Just this past Thursday Carson Fire posted a message on his website:
I need some suggestions… where do I find the art collectors? We’ve sold one piece from the gallery, but we have to sell even more.
If we don’t start seeing a bit more activity, some more nibbles, suggestions, something, I’m afraid I’m going to have to make myself be mean, and start taking whole blocks of the Elf Life archive back offline.
Fire has been setting deadlines for sales of original Elf Life art right on through this weekend with portions of the Elf Life archives removed from public access when those deadlines are not hit. Fire is upping the ante with some hints about the next phase of Elf Life (which apparently will only happen if he hits his fundraising goals).
If I need to be this aggressive to sell art and save the series, then aggressive I shall be. I’ve already started mapping out “Elf Life phase 2”, which will be a continuation of the series, but *after* the wedding, since the wedding has me mired in an epic with no visible means of support.
The next phase of Elf Life will be called something completely different, and will put more emphasis on the relationship between Glee and Filis, and Thea’s training for battling the younger Sea Naga. It will not be a mystery about the past, as most of Elf Life has been, but a straight adventure that finds the strongest women of Elf Life on the road, doing battle with the world.
That means a more exciting, faster-paced, and dareIsayit sexier Elf Life than ever before.
Although there are no deadlines for today, Fire did updates his site with news that he is halfway to his goal.
