This isn't an easy choice to make, BUT....

So, probably a lot of you don't even know this unless you follow my personal blogs, but I am presently 7 months pregnant, and the exhaustion has finally caught up to me in a way that I can't really ignore it. My maternity leave starts at my day job in less than a month, but I think I need to just take a full on break, including my comic work, for a while.

I'm unsure how long of a break I'll be taking, and I will probably work out a mailing list? Or something? So, as soon as I'm back into the swing of things, you will all know. This isn't a decision I make easily, after all, this is Under the Dead Skies' 5th year and I still have so much more story and so many more heartstrings to tug, so don't think I will give up on this project too easily <3

For those on my Patreon, I will still be making updates as I'm able to make them! Your guys' content will be even more exclusive now, and when I come back I'll have a good buffer, so hopefully I won't need to miss an update again for a looooong time.

If you want to keep up with my goings on, I'll still be on Tumblr and Twitter fairly regularly (@moonjellybeans on both). I still have zine submissions I owe, and those will be finished by their deadlines <3

You guys are all amazing and I can't tell you how much your continued support means to me~ Thank you so much for sticking with me during this spotty year, and I WILL be back as soon as I am able to keep a regular schedule again!

Good luck with the little one, UtDS will still be on my check list so take as long as you need. Babies are exhausting, both before and after they come screaming into your life, stealing both your energy and your heart, so take care of yourself.

@Ara: Thank you so much! It's our first child, so both the hubby and I are very excited, but we're also realistic about how draining it's going to be XD

Ahh!! I'm so happy for you. It will probably be exhausting afterwards too, so take the time you need. :))

Baby on board
How's the mother thing going?

@Akumetsu: Both easier and harder than I thought it was going to be~ She's been affectionately referred to as "The Yam" since she was born (Oct. 25th)!

She's 4 months old now and just learning how to roll over!
