:star: UPDATE November 21 :star: Congratulations guys!! Carciphona is now #9 on TopWebComics, which means I will be posting 1 page everyday for all of December! I didn't think you could do it but you all proved me wrong ;-; Please keep on voting to keep CP up there on the ranks so more readers can find us. A second of your day in a combined effort makes a huge difference in helping CP grow ^^

And just a reminder that there are less than 2 weeks left in the preorder event of volume 3! Preorder your items before November 30 for great discounts, and timely delivery in time for Christmas ^^ Thank you guys so much for your continued support, I wouldn't be here without you :heart:

Veloce, Weirin, and Keritzel thought the city of Arenscura would be a temporary refuge, only to find the city tangled in its own troubles. Meron's allegiance is questioned when she consorts with the criminal Enfelid tribe warring against Arenscura. Amidst the conflict, they discover the true depth of the crisis before them: knots, bonds, and grudges rooted deeply in time.

Features:
  • 160 pages of story (Chapters 7-9, ahead of online posting schedule)
  • 10 pages of exclusive background story!
  • personally signed by me

All manga books are 30% off during preorder month! Just use the coupon code: CP3SPECIAL on checkout :D

Holiday Sale of November!


2 new items are also released for preorder in November:
  • Holiday card with handwritten custom message
  • Necklace based on Veloce's necklace design!
Bundles are available at up to $25 off regular price! Greeting card will have limited stock after preorder is over, and will be gone forever 2 weeks before Christmas.

BONUS: Carciphona reader challenge


If you are a reader for Carciphona, I have a challenge for you!
I participate in online voting sites such as TopWebComics, albeit not very actively. My comic ranks around 50-70 on the site which does not help bring in new readers very much.</p>

My challenge for you is to help vote for me to bring Carciphona higher in the charts to unlock more pages for posting! You can vote once everyday through the vote link at Carciphona.com. The rewards?

  • If Carciphona ranks #30 or less, December will be another double update month!
  • If carciphona ranks #10 or less, I will post ONE PAGE EVERY SINGLE DAY for ALL OF DECEMBER.
Sounds like a good reward for helping Carciphona grow? I hope so! :D No purchase required, just spread the word and help Carciphona reach more people who might enjoy it (: Thanks so much for your continued support, I hope you will all continue to enjoy the story!

I was just browsing your shop, and I remember that a while back you used to sell posters of your prints, and now I can't find them.
Do you still sell artwork prints?
Really looking forward to buying your latest book! :)

shilin Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
I don't sell prints at my shop anymore because there weren't much interest for the amount of communication effort I had to put in with a friend who has to ship the posters for me. I use DA only now to sell prints ^^

Ahhh, I wish I could get all your works, but I'm slightly lacking in funds =( But I might just have to buy Veloce's pendant 'cause it just looks so gorgeous :heart:___:heart:. Though I am a bit curious as to the 'keep away from moisture' part ._.;;

I don't wear much jewelry myself, so I wasn't aware that some people wear theirs 24/7 and never take it off, even in showers or rain or intense exercise. This necklace can't withstand that kind of prolonged exposure to water, that's what the note meant.

I'd really love to order but I kind of hate that I have to transfer money to my paypal (which will take a week apparently and I don't even know how) in order to purchase from storeenvy. Do not have that kind of patience =(
