An Unexpected Update (and new, likely ultimate, stretch goal).

April 30th - via:
Which is what I thought that the last one was, but possibly it's not.  Anyway, assuming that enough NEW people sign up in the last day, here's the ultimate stretch goal: NEW! $8,000: Adventure pack for the RPG supplement! As it stands, I'm writing... (Read More)

Audiobook stretch goal reached! (And review of existing stretch goals)

April 29th - via:
We did it!  The audiobook will be funded.  With less than forty hours to go, let me review the stretch goal rewards.  Effectively, backers at the digital book level and above will get these extras: A six-story sampler from the upcoming collection... (Read More)

The (likely) final tier update before... THE END.

April 27th - via:
It's been real exciting, let me tell you. And very, very gratifying.  So I'm going out with as much a bang as possible before it all ends in three days.  I've created the physical book tier with a cool hundred physical copies (I foresee myself... (Read More)

Five days to go! New pledge tier, new stretch goal!

April 25th - via:
Five days!  Also: today we hit a private milestone in terms of backers: I thought that 112 was the absolute best that I could hope for, and we hit that before even the last push! To celebrate: well, today I make Caramelized Onion Bacon Tarts, like I... (Read More)

9 days to go!

April 21st - via:
It's been a fun three weeks so far, and we're on the home stretch.  I have a small treat: the first two chapters of FROZEN DREAMS!  Go ahead and check it out.  And, again, there's also the first chapter of the proposed audiobook.  Feel absolutely... (Read More)

New tiers: more physical copies, limited INTERNATIONAL tier, and sonnets!

April 16th - via:
Basically: There's going to be one more, limited, tier of physical copies.  I suspect that the well there is dry, but I also suspected that nobody would clean out the first two series of physical copies, so my judgement there is suspect. There's... (Read More)

Add-on list and Audiobook preview.

April 15th - via:
Two things for folks at the halfway point.  First off: a working copy of the first chapter of the FROZEN DREAMS audiobook (assuming it funds) is available on SoundCloud:  Wow, that's a big icon.  Oh, well, I'm sure there's a reason for that. ... (Read More)

The RPG supplement Stretch Goal is funded! And tentative add-ons.

April 13th - via:
And enough that we're reasonably on our way to the $3,000 reward and the audiobook.  The RPG supplement will be using Pelgrane Press's GUMSHOE for its engine; I'm going to start adapting my existing campaign material to it, but obviously the July... (Read More)

First two minutes of FROZEN DREAMS, in audiobook form!

April 10th - via:
So, in anticipation for the $3K stretch goal, I've been working with Sally Stewart (you might know her from her narration of "Jocasta: The Mother-Wife of Oedipus") on the potential audiobook.  Obviously, we're still waiting to see what happens; but... (Read More)

First Look at the Cin City map!

April 7th - via:
I don't plan to fill all of your inboxes with non-news stuff, but I do have some news: I have a map-maker!  He's Robert Altbauer of Fantasy Maps, and he came well-recommended to me.  I checked out his portfolio, liked his work, and he's working on... (Read More)

Another stretch goal done!

April 5th - via:
We hit the $1500 point last night, or this morning: I am even now putting out the call for a mapmaker.  If you happen to know somebody who is interested in this gig -- which might lead to more map-making work -- let me know.  I want to get things... (Read More)

After many, many requests: there is another physical copy tier. Also: add-on questions.

April 3rd - via:
Thirty signed and lettered books in this series, same price as before. I still say that it's cheaper to buy the book yourself and get me to sign it later, but I'm gonna listen to my wife and let you give me money.  And not sound like Grumpy Cat in... (Read More)

A great first day, so let's talk more stretch goals.

April 2nd - via:
Yesterday was a very pleasant surprise which I will not allow to go to my head.  Since we're doing so well, let's talk stretch goals.  And since there are so many ways that stretch goals can go wrong, I'm trying to be extra-careful about what I... (Read More)

"I was expecting this, but not so soon."

April 1st - via:
That funded remarkably quickly!  Thanks, everybody.   So let's talk stretch goals...  don't worry, I've already thought up a couple in advance.  And I understand very well the concept of 'don't over-promise.'  There are a lot of pitfalls in... (Read More)
