Printing begins this weekend
Hello backers! By now, everyone should have a link to download their PDF copy of Outlive Outdead. (If you don't, let me know!) That means I'll be sending PDFs to Lulu.com for printing softcovers and hardcovers.
That also means the window to make changes is open but closing. If you need any changes to your PDF for any reason--typos, changed your mind about a customization, or whatever--please PLEASE send me an email ASAP!!! I really want everyone to get what they wanted, but once the print order has been given, there's nothing I can do. I will check for typos on my end but if you see anything that needs changing, let me know.
Those at the $25 level will have the softcover mailed direct from Lulu to your address. (The "I Heart Zombies" sticker will come from me, though.) Those at the $35 level or higher will get their softcover/hardcover and assorted trinkets direct from beautiful Aurora, Illinois, USA--my home. Just so you know what to look for.
One last thing. Once the last print order is on its way, we will be selling Outlive Outdead PDFs to the general public through DriveThruRPG, RPG Now, and Indie Press Revolution. We are hoping that some of y'all would be willing to write a review of Outlive Outdead and post it on the regular sites like RPG.net, RPGGeek, EN World, etc. Small companies like us rely on word-of-mouth and customer reviews as our main marketing. And let's make sure this is abundantly clear: We are seeking honest reviews, and as such, we cannot offer any compensation for fear of muddying the review's authenticity. We know this game is awesome--we just need some other people to say so on teh interwebs!
Thanks again. You guys rock!
