Toadmila is One Year Old Today

One year ago, on a Friday, I posted the first chapter of Toadmila's adventures. For the first month, the blog had no visitors at all. But by now, one year later, it has reached 3,673 page views. We've come a long way, Toadmila and I, and I hope we can continue to grow.

I want to thank you all for giving me the motivation to keep writing. I know I've missed a few deadlines, and I've been on hiatus a few times, and I apologize for that.

I want to celebrate this moment by looking back at the milestones I've reached in the past year:

  • 36 chapters posted so far
  • volume 1 completed and self-published as a paperback
  • volume 1 listed on Goodreads. If you've read that far, you can now add it to your "Read" shelf on Goodreads and it will count towards your reading challenge
  • posting on Tapas, begun in August 2017, with chapters now being posted almost simultaneous here and on Tapas
  • the illustration for the cover of volume 1 is available as a print on DeviantArt, with several types of art gifts enabled

And here's what you can expect from Toadmila in 2018:

  • volume 2 will most likely be longer and more complex than volume 1, and revolving around 3 special characters that are yet to make an entrance
  • a different illustration for the cover of volume 2, featuring a character that's yet to be revealed
  • more merchandise... I mean more illustrations, on DeviantArt and elsewhere
  • weekly updates, unless something really bad happens (I have a buffer! A real, actual, nice and shiny buffer!)
Thank you, everyone, for reading, and I hope you'll stick around for the ride.
