When we started planning this campaign, we thought we were maybe getting ahead of ourselves to even plan our Stretch Goals. We thought we were maybe putting the cart far, far ahead of the horse. It smacked of arrogance to us.
Shows you what we know. In the space of five days, you've mowed each and every one of those goals down.
The Annotated Process of Lady Sabre is now unlocked, and the book will become a reality. You can read about it under the Stretch Goals heading on the page. As of this time, if you pledged $30 or more, you'll be getting this book along with your copy of the trade and your copy of the Pocket Guide. We're still trying to figure out how to handle the new postage costs. We'll keep you posted on that, as well.
Rick, Eric, and I are going to take the weekend to consider where we want to head next. All three of us agree that any further Stretch Goals will be directed towards improving the quality of those items already on offer. In particular, we're revisiting the specs on Vol. 1 itself, to see what we can do to make it better. Our endpapers, for instance, were the same paper-weight as the interior pages; we're now considering jumping them up to a two-color process on a heavier stock. We hope to announce any new Stretch Goals by Tuesday of next week (14 May).
To take you into the weekend, we wanted to share with you one of the pin-ups that'll be included in the trade. You can see Karl Kerschl's piece on the page. Below is a piece done by the talented and effervescent Bethany Westmoreland of Her Ladyship pondering the Aether.
