I just put the final part of Carnivale up on Tabulit. The story was first serialized on-line years ago, but I don’t think I put up the final ending that time and this version has ink wash tones instead of flat grays. So you can now read the whole definitive version. Let me know what you think.
I started serializing Carnivale: a Kit Kaleidoscope Story over at Tabulit awhile ago. Since then, Tabulit has undergone some changes and lost some people. So now I’m in charge of uploading my own pages. And I’ve done so today. Tabulit used to be a pay site, but now it just asks you to help sponsor the site and its creators.
Now the second edition of Carnivale is not only available in print, but also in pdf format. You can get either version through Gumroad. The print edition is nice (and I prefer print personally), but the pdf is cheaper. $9.99 versus $19.95.
Now that Gumroad allows selling physical products, I’m doing everything through it to simplify things. I’ve added the appropriate links on the books page. You can also see everything I have for sale on Gumroad here: https://gumroad.com/nijomu
Straight from the printer today, the new second editions of Carnivale are here!
The changes from the previous edition are slight, but make it a better looking book. One, it’s bigger: 6×9 versus 5×8. The images fill out the pages more (I’m learning about book layout). And it finally has a spine. The difference that took a long time, though hardly anyone will notice, is that I swapped out the flat tones with scanned ink washes. It just gives the images a bit more texture. I was toying with this idea a long time ago and people advised me not to do it. But, slowly in spare moments, I did it anyway. I like the way it looks, even if it’s subtle.
I’m taking the new editions to the APE, but they’ll also be available to buy from me here. Click on “Books” above.
