Proof copy, and get ready for BackerKit surveys!
I recently returned from some traveling, and what was waiting for me but the Archives of the Sky proof!!
It's looking really lovely, and great to finally hold it in my hands. All the art really pops, and there aren't any major problems. I've caught a number of minor typos and things to tweak, but it's 99% of the way there. I'll be fixing these final issues and ordering a second proof once I'm done. But we're nearly there, and if the second proof looks good when it arrives (which should be around December 1st), I'll be ready to start fulfilling preorders immediately thereafter.
Speaking of which, in the next few days look out for an email from BackerKit. If you ordered a physical copy of the book for US/Canada shipping, or you pledged at one of the premium levels, you'll be asked for your shipping address. (Pledgers at the "International" level won't be, since you'll be getting a code to order your books at cost and pay your own shipping.) The email will also let you upgrade your pledge, if you want to upgrade from PDF to print, or purchase additional print copies. I'll be sending these out in the next few days and am hoping to get all addresses collected by December 1st, so please take a minute to respond as soon as you get the email from BackerKit.
Finally, this kind of snuck by in the first photo above, but I'm happy to reveal the new cover art for the book, featuring an image by Tobias Roetsch:
That's all for now-- keep an eye out for your BackerKit survey, and a month from now, if all goes to plan, the book should be in your hands, too!
