About the project re-launch...

As some of you might also be aware, I've previously attempted to get this project funded about six months ago. At the time, the project was listed with a much higher goal as well. The project was unsuccessful for a few reasons but I think it was probably because I didn't do a good enough job promoting the book itself and showing potential new readers what they can expect of the book.

This forced me to go back to the drawing board and try to tackle the project from a few different angles. The primary one that's allowed me to relaunch with for a much smaller goal is that I've found a different printer that could provide the books at a significantly lower cost than my initial printer, without compromising any quality. Based on the samples that I was provided, I believe that the quality is even better than my original one.

I've also decided to try to provide a different variety of rewards and researched different manufacturers to find the best price to get these new rewards done.

And lastly, I also took the time to save some of my own money to pay for a larger portion of the print run myself.

All this allowed me to significantly lower the project goal and a completely redesigned project page and video will hopefully allow you all to get a much better sense of what to expect from Brainslug: Alien Tongues.

Risks and challenges

Fortunately, if funded, this project has no risks and challenges to speak of. The books are done and they're ready to be printed. My printer is just waiting for me to give them the go-ahead and the books will be in my hands within a few weeks.
