here. link in footer.

In other news...

As for everything else, I am gearing up for the release of the second book, shadows help me. I am hoping wildly for an end of March time frame, which means I have between now, and then to finish most (all?) of the illustrations. :eager: I am also planning on numerous cons this year, including returning to Aggiecon, finances allow. However I should be without question participating in both the Stoutwood Fairy festival and Shepherdstown street fest again next year. Later as things start to settle into place I plan on posting an official list of conventions that I will be attending. Pretty sure thats all for now, folks. If you havn't noticed the recent poll, I'm looking for my followers to spread the word about LOS. If you have read it, please help me out by leaving a review on Amazon.com, Lulu.com, Goodreads.com, nook.com, or the ibookstore. Leave reviews in more than one place if you want! Help other people who might be interested by letting them know what you think.
I have also started a Tumblr account for LOS! It was a hard decision but I decided to go with it. A very easy and casual way for me to share everything about the story, in a less fancy format than the offical website. Come follow me!

The Lord of Shadows DLC

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 10, 2013, 7:41 PM
The Lord of Shadows Downloadable Content

Alright so I have been facing some issues with LOS, and here is part of my solution.

:bulletred: Chapters 1,2,3 and the prologue are currently still in the gallery and available to read. Also, they have been edited from their previous version and updated to the FULLY edited version found in the published book, so for those of you who have only read LOS online, you might want to take a second look.

:bulletred: LOS is also now available as Downloadable Content here on DA for 500:points:. You will recieve a complete version of the book, essentially identical to hard copy and e-book versions. The book is formatted in a PDF file, complete with 11 full color illustrations and designed for those of you who might want an option other than hard copy and e-book, or prefer DA payments due to lack of paypal or credit cards.

:bulletred: I would really like to leave LOS chapters up in my gallery, but I want to avoid loosing money by doing so. LOS is a very big project and it requires a lot of my personal time. The prequel to The Lord of Shadows, The Depth of Shadow, is well on its way to my gallery as well. I am considering adding a donation pool to keep unrevised chapters 'free' essentially. Let me know your thoughts on this, and if you would support something along this line. Naturally, if you were to donate 500 points you would receive a download of the PDF version of the book, 1,000 points a download of the PDF plus a PDF of The Depth of Shadow when it comes out, so on and so forth.

Foiled by Sta.sh

I am having a serious problem with the Stash journal writer - it wont let me write! so my creative solution is to edit my journal skin, and type the whole damn thing in my footer space. SO ANYWAY. short version:

LOS has officially been removed - I am planning on offering a DLC PDF version of the story for 5.00 - so those of you without e readers or credit cards will be able to get the fully edited version of the story anyway. The paperback and e-reader version ARE available at www.thelordofshadows.com in the store section.

Exciting news for you LOS readers tho, I have been making a lot of progress on the second book, and plan to start posting some teaser chapters. Hopefully I will have it ready by mid next year, sooner if all goes well. You are probably going to start seeing some unexplained LOS art, for chapters you have not yet read. ha ha, I am such a tease.

Street fest was awesome, and I plan on doing it again next year. I hope to see some of you again soon!

Now, if the help desk would EVER get back to me about my issue with STASH, i hopefully wont have to write an entire journal in my footer again. O_o;

LOS is complete

The epilogue for LOS has finally been posted, and in the next couple months I will begin to remove chapters one by one, leaving only the first three (prologue, chapter 1 and chapter 2) - Chapter 3 will be the first to go.

SO, if you have not yet finished reading, hurry up at get er done, OR save the text to your computers to read at a later date.

Again I want to really thank everyone for all the help they gave me in the creation of LOS, you guys are the best!


Aggiecon aftermath

The con in Texas was great! I got to meet a lot of new people, and gain exposure in a whole new market. I was thrilled to be seated next to Sam de la Rosa, a great comic book artist who worked on spider man and many other marvel comics. We had a good time behind the booths and on panels together, and I always love meeting seasoned professional artists.

I was also excited to meet George R.R. Martin, and the other guests at the convention. Some of which have already found their way to my DA page!

It was all together a GREAT experience and I am super glad to have been able to attend.


So, is it really the end?

Of course not. LOL.

BOOK signings abound, my first appearance will be THIS SATURDAY at EarthWorks in Leesburg VA.

bring your copy, or buy one on the spot. I will be happy to sign it for you, and with each signature comes a free LOS bookmark!

the signing is from 6-9pm on the 30th of March.

Also I have made a lot of progress with the coming books, nothing to post just yet, but I am definitely going to be posting teasers soon.

On a side note, commissions are back open!

LOS Young Adult Edition etc


The Lord of Shadows Young Adult Edition is now available for purchase. For those of you who may be sensitive to the two pages in chapter 14 that require a mature content tag, that area has been revised and edited to be more suitable for younger audiences.

Chapter 14 has also been re-posted here on DA with a TEEN label with the same edit.

On a similar note, the first three chapters (Prologue, chapter 1 and chapter 2) have been posted on TheLordofShadows.com permanently as a PDF file on the home page. - Chapter 15 has been posted here on DA, and the final chapter and short Epilogue soon to follow.

I will be systematically removing chapters come March, starting with chapter 1 and moving upwards. I will make a journal before I begin to remind people to either SAVE los to their computers, or read quickly.

I am working on getting the ebook going- but the formatting is a pain. trying to work out the whole table of contents thing... lol. Anyway it shouldn't be too much longer, couple weeks mehbeh.




Aggie Con


For any of you who live in Texas, I am officially a guest at Aggie Con in College Station, and I will be speaking on a pannle of other fantasy and sci-fi authors and artists including George R.R. Martin. (squee) So if you live near the area and want to come say hello the con is Friday March 22nd through Sunday march 24th.

It looks like LOS will release on schedule, with not an illustration for EVERY chapter, but I am none the less satisfied with the amount I have managed to get done. The book should be ready to go by the 14th, and I will make a formal announcement when it goes up.

I'm pretty excited about this, and even more excited about my coming convention down in Texas.

After the release of the book I will start work on prints, and special packages involved with the art from the book. The images in the book will NOT be in color, but they look pretty chill in b/w and I plan on offering a buying option that includes each full color 6x9 image.

I cant thank you all enough, the people here on DA really helped me accomplish this project, which I never really intended to be anything more than a story for fun here on DA.

Also, I used to be horrible at writing the 'middle' parts of books. I can take care of the beginning and ending of a story with ease, but somewhere from chapter 5-12 I would be at a total loss for events. This projects helped me grow as a writer and I have a ton of new ideas for future LOS related books. In fact, many of you suggested that I write the first story of LOS and Nire, but I really had no idea what happened aside from, as usual, the beginning and the end. Now thoughts are flooding my head with new ideas for the adventures that Lucian and Nire had together that shaped their initial relationship. I am super excited about writing the next story, its almost a chore to finish this one now! lol

NOW FOR THE SAD NEWS (sorta)

Yes, after publication I will post the final 3 chapters of LOS - they might be a little confusing or off feeling, they might not be. fact is the whole book has gone under MAJOR review numerous times, so the final few chapters will be for one, better writing with fewer mistakes, and two, reflect changes I made in the book that might or might not be very relevant, lol.

The bad news is that after I post the final chapters for you all to read, I will give between 3-6 months for you all to read those last 3 chapters, before I remove the LOS chapters from my gallery.  I want everyone who helped me write this, everyone who gave me the motivation and critique, to have the ability to read the end of the story, purchase or not. If you want to save the story, I wont condemn you for copying and pasting it into a word document for later reading. The hard copy is much, MUCH better than the chapters I have posted here, and I know that many of you (who have not already) want to purchase the hard copy, and will purchase it even after finishing the story.

Once the full story has been posted for 3-6 months (not sure exactly how long yet) I will let out a warning in a journal, reminding everyone to read now, or save the story to their computers. After that point I will be deleting 100% of the story, and in place I will be posting the first 3 (maybe 4), COMPLETED and edited chapters, which will be up forever and also available for free reads at www.thelordofshadows.com

I don't think I really need to explain why, because where money is involved that is pretty obvious, lol. But I do want to ensure that you all have enough time to finish reading the story before I take it down.

Also, you can look forward to the second book, of which I will be posting chapters in the same manner as they come, rough and horribly unedited as they are.

So a big thank you to everyone who was involved with the creation of this project :hug: :hug: :heart:

on a side note, the FAQ has been updated and my thumb is healing nicely. :D
