Talked to a friend with a minor in book binding to get all my questions answered. He put me in contact with the SDSU metal department to see if a student would be interested in doing the etching for the metallic editions.
I'm in talks with various printers, still trying to find the best price.
Ebook editions should be available in a week or two, print editions are still scheduled to go out mid to late September (I'll let you know if I run into any delays).
PS An anthology, The Crimson Pact Volume 4, featuring my story 'Children's Crusade' Came out last week. Here's the link in case you're interested. http://thecrimsonpact.com/store.html#tcpv4
