An Update on A Print Version
Comments and requests and pleading missives have been coming in ever since I announced we wouldn't be offering future print volumes or merchandise for Pictures of You. I thought it would be a good idea to let everyone know that we are now in the process of launching a Kickstarter. Yes, I know everyone has a Kickstarter now. Hell, my grandmother Kickstartered her laundry last week. Still, we're going to have one too.
I can't say exactly when it will happen, hopefully before summer is out. We're putting together a list of prizes or gifts or whatever the Kickstartees call them, from simple things like wallpaper packages to big tickets like original art from myself and others, and possibly even an offer of workshopping/draft-editing your story. Any suggestions, feel free to throw them out there.
Also, it seems semi-common for folks to exceed their goals and not be prepared for what to do with the extra funding. Our Kickstarter will be to publish Book One, and if we exceed the goal, extra funds will go toward printing Book Two and possibly Book Three, with an offer to backers to be able to purchase these subsequent books at cost.
Part of what's holding us up (though not all) is production of a video. I'm a pretty stupid guy when it comes to your various interwidget gadgetry, and trying to figure out a way to figure it out. If anyone wants to volunteer or trade their video mastery services, drop me an email. Don't bother suggesting video programs that I should use, though. They've all been suggested and I'm not going to know how to use anything you suggest anyway.
Of course, there's always the possibility I might just post that eHarmony cat woman video and let it be damned.
I'll have more updates on the Kickstarter status as they become solidified, and I'll make sure to announce the launch many times and long before the date. I wanted to let everyone know that your requests have not fallen on deaf ears.
Cheers, more to come.

Help with Video
Been reading for a while now, and I could help out in the video department. I've been doing video production for a while now, filming and editing and all that. If you need help with any of it, I'd be happy to offer my services. Just message me if you're interested.
