It's here, it's here, the day is here!
We are delighted to invite you to BalanceofPowers.org, where our Prologue is waiting for you even as we speak. Regular story updates will begin on Sunday and continue on Sundays thereafter. Subscribers will receive extra tidbits of story in their email from time to time.
Next up: SAVE THE DATE. For those of you who will be attending the live online event, that date is AUGUST 25 at 7pm London time, 4pm Eastern time, and 1pm Pacific time. We'll be sending along details on how to participate before the event. Other Kickstarter rewards are coming, as well — we're aiming to have the newspaper in your hands by the end of the month, for example.
There is one significant change to the plan we've made that we'd like to alert you to. We'd envisioned giving you a massive chunk of text once a week for eight weeks; we have decided that we'd prefer to give you smaller chunks of text once a week for four times as long — that's 32 weeks, for those of you who can't be bothered with the arithmetic.
And finally — thank you, everyone, for your patience. You've waited nearly a year for Balance of Powers, and we've felt awful about the delay. The unsung story here has to do with a six-month battle with HSBC over simply opening a bank account, a sordid tale involving counter-terrorism laws and a very well-traveled sheaf of signature cards. Ugh.
But enough about that — Balance of Powers is here, and we are very excited. We hope you're excited, too. ZOMG. It's real, it's real!
