Chromatic Press Launches Kickstarter to Bring Gauntlet to Print

Big news: we’re running a Kickstarter for Gauntlet!

The last chapter of Ellery Prime and T2A’s survival horror/romance Gauntlet will be released this coming Friday, and in order to fund a paperback version, we’re running a Kickstarter through the month of June. We can’t go to print unless we meet this goal, so I hope you check it out!

A survival horror romance for adults and older teens, Gauntlet is the first illustrated novel to begin and end in the digital pages of Sparkler Monthly magazine. Help us lift this great story from the computer screen and into the pages of a paperback! And while we’re at it, we’ll expand Gauntlet with some brand-new items…including a replica of the bracelet our hero Clio uses in the labyrinth. If a Female Gaze magazine isn’t going to publish fiction with a jewelry tie-in for adults, then who will? Who will do that for the world?!

Read all of Gauntlet online for free, only for the length of this Kickstarter! And if you agree that keeping it a digital exclusive would be a shame, please consider pledging to help us reach our goal of putting Gauntlet to the printed page.

Sparkler update: The end of Off*Beat!

Posted on April 18th, 2014 by Rebecca Scoble | No Comments

Off*BeatThis is it–after years and years of waiting, the final chapter of Off*Beat is up on the site now! We can hardly believe it’s over–after so many years waiting for an ending, wanting to see things finally get resolved for Tory and Colin…at least 50% of the Sparkler staff has been reduced to tears this week.


Anyway! Are you already a Sparkler subscriber? You can read the final chapter right now.

Or, if you were waiting for the series to be over before reading, head to the series page to start from the beginning.

Not yet a subscriber? You can fix that right here!

Plus, we’re currently taking preorders for the print version of Off*Beat volume 3! There’s still a lot of work to be done before we have the finished paperback in hand, but if you’d like to buy it now and then get a sweet surprise in the mail in early July, you can use the links below.

Off*Beat (Vol. 03)
Off*Beat Complete Series (Vol. 01-03)

Both the single book and the set can be bought alone, or in a special deluxe edition with a keychain, postcard, new buttons, etc.

We’ve also extended the deadline on the big Off*Beat contest to the end of April!

Thank you SO MUCH to all the fans who’ve made this possible. Getting to rescue a series that we all love so much, that never got an ending–it’s been such an incredible experience, and we couldn’t have done it without the support of so many great Off*Beat fans who wanted to read the ending just as much as we did. 

Anyway, once you manage to tear yourself away from Off*Beat, we’ve got another great update for you–Dusk in Kalevia volume 4 is up for subscribers!

And last week’s chapter of Dead Endings is now free to read for a limited time.

Thanks guys, and we hope you enjoy the ending
