Alrighty then, umm... We've been sort of radio silent because we've been totally distracted with the fact that I (Autumn) got pregnant, had a baby, and have been settling into raising another child for the first time in almost a decade. :P

We're working on an animated short with Stan Lee's 'The Awesome Team'--animators of 'The X-Men' from the 90's. The popular SatAM had some really good art work, and so far, The Awesome Team hasn't disapointed. Can't wait to see what the final outcome looks like!

BTW, our daughter's name is Matilda, and she's loverly. <3

This Ren Faire has been a lot of fun, and it's not over yet! Check us out on the 11th for lots more cosplay action! See Tessandra leading young Madelyn, Shane and Mairtin around the faire as they imbibe in alcohol for the first time and enjoy the sights and sounds of Highlander week! Be there and get a coupon for the next book!

All of our wonderous new pictures of Mairtin, Madelyn, Edna, Timothy, and even the goblin king Jareth and king of the elves and so much more will be posted next week!

Movin' on up?

So much is happening... Tales of Atonement will soon be animated! Well, in part. :3

We're getting ready to run a campaign where we make small snippets of animated works to publicize the book series. We'll be working with Marvel Comics' The Awesome Team, and possibly one other, and use them to try and get the attention of networks like Disney, Nickelodeon, and others. With any luck, this will be a move in the right direction. <3

Updates lala~

Heavily considering leaving Xlibris. In my opinion, they not only don't listen, but just flat out don't do that much aside from put the books onto paper. For the price they charge, that isn't much.


We're looking into traditional publishing, now that we have a full book to offer. The hardest part now is simply to just get they to stop printing the book, and give us a partial refund (A.K.A. get the books quick before it might be another year or two before you can!) So many people loved the first book who read it, but we need more people to read it! :3


That's it for now. Auty-sama

The Princess Bride...is awesome

I updated the image on the front page to the actual book one cover. Inspired by the infamous scene from The Princess Bride, we thought it would be a reminding blast from the past. Also, we thought it would be more fun to have all of the books have a colored cover. Book one here is Orange. Look out for book two in purple, and book three--we're thinking yellow and brown. :3

Keepin' it real. Auty-sama out.

tMaH is now up for purchase on Barns and Nobles.com. I know some of you have been waiting for it, so I hope it's to your standards. <3


Also, we've begun working on both book two and book three. We're a little sketchy on the names still, but we're thinking of calling them 'Chaos' and 'In the beginning'. Too much?


Remember: never text and drive, Kiddies!



Baby got back

Some good updates to be known. :3 We now have control of ToAtoneArt again. Yay~! Also, MA-Moreland is a go with one preview of To make a hero up so far. We may be adding another preview or two of TMaH, but we'll definitely be adding ones of the other books as well.


We're also slowly stepping along with the comic book. Azixel is working hard, asking lost of questions, and over all being an awesome experience for us to work with. ;3


That's it for now. Remember to spay and neuter your pets.


Stuff hit the fan

Posted by AutyToAtoneART on June 22, 2014 at 11:55 AM Comments comments (0)

Okay, so... Some stuff hit the fan this month. I've lost control of my account ToAtoneART on www.deviantart.com (hopefully temporarily and no--I didn't lose it because I did anything wrong, which is why it's still active), and I've completely lost touch with our artist for the comic book. I don't remember their name at all (something starting with an 'A', and they were offering manga commissions...), so it makes it difficult.


In other news, we've moved to a new account-- MA-Moreland. I'm trying to look at it in a positive light. No more left overs from when it was The Auty-sama's personal account. It's going to be completely all about our works. Not just Tales of Atonement, but eventually our other works; but more on that much later. For now, Tales of Atonement is our focus. With that, we've recently uploaded a snippet from the first book. We'll be offering more of those, but it'll hopefully get you interested in reading more, and eventually wanting to read the whole book.


Also, book one is hitting a few speed bumps, and obviously wasn't out by the end of May. It won't be out by the end of June, either. Hell; I doubt it'll be out by the end of July. And the promotions cost is so out of my hands... We're working our hardest to get a Kickstarter started. I can only hope you guys are willing to help us out a little bit...


Well, that's your update. New headquarters account page, speed bumps with book one publication and the comic book, but new segments of the book and what not... All in all, a bunch of bad news, but we'll get through it. :


This is Auty-sama signing off.

Working harder

Some of our fans have been complaining. Not about the story itself, but that they keep hearing about how 'cool' and 'good' the book is, but they 'don't read'. Well, as much as we'd love for all of our fans, and even people in general to find it in themselves to be able to pick up not only our book, but books in general, we completely understand it not being an interest, or not being exactly able to sit down and read a several chapter novel. Which got us thinking...


We're looking into actually making a comic book of the book! Many of you have already shared your liking of that idea, so we can only hope you'll be able to follow us in graphic form. :3
