--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Titty-Time" is the admittedly silly title of a series of light-hearted erotic comics I've been creating for the last few years, previously exclusive to Slipshine. In 2012, I kickstarted volume 1 successfully and ever since, fans have been asking about volume 2. After several more years of new content and hard lessons learned, I'm finally ready to take pre-orders and make Volume 2 a reality!

Slipshine retains exclusive digital rights to my comics, while I retain print-rights, which is why I am able to make my comics available as books!

As for myself, I'm a self-employed independent comic creator who just enjoys cute, fluffy porn that made me feel good as a queer, fat lady, so I started making erotic comics to cater to myself -- and it found a wider audience, it seems!

My comics have featured in 3 volumes of "Smut Peddler," "Broken Telephone" by Ryan Estrada, Book 1 of "Oh Joy Sex Toy," and my art has been featured in "The Stranger" publication and "The Sex & Pleasure Book: Good Vibrations Guide to Great Sex for Everyone." Full resume here: http://amandalafrenais.com/portfolio

 

 Volume 2 will be identical in size and page-count to Volume 1, and will collect 15 stories from my Slipshine archive, some of which will be edited from color to grayscale for the book -- a color edition may exist in the future, but for now that's out of the cards.

Among the stories included in the book will be:

  • A continuation of the "Dragons Prefer Princes" storyline featured in Vol 1
  • A human alternate-universe story featuring characters from my SFW webcomic, Love Me Nice
  • Fan favorites such as "Boneglasses" and "Space MILF and Space TWINK."

Not included in this volume is the "Miracle Knight Remix" storyline, as that ongoing series will be collected in a separate, smaller, more episodic printing.

Through Kickstarter I am taking pre-orders for the book in order to fund a 1,500 print run of Vol 2, in addition to a small restock of Vol 1.

Unlike previous Kickstarters, I will not be fulfilling the shipping myself, and will be outsourcing to a fulfillment service. As much as I love being an independent go-getter, I've had to learn my limits after exhausting myself. After getting the print quote, calculating shipping/fulfillment based on previous KS backer counts, etc, I know I need $10,500 minimum to get this book printed and shipped out. You can read the breakdown below:

Related to that, there is an extra $800 being included in these funds. My previous Kickstarter for my webcomic, Love Me Nice, was successfully funded and fulfillment 90% complete -- until international shipping prices increased and ate my shipping/fulfillment budget. I attempted to send the rest out of pocket, but there are still approx. 80 international backers I could not afford shipping for. So I've decided to lose the profits on about 30 Titty Time Vol 2 books in order to cover and fulfill that shipping, with the burden of selling those pre-orders on me. I am explaining this in detail for the sake of transparency.

The Kickstarter is a pre-order for the physical Titty-Time Volume 2 book, with reward add-ons existing as copies of other books of mine, such as Titty Time Volume 1.

Why no digital comic backer level?
Slipshine retains exclusive digital rights to my comics published through their website, and legally I am unable to offer a digital version of the book.

Why no stickers, pins, merchandise, etc as rewards?
I'm gonna be honest, the last year has been rough, and even though my last Kickstarters were successful and fulfilled, they took a lot out of me as the all-in-one artist, writer, editer, designer, accountant, and shipping department of my books, and this time around I do not think I can handle a complicated fulfillment -- it wouldn't be good for me, or my backers. Which is also why I'm using a fulfillment service.

What if the sparse rewards means you don't fund?
That is a risk I'm willing to take. If a Kickstarter doesn't fund, it's no-harm-no-foul: I don't take anyone's money, and no money is spent making the book. The goal of this Kickstarter is to print the book, and if pre-orders alone cannot fund it, maybe it just wasn't meant to be.

 Here are some SFW/censored page samples of what will be included in the book. (Note: several pages have been converted from color for this page and do not reflect how the conversion in the actual book will look)

Risks and challenges

All of the art for the comic has been drawn, and I have a good relationship with the printer I use, and after 2 other Kickstarters I've learned some hard lessons about how to make this work -- however, delays can always happen. Shipping can always complicate things, either with rate increases or delays on their end, though ideally the fulfillment company being used will help me avoid such hiccups. And even with a fulfillment service, I am at the end of the day a single person and something as simple as a broken leg could cause significant delays -- not likely, but worth being honest about.
