Book Shipments on the way!!!

Posted by Bryan Thomas Schmidt (Creator)

Some of you have already received your books. Others will over the next few days. The final group goes out Monday with international and the $25 and $18 groups. Everything is packed. I just have to do custom forms.

There was an error in the ebook file. They are fixing it, and as soon as I get that, I'll be emailing those out. I should note that the signed ebook thing became problematic, but I will have digital signatures of myself and the headliners, along with those personalizations BUT I will send those along later, as I need time to prepare them and they will be separate from the ebook files, so I want you to be able to read as soon as possible.

They will be coming, however, Just a little later than the rest.

Thanks again for your patience and support! 

I wrapped content for Raygun Chronicles: Space Opera For a New Age last week and that will be going out for reviews, copyediting, etc. this coming week. And we are three stories from wrapping Shattered Shields, the military fantasy anthology I am editing for Baen. I'll be announcing next year's projects soon, including coediting stuff with Cat Rambo, Mike Resnick, and Pierce Watters as well as a solo project or two. 

Stay tuned! And do let me know what you think of Beyond The Sun!!!!

Books On The Way

Posted by Bryan Thomas Schmidt (Creator)

All Backers at $40 and above levels, your copies are in the mail today. For everyone else, I will mail them out Friday. Ebooks should also be in my hands by then. I'll email those out over the weekend, but I must first personalize, etc. as requested. So expect to have all rewards in your hands by next week.

I am mailing media mail, except for overseas, so please be patient. But I fully expect most packages to arrive in 7-10 days. Emails, of course, should be fairly instantaneous.

We expect reviews to start hitting any time. Thanks for your patience through this process and for helping make it happen.

Also, please consider posting reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, and B&N.com. This will help greatly to get the book noticed and increase sales. Just 24 reviews on Amazon, bumps a book up to higher frequency in searches. And that has nothing to do with how good or bad the review is. That frequency increases the higher the number of reviews. So if even half of you review this, we would be getting a ton more traffic.

Again, I hope you enjoy the fruits of our mutual labor. It could not have happened without you!

Kind regards,

Bryan
