    This just popped up on my radar. Thought it might interest others on the 'chapel as well.

    I shoulda posted something! I'm involved in Womanthology. Inked the promo image and some other stuff. ono I can't believe I forgot to mention it (it's kinda why I dissapeared from WC for a little bit).

    As of 1pm CST the Kickstarter has raised almost 24,000$ ! The goal is 25,000 If it keeps going as it is, the goal will be met in under 24 hours. It's been CRAZY!

    The tentative release date is this winter if I recall.

    It's been amazing how generous people are and how excited everyone is about the anthology! :D

    I'm just going to be really understated and say that this is an impressive development. Hopefully this bodes well for the future of smaller projects.
