I disappeared from deviantART again. You might have noticed, especially those of you who have been following me for a while, that this happens every so often. You see, the thing is, sometimes I just become suddenly and inexplicably unhappy. No ryhme or reason, no prompting of any sort, it just happens. I call them Life Slumps. And when in the throes of a Life Slump I just become really sad and apathetic. What's really frustrating though is that I know
that there's no reason to be unhappy but I still can't snap myself out of the funk. And even if I want
to do something I find myself unable to do it. It's like there's some weird mental block. It's annoying and debilitating. And that's the reason I sometimes disappear for a little bit.
It might sound slightly dramatic but my Life Slumps end eventually and then things go back to normal.
It's also not something I necessarily feel like I need to share but I thought I ought to give you an explanation for why I'm sometimes inactive for a couple of weeks. With more and more watchers I feel I have more and more responsibility to be here and I want to give you a heads up for if/when it happens again. Just so you don't think I've run off or anything.
So, yes. That happened. But the Life Slump is over now and I'm back. I bring with me all kinds of updates and news and things so please get comfy 'cause this my take a while!
All Things Gasara Artbook Pre-Order
Huge, huge thanks to everyone who has pre-ordered my artbook so far! I can't even begin to tell you how much it means to me.
I can now confirm that the pre-order will end on Sunday 24th November
. There'll only be a very limited amount, a handful maybe, available afterwards for general sale. A second print run might be possible in the future but I can't say for sure.
The books are still on schedule to be released at the end of Novemeber and should, postal services permitting, be with you a week or two after that.

And In Other News...
I am currently enjoying the Grand Slam of Darts. I know there might only be one or two people out there who shares my enjoyment of darts but I always feel the need to express my love for it. However, everytime I cheer on my favourite dart players they always lose so I'm not mentioning any names tonight. I'm just going to leave here with a hearty 'C'mon!'.
And a 'love you'.
Thank you for sticking with me, my lovelies ♥
