Parabolis is in the Balkans. Dubrovnik, Croatia, to be precise. It's sharing a drink with the guy who plays Little Finger on Game of Thrones. Just kidding. It's not sharing a drink with anyone. It's having a half-hearted conversation with some Aussie backpacker in a hostel because Aussies backpackers are everywhere. Just kidding. Parabolis is in China. It's in China hiking Huangshan, eating scorpions at the Donghuamen Night Market, having a cocktail, alone, in Shanghai's Senator Saloon. Just kidding. It's in China, in print.
We received wet proofs last week. The dummy book looks awesome. For those who don't know, a dummy book is the physical book without any printed art or material on it. Just a blank cover and blank pages, to get an idea of what the book feels like in hand. And it feels good.
We just need to iron out some details like color-correction and trapping issues, and then we're good--we give the green light and it goes into production. We're still on schedule so standby.
Outside of Parabolis, Curt is planning his wedding that is scheduled to coincide with Parabolis' release. Eddie is in Fire Academy trying to become a part-time firefighter, working for an investment real estate company, and trying to draft his second book.
Keep an eye out for an email requesting contact/mailing info as we begin to piece together the backer rewards. And always, thanks for your support.
