Hello White Ashians,
We hope you’ve all been having a fantastic holiday season and are enjoying some time with your family and loved ones… or at least a couple of people you kinda like. Here in White Ash, it is indeed, the most wonderful time of the year…
…Time for the BACKERKIT SURVEYS. They should be hitting your inbox anytime now.
We apologize that’s taken a bit longer than usual for us to get these to you post-campaign, but the non-Kickstarter festivities that dominate this time of year, tend to slow down even the most tightly run ships. But we’re trying to buckle down. To that end we’ve got a bit of a tight turnaround on the surveys. Specifically:
If you want YOUR NAME in the PDF, you MUST FILL OUT YOUR SURVEY BY JANUARY 5th.
If you fill out your survey after January 5th, you’ll still get all your other rewards, but we’ll be unable to include your name, because on Monday, January 7th we’ll be distributing the Chapter Four PDF.
But we don’t want to make this seem complicated. Filling out the survey is easy. It only takes a minute. BackerKit walks you through everything, collects your shipping information, etc. And if say you wanted to grab a copy of this amazing variant by Joe Quinones…
...you just click a button and boom, it's in your cart (Hint, if you want one, I'd fill out your survey sooner than later. We've only saved a few as add ons and it is a very limited print run).
Thank you again for your support of White Ash. It’s your love for independent comics that makes this possible. To that end, we often ask you to “spread the word of our little town” which we know is kind of a general call to arms. But today we have specific way you can help.
Bleeding Cool is holding nominations for their 2018 Reader Awards. If you were so inclined, we’d humbly ask you to consider submitting White Ash for Best Small Press Comic, Conor Hughes for Best New Artist and Fin Cramb for Best Colourist. We've also had some amazing cover artists, Nick Robles, Romina Moranelli and of course, Joe Quinones who are all deserving of Best Cover nods. Any visibility helps us get a bit more on the mainstream radar.
Even if we’re not your favorites, we encourage you to vote and shine some love on an indie title. There are some amazing Small Press Comics being published here on Kickstarter. Pat Shand’s Destiny NY series is an enthralling and constantly expanding universe. Mythopoeia puts out the breathtaking Glow and Skies of Fire series and Kevin Joseph’s Tart is a true Kickstarter institution (now heading towards an 8th issue all distributed on the platform).
Speaking of Tart, Kevin wanted to remind anyone who backed White Ash Chapter Four AND Tart # 7 you’re in line for some extra special rewards. When you’re filling out your Tart survey (NOT the White Ash one) use the codeword “Sarah“ when you check out and you’ll have one these cross over prints of Lillian teaching Tart how to to shoot by Tart series artis Ludo, included in with your Tart rewards when they ship.
That's it for now. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or don't see your survey in your inbox by the end of the day today.
Looking forward to bringing you lots of White Ash goodies in the New Year,
Charlie, Conor, Fin and Heather
