As I write this, we're three hours away from SHOWTIME! Its almost over! Well, this part of it anyway. And I gotta say folks, this has been beyond my wildest dreams for this project. We made and beat funding for our cute little book and that is awesome. And then seeing the pages of work come in from our guys was great fun. Then while I was building all the fake ads and my own story, I was surprising myself with how much fun it was to assemble! And then when I think its all over, our old friend Robert Knight comes on with a surprise NINE PAGES of extra content! That bumped the page count way up to a grand total of 36 pages!!! Now THAT'S an Anthology!!
I told the guys, I cannot be prouder of this book. Its all done, assembled and off to the printer. Just waiting for my invoice as we speak. Mike has ordered his prints of the cover already. We're shipping these out as soon as I get them in my hands. I'll get the signed copies to Mike and he'll send em off from there. A couple of you got the special CHEESECAKE book deal incentive I tossed in. It should all go real smooth! I think once the book is out and in people's hands, if they email me and want a digital copy, I would be glad to email you one! (Extra bonus!)
I am just sooooo thrilled as to how this turned out. We got three hours left though. We can push it even further! I only ask a couple things more from you fine folks:
1- PLEASE make sure your Amazon payment information is updated. Once the Kickstarter is over, we have to wait two weeks (per their instructions) for our payment to be received. And Amazon/Kickstarter gets their cut as well. So we'd hate for something to go wrong and you not get your copy of the book and we not get the payment we need to make the book happen! So please, please, please, make sure your payment info is up to date. Thank you.
2- When you get the book, read it cover to cover (with the lights turned on, of course! No sense in scaring yourself to DEATH now is there?!!?) and then look all of us up and check out our other works. Mike and I especially have done indie comics for a couple decades now. Robert has done stuff as well. But Shane, he's the newbie. And he's got great ideas for more in the future. (oh and there will be more!) So if you like what we do with the book, check out our other stuff. We appreciate the attention and support!
3- Give feedback! We're probably going to do another one very soon, and any feedback you have for this book and its potential sequels would be appreciated always! Thanks.
Folks, this has been great. I'm going to keep in constant contact with you as to the progress with the book and its status as it gets printed and shipped to you. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me!
Onward and upward! --ADAM T.
(As a bonus for all the good things that have happened, I've included a couple teaser images from the book here on this update! One of a Movie ad by me, and another from Robert for our ad page. I thought it was cute! Enjoy!!!!)
