Almanac – Laws of Alchemy

February 28th, 2014

Today’s Almanac entry is the Laws of Alchemy. I’m giving the three most important. For you FMA fans out there, you will notice that the Law of Equivalent Exchange is not on the list. That’s because that law is a subset of “All is One.”  Since everything is one, you can’t destroy or create matter — you can only transform it.

Only 1 more day until the deadline for our Art Contest. We’re coming down to the wire. We’ll announce all the submissions on Monday and begin the first round of voting with the seeding contest on Monday. Please send us your art!


Some good news and bad news today. The bad news first. Our colorist had a computer meltdown this week and wasn’t able to get page 8.22 done. So the good news is we have a surprise almanac entry. I’m discussing the final three processes of Alchemy.

The deadline for our Art Contest is days away. Join the contest for a chance at our cash prizes. We would love to see your take on our characters and a world of colonial fantasy.



Chapter 8 Page 21

February 24th, 2014

Bertrande’s laboratory is devastated on Chapter 8 Page 21. Jassart has survived the experience; Bertrande does not appear to be as fortunate. Another two characters arrive on the scene on Page 22. Please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics to see who it is.

Speaking of blasts from the past, I’m pleased to announce the artists for the vignette following Chapter 8 are Shazzbaa of Runewriters and Steph Stober of Final Arcanum. I’ve long been a fan of Shazzbaa’s work, and she did a superb job with Daughters of the King. If you’re a fan of Shazz (and you should be), you know that her comic is currently on hiatus and she’s not taking any personal projects. However, I already had her on board for this vignette when she reached that decision. We worked it out with Steph Stober joining the vignette team as the colorist. I’m so glad we did. Steph is another great artist with whom I’ve been wanting to work  for a while. I’m very appreciative of Shazzbaa making the time in some difficult circumstances.

Entries for the Snow by Night Art Contest are due Saturday March 1 by midnight. We’d had some incredible submissions last year and the SbN team is looking forward to seeing this year’s creations.

Christina Major is running a Kickstarter Campaign for her hilariously awesome comic Sombulus. She’s so close to making this happen. Please join me in contributing her her Kickstarter and making this a reality.


Almanac – Alchemy Processes 2

February 21st, 2014

This week’s Almanac entry is the next two alchemical processes – separation and conjunction. Alchemy always works on the mental and spiritual levels as well as the physical. If I do my job right, you’ll see these processes at work on the characters in the story.

We’re doing a lot of alchemy in the almanac this chapter. I’m trying to give all interested artists more fuel for the theme of our Art Contest. Only one more week to go! Send us your submissions soon. We’d love to see your take on our tale of colonial fantasy.


Chapter 8 Page 20

February 18th, 2014

The powder explodes and sends Jassart flying on Chapter 8 Page 20. To see more carnage, please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

I’ve got some recent convention news. Snow by Night will be at Animazement in Raleigh NC on May 23-25 and at Connecticon in Hartford, CT on July 10-13. I applied for an Author’s Avenue table for GenCon, but was wait listed. Cross your fingers with me to see if we can get into the four best days in gaming!

Submissions for our Art Contest are due March 1. Send us your art. Cast your hat in the ring. Cash prizes for the top 8 places.



Chapter 8 Page 19

February 17th, 2014

Jassart squanders his chance to get the aether on Chapter 8 Page 19. Poor Jassart. He put a human life before aether. Bertrande does not approve. To see a hint of what happens to Jassart next, please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

It’s been a busy week in the press department. Two Geeks Talking has uploaded our interview from last Saturday. Kurt asks us all sorts of questions about Snow by Night and webcomics. There’s a spoiler section at the end where Brittany and I give away far too much of what we have in store. And Brittany was interviewed by Katsucon, while she was in the Artist Alley. She does a great job representing us. Way to go, Brittany!

Art Contest! Two weeks to go. Cash prizes to the winners. Glory and honor to all who enter.


Almanac – Alchemical Processes

February 14th, 2014

While Eric is busy packing up for Katsucon tomorrow, I’ve taken over updating the Almanac for him tonight! Take a look at the alchemical processes of calcination and dissolution, two opposite transformations to the water in a substance.

If you’re going to be at Katsucon, make sure to swing by and say hello to Eric and Brittany! They’ll have prints, buttons, and books for sale with a special con discount available. And if you can’t make it to a con near us, you can always check out our online Store for colonial fantasy swag!

We’ll see you on Monday with Jassart’s final decision… Until then, you can still catch a sneak peek over at Top Web Comics.

PS. Don’t forget about our upcoming Art Contest!


Chapter 8 Page 18

February 11th, 2014

Jassart and Bertrande deal with the aftermath of Blaise’s escape on Chapter 8 Page 18. Jassart faces the choice of helping Bertrande or rescuing the aether. To see a hint of Jassart’s fate, please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

Katsucon is this weekend. We’ll be there in the Artist Alley, enticing poor unsuspecting anime fans to read alt history comics. Also, I want to remind everyone about our Art Contest. Share all your arts with us! The Snow by Night Team would love to see what your vision of our characters.
