Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a wonderful New Years! I've got a couple of announcements for you. Let's start with the most exciting: Cari's Red Owl charm will now be metal! There is no extra charge if you choose the Red Owl, but the other charms will still be acrylic. Cari also has a quick question for you: would anyone be heartbroken if we did not have the Kiwi charm? If there is anyone who wants it then we will absolutely go ahead with the design, but otherwise we may not offer it.

Also exciting: the cover is completely done! Look at this gorgeous thing -->

Sorry about the watermarks! A necessary nuisance. ^_^

In other news, I'm running a little behind- I haven't quite finished the writing yet, although I hope to be done in the next 3-4 days. I'm also still waiting on few art files so that I can finish the layouts and get the postcards printed. I've also got an artist working on custom faces for the playing cards, which I should be able to send off to the printer as soon as those are done!

Hello everyone! Sorry for the lack of updates lately- I'm still writing, and waiting on a few last pieces from artists, but hopefully I'll have the wordy bits ready for proof-reading in the near future. In the meantime, here are some WIP's of the cover art by the wonderful Namu-the-Orca! All the birds are finished except the Green Peafowl, and that one's coming along nicely! You can see a WIP of the peacock below the full cover.

For a little extra fun, here is a list of all the birds on the cover. Can you identify them all?

- Blue-throated macaw
- Red-fronted macaw
- Red-and-blue lory
- Sun conure
- Spix's macaw
- Lear's macaw
- Glaucous macaw
- Golden parakeet
- Seychelles magpie robin
- Black-faced spoonbill
- Madagascar pond heron
- Stresemann's bushcrow
- Golden-shouldered parrot
- White-bellied heron
- Amber mountain rock thrush
- Kofiau paradise kingfisher
- Kagu
- Javan green magpie
- Gurney's pitta
- Green peafowl

Hey everyone! Most of the artwork is in now and I'm hard at work researching birds and putting the book together! A few of you have already gotten surveys- you'll be getting at least part of your rewards soon, and as soon as I have the rest of the art in I'm going to see about getting things like postcards and playing cards printed and ready to get out to the tiers that don't include physical books.

Photo not working, whoops!

A few people have told me that the image from the last update wasn't working! It works on my computer so I'm not sure how to make sure it's working, but I've tried something a little different this time! Please let me know if you still can't see it:

Sneak peek!

Hey, look what I just got in the mail from Jennifer Miller! I've got them carefully packed away so they'll stay safe until the books are ready and it's time to ship everything out, but Jennifer snapped a picture of them all before she sent them to me:
