Cutey Confidential reminds you that you only have a few weeks left to unlock the first milestone with this pin-up playing card deck that would look very appetizing in your personal collection.
I sent you fain mail, but I think it's probably better if I asked you here (My bad).What is the process of getting MLS published? I know you do it through Lulu, but what are the printing and publishing costs? How much is set aside for costs and how much goes to the supported charities? Just curious, and I need to get someone off my back about this. ;) Thanks.
We are making this question public in case other users are unsure how to google royalty with Lulu.com. This is good to know if you plan to create your own books and projects with self publishing websites as well! :)
Basically, the revenue for a physical book is split 80/20 between the Creator and Lulu.
We do have to set aside a very minimal amount for advertising (it isn’t free, sadly) but other than that every penny we earn in the turnover goes towards the charity! All of our artists are simply making beautiful art to help out an important cause.
Lulu wont release profit within the first month of sales so while waiting, we’ve decided to switch charities to help something a bit more global of immediate importance; the threat of ebola.
We’ve also decided to send an even amount every month while sales are ongoing to help even out the donation process! Here, lookie, this is our most recent receipt with the charity, which I processed today:
As a mod, I hope this clears up any confusion. We do hope that you continue to enjoy MLS because we need all the good out there in the world. Its tough work! But it makes so many happy in the end, so we can all agree it’s totally worth it, right? :)
~* ! SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT ! *~
In light of the recent events, we will be switching our donation from the Lung Cancer Alliance to efforts in stopping the Ebola outbreak.
Our charity of choice will be Global Givings Ebola Epidemic Relief Fund.
Additionally, MLS 1 & 2 will be rereleased soon! Please stay tuned for more information.

Its been a while since we last updated proper on this tumblr, but we have been busy with a lot of administration work related both to My Little Sweetheart 4, and the Cutey Confidential Calendar.
Artbook update: We will finishing reviewing the artists applications by the end of this week. Artists who have not heard back from us should recieve a reply from us soon.

Hey guys. I'm not sure who runs this tumblr, but some folks at the Indiegogo campaign page seem a bit antsy about not getting a response about comission slots. What's the word on that?
