Hi folks! Yes, this is the last update about Outlive Outdead. That's because I'm finally close to finishing!
As of today, I have ordered all of the hardcovers and softcovers from Lulu. If you backed at the $25 level, your customized (or not) softcover should already be on its way to your home. (Those are shipped directly from Lulu.) I will be mailing out your stickers and/or other rewards in the next two days.
If you pledged at the $35 or higher, the books will come to me first so I can sign them. Then I'll ship them plus any other rewards to your home. These packages will come from Aurora, Illinois (my beautiful hometown) and NOT from Lulu. Just so you know what to look for. Lulu says it will take a few days to get the books to me, so I'm guessing US residents will get their copy late next week or a little longer. Non-US residents ... I have no clue. International mail isn't an exact science, you know? Sorry about that!
Just because this is the last Kickstarter update doesn't mean I'm unavailable. If you don't get your book, have some questions about the rules, or just want to chat about rpg design, you are always welcome to contact me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
One last thing. I'm going to put Outlive Outdead up for sale in August. Would any of y'all be willing to write an honest review for sites like rpg.net or rpggeek? Customer reviews are the bread-and-butter of small press marketing; they can make or break sales. I cannot offer anything in return--that kinda makes the review suspicious--but it would help my teeny tiny company a lot. I want to stress this is a request for an honest review, not a perfect one. You should be honest in your review.
Well, there you go. It's been a wonderful ride, and it's all thanks to you. Seriously, thank you so much for your support! Remember, email me if you need anything. Take care, and remember: The zombie apocalypse is always just around the corner.
