      Hey Alex! I want to say soon, but it depends on how much the artist can handle at the moment, as she's finishing up her last semester at school. We're close though, a lot of good work has already been done on Issue 3. We're sorry it's going so slow, but once it makes it here... it's going to be well worth it (I believe that!).

      I was wondering when the kickstarter for the next book will be up?

    3. Vera Greentea 11-time creator on

      Aw, each and everyone of you rocks! Thanks!

      I got my books today and they are absolutely stunning. Gorgeous art and wonderful storytelling. I'm so excited to know what happens next! :)

    5. Eiji Anthony on

      @Alex, I agree, that's a great idea.

    6. Eiji Anthony on

      Perfectly brilliant. I cannot get enough of these wonderful cookies! Enchanting storytelling and whimsical art, I look forward to what happens next!

      Sweet!!!!
      God job everyone :)

      It's a fantastic idea, Alex, and I have been considering what I can do with the recipes. Maybe a book will be a fun way to exhibit all of the recipes, once I have enough written down... if that's a thing people want to see, I'd do it. Thanks for the thought!

      I just finished the 2nd issue and it got me to thinking. Is there any way that you can either post actual recipes for what she makes, or make a kickstarter for funding a recipes for the dead cookbook.

    11. Vera Greentea 11-time creator on

      Thanks so much, Buemba! Keep a look out, and hopefully there will be!

    12. Buemba on

      Just finished reading the 2nd issue and it's pretty awesome.

      Only problem is that now I regret not getting the signed physical copy of it (Along with the first issue). Hopefully if you Kickstart issue 3 it'll have a similar bundle to the $18.00 one offered here.

      Aw, Sian, I definitely am inspired to cook as well! It's my second favorite thing to do (after writing/making comics!)
      And thanks so much, Ricky!

    14. Sighn on

      WOW, got the email and positively ate the book with my eyes. Amazing work and can't wait to the copy in my hands. Very much inspiring me to cook. I hope very much that you will keep doing more and that I may back more of your projects.

    15. Ricky Cox on

      Looks amazing, nice work.

    16. Vera Greentea 11-time creator on

      And thanks everyone for your kind words! I'm really pleased with how beautiful the pages are turning out to be - you won't be sorry for waiting, I promise!

    17. Vera Greentea 11-time creator on

      Hi Aeyt! Yes, we're a bit behind schedule, so it might be a few weeks yet. But keep checking back for updates, I will keep you all in the process as much as I can!

      I'm just wondering when we might be getting our survey. I'm stocked for this. I can't wait to get it.

    19. Vera Greentea 11-time creator on

      I sure am :) thanks, Zon

      Not my first pledge, and sad (but relieved) to see my first was made after your first kickstarter ended. Hours left, and I'm struggling between my desire to be more involved (superficial as monetary means are) and my desire to repair my savings account.

    27. Vera Greentea 11-time creator on

      Hi Zon! I am not, I'm just the writer - but both Ein and Allison are! Ein goes by einlee and Allison goes by shirotsuki on there. Definitely check them out if you get the chance, there is so much beautiful art by both of them.

    28. Zon Petilla on

      Hey, I think I saw your work on DeviantArt a long time ago. Are you on DA?

    29. Vera Greentea 11-time creator on

      @Travis it's not a bad idea - if I could just figure how to mail food cost and time effectively. Maybe one day, but for now I'll happily give cookies away for free :P

      See now you should have added a dozen cookies or something as a reward. Made me hungry with that last update. :)

      Ah, I must've missed it! Good thing I pledged extra anyway :)

    32. Vera Greentea 11-time creator on

      @Helen I suggested the international fee of $4 so you'll definitely have access to anything you want :) Thanks so much and I hope you enjoy!!

      I couldn't see an international shipping fee, and hope you can send them out. Regardless, it's a pleasure to back this project! Even if I can only have access to the pdfs, I'm really looking forward to this :)

    34. Vera Greentea 11-time creator on

      Thanks @Kim! I'm really flattered to get this kind of comment!! xoxo

      Kim Tyler on

      You're my first pledge too. :) Can't wait to read both issues. The art looks amazing!

    36. Vera Greentea 11-time creator on

      @Evan That is just super sweet, I hope you enjoy your first kickstarter experience <3

    37. Vera Greentea 11-time creator on

      @Sebastian (Totally hear you about that edit button!) The existence of kickstarter is certainly a deus ex machina for people like me, but also the wonderful art-loving community that make it easy for something like kickstarter to exist. Thanks!! xoxo

    38. Vera Greentea 11-time creator on

      @Avigail Thanks so much, I can't believe it myself but very happy that you're part of the experience!

    39. Avigayil on

      Enjoyed reading issue 1, and I am looking forward to issue 2. The artwork in your video certainly is worthy of the success you are experiencing. Glad to be supporting your project. :-)

    40. Sebastian S. on

      Be part of its history, comments need an edit button so badly :P

    41. Sebastian S. on

      You two are what remind many of us why kickstarter has become so popular, real talent just needing a little push to make it. Keep up the great work, I for one was happily surprised by RftD and glad to be part of the history.

    42. Evan Bujold on

      You're my first pledge :D I look forward to reading some RftD :)

    43. Vera Greentea 11-time creator on

      Wow, @Jette, you are a wonderful person joining on RftD's account!! The first PDF is in the very first post, I hope you enjoy. Thanks so much, your comment definitely made my day!

    44. Jette on

      Joined Kickstarter because of this; who in their right mind wouldn't support something like this!? Can't wait to read the PDFs!!!!

    45. Vera Greentea 11-time creator on

      @antoanLee :)

    46. Vera Greentea 11-time creator on

      It's great, @Ryan, that Womanthology project is amazing and I'm really loving the popularity it's getting - and when some of you guys find your way over to me, well that's just extra wonderful :) Thanks for checking RftD out!

    47. Ryan Kimber on

      I was linked over to KickStarter today for Womanthology and after pledging for that I came across your project. I was immediately drawn in by the Art and I am looking forward to getting both issues. Now I just have to try and keep myself from reading the PDF for the first one so I can read both when they come. :)

    48. Vera Greentea 11-time creator on

      :) Thanks, Ray!!

    49. Ray B. on

      The artwork looks really good. I can't wait to see the comic.
