@Karlijn: Lovely to know you're still reading! I've been toying with a couple of ideas on how to wrap it all up in a nicely entertaining way but I'm not rushing it as I find if I play with it long enough it pretty much ends up writing itself anyway! :)

I'm a bit sad to see this comic end, I think it was one of the first I followed on Smackjeeves and one of the very few I still always look forward to. It's been great, I can only thank you for sharing this beautiful story <3
It's nice to see Janey again, she's unpredictable as always, I love her. I can't wait to see how you'll wrap up the story, writing good endings is hard!

That's a great image to end on.

(Although due to slow loading my first thought was, "Why a carpet beater?" -doh- )

Thank you to you (& Bex) for the comic. It's been great.

I am looking forward to the epilogue, but there's no rush, enjoy your break and come back when you're ready. :)



Edited for minor spelking mistakes. -double doh!-

@skyangel: Not sure might have been, an American Author who's name escapes my tongue right now was given a PRISM grant to publish her graphic novel about Sappho and the Isle of Lesvos she was also doing a Lesbian themed SciFi she is based in or around Bowling Green KY graduated from WKU and was active in all the cons. We stopped corresponding over her taking one of the Vaper as a sponsor and pushing it. As her readers were teens and young adults I found that irresponsible. However the PRISIM grant did her her. I suggest you present this as a handbook/guide for girls just comming out.

@kidcthulhu: As I said to Anyname above I feel a little burnt out at the moment and I know this comic so well that I'm not even sure if I'd ever take the book of the shelf to look through it! lol But yea, we're treading softly as we've really no idea how good the copies will come out or how many people would be interested if it's a worthy publication.

@Dragonrider: Wasn't it Prism that Rose Megan Gedris used for her Lesbian Pirates from Outer Space?

@ohanyname!: I feel a bit burnt out on this tbh so I'm not making any promises about anything for a while. I'm toying with the final script because I like to float ideas over a few weeks and see which ones still remain bouyant by the time I come to start writing properly. I'd love to have done another Jane Blonde and have some great ideas for that but I want to take more time on that too, so maybe next Xmas! lol Happy Hanukkah to you too

@EleanorA: I imagine anyone could turn SS into a PDF from the existing archive anyway and I must admit that of the few professionally published reprints I've bought lately of old 60's-70's comics, I feel the small format has ruined the readability as the pages which were originally published at twice the size, and that's from Egmont, a very professional publisher! The same comics scanned from originals by enthusiasts and sold as CBR files on disc are actually much better as you can zoom in and study the art in great detail.

Having said that, I do still cherish physical copies myself and Becky is really the one sorting this out so we're going to print her a copy first and see how good or bad it looks before making any firm decisions about numbers. I believe she said the maximum page count can be no more than 50-60 pages per book so that in itself means we will have to split chapters into two books.

We'll just see how it goes :)

A great page and a good way to end the chapter. I look forward to the epilogue after your little break.

Congrats on getting published. I'm still too scared to leave the safe confines of SmackJeeves to go to print...

So glad you plan on publication, still suggest PRISM so they can help promote coming of age for girls. I do wish my foster daughter had this as guide, possibly a happier outcome.

@EleanorA: I'm hoping it's on paper, so when people visit they have something to read in the smallest room (reading something uplifting while your bowels move is very much an English thing).

Janey looks very much like my girlfriend, who is an Afrikaner from near Cape Town. She was getting grief from officious officials at the aeroport, so I waded in and got involved, and we shared a taxi back together. We've been together ever since.

Would I have got involved if she didn't look like Janey? Probably not, I have to admit.

I think from this you can understand why Janey is my favourite S_S character!

She has longer hair, and if there was a way of attaching a pic to a post, I'd send you one. The resemblance is striking.

I hope when Sky says 'publication' she means paper, but I have the entire archive as .pdf's if that's what you prefer. It's a webcomic but the author still has copyright so if I send the whole archive to you as a CD (copyright is is implicit even when it's not explicit), she's still entitled to payment for her work. For me to send you th archive as a Cd without recognising the author is theft.

Thrilled to hear about the possibility of publication, would love to have the comic in a pdf format on my tablet for when I don't have a working internet. :)

Janey's looking great!

@skyangel: So what happens next? Do we get a Xmas special like Jane Blonde, or are you going to take a good long (and well-deserved) break?

I used to follow a good dozen webcomics but either they fell by the wayside, moved into hentai/softporn, or just got repetitive and boring. Now there are only two that have remained consistently interesting, innovative and good, and yours is one of them. I'll miss my weekly fix of Simply Sarah, but hey everyone needs a holiday.

(The other one is 'My Pet Succubus' by Carlos G., which is very different, but appeals to my sense of humour. I.e., warped.) (-:

If we don't see you again for a few weeks, happy Hanukkah and a prosperous New Year!

Oh I missed the bit about publication. Do you mean real paper? What are you expecting it to cost?

Oh and... I have a colour laser printer so if you are only anticipating a short print run I can print the whole lot for you, but if you expect to sell more than 1000 copies a commercial printer is a better bet.

Can I pre-order mine now?

As I've said before, this was never the planned official ending as we have other characters whose pages were put into storage for the sake of pace and focus on the main Laura/Lenore story line, and these are pages that all help wind up the entire SS series much more nicely so I'm still excited about getting those done. We're also finally preparing SS for publication too.

To those of you who have genuinely supported us in making this comic, either regularly or hoppity-hop ( like I do ) instead of just using it as a platform for a personal ego trip or other ulterior motive, we THANK YOU, because the heart of a comic as we all know, always lies with it's readers, and it's that heart that has helped produce the number of pages you see here. :)

@skyangel: Aw, thank you! I actually went back through your archives recently - it's so interesting looking at Sarah and Janey's college years again - no less poignant and relatable this time round, but with an added feeling of "how foolish young people can be!" that comes with slightly more life experience, I think. :'-)

@Fruitbat44: Yea, originally everything was going to happen in part six, right up to the very last page ever, but as the Lenore story grew I realised that it would be too messy to keep breaking off to have Sarah catch up with Stacey, Leo, and explore Nikki's personal life and events too so the decision to deal with those later started to form about 20 pages back when I could see the page count was going to exceed the 100 mark!
