    I've been spending the past week packing books for Kickstarter backers. Once I finish, my books will also be available for purchase in the exocomics store. So much packing.

    Once the spiders grow to full size they'll be super handy. They can weave nets to use as slings for carrying boxes and they have lots of legs for packing books.

    Sadly, Li failed to realize that Princess of the Cute Animals was already a taken title, and the only animals left to be Princess of was spiders. They really wanna help though!

    Hmm, what colors and types of cloth were in that dress? That can have a lot to do with what kind of critters show up. (I spent some time in Princess Technical Support) Spiders are actually pretty tricky, I'm kinda impressed. Going forward you might want to avoid leatherette (strong for reptiles), vertical stripes in cotton (bats, owls) or poly cotton blends (great danes, hunting dogs) and also avoid singing in a baritone unless you're near a large body of water. They should really put together a FAQ for this stuff.

    I wish I could have helped on kickstarter, or could afford one of those book :(

    Shoelace just does not care.

  • Ya, i went there

    Ummm...Li? I think that only works for virgin maidens...just saying. J/k of course, love your work. Huge grats on the book thing.

    Haha. And I thought spiders were nasty! Those little guys seems to be a good source of help. 8 limbs do come in handy, and the ability to climb up walls should make things easy. I wish I could do things like that, but the only animal in the house is my cat, and I'm a guy. Oh well, I still have my keyboard wizardy to help. "Attention! I need the kitchen to be cleaned up, posthaste!" ... Nothing. I guess it's a talent. -Keep up the good work, Li, and I can't wait to buy your books!

    Spiders could still help, with packaging

    You look way more like Princess Peach than a Disney Princess, dear! Surprised you didn't get goombas, haha. I guess cute forest animals are TM Disney though - intellectual property laws mean your options were spiders or honey badgers. Be thankful.

    Eeeeek, if spiders are helping you, I'm not so sure if I want my books ^^;

    You look like princess peach. Except you actually do stuff when not made of paper, I assume.
