Happy September, Sparkler fans! Our schedule is to update on the first Monday of the month, and conveniently, this time around the first Monday is also the first day of the month! So don’t forget to pay your rent, and then go read some great new stuff from our fine creators!  

Alas, this month brings Awake to a close, with an emotional finale and the prime spot on our cover. It’s been an amazing run with our first original audio drama, and we’re so proud of Rebecca and all the hard work that the cast has done to bring this story to life. Good job, everyone! And if you haven’t checked the series out yet, now’s a great time! 

Meanwhile, there are desperate make-outs going on in Dusk in Kalevia, mysterious strangers in Gatesmith, important secrets in Windrose, and inspiration and tragedy strike almost simultaneously in Skyglass

All chapters are up and available now for Sparkler members (and remember, VIP members can download the entire series so far!), but the paywall drops next week if you’re following us for free. 

Enjoy!!

robofeather asked: Whenever you design new, original outfits, they always look so cool! What's your process for creating clothes? Do you have any specific things you reference or draw inspiration from?

I hope you don’t mind me answering this publicly, but it’s going to be image heavy and maybe others find it interesting as well!

This is great stuff. :-) Compile a folder of art reference for yourself, and refer to them frequently!

Reference? I dunno, I just thought this was lovely and wanted to share. Those peplum suits are killin’ it. 

And I think it’s funny that I’m reblogging this from Newsweek’s tumblr. :-) (they run a good tumblr!)
