Whew guys. 2017 has been quite a year. Both I and my family have had some challenging and even heart-breaking experiences. But there have also been moments of fun and laughter and joy. One things for certain though: it's been exhausting! Consequently, there have been a few times this year when the main story was put on hold. While I try to keep these interruptions to a bare minimum, so many readers have expressed their understanding and encouragement during these times, and I'm very grateful for that.
In the near future, I'm going to need to take another break, just to make sure everything is on track and running smoothly, both with Aww, Feathers! as well as with my own life. (It's easy to let things fall through the cracks with so many things going on in real life.) But to fill that gap, I'm excited to announce our third guest comic event! To be honest, I'm not sure yet exactly when it will start, but it will probably be early 2018, so for now the soft deadline for submissions is January 15, 2018. That gives you a couple months at least to work on your submissions. Our first and second were both awesome! I'm looking forward to what our guest artists come up with this time... and also to the break! Seriously, every submission, no matter your style or skill level, will be a big help! All you need to do is follow the guidelines below. (Note, I am willing to be flexible on things like format and even page amount as long as you talk to me first. Just send me an email and we'll work something out.)

I must ask you all for patience. The past few weeks have been rather difficult on me and my family. Without going into too much detail, we're currently dealing with a sickness in the family that is quite serious, as well as the sickness of a beloved family pet. We'll be all right. Still, things have been rather emotionally draining lately. While trying to keep up on the work I need to do for Aww, Feathers! I finally decided I need a brief reprieve. So I'll be taking the next couple weeks off from updating the regular story. Much as I hate delaying the next chapter of the story, I feel this will be good for me and will allow me to more easily sort out some things in real life. In addition, there are things I still need to do in order to prepare for AWU, and I want to give myself adequate time to do them.
Not to worry; I won't leave you without anything in the meantime. I've whipped up something I hope you'll find at least somewhat amusing. Have you ever seen someone try to tell an entire story using only emoji? This isn't quite that extreme. But I've redone the previous chapter, replacing all the dialogue with emoji, to see how clearly they could communicate what's going on, haha! I hope you enjoy it at least a little. It was kind of a fun exercise. Check back Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday for the next two weeks.
Thank you for understanding. This summer has been rough. But we're going to make it through.

I've had a few people ask if they could support Aww, Feathers! through PayPal instead of Patreon. I have no problem with that, so I decided to make it official.
If you would like to make a one-time donation, or just prefer to use PayPal over Patreon, you may do so at https://paypal.me/awwfeathers for whatever amount you choose. You will still receive the same rewards as if you had donated through Patreon, including exclusive content like sketches, WIPs, etc. during the month you donate. You won't be able to see them in the Patreon news feed, but they will be made available in an exclusive channel in the Aww, Feathers! Discord Server, which you can join here: https://discord.gg/ahcEP7M
Milestone rewards will continue to depend on total contributions received from Patreon. However, if some PayPal backers make regular monthly contributions, theirs will be factored into the total as well.
If you you would like to contribute but happen to prefer a method other than Patreon or PayPal, just let me know and we'll work out the details.
Thank you all once again for all your support! ❤
