I just heard from Bella Rosa Books, our print publisher, that the softcover and hardcover proofs have been approved and the books are being ordered. We will be shipping out in January! Praise be to the Most High. We are so very happy that this book is done, and will soon be in the hands of those who ordered them. Note that Bella Rosa Books publishes many of Faith's mystery books (as Gwen Hunter). If you like her fantasy and urban fiction, check out Faith's other books. You won't be dissapointed! If you are a writer, you may also want to check out How to Write Magical Words, a book on writing basics with Faith and friends from magicalwords.net.
Again, Faith and I offer our humble thanks for helping us make this dream a reality. We also want very much to thank Spike Y Jones for his tireless efforts and amazing work on the Rogue Mage RPG books. We could not have asked for a better editor. Additionally, Spike has written Conjure Ink, a PDF on tattoo magic for the Rogue Mage RPG, that will be offered to all of you for free as soon as we clear it from layout. I think you will enjoy this addition to the game. And that will close out our project on Kickstarter--yes, FINALLY. I will send out one last call for address changes when we have books to start sending out.
So, what's next on the horizon for the game or fiction line? Well, I will be writing the third in the adventure series in February, and Faith and I will be working on some short stories set in the Faithverse over the next month or so. There's a possibility that Spike will produce some additions to the product line, as well, in addition to editing us. If you've come to love Rogue Mage, rest assured, that we intend to keep moving forward with the line.
Stay tuned for Conjure Ink. Meanwhile, fight the Darkness and enjoy the holidays!
