New Kickstarter Opportunity

Comment

Hi all,

Just wanted to give people a heads up. My first kickstarter was so successful that I'm doing another one for book number two! You can check out the Kickstarter for Copper Centurion here...

Update #4

Final Update

Comment


The End is Here

Well, the end of this Kickstarter project!

As far as miracles go, this one is complete! I've uploaded the ebook files online tonight and the Print Edition is ready to go on Createspace. It should pop over to Amazon within the next few days.

I've sent out a backer report to everyone in each group asking for emails and ebook preferences and addresses (For those of you who reached the signed book level). Please send these back to me asap! I want you to get your reward! This should be the last update I post.

Please, feel free to visit me and subscribe to my blog at danielottalini.com or check out my smashwords and book webpage.

If you have any questions, feel free to shoot me a message on here, I'll answer any questions or respond to any comments.

And thank you, from the bottom of my heart. The thanks and generosity of strangers never fails to impress me. I aim on taking what you gave me and helping others in this kickstarter-sphere (is that a word!?). Thanks again,

Sincerely (With much happiness and relief)

Daniel

Update #3

The Final Stretch

Comment

Hi all!

As of this post, I have the final review paperback copies of Brass Legionnaire headed my way. Looks like I'll be able to start sending out the paperbacks by early June (Which was right when I said I would!) The ebook versions should be ready within the next two weeks. If you didn't donate enough to grab a paperback edition as part of your loot, there's still a chance!

If you go to my blog, I've got a competition running to get one of the first edition, signed, copies of Brass Legionnaire. The link is here! It's pretty simple, all you have to do is comment in the comments section and leave your email if you are a non-wordpress user. I promise I won't use them for anything else!

I'll send one more update once everything is published and ready. The book looks awesome, and I've properly thanked everyone in the acknowledgements section (Even if you didn't response to my messages!). Be on the look out for a survey in the next few weeks asking about your chosen ebook format if you picked that reward tier.

As always, check out my blog or the book website for more details!

Hi all!

Just wanted to let everyone know that the illustrations have been completed and the book is now being formatted. The people doing it for me have given me a timeline of roughly two weeks, so hopefully I can share the final project with you then.

Here are some links below where you can keep up-to-date on other Brass Legionnaire developments.

Update #1

What's New - Early April

3 comments

Hi Everyone,

Thanks again for your support. Here are a few updates that I wanted everyone to know about!

1.) I've withdrawn the funds from Amazon, and a chunk is going towards the editing cost of the book. The editor has just finished and we are in the process of reviewing the final manuscript.

2.) Other parts of the fund are going towards the cover art, illustrations, and formatting costs. Of these, the cover art is done, illustrations are partially complete, and the formatting simply awaits the final manuscript!

3.) I've commissioned something extra special for you all, so when it is ready I'll be sending out an email request survey :-)

4.) At the rate we are going (The entire team plus myself) I'm going to estimate (Really estimate, not a yes definite but a probably) that we'll be ready by May sometime, early June at the absolute latest.

5.) For some more up to date comments and ideas, check out www.danielottalini.com for more up to date information.

I'll message again with another update in about two weeks (or sooner if anything big happens)

Thanks again for all your wonderful support! I couldn't do it without you!

- Daniel
