Weaponry - Call of the Siren ~ 12
My mum's Celebration of Life was yesterday, so this page is up later than usual.

And I hope you've been following the Inktober artwork on Patreon. We're now over halfway through the month's prompts.

Thank you for reading!

I'm really happy with how this one came out, so I thought I'd share it with all of my Patrons, not just the higher paying tiers. This is Nimue, Siren's second-in-command. She, like all the Sea Witches, also possesses magic. Nimue's skill is that she can breathe underwater, which is very handy when you're at sea all of the time. 

A fun fact, Nimue is also named after one of our readers! <3

You can read the weaponry comic here: smackjeeves.com/weaponry
or here on DevianART: www.deviantart.com/notificatio…

If you'd like to see more of the artwork I've been doing for Inktober, please consider pitching in $2 to my Patreon: www.patreon.com/astra

Thank you!

Weaponry - Call of the Siren ~ 11
Well, yesterday was my birthday; I am now 33! Crazy how time flies. For those who have been following my on social media, you may have seen the poncy pictures of my Scarlet Pimpernel costume party. It was a blast!

And for those following my Patreon, you'll have noticed this month (Inktober), those who donate $2 will get access to an extra 31 character drawings! I hope that a few of you might consider pitching in $2 to the worthy cause of supplying me in new art pens so I can continue bringing you Weaponry arts.

Thank you for reading!

Weaponry - Call of the Siren ~ 10
As Trebuchet noted during Arrow's interview to join Weaponry Academy, Arrow is nothing if not direct with his observations. He certainly will not play Siren's games, and she's not used to that.

Also as a note for all my Patrons: It is Inktober, and for the first year ever, I'm going to try my hand at it for Weaponry-themed illustrations. The Inktober prompts this year just seemed SO appropriate for piratey scribblings. For anyone who gives $2 or more a month, I'll post these up each day. I hope that 31 bonus illustrations is worth the $2 price point. :) I hope you enjoy them!

Thank you for reading!

Weaponry - Call of the Siren ~ 9
Aaand the moment Siren realizes that maybe picking the greenest pirate in Weaponry Academy was probably not the best choice, after all...

Arrow is not remotely bent by her wiles, and that's a new thing for Siren to face. If nothing else confirmed his very homosexual nature, her magic not swaying him is the final nail in that coffin.

Hello, hello, hello!

After a mad-cap pace and gruelling schedule, which may have permanently bloodshot my eyes I am happy to report:

Legend of the Quill is ready for print!

For those of you who read First Born, this is the next book in the Ul-Zaorith world, and the start of an epic high fantasy trilogy!

The book clocks in at just over 440 pages, and is illustrated by yours truly. It will be released at this time only in soft cover. The selling price is only $25 and you can pre-order your copy here: www.astracrompton.com/legendof…

If you're outside of the Victoria area and would still like to order a copy, please send me a message and I can get a shipping estimate for you. I will be basing my initial order numbers off of the Pre-Order interest, so if you want one, now is the time to get in on this great deal! I'll be signing and doing a sketch in each copy for the Pre-Order, and you'll get a limited edition bookmark to go along with it, so please do order a copy!

For those who aren't familiar with Quill:
This is an epic high fantasy, in the tradition of saga stories. If you like books like The Malazan Book of the Fallen, or Lord of the Rings, or The Eternal Champion, you will probably like my book. It does contain some scenes that may be too graphic for young or sensitive readers. Buckle in for magic, sword fights, ancient prophecies and mischievous Demons -- all set in a unique and fresh setting with new races and cultures for you to explore. I've spent 15 years building this world, with history, languages, maps, flora, fauna, gods and magics, so I truly hope you'll take a chance on me and read The Prophet's Tale, Book One: Legend of the Quill.

History records that, just days from now, a tremendous upheaval took place as the ground cracked and broke apart, tornadoes spun counter to their nature, and even Godzilla bowed as you appeared upon the Earth to grace us with your art. And so it is wished upon you to have a Happy Birthday on that day....and a most excellent cake. :D (Big Grin)  Have your cake and eat it too
