The project was fully-funded in under 15 minutes (which I think breaks a record for us), so I guess people really were interested in these. Thanks all for the amazing support. I’m going to go ahead and lock in some production time for these with the manufacturer!
Now that all the books in the Legends of the First Empire series are completed, I’ve had a number of people asking about slipcases to add that “special touch” usually reserved for most-beloved books. Well, Robin looked into it, and she found a number of suppliers who can take care of this for us. We’re going to launch a Kickstarter to see if enough people are interested in getting them. The Kickstarter will launch on Tuesday 6/23/20 at 12:00 noon EDT. There are a limited number of early-bird discounts for people who hop in right away.
While getting a book published at the height of a pandemic has been challenging, we are getting close to having all the pre-orders (both through my online store and the Kickstarter) sent out. Of the 3,077 orders we have 574 left to go. So, we’re at 81% shipped. Hopefully the rest of them will be out this week.
