HERE COME THE PDFs

Hello White Ashians,

It's PDF DAY.

That's right, get your digital boogey on and look for an email from our partners at BackerKit. This email should include links to the standard PDF's for Chapter Four and the art prints from the campaign.  If you backed White Ash at a tier that included our Digital Catch-up Pack, links for additional PDFs should be there as well.  

We will be distributing more digital content later this month, including the deluxe PDF's and  additional campaign art.  But for now, we wanted to make sure we got Chapter Four into peoples' hands.  We know a lot of our loyal backers have been waiting many months to see the next installment.  So wait no longer.

(Note: As we said before,  the language in Chapter Four at times is a bit saltier than our previous issues. So if you've been sharing White Ash with your children, we suggest you preview it first. )

As for the physical copies, the books are with the printer. We're hoping to have an update soon as to when they will be shipping.  But currently, we still anticipate being able to begin fulfillment in February.   

We hope you enjoy Chapter Four.  Please let us know if you don't receive the email from BackerKit or have any trouble downloading the PDFs. 

Thank you again for your support. We look forward to hearing what you think.

Charlie, Conor, Fin and Heather. 

Two days left to have your name in the Chapter Four PDF

Hello White Ashians,

Happy New Year! 

Amazingly, 89% of you have already filled out your BackerKit surveys. To that end, we just wanted to send out this gentle reminder to the 11% who haven't. If you'd like your name listed in the backers' section of the Chapter Four PDF, you have until the end of the day on Saturday to get yours in.  Because on Monday the 7th, we're sending these puppies out.  

If for whatever reason you never received a link from BackerKit or are having trouble filling it out, please don't hesitate to contact us.  

Thanks again for all your support.  Here's to an amazing 2019 in White Ash and in the rest of the world.

Charlie, Conor, Fin and Heather

Here Come The Surveys

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

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Hello White Ashians, surveys are coming VERY SOON.  In fact, look for them just after Christmas.   We're going to have a tight turnaround on them, so we can get you your PDF's as we start the New Year. For those of you who celebrate, may your holiday be merry.  And for those of you who don't, have an equally amazing Tuesday. 

All the season's best from White Ash,

Charlie, Conor, Fin and Heather

 ... Dancing.  Get it?

Seriously, 756 BACKERS!!! WOW, That’s a new record for us. And it’s one that we’re incredibly proud of. We couldn’t be happier that so many of you have continued to support and spread the word about White Ash. Building a fanbase for an independent comic isn’t easy and we don’t take that loyalty lightly. With it comes a responsibility to deliver and rest assured, deliver we will.

To that end, I will regularly update you as we move along through production. Here’s a quick snapshot of the next couple of weeks. 

Week One — Kickstarter collects fees and backers who may have forgotten that their credit card has expired/was stolen/was maxed out on adult internet entertainment (now that Tumbler has shut down), will be given a chance to update it. 

Week Three (around the 22nd) — As soon as Kickstarter has transferred the funds to our account, we’ll send out our BackerKit surveys. Please fill these out as quickly as possible. We’re looking to do a fast turnaround on White Ash, as we’d like to get your PDFs by the end of the month. 

Week Four (around the 30th) — Once we have all the surveys back and we have a list of backer names and addressed in hand, we’ll be sending out the PDF’s for Chapters One through Four.

By then, we should also have a firm shipping schedule from the printer locked down and have a better sense of when exactly in February we’ll begin shipping the print copies of the books.  We look forward to sharing more info with you as soon as we have it. 

If you have any questions, always feel free to reach out to me here on Kickstarter or find us on the following social networks: 

Conor (and sometimes Charlie in chat) streams LIVE ON TWITCH M-F from 12:30-5pm and 10:30pm-1amEST

Be in touch very soon, Charlie and the rest of Team Ash (Conor, Fin and Heather)
