A poll

I finished getting the annotated Raven's Children and Sun-Cutter wordpress accounts set up with the existing archives. I plan to start updating both of these as soon as I have an adequate backlog of Sun-Cutter pages (I'm tentatively shooting for the first week of May; this seems like a nice time to do it!). Now the question is how to handle things on the Dreamwidth end. I don't want to spam people; on the other hand, I was spamming people before, when I was posting the pages directly at this journal, so it wouldn't be too different. *g*

I'd like to start having more interesting, non-comics content on this blog, so here is a question for you. Since attempts to publish a "Hunter's Moon" book via traditional publishing keep falling through, I'm going to stop procrastinating this year (REALLY, I MEAN IT THIS TIME) and put together a downloadable version (probably also with a POD print version through Lulu.com or someplace like that). The whole comic is available online for free anyway, but I think a nice downloadable PDF or HTML archive (or both) would be a nice value-added feature.

What I'm not sure about is whether to charge for it. I'd definitely charge for the POD book, since there is a cost to ME to print it; but I'm on the fence about charging for the download. What do you think? It wouldn't be very expensive, more on the order of an ebook than a graphic novel.

My answer cannot be contained in your binary options! (answer in comments)

As I see it, there isn't a "right" and a "wrong" answer here -- I mean, voting for the free option doesn't mean that you don't want me to be compensated for my work or anything of that nature. The thing about Kismet is that I would love to monetize it somehow, and I'm tossing around various options for accomplishing that - I should note that none of these options includes shutting off access to the archives, which will ALWAYS be free online no matter what direction I go. At the moment I'm weighing the benefit of what small profit I might make for a pay-per-download PDF versus the benefit of having the PDF out there and freely available.

And the thing about webcomics is that they don't lend themselves to ereaders very well at ALL. I would have no compunctions whatsoever about charging for an ebook version of a novel I'd put online for free, because it is a nice versatile product that people would appreciate and use. A PDF of a comic, though, is mostly useful in the same venue as reading the comic online: you can read it on your computer, but not much else. And I feel a bit odd about charging for it.

One character in Kismet who does not yet have a name is the child in this and this page. She is a girl, and I want her to have some sort of plant/tree/nature type of name, but beyond that, I am drawing a blank.

On Tertia, due to the lack of last names, it's fairly common for children in the younger generation to be given names that are unique or unusual. So, in addition to common plant/tree/flower names, she could be named after just about ANYTHING.

The options in the poll are the names I'm considering right now. (And yes, I'm forcing you to pick just one. *g*) However, feel free to elaborate or to suggest something else in comments! If I like it, I'll use it. :D
