Bumps in the Night Off to the Printer
This is just a quick note to let you folks know that I sent the layout files for "Bumps in the Night" off to our printer this week. They got them today and will start work on generating a proof copy immediately. I expect to get the proof back before the end of next week. After that it'll be another 15 days to generate the full run of "Bumps in the Night," and probably another 10 days to ship it from Michigan to Seattle.
The good news here is that if everything stays on schedule (with something like two weeks of wiggle room built in) then everyone can get their signed copies of "Bumps in the Night" before GenCon. I don't want to have a situation where people who supported this project are showing up at the Pagan Publishing booth at GenCon looking for their signed book only to be told it's either in the mail or I'll be mailing them out when I get back to Seattle. Looks like we've dodged that bullet.
Step two will be to get back on track with everyone about the Skyped Games I'm going to run. Part of this week was spent trying to figure out why my airport kept kicking me offline every four minutes, requiring me to turn the device on and off in order to get another whopping four minutes on line. The good news is that it's not malfunctioning any more. The bad news is that I don't know why... except that the problem had something to do with my router/airport hub and not my laptop. The MacBook Pro worked just fine when I used it with the WiFi available in coffee shops and the local Mac Store. So with any luck we'll be able to get back to doing Skyped games this month.
Finally, now that Bumps is at the printer, I can spend some time concentrating on getting your other rewards out. I've been seriously distracted by another Pagan Publishing project these last weeks, but now it's almost done. I've worked a deal with DriveThruRPG and OneBookShelf to offer four of our Delta Green books as downloadable PDFs and Print on Demand books. The biggest hurtle was getting contracts or fee waivers signed by all the authors, but after a couple weeks of chasing them down and wrangling the legal details, everyone has a contract and everyone is on-board. Any day now we will be making an announcement that four out of print Delta Green books will be available again.
Now that this is almost out of the way, I can get back to completing my rewards for all of you, the folks who were kind enough (and brave enough) to support "Bumps in the Night."
So enough talking... back to working.
