Carciphona

Carciphona is my original manga series. It is available to read for free online and updates weekly on carciphona.com, and is published by myself in print whenever I finish a new book. Most of the artworks I do are for this series. Please check it out and if you enjoyed it, share it with your friends and those who may be interested! Thank you for all your support ^^

I finally got the fourth volume of Carciphona in the mail (shoved it in my sister's face and was like "lookie what I got from Canada!") and I LOVE the colored pages (and every Blackbird moment) and realized it's incredibly thinner than the previous ones (just by putting the books side by side on my shelf). I'm not complaining, I'm just curious I swear. Just wanna know if it was intentionally made thinner.
Also another questionyay for naggy questions: do you take donations?

yay!! I'm glad you enjoyed it :D It wasn't intentionally thinner, I honestly tried really hard to make it as thick as the other books for consistency's sake but that was just how long the book ended up to be with the right pacing ;-;

I do recently take donations now in the form of patreon pledges, you can see it here: patreon.com/carciphona You can cancel your pledge after the first month has been charged to enjoy any pledge benefits you can receive for that month. If you don't care for the benefits, you can just send money to my paypal at shilin at ashen - ray dot com if you would like to donate! Thank you for considering that even after buying the book!

Well that answers that.  

And think nothing of it. I'd give you everything in my bank account if it meant seeing more of your work, but ya know, us college folks be broke. Still managed to keep money aside for your book and always will unless the apocalypse happens. It's hands down one of the best mangas I have come across. Even the "popular" mangas don't have the high quality and depth you comic does so....it's a nice break from the generic. 
And I'm not familiar with Patreon and its security. I have to get the money in my PayPal account...goddammit. *sigh* makes a memo so that the next time I ask a question like that I have money ready to send same day Honestly did no think you'd reply that quickly considering how late it is....or is it just late for me....ya know what I do hope you have a pleasent evening. I'm off to bed before I stick my foot in my mouth anymore.

Cheers~

I was just looking at the name Veloce and then I taught.. oh wait I am totally wrong with thinking that it should sound like Vel-o-ace.. xD this is how I taught it was but I think that's not how you pronounce it.

So my question is.. how do you pronounce your stunning characters name :D
