Dear Readers, you asked and asked and asked and I resisted and resisted, but you were right. It’s time for a PRINT EDITION of Act One

The first volume of Beauty and The Beast is scheduled to premier at TCAF this May. It will contain the prologue and the first five chapters of the web serial.

If you would like to preorder a copy, you can do so HERE. When you order, indicate if you’d like the book shipped, or if you would like to pick it up at TCAF.

Because of the tight schedule, I won’t be running a kick-starter, but that makes your pre-order even more important! Preorders give me a better idea of how many books to have printed, and they guarantee that I don’t sell out before you can get your copy!

So why do you want the print edition when you can read it online?

- over 160 pages of fairy tale tension, all in one go

- revised and updated artwork, including full-page redraws

- bonus sections including concept art & liner notes

- preorders get a character sketch on the inside over, and some sweet loot to show my gratitude!

Don’t want to preorder, but want to help out? Check out my PATREON page, or visit the STORE!

Aaah I'm so excited!
You don't know how happy I am to see Beauty take Beast's hand.
Also, I will be sure to try and preorder a copy this weekend. :)

Dnnghh...ugnnhh...oh...God, all my feels!

They're all over the floor! There is no way I can put all these feels back inside me! Unnnghhhh!!!!

Also, that is a very lovely hand, and the composition of your pages is getting really strong.

O happy day!
Both because soon I will have a print edition of my very own and Beauty and the Beast are connecting in the present!

Yes, Beauty! Yes, yes, yes, that is exactly the right answer! *happy dance!*

Love this page!

And how long with pre-orders be open? I don't start work until next week, so it'll probably be a week after that before I can make an order.
MsMegan 14th Mar 2:03 PM, 2014
Hey Tev! They'll be up for the rest of the month! Congratulations on your new job!

WOW. TWO things I've been wishing for all in one day!?

Beauty reaching out to Beast AND a print version! I can't believe it!

I already pre-ordered, this is such great news!

(I'm sorry if I'm gushing)

TolkienOverTwilight 17th Mar 11:39 PM, 2014
Lol thanks!
I'm quite attached to it.
And I totally agree about the feels. It's just... my childhood self is exited, my adult self appreciates all the delicate storytelling... it's just amazing.

While I am deeply satisfied with the emotions portrayed in these last few pages can I just say... YAY! Print Edition! Bought and paid for and I can't wait to get it!

Oh wow, I never expected that response from Beauty. This is getting good.

Those. Hands. Oh. My. Giddy. Aunt.

You have a new fan... It's me ;)
Beauty and the Beast is my favorite evvvvvveeeeerrrrr (sorry, I need to adjust the settings on my twee squee filter...) this is awesome!
I'm just about to launch a webcomic (or ten...) myself. B&tB is a theme in mine, but fortunately I'm not doing a straight up retelling like this or I'd figure all the good stuff had been said here :) though, there's one scene that did come close to one I had in mind. Hm. That poses a bit of a problem for me eventually.

I can hardly wait for the Beast's reaction to this - he's been rather prickly recently and *I* think it's because he's developing a crush on Beauty, plus - is this the first time she has touched him at all? I believe so.
MsMegan 17th Mar 10:42 PM, 2014
Yay, new readers! Direct us to your comic when it launches!

Yes, this is the very first time they've had any sort of physical contact...and Beauty's initiating it. I hope the poor fellow doesn't keel over in in shock.
AbigailBrooks 17th May 2:33 AM, 2014
DAWWWWWWWWWW! (Makes excited squeeing noise.) Her noticing how upset he is, her getting up to hold his hand, his shocked look in response (how long has it been since someone held his hand like that?) - it's so sweet!
