Books are at the printer!
In the famous words of the Rebel announcer on Hoth, "The first shuttle is away!'
Yes, indeed, The Cursed Legion has made its way to the printer, then will be shipped directly to Jeff for signing, and then to me for signing, and finally off to all of you backers who got physical copies. As for those of you who have ebooks coming, I'm hoping to have all formats laid out by the end of the week and you should be getting access to them then. Exciting times to be sure! I'm also going to release the books cover design to you here which combines Easley's old school Swords & Sorcery vibe with my love of 1980s cover framing. As you can see, the frame consists of a series of gears and medallions, the only one in full color and therefore 'active' is Adventure Fantasy in the top right. Around the frame can be seen other Art of the Genre series medallions such as Steampunk, Dark Fantasy, and the Taux medallion for our shared world anthology.
That reminds me I wanted to let everyone know that Art of the Genre's Thieves' World inspired old school anthology, Tales of the Emerald Serpent is funded and less than 48 hours from closing right here on Kickstarter if anyone still wants to get in on that new series. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/563681582/tales-of-the-emerald-serpent-shared-world-mosaic-a
