Welcome to Promises Promises!

A glib look at diet, fitness and all of the struggles and successes that come with achieving a healthy lifestyle.

About the site

If you’re new here, it helps to start reading comics at the beginning with Starting Tomorrow, parts of the archives are sequential.

The archives have been divided up by their grouping in the books, which you can purchase here. You can search via the archives in the top menu bar, but it’s probably easier to click the thumbnails in the left sidebar.

About the comments

I’ve decided to move commenting off-site but you can still chime-in on Facebook and Twitter, The Baroness Knows Best and Patrons can also comment on Patreon.

About Patreon

Both Promises Promises and Knight & Dave comics are financed through ad sales and by the generous support of its patrons via Patreon.

Patreon is basically a content subscription service that gives you an opportunity to support the creators and content you enjoy for as little as $1, (or as much as you like), while scoring some great bonus content in the process! In my case, patrons get a credit on the Patrons page of this site, exclusive bonus comics, early access to comics and behind-the-scenes looks at work in progress, ebooks and video hang outs, (depending on the reward tier you choose), delivered right to your in-box. You only have to pay when there are new posts, you can set a budget cap and cancel any time.

To become a patron and receive all of the behind-the-scenes and bonus content just click the image or the text link below.


Advertising opportunities are available through Google Adsense or contact me directly for rates.

About Comic Chameleon and GoComics

Comic Chameleon and GoComics are mobile and online syndicates that carry my comics and lots of other great titles to check out. Fair warning though: Once you get started, they’re both really hard to put down.

About the Cast

The original Fiona, Trish, Shanta and Baroness designs were inspired by friends of mine. Just so it’s stated emphatically and for the record, that’s where the similarities end. The real life Fiona, Trish and Shanta are absolute professionals, terrific trainers and all around wonderful women. If you’re ever lucky enough to work with any one of them, you’ll have a great time and their results are undeniable. The real life Baroness on the other hand…well, she doesn’t actually have a little dog.

About the Baroness Knows Best

Baroness & Halvor
Our favourite one-percenter has her own advice column*: Helpful hints and tasteful advice from the lady who’s always delighted to point out everything that could be better accomplished, her way.




*The opinions expressed are hers and do not necessarily reflect the views Promises Promises, it’s creator, advertisers or affiliates.


About the Cartoonist

According to her friends, “Jules barbecues hella good.” Although she may have started Promises Promises back in ’08 as a vain attempt to write off a gym membership as a business expense, comics have become a true calling. When not cartooning, she divides her time between reading about health and fitness,* and actually going to the gym (occasionally).


*Jules is NOT a fitness professional of any kind.
At all.
Not even a little bit.
