IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Did you receive a book with sub-par print quality? Do the blacks not look solid, but like they were rubbed off? Unfortunately, we’ve run into this problem ourselves, and we’re very upset about it.The ninjas do their best to make these books look awesome, but we cannot control what goes on when Lulu sends your order to print. If you got a bad book, don’t settle! Complain to Lulu directly by going here to Lulu Customer Support.

Navigate to “Email” (right below Customer Support). You will need to sign in. Then choose “Help with my Order” and be sure to select “Item has a print defect” next to “What’s the problem?” Mention the bad print quality, nobody should have to stand for ugly books.

Needless to say, we’re very unhappy about this and apologise profusely, even if Lulu should really apologise to you. We’re working on making the books easier to buy (no more Lulu) with better quality for the same low price we promise (bottom line cost-to-print), but in the meantime, we’ll have to continue to use Lulu.

Please let us know if you got a bad book, and/or what the outcome was after you Read More

Well, only a few more hours left until the submission deadline for Volume 3!

Ana and I are really happy with everyone’s work. The Sugar Ninja inbox is overflowing with amazing art. It’s awesome to see some new faces (and some lovely ladies from Vol. 1 and 2, of course) and brand new illustrations, comics, and stories. I don’t think it’s far-fetched to say that Volume 3 is going to be the best Sugar Ninjas volume yet!

Oh, and for those girls who were Sugar Ninjas from the start (good old Volume 1), and wondering when you’ll be able to get it again, fear not. Ana wants to go back and re-edit it so your art can look as good as ever! Stay tuned for more info on that, but Volume 1 will definitely be available to purchase again.

So, what do we have left?  About 2 hours before midnight here? Well then, I’d better get back to cataloguing all these submissions and if you haven’t done so yet, you better send something in! It’ll be another year before we open submissions back up, you don’t want to spend all that time looking at these cool books and wishing you were in them.

It will be another month before we get the forum up and running, so until then I’ll be using some posts here on my blog to get messages out for different Sugar Ninjas. Today’s special message comes from Sugar Ninja Heather Lewis:

 “Hello all you Sugar Ninjas! There is a Sugar Ninjas table at AnimeNEXT (June 10-12th) being run by Avantika, Melissa, and Heather. We welcome everyone to visit the table! If you want to sell artwork/books/etc, please email Heather at MadelineLimeatgmaildotcom (of course, replace “at” with “@” and “dotcom” with “.com”) with the subject: “Sugar Ninjas Table!” We’re asking that anyone submitting more than one or two items to please assist in the table fee. You do not have to attend the convention to be a part of the table, we are willing to place and sell your items for you, but we ask you also submit some business cards with your package of items. Even if you don’t have anything to sell, but are attending the convention, you are welcome to come hang out at the table and help explain what and who we are to the con attendees.”

Any other Sugar Ninjas planning to hit the convention circuit this Read More
