As of this afternoon, all the backer rewards have been shipped out. Whew! That was a lot of work. But I'm glad it's done.

No One Warps For Free
The latest Alpha Blue KS has launched:
Thanks for your continued support,

There it is. Hope you like it! My wife isn't cool with the salacious covers that I prefer, so it's more "traditional sci-fi."
While I'm not Zak's biggest fan, the guy does have some good points. I just saw his blog post about reviews earlier today and even though I'm a few days... Read more
All PDFs at once
I had thought of sending out the existing PDFs (for those who opted for that) ahead of Battle Star: Trek Wars, but since it should be finished and read... Read more
Surveys went out
Finally got around to sending them. It's been a chaotic, time-suck whirlwind in my sector of the galaxy. Sorry about the delay.
For PDFs + Alpha Blue PDF tier, I... Read more
I'm pretty much all moved into the new house. That's a week-and-a-half of my life I'll never get back. :(
So, no progress was made in that time period, but... Read more

With the internet's help, I was able to create a Star Wars like opening crawl for Alpha Blue. I think it turned out rather well...
