Publishing dates and times

Status

Hi! If you are curious, the dates and times I give here on “The Gnome Tapestry” are in the Pacific Time Zone… currently Pacific Daylight Time during the Summer (and part of the Fall and Spring) and Pacific Standard time the rest of the year.

Lately I’ve published Saturday and Sunday at 12PM (Noon) after a switch from 3PM. I make occasional posts like this at other times and dates.

Thanks for dropping by!

Oh, That Yellow Brick Road! — The Gnomestead Tapestry

A Gnomestead Tapestry Short, looking forward to Summer:

Once again Sir Biff is the central character. People in the South Cringle Archduchies suspect perhaps his helmet is too tightly padded.

I hope you enjoy this and share it around!

Thanks!

Go Ask Alice! — The Gnomestead Tapestry

A Gnomestead Tapestry Short, just in time for Easter:

Go Ask Alice!

I’m trying a bit of a different format for The Gnomestead Tapestry shorts. For now the longer stories will still be coming out with the wide panel format. I hope you have been enjoying the long Easter weekend and that the weather is nice for you.

I hope you enjoy this and share it around!

Direction for the site.

On the BallHowdy! This is a bit of a departure from the standard instalment to the site. So far I have posted a strip or part of a strip a day. It would be nice to keep this up, however there’s no way I could keep up that schedule of creation.

So far I have used past material as well as current to post here from the Gnome Tapestry collection: “The Wheel Tales of Willow City”, “The Gnomestead Tapestries”, and now “Space Trek”. I’ll be running out of material very quickly at this rate and I decided that to cut the length of “dry spells” I’d slow down publication to 4 times a week in general.

Currently the plan is for Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday with of course room for change and room to publish extra material. I can’t say which of those days will have absolutely new, unpublished material, but I shall try to have as much of that as possible in addition to publishing the past material here. The past material being material that may have been published elsewhere, but not here.

I hope that you enjoy the cartoon strips and really hope you share the links to them around so that others can as well. I can share it with my circles of direct connections, but I need other people to share as well, just to have an audience.

Thanks for reading this non-cartoon posting.

Look for part 5, the conclusion, tomorrow!

I hope you enjoy this and share it around!
