Black Labyrinth Book I: The Walls of the Castle by Tom Piccirilli was an amazing project and we worked hard on it. But it was extremely labor intensive, very expensive and when all is said and done after shipping the books to customers all over the world we actually lost money on the book.
This Kickstarter campaign will ensure Black Labyrinth Book II is fully funded. It has been designed to cover the printing and binding costs of all editions of the book, shipping the editions to customers around the world and paying our creative contributors.
Customers/DRP readers should look at the Kickstarter as a creative way to preorder Black Labyrinth Book II. All editions of the book are offered during the campaign at their planned retail price with free U.S. shipping included and other bonuses as well. Kickstarter backers will become part of the production process of the book and will get an inside scoop as each stage progresses.Last updated:
Because we’re already offering the books at retail price with free U.S. shipping, discounted international shipping + bonuses we can’t offer any discounts on bulk orders except for the Bulk Black Labyrinth reward level. This level enables international backers to get multiple copies of the book with free international shipping via USPS Airmail M bags shipped to one location chosen upon by the backers. Please visit the reward level section for more details on this bulk reward level.Last updated:

Almost all contributor pledges will be fulfilled via USPS because it is the most affordable and doesn’t have as many fees as other carriers such as UPS or FEDex. We kindly ask backers not to ask for custom shipping requirements as we will ensure all items are packed very securely. For premium package orders other shipping arrangements can be made.Last updated:
