Prepare! For The Legend of Jamie Roberts, Volume 1 on KickStarter…

jamie roberts, a genderqueer human with messy blonde hair and green eyes, is gesturing with dreamy excitement against a brown background.

It’s that time – time for a new KickStarter campaign. And this time, I’m hoping to get The Legend of Jamie Roberts, volume 1 in paperback.


The Legend of Jamie Roberts is a weekly webcomic I write and illustrate. It’s all about Jamie – neither man or woman, but a PIRATE. Jamie and their two best friends, Thomas and Daniel, find an unfinished map for a land they never explored. And so together, they go on a new adventure!

Volume 1 will collect the first 4 chapters of the webcomic. Yeah, I know I had chapters 1 and 2 in single-issue comics before. And those had their own KickStarter campaigns. But volume 1 will be the first time the first 4 chapters of the story will be in print together.


Mark your calendars – the KickStarter will launch before the end of February.


If you want to be first in line to pre-order the book, you need to get on the email newsletter. My email peeps are the first to know when ANY KickStarter launches. That means they get to see the Early Access rewards, which are only available for a limited time.

Any questions? Hit me up in the comments below.

Commissions on Pause Until Jan 22

I had announced that commissions on Ko-Fi would re-open next week, but I must delay re-opening until January 22, 2021.

Why? Because I have a short story comic deadline coming soon. I want to make sure I get it done in time with as little pressure from outside projects as possible.

Once the comic is done, I’ll be available to work on commissions on Jan. 22.

Thank you for your understanding!

I’ll Be Back January 4, 2021

“Kelci! You didn’t send an email update last week! What gives?”

Last week was Christmas, silly. I took the week off.

Also – I’m taking THIS week off.

“But what does that mean?!”

That means:

  • no posts on Ko-Fi, this blog, OR social media until January 4, 2021.
  • no new pages of The Legend of Jamie Roberts until January 6, 2021.
  • no email newsletter until January 8, 2021.
  • commissions will remain CLOSED until January 11, 2021.

The Storenvy shop (for physical goods) and Ko-Fi shop (for digital goods) will remain open. BE WARNED: there may be delays if you purchase from Storenvy, because plague and backed-up USPS shenanigans.

And another thing:

Every year, I talk about the previous year in review, followed by the goals I have for the following year. I DO still intend on writing those blog posts. They just won’t be live until January 7, 2021.

I’m going to enjoy the time I have off. I hope you’re able to rest and recharge for 2021. May it not suck!

Thank you for your understanding.

A New Horror Story Collection?

You read right – Fantasyville Productions (the company I run) is working on a new horror short story collection.

My good friend Sean McGavin wrote these stories last year, and I said to him, “Holy banana pants! These stories are good! Let’s get these printed!”

Couple things:

  1. I had never printed a book of prose before. And it turns out – the self-publishing world of prose? VERY different from comics. Because,
  2. It’s tricky to find printers for these kinds of books who are NOT Amazon. And
  3. It’s expensive to hire an editor.

I’m handling the book cover design because I designed all the covers for my books. It’s one of the skills I’m really good at, to be honest.

For an editor, I hired Melanie D., a friend of mine from college who’s very good at what she does. Shout-out to my readers who backed The Case of the Wendigo on KickStarter. They voted to have the leftover funds from that campaign go towards paying Melanie to edit this anthology. (And also go towards two different charities. More info about that can be found in this KickStarter post).

Where will this book be printed? Well, I’m going for Lulu. Unless you have a different recommendation. But when I did my research, Lulu had what I was looking for. (And I’ll go into THAT in a different post).

When will this book be available? Stay tuned on my email newsletter for updates.

Sorry to cut it short, but that’s really all I have for now. Thank you for reading!
