Sorry if this has already been asked or discussed, but is the Lady going to continue releasing the chapters in PDF format for us to download?

The last I remember hearing is this:

The download isn't free unless Earthsong has a direct sponsor now. And since I apparently don't have a sponsor, it costs $5 to download. Who is going to pay that for something they're already reading on their computer for free? (I wouldn't even, and it's MY comic).

I don't get any money for people just viewing it with their online reader either. So... it looks like I might be pulling out of Wowio if this doesn't get any better.

I recall the statement on the site Tam,... and I know we all started coming up with ideas as to how to make the Lady money, and help support the comic. Thats around the time I had left, and am now just getting back to the forum. I was wondering if that service was still going to be available through this site, or if it was going to stop.

I assume if it wasn't mentioned on the forums, that perhaps it's done. I wouldn't mind downloading more of the chapters if they became available.

Thank you Tam.

What does Lady Yates mean by "Sponser" Anyway? Does the sponser pay to have it hosted on Wowio?

Basically the sponsor, if I understand correctly, pays Wowio for the comic to be free. In exchange, they get an entire page on the pdf as an advertisement.

How much does it cost to be a sponser? I may be interested.

I guess I'd suggest talking to Wowio.

I will check with them and get back to you guys. Depending on how much it is, I may be willing to contribute soley to that cause for a time. Wouldn't be silly to see a full page PDF ad of me going:

I've actually pulled entirely out of Wowio for numerous reasons. I'm fairly certian that this was mentioned on the main page, though I have indeed most shamefully not uploaded a new version of the main page that doesn't have the wowio banner there.

So thank you, but no sponsorships are needed, nor possible.

So what can we do to help support the comic then?
