The Romantic Junkies and Patreon
By now you've probably seen the beginning of Book Six, The Romantic Junkies, and are guessing as to what's going to unfold in this chapter, though we may have some surprises yet in store for you. We're past the half-way point in the series now, and events are...underway.
In the time we were down, those few months beginning the year, we were able to get back up to speed after the loss of notes and script for the next few books. We were also able to regroup energy and inspiration to push into the second half. While not everything is the same as it was before, the basic plot is still unfolding as planned and we've put the details back together in a way that excites us. Hopefully it'll live up to everyone's faith.
Thanks again to everyone who flooded us with well-wishing and shows of support. We know we lost some readers in the hiatus, it's just a truth of online updating that people get lost when there's downtime. Most of you stuck with us, though, and others will find their way back. We like to think we'll be able to find some new readers this year as well, so we keep on.
A big development for us too is our new Patreon campaign, where readers can help support the creation of the story. Our Patreon is essentially a monthly tipping effort, where supporters (or Patrons) can send us a little money each month, and those little monies turn into bigger monies that let us buy material and internet access and, well, food. We know not everyone can afford to send us big cash or the cost of books, but even a single dollar a month helps. And as our way of saying thank you, there's an extra thank you that is exclusive to Patrons, something different every month.
We hope you'll visit our Patreon at https://www.patreon.com/PicturesofYou and consider dropping a few coins into our hat. Every dollar is appreciated.
Cheers, and thanks again!

Ok I can't for the life of me find out how to comment on the comic page, so i'm gonna post it here.
Dear Mr. Twist,
I'm sorry I've been away from your comic for so long. Life, you know? I recently found myself on SmackJeeves again and saw your comic on my "Recently Updated" section. I ended up catching up on the whole two books that I've been behind, and I just want to say, Bravo! I've been following your comic for a while now and I think it's safe to say that "Pictures of You' is by far my favorite comic on SmackJeeves. The heart and soul you put into this comic is just amazingly outstanding. Also, it makes me feel great to see how much your art has progressed over all these years. I'm glad I came back to catch up on all this amazing story that I've been away from for far too long. I just want to say, thank you, for bringing us all this amazing story. You keep doing what you're doing and we will all be here.

Hi Amante! Glad to see you back and still enjoying our little tale.
We disabled the comments at the beginning of Book Five due to the perhaps incendiary nature of the book's subject matter. It was largely in response to what I felt was overly misogynistic reaction by some (it only takes a few) to the not-at-all incendiary subject matter in Book Four. Many women (and a few men, including myself) felt very uncomfortable with the flavour of comments, and it seemed like the best way to keep the comic a safe space without spending hours a day policing the comments.
Discussion still happens from time to time on our Facecult page and on The Tweety (links on the right near the bottom) and you can also email me any time (Contact link at the left.) Thanks again for coming back, and for the very kind words.
