Hello BARKING supporters!
Just a quick message to say although things are quiet they are no less busy. Unbound are still hard at work behind the scenes working to get BARKING out to you as soon as they can. Thank you for your patience and support of this project that I feel may end up being even more relevant next year.
Although the books are yet to arrive there is much interest in them and it's already received accolades. I've sent out 2 digital copies for reviews and both have returned with a wonderful gift of reviews and nominations. Firstly Pipedream Comics along with A Place To Hang Your Cape have selected BARKING as one of the Top 50 Indie Comics of the year! Then the very wonderful folk at Broken Frontier have nominated both my book and myself for Breakout Talent Category in this years BF Awards! I'm in amazing company with some incredible books and if you'd like to you can vote for me here at the Broken Frontier Awards 2019 (Not bad for a couple of PDFs!)
If you're keen to find out more about the project then I had a very frank and enjoyable chat with Dan Berry over on Make It Then Everbody Podcast on the how's and why's i made Barking. Dan is not only a brilliant podcaster but also an excellent comics creator, artist and maker. He not only designed the font for BARKING but made the dip pen I drew many of the scenes with! Listen to our discussion through the link above or check out Dan's wares at thingsbydan
I've also updated my website and shop (detail pics below) so if you missed out on some of the Unbound rewards they are there & ready to ship worldwide, although sadly too late for Christmas now but if you fancy some sweary zines on Feminism for 2020 then I've got you covered at lucysullivanuk.com
I hope to be in touch as soon I have news on the Hardbacks and I will be shouting it from the rooftops! Until then have a wonderful Festive Season, hug your loved ones, be kind to your neighbours in these challenging times and I will be back with you in the new decade, fresh for the good fight!
