Posters are on the way to me. They're pretty spiffy: The map against a black background with "The Greater Kingdom of Tremont and Litta: An Intimate History of the Greater Kingdom" below in white. They'll be here within two weeks and then I'll begin shipping them out. I ordered extras in case anyone wants to buy one later. I think they'll be $4.95 plus shipping, the cost of which I don't know yet. Because they're 11x17 I can ship them flat!
I am thinking of autographing them in silver Sharpie. Any thoughts on that? Autograph? No autograph? buh?
Still working on the paperbacks. CreateSpace as usual is driving me nuts, but LSI is realllly expensive per-unit. I am thinking of doing the "dual printer" strategy, which would give readers outside the US a much better deal on shipping etc since they could buy it from local bookshops or regional Amazons (US buyers would be able to order direct from bookshops too). Obviously that doesn't apply to those of you who got the paperback via the Kickstarter! :) I'll keep you posted.
Oh, hey! Almost forgot! In case you've never gotten the ebook of "Lovers and Beloveds," it's free TODAY ONLY with a bunch of other great fantasy books for Tax Day!
