Hey guys!!!

First off, I want to thank you all for your support during this contest! You have seen Tethered through so much already, and this is only the start of the journey! My family would also like to thank you all for your contribution towards our own personal cause. We really hope eventually we can both raise awareness, and help others who find themselves in similar situations to my sister. I will be posting updates on all of this if you are interested in seeing the progress of what this prize money had help start 🙂

The other thing I would like to do here is redirect you guys to other sites should you wish to keep up to date with Tethered, these places will send you notifications of updates each Friday, so you don’t have to worry about missing out!!

A quick explanation as to why I have chosen not to be a featured artist on LINEwebtoon – for me, it feels like the wrong direction for Tethered to go in. The main reason I started Tethered, was not just to tell a story, but also raise awareness on many subjects I plan to cover over time. If I restrict myself to only one website, no matter the amount of traffic it gets there, I feel like I am limiting like that, then I am missing out on chances on getting my messages across. I never expect to get paid to do my webcomic either, I already have a full time job which I love, so I’d rather the offer go to someone else who is really dying for that position. This is not to say I am willing to draw for people for free (unpaid commissions) >:P only free work is for myself!

Now, I set up a Patreon account a while ago, because I had some readers that did wish to support me. The money I have raised from Patreon, I had put a LOT of it towards my sisters new wheelchair. I am saving up the money in case my family need stuff, otherwise I will spend it on things for my comic – such as saving up to buy a new tablet (MINE IS COMPLETELY FALLING TO PIECES XD!) So whether you’d like to financially support me to help me in that sense, then please feel free to do so 🙂 plus for those who do choose to support $5+ get to play Team Fortress 2 each month with other Patrons and Shane Sheenan of the Slice of Life Beefpaper comic! We also use hangouts to chat about a load of rubbish XD people are free to ask myself or Shane questions, but most the time we all just end up messing around and having a laugh!!

Anyhow, I hope to hear from some of you guys soon!! Let me know if you’re from LINEwebtoons 🙂 it’d be awesome to see how many of you continue to support me through-out the rest of Tethered’s journey!!

Take care guys, and all the best!
