My rule of thumb for Amanda is that she is a jerk and a bully, but she’s also an eight year old kid. When you’re that young, you feel things a lot more intensely than you do as a grown up.

I am happy to announce a new item for your Selkie experience. I have decided to start doing monthly Donation Incentive extra images. If I may direct your attention to the right side of the site, you will see a purple Donation button, and above it a small sample of the Donation Incentive. A donation of any amount will recieve the full-size image. For the time being I will need to mail the images manually, so I will apologize in advance for the lack of immediacy.

I also wish to address a concern that is very important to me: those of you who have ALREADY made a donation, before there was an additional incentive to do so. I have not forgotten your generosity, so those of you who have already made a donation, keep an eye on your inboxes. Over the next day I will scour my Paypal records and performing a one-time retroactive gifting of the new Incentive. I’m not going to tell you NOT to donate again, but it is not necessary to make a second donation to receive the new image.

And even if you are unable to make a donation, I want you all to know that I am thankful to everyone for your readership and continued support. You all make my Mondays and Thursdays AMAZING. 😀 Thank you!

Writing Amanda (even sad-face Amanda) makes me think back to my own childhood bullies. My curiosity got the better of me and I looked up my middle school bully on Facebook while drawing this strip. Apparently the kid who shoved me around so much I had to go to counseling is now a medic in the U.S. Army.
