Starstruck Cover Story!
Greetings Steadfast Backers!
In the last few updates, we've spoken about our need to bring in more money, in order to get the books and rewards to you. Because of this, we'll be putting out Harry Palmer's story (minus its epilogue) as a 6-book comic series, before the hardback books are printed. As we've also mentioned, to make this go down easier, we'll be adding some rewards for you!
One way we've to decided to add additional value for our backers is to give the Kickstarter Edition of the book its very own cover! Books printed for distribution to the general public will have different cover art. We will do a print run of 1,000 books with the Kickstarter cover and signature page, only for our backers, for the folks who helped us build our campaign, and for a few folks who missed the Kickstarter, but pre-ordered the book in the months following. So, your book will be a collector's item!
We've also decided that the folks who donated in order to have their likeness appear in the book will receive a page of Michael's actual working sketches of their character. The rest of the additional rewards we're still working out. Donors who backed us at the lower end may be able to pick an extra reward from a list of rewards to be provided. High end donors may also receive working sketches of various scenes from Starstruck: "Old Proldiers Never Die"
So, where are we now? Michael's art, completed. Lee's painting, completed. Todd's lettering, completed and revised (though Elaine is still placing it on the art pages). Glossary and gallery in progress. Layout in progress. This thing is finally coming together, folks, and it looks beautiful!
We'll be getting back to you soon, with more info about Kickstarter fulfillment and extra rewards, as well as news about a Starstruck Coloring Book and other related projects.
Elaine and Michael
