SPACE CREW. You’re all rad humans who deserve a post-launch update.
First: you should be getting your prizes. The last of them shipped out last week. If you were part of the Space Fleet, one of the top recommenders, or won one of the other giveaways during the campaign, you should have goodies soon. If you don’t see them by the end of next week, hit me up and we’ll figure it out.
Second: Toronto, I’m coming at you. I’ll be setting up a table at Ad Astra July 13-15. If you’re in the area, come say hi. Plus, there’ll be many other scifi goodies, and you’ll have a chance to meet Ed Greenwood, Robert J. Sawyer, Maria V Snyder, and more cool authorly folks.
Third: TTC could use some reviews. I’d prefer not to ask, but there’s some exciting news on the horizon, and seeing a few gold stars on Amazon will only help. If you’ve read the book--especially if you liked it--please take a minute to review on Amazon (US) or Amazon (CAN).
Thanks for being a solid crew.
Your Sizzlin’ Space Cap,
Space Crew, brace for landing.
You may have already received an updated directly from Inkshares today. I just got confirmation that, yes, your books are being shipped now.
Those waiting on e-books should get them May 1.
Regarding a launch:
After a lot of consideration, I just don’t think I’m the kind of writer who gets a bunch of pals together in the physical realm. At least not at the moment. I don’t want this to be about me, so much as the book itself. But at the same time, some have expressed interest in some kind of event, so I think we’re going to do an online launch.
I don’t have the exact date or method yet, but it will likely take place on some social platform. So please, if this interests you, follow my Facebook and Twitter accounts for updates and invites. You can also use them to show off those physical copies if you become so enthused.
Oh, and by the way, WE DID IT. This wouldn’t have been possible without you. Backers, your prizes will come separately, shortly after the launch. Great job everyone!
Your Solicitous, Still Somewhat Satisfied Space Captain,
Welcome to the final frontier, Space Crew. We’ve reached the edge of the galaxy, and there’s no turning back.
News #1: Content is Complete
I’ve been through a couple rounds of edits with the Inkshares team since the last update, and this week I sent off the final doc for one last look-over before it hits the printers. The deal is sealed; I can no longer touch this book (which I have very good and very anxious feelings about).
News #2: We Have a Cover
I’ve admittedly been holding onto this for awhile, but I wanted to do a BIG UPDATE with all the BIG THINGS. This was created by the good folks at Cover Kitchen, and they knocked it out of the park in my biased opinion:
News #4: Backer Goodies are Being Prepped As We Speak
The Companion Guide is getting its finishing touches before I send it off to print. Pendants have been shipped by the amazing Esanany, and they’re looking fantastic. Take a look:
No doodle today, because these images are worth more of your data.
And in case you missed it, you’ll have your books by May 1! Don’t forget to make sure your address is up to date on Inkshares.
Your somewhat sedulous Space Captain,
